1) Healing tool to remove some blemishes and miscellaneous hair in front of mouth and cheek.
2) Blurred duplicate layer to create softness of skin, masking eyes, mouth, hair and background. Pulling back the opacity to the desired softness.
3) Sharpened the eyes/mouth.
4) Whitened teeth and whites of eyes
