Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using masks to color correct, part of Photoshop Retouching: Faces.
…Now that our masks are in place, we…can use them selectively to tweak certain areas.…It's a great way to open areas for detail and to balance skin tone.…Skin tones absorb so much color and always need a little balancing.…I know that it's natural to have different shades…of color throughout your body, but in terms of…printing, you want the color to be as balanced,…so as not to have one arm that looks red.…While the other looks kind of yellow toned, here's one of my…oldest, old school tricks in overall skin balancing.…
To be done right here in this skin mask, so let me just close that.…Open up this skin mask, and, variations of this move can…be used on all kinds of skin types, all different colors.…Let's get our hue sat. Let's make a hue sat adjustment in layer.…Option+Cmd+U, let's hit OK.…And again we're going to put that right into our skin mask here.…So let me just crank all the saturation down so…you can see how it's only being effected in there.…
So, what I do is, we go into our reds right here.…And in the reds, we're going to do a minus seven saturation.…
