Hey Karen!
I was wondering, what effect do you use to get the skin so clear looking?

Hi Lue,
This model has particularily beautiful clear skin, but I normally select the skin with the magic wand, put it on a new layer and then run a slight gaussian blur. I make sure to erase the eyes, nostrils and lips so they retain sharpness :)
