Open a picture that you want to retouch in Adobe Photoshop. I used the next picture to work with:
Duplicate your picture in the Layers Tab and clear everything except the face skin like this:
Now choose Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with the settings (for the layer which you duplicated):
Adjust the duplicate layer if needed, with a small brush tool, change the brightness and contrast of the â€œparentâ€ layer (Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast) using the settings:
And thatâ€™s the results: a beautiful model photo for your magazine.
