the way i do it is just a bunch of shades

try this: get a light and put it on the face light shining on the face and remember where the shading is and where the lighter parts are then paint to that light and dark skin colors

hope that helped

-for the greater good

Faol provided you with some good links but in case you're still confused here's what I do:

Basecoat everything with Dark Flesh.
Paint on Dwarven Flesh everywhere except around the really deep and shaded parts (around the lower-mid nose, below and above the chin, around the eyes.)
Highlight with 2:1 Elf Fleshwarven Flesh the cheekbones (high cheeks) nose, and any other jutted/pointy parts (possibly chin)
Extreme highlight with Elf Flesh the nose and the really high parts (maybe a thin line by the cheekbones)
Shade lightly (don't over do it) with Brown Ink.

Hope that helped, but I feel it was probably rather useless after faol's links

Now at all Muffinator your way just may as well be the easiest way to do skin very easy to read and follow plus you use GW paint, which by far are the most common paints used (IMVHO) *thumbs up to Muffinator* and the more in put the better you can never go wrong with this many choices

The Lord of the Rings part of the GW website has guides for painting skin.

I prefer this method:
Basecoat with Bestial brown
Highlight with Dwarf Flesh
Apply A brown ink wash
Highlight Dwarf Flesh
Highlight Elf Flesh on the raised areas.

Quite similar to the Muffinator's guide but a little different.
