Create Skin Texture Using Clipping Masks
After we’ve brushed over the shadows underneath the eye, it’s important that skin texture we create is applied only to the brushed area. Using a clipping mask is a great way to achieve a seamless transition between the original skin and our homemade skin.
Using Smart Objects & Filters
Using smart objects will allow you to treat your filters such as gaussian blur almost like layers, letting you change the opacity and visibility after they’ve been applied. To create a realistic skin texture, you can create a layer with 50% grey, add noise, and turn it into a smart object. using a combination of the gaussian blur and emboss filters will create a perfect skin texture over the brushed area.
