The Ultimate Beauty Retouching Photoshop Tutorial

Check out another of my videos: “BREAKDOWN: Select and Mask vs. Refine Edge – Photoshop CC”

Written tutorial and downloadable files are HERE:


This tutorial is all about beauty retouching and how to use adjustment layers, lighting, dodging and burning, and frequency separation to create stunning skin tones and textures for a true beauty photography retouch. This tutorial should work just fine with most versions of Photoshop and you can even download the RAW file Iโ€™m using and follow along as we move through the tutorial!

    The crazy part is Retouching Academy is selling this same style for $149 and I remember watching this in 2015 when it came out.

    I love to watch and follow your video, This is the easy way to follow your step by step procedure. I'm glad I found this video and it helps me a lot to learn more about Photoshop. Thanks for sharing your video.

    the point of a tutorial is to explain slowly dude you talk so fast and do everything expecting everyone has your level of experience its ridiculous ….

    Are you the same guy who narrates on the CBR channel? You sound exactly the same lol

    Very extensive tutorial. Oh! Instead of using gaussian blur, we can feather the mask nondestructively in mask properties (double click on mask icon)

    Now that's a straightforward way of showing us the basics of Frequency Separation. Thanks so much! There's only one tiny thing missing in my opinion: a before & after right after the last step.

    Just a note on your eye retouch. You refer to the white of the eye as the retina. You can't see the retina…it is in the back of the eye. The white of the eye is called the sclera. I did like the way you presented each part. Thank you for an excellent tutorial.
