Photoshop retouching - Ann's portrait

If anybodys been looking at my blog, they might have realized I am in photoshop-retouching mode right now. I been trying to achieve a way of making people look prettier without
making them look 'photoshoped'..u know. I think I have gotten better than what I posted last night :)
Well, I have followed step by step instructions from here, but did somethings my way:
A very nice tutorial for retouching. What I did differently was that, I've used a combination of healing brush, spot healing brush, patch tool and cloning stamp to remove blemishes and patches. To reduce the redness in the area near Ann's nose, I straight away used colour balance and levels...which nobody recommends...but its okay.
Well, she looks equally pretty before and after the retouching, but I am pleased with the results anyways. Maybe we can change her hair and eye colour, then it'll be a real makeover.
See the pics below.

It's interesting to see just how permeant digital memory has become in our lives. It seems like everytime I turn my head, I see something with a card slot or USB port, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how much cheaper memory has become lately...

Gahhhhh... I shouldn't be moaning and groaning. I can't make it through a day without using my R4 / R4i!
