My pictures, after I'm done with PP, the skin color seems to be off. It doesn't look right to me. I only do basic PP, no skin smoothing, or bluring. just basic lightroom PP.

This is what I'm after.

In Photoshop select a brush and set it to 0 percent Hardness, and Opacity to 2 or 3 percent. You can even turn on the Airbrush option if you desire.
In the Layers Palette create a blank new layer and set the layer Blend Mode to Darken
Now with your brush selected, hold down the ALT key to sample the desired skin tone. You will see the foreground color change.
Now paint with smooth even strokes over the areas you want to retouch. As you change locations resample the skin tone for that area.
When you're finished painting you can adjust the opacity of the layer to suit your taste.

how about just using lightroom... I have lots of pictures...
Can picture #1 be achieved using only lightroom?

Yes. You can certainly apply a vignette and make global adjustments with Lightroom and even set up presets to repeat the same "look" over a number of pictures. But for certain localized edits/adjustments, you need a program like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
