Good day all
Since its rather difficult to describe what Im asking for, I found a shot on Flickr that is a prime example (photo example) (external link)

Ive tried different searches, but nothing has produced an answer.
My question is, how does a person achieve these types of skin tones in PP?
See how the shadowing is rather grey, but the skin is creamy and pleasant?

Ive been wracking my brain with searches and a lot of practice in photoshop, to no avail.
Any insight would be much appreciated!
thanks so much, nicole

looks like some creative layer masking...

to me, it appears that there was some surface blur on the image, then masked out where it wasn't needed, then the skin layer was also slightly desaturated and smoothed, to create a very flat gradient in the skin... nothing harsh....

it also looks like all of that was masked out of the lips, keeping them vibrant and red.

this is likely a large manipulation of numerous images to create the final product along with layer masking and effects on each layer.

just my .02c

I'd suggest Photoshop Elements as a "starting kit", then grab some books and online resources to get you started!!
