What's with all the artifacts on her cheeks and chin? Looks like too much sharpening applied.

Yea probably. I think it was a combo of over sharpening and too much texture layer on my airbrush action.

Better?

I really like the image. IF anything from her cheek near the bottom of the ear to the beginning of her bangs the makeup in the fine facial hair and it looks sharpened but that might just be the way it is.

No worries though. I like the image.

I tried to clean the fine hair up but its when its basically right next to her lips. I bet it could have been helped more by slightly tweaking the lighting.

That could be it. Do you want me to take a wack at it?

I gave it a go. Let me know if you want me to delete it. I softened the sharpening artifacts on the right side of her cheek and chin. I also corrected the orange blob of hair to match the rest of her brunette hair.

so if you don't mind me asking what method do you use to soften? I use to use a gaussian blur with a black mask and paint softness on the skin but now I have an action that has a blur layer then a texture layer. A lot of times it looks good but sometimes I tone down the texture layer. Is it best to start the edit with the softening then at the end add sharpening or clarity? In this case I added some clarity first then softened.

For your picture, I just duplicated layer, applied Gaussian blur, created a layer mask, and slowly painted (10-20% opacity) in the blur along her right cheek and chin back in.

As for the blur layer + texture layer action, I think you're referring to frequency separation. I use that too on my portraits but instead of an automatic action, I do the steps manually... that way I can control how much I Gaussian blur I apply to the "blur" layer. Some photos need more blur, other less.

I rarely use clarity on skin. Sometimes I'll use "negative" clarity to soften skin then, layer mask it, paint on the areas that need it.

I have never seen eyes like these. No work done on the eyes or skin on this one!
