---------------------------------------------------
1.) start with middle tone.
2.) shade in the general lighting with all of the colours, with a hard round brush at a low opacity.
3.) continue to shade, with a bigger hard round brush, same colours, and smoothing out the tones.
4.) continue smoothing and blending (you can use the 'smudge' tool if you wish.)
5.) fix some of the lighting, taking into consideration the background and reflections.
6.) on a new layer, with a soft airbrush on full opacity, mark in some pink, blue, green, and ugly yellow.
7.) change the layer to 'soft light' and change the opacity accordingly.
8.) on a new layer, add a bit of texture using spatter brushes, with black and white.
9.) change the layer to 'soft light' and about a 45% opacity.
10.) on a new layer, add more texture, again with black and white.
11.) change the layer to 'softlight' on a 50% opacity.
12.) on a new layer, fill in with grey, and add 'noise' then 'spatter' effect, set it to about a 3-8% opacity on softlight.
add any extra details such as viens, moles, freckles, extra lighting, more detail in the skin pores, ect.

Are there any other ways to blend other than smudging?

Of course!  Layering colours together with low opacity until it appears seamless, or blurring it works as well.
