Make skin color tone fair

Step 1) First make sure to create a duplicate of your current image by Pressing (Duplicate Layer: Ctrl + J) so that you have a backup of your initial Photo.

Step 2) Rename your current layer to "Work" so that you won't get confused on which layer you are working layer as shown in the image.

Step 3) Now, increase the brightness of the image using the Curves window. (Curves: Ctrl +M)

Step 4) Now adjust the curves graph on the upper area of the graph to fill light on the image as shown in the Image

Step 5) Add layer Mask: Now press the Alt key and press on the Mask Icon on the bottom of the Layer window (Alt + Mask Button)

Step 6) Now take a brush tool and Paint it on the face area so that the face area of the top layer gets displayed. You need to adjust the brush size and hardness according to your needs

Step 7) In the above image you will notice that the mask is only applied to the face part of the face where we have applied the brush.

2) Changing Lip Shade in Photoshop

Step 8) Now we will add red color to the lips

Step 9) Select Pen tool and then select the lips area. 

To make the selection of lips easy you can zoom the image by pressing Z Key and dragging the image.

Remove Black Spots from the Photo

As you can see above in the initial photo there are some black spots which we need to remove to make the face nice and good-looking. In order to do this, we need to use Clone Stamp Tool (s)

Press S on your keyboard to activate Clone Stamp Tool.

Photoshop's Clone Stamp Tool helps us to duplicate the selected part of an image and copy that duplicate part onto another area of an image. Using this clone tool we will remove the black spots from the face.

When we press the Alt key with Stamp tool the icon will change to Stamp and By clicking on the particular area it will take the clone of that area and apply the area where you click without pressing ALt Key, as shown in the Image
