Hey guys, I recently worked on a beauty image for my portfolio and spent a lot of time on retouching. Hence I wanted to share the retouched PSD file for those who are interested in the workflow and the techniques I used. RETOUCHED FILE SHARED is for you people who might benefit from it.

You can click on one of the images to start downloading the retouched file. Unfortunately, the file consists of too many layers so I had to down-scale like hell. But I wanted all fixes and layers visible instead of flattening or merging layers.
