    Its usually called "air brushing" and take it from me, quite difficult to achieve a good effect without making it look shopped.

    Yes, that's a good tutorial. The dust and scratches filter helps reduce that china doll look you often see. You could also add a new adjustment layer and use the Photo Filter set to sepia with a density of 50% and the preserve luminosity box checked; do a little more work on the eyes and finally, make a new layer and use the High Pass filter (great for sharpening) at around 30% opacity and set it to overlay.

    I believe the easiest way to get the effect you are looking for is to use a horribly complex technique only mastered by profeesionals, called "make up".

    I know this girl who has so much skin-lightening makeup on, she looks either like a ghost or that she's just seen one.

    I find Natsia's tuorial link surprizing: Digital photographers spend so much time and effort making a picture as sharp and as noise free as possible and here comes this tutorial that adds blur and noise to the pic?

    Detail in some areas is good . . in others not so good.
