try Hue/Saturation with the target tool. Pick problem spot then move hue all the way up to -100 then tighten up in the other color slider underneathe colorize so that you get only the areas you want. when you get the area/spots you want take hue slider back  0. Play with saturation and get it where you like you can change the hue a bit also during this time if you like. Also, you can mask out and bring it in where you want. This is what I do when I have a problem like that.

I personally would d&b first then color correct later. Also, I might check my raw conversion and make the image a bit more flat.

Remove it with the color sliders in the camera raw saturation and luminance tabs 
before you bring it into photoshop.

I don't know how to explain it anymore than that but one way would be the hue/saturation like I tried to explain.

The other would be to start all over with the raw conversion and fix there.

So all skin has multiple colors in it and you can really tell when light is cast on the skin. An easy fix is once you have the over all tone you want, take a color sample the forehead usually works the best, with the sample tool, create a new layer above it and paint over the entire skin area. Then select the blending mode to hue. this will take the color cast away from the different areas. Its subtle in your image but you can tell the difference. Especially if the model has makeup that does not match the rest of the skin tone.
Does that make sense?

Heres 2 examples. The original is the one on the right. you can tell the

Try a selection with the lasso tool and play with curves ( blue channel ), if it saturates use the same selection with a hue/saturation layer.
