Smoothness?

Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone can tell me how to achieve the smooth-icon look. I've looked everywhere, and cannot find any solution to this. I've tried the duplicate the base --> gaussian layer --> softlight/overlay mode, but it's not what I want.

This is the icon i would like to achieve in terms of "smoothness":



And, here is mine:



Perhaps, we have the same result, but the extra texture/coloring the original icon maker has accentuates my icon less because mine is darker?? And therefore, doesn't show the smoothness of her skin as well?

Thank you!
