How much of this is photoshop and how much original makeup for skin look?

Feq separation and D&B until no signs of skin texture are left.  Probably a little extra shadow and high lights added after to bring some depth back.

Thanks. Maybe I will. This is a look I want to add to my techniques.

Quick tip from a retoucher before you do. The D&B technique sometimes makes the model look fake, but opposite of airbrushing. Also, it takes a long time to learn and hours and hours to perfect, but if you are up for it, all the more power to ya. I tend to only use this technique on the highest quality of fashion, beauty, and glamour photos, (stuff for magazines) because of the time it takes to do it. The other techniques I use often get an equally good result, but with other effects, all the while keeping the model looking human.

But take a crack at it, I'd like to see how they turn out.

Ulorin Vex has some of the clearest, most beautiful skin you may ever be fortunate enough to photograph.

I have photographed Ulorin before and her skin is very pale and clear.
