You might want to try out the "Replace Color" feature. Find it at Image>Adjustments>Replace Color.

A good practice is to make a snapshot in the history pallet BEFORE you use the Replace Color filter. Then, when using the filter, overshoot your desired color slightly. Then make another snapshot.

Then, using the history brush with a soft brush and an opacity of 10-20%, and the origin for the history brush set to the first of your new snapshots, you can paint areas of the face to restore parts that were changed too much. If you go too far, set the history brush to the second snapshot and brush back the changes. You will find that you have a tremendous amount of control with this method.

Good luck and have fun,

David B.

This is a current skin tone you have defined yourself? and you want the skin tone to be all one colour?

I like D_Brugge's method. But I was thinking, variations. I figure if the skin tone is off, then the other colours have to be off by the same degree. With variations, once you note how much of each tone you add with the first one, you can apply the same exact pattern to others in the set without having to experiment with each one.

Image -> Adjust -> Variations --- Old version of Photoshop on this machine, don't know for sure it is the same place in CS2
