Well I've had a couple of people interested in the way I retouch, so I put together a little walkthrough. Not a tutorial, but it'll show you how I retouched this image.

I know there are easier ways of doing things, but I wanted to show you how I like to work!

To understand this you need a basic understanding of Photoshop.

I use Photoshop CS and a Wacom tablet.

This is very similar to what i do but once i get to the lips for the color i use box blur to make it look more natural around the edges, and blend better on the lips. :)

Thanks a lot for this tutorial, it's just wonderful and very helping. I simply love the way you retouch portraits, but I think it takes a lot of time to learn. You make it seem so piece-of-cake but I know it's not ;) Anyway, thanks :hug:

Thanks for taking the time to do this Christina! I've been curious about trying this out myself but just had no idea where to even start! Your style is very unique so it was nice to get an insight into how you work.

Thanks again! :)

How do you physically work with your tablet, ie; on a table, on your knees in front of screen, on the ground, whatever? Just curious, I.m trying to set up differently, and can't find a confortable solution.

Brilliant! And thanks for the hair tips! I always mess up the stray hair-strands when I re-colour. I never thought to lower the opacity for them.
