I ♥ Faces fix it fridays

I love I ♥ Faces fix it Fridays! A lot of time goes into post processing that this gives me the opportunity to share how I approach the process by taking a random image that i heart faces posts on their site and "fixing it".

To edit this image, I opened it into Photoshop and first cropped it how I imagined it to look. After cropping, I opened up the curves and used the white doppler to select my white point and whitened the whites. I then adjusted the RED and BLUE curves. After the coloring was how I wanted it, I opened up my Kubota actions and sharpened the image and smoothed it in areas. The second image I added a flora bella texture to it and erased some off of the girls skin.
