Color Cast Question

I have this photo that I took yesterday evening, and I noticed that her blue shirt is casting blue on her jaw line and hand. What is the best way to deal with casts like that?

Sorry if it's too large for here. I wanted you to be able to see what I was talking about.

And feel free to CC on anything else!

Do you use Photoshop? Make a new layer, brush tool, change the color to a good skin color on her face, brush with low opacity over the cast (I do 10-20%), then change the kind of later to 'color'. Easy & quick!

For CC, I wish the angle were straight on or she was giving some interaction to the camera. It make me wonder who she's looking at, kwim?

Yeah, she was so not into it yesterday. Turns out, she got sick when she got home. Sad

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to have to give that at try!

Kris I didn't know that method, you learnt something new every day!
