Too many late nights

Aim:to reduce dark circles and shadows under eyes and general blotchiness on the face especially those in older people or those who want their subjects to look not so tired.

In Photoshop:
Open image
Tone and adjust general image to personal liking.
Select the the mid range colour of the skin using the eyedropper tool.
Select the brush tool and pick a very soft edged brush.
Switch from normal mode to lighten.
Set opacity to 50%-25% but no greater.
Apply brush to area that needs to be blended in one stoke at first. See results and decide if this will fix.
If not then reduce the opacity of select a darker colour.
if yes, then continue and try not to over blend the area or it will look 'fake'.

This trick can also be used to soften any harsh highlights or rid of double chins that only happen when the lighting is bad...or so i say it is. Just try not to over do anything.
