I Heart Faces - Fix it Friday #86

Is this little girl gorgeous or what!? As you may know from my current facebook search, I am currently looking for a red head to participate in a fun photo session! When I saw this come up for Fix-it Friday on I heart faces I just had to play a little. It's the first time I have participated in this and it was fun!

Here is what I did with my edit. I first opened the photo in ACR  and increased the exposure and fill light a bit, using recovery and blacks to bring it to where it looked right to me. I then opened it in CS5  cropped it, and ran Coffee Shop's Powder Room action. I used various layers from the action, adjusting the opacity of each. Included was an eye defining and sharpening, skin softening and a skin lightening layer. I flattened the image and used the patch tool to take out the dark circles under her eyes. I then used another action to whiten the whites of her eyes and take out the red a bit. I also took some of the red out of her skin.  Finally, I used Florabella's Cosmo action and adjusted or deleted various layers.

She is just too cute..and I love the photo, too..such a sweet pose.

Here is the original that I had to work with:
