Lana Del Ray

Achieving this brush-stroke-esque effect

I've seen this effect used quite a lot recently and I can't for the life of me work it out.

Do you see how the image looks almost as if it's been painted? I've tried quite a few effects out but nothing has replicated it.
I've seen the exact same effect used on quite a few graphics so I'm inclined to believe it's a premade photoshop action rather than the result of some obscure tutorial.

Any help is appreciated <3

Oh and I'm using photoshop!
