How can I make a natural looking skin colour in After Effects?
I have a black and white clip, and I want to colour the man's face, I have a rotoscope around it, and I just need to know what tool, or filter, or whatever, can I use to get a natural looking skin colour?
Thank you.

Curves, Levels, Tritone, Hue/Saturation, Colorama, CC Toner, and several others.
It's a question of personal preference really. Take Curves, for example: by adjusting the red channel up, you'll start getting some pinkish tones. Tweak with the other two channels until you're happy. Or use any of the other color effects you feel like.
