The model's skin is red all over - just imagine the colour of a newborn. What would you do? Is there anyway to tone it down in camera? Use foundation to cover up everywhere?

This is what I have done PP

Does the skin tone look OK?
I still find some streaks of yellowish - is this normal?
I would like to hear your thoughts. Be harsh, I don't care.

The current skin tone is not exactly human... the image leaves one with the impression that you were sepia toning a selectively de- saturated image.
You may want to ask for help with the original in the retouching forum.

I don't think it looks natural, but it doesn't look bad.  Most of the shots in fashion looks anything but natural.  So, if it's a look you like, go for it.  If not, then, bring back some magenta
