Correcting skin tones in a portrait

And let's go ahead and just isolate those two images so we simplify our view on screen. And let's go first to Karin, now let's open her up with the Develop module and just to review what a good healthy skin tone looks like, let's put our Eyedropper over there and take a look at those RGB values.

Then you can fine tune from there as to whether you want things to look a little bit redder. Or a little bit greener depending upon the skin tone, or the lighting, and the nationality and so forth...
