i have recently downloaded an action script form the adobe website which was called "tony_soft__2_blur" or something... for photoshop. It was free and you literally open up a photo, and start the action then 10 seconds later you have a really nice touch to the skin tones... give it a try http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail&extid...
After playing around with such actions, you can step back each stage to work out how it was applied in case you ever want to do it step by step yourself.
The other effect, darkening of her clothes, i would do by highlighting the area, and then selecting image, adjustment, selective colour or replace colour, and change the settings of the colour you select.
Hope this helps

Open a portrate photo or something...

ensure you have actions open... (click on windows, then ensure actions has a tick on it.

Now, in the top right corner, just under the x of the actions window, there are three lines and a down arrow. Click on that.

Now select load actions.

Select the location you downloaded the action

Now the action is in your window.

Click on the first drop down, and then the play button should become active.

Press Play.

Sit back and watch it happen
