      How would you go about touching up a face or skin in a video? I am using all Adobe programs.

      the best way is make-up before filming. I’d suggest one easy way is to duplicate the clip in a second layer, apply a gausian blur and desaturate the color a bit and set a blend mode to “soft light” (try different blend modes) to get a softer look to the whole clip.

      to do that to the face only may require masking, motion, and or rotoscoping, all of which, there are other people on this forum, that may be able to help more…

      Don’t know if you refer to retouching just color or appliying soft filters (some blur) to “erase” face defects.

      If don’t want to affect the rest of the image you need to define the area you want to color correct. You can do it through masks or mattes. Usually will need to feather or blur the borders.

      Then apply any filter as needed (some experimentation here) until you obtain the desired effect over the image and using the mask apply that process just to the face or body.

      The same with CC (Color Correction) where you can work on HLS (hue, lightness and saturation) for the highlights, medium and shadows.

      This in general applies to any decent editing suite. I can’t elaborate in Premiere because don’t have any experience.

      Hope this help
