I'm not entirely sure what you mean - you could use smudge, or just create an overlay layer and use dodge and burn tools to create the highlites and shadows. You really don't need a special brush - just the default soft ones with reduced opacity should do the trick.

Paint with whichever brushes you're most comfortable with - there is no "recipe" for texture painting that works every time; you simply work with whatever you want to. The final result comes from your own skill, not the brushes you use. If you're having problems with blending and such in your painting, then I'd recommend you practice your painting techniques and try to improve your actual skill, rather than trying to find a magic brush that makes it all better.

I'd also recommend that unless you're specifically going for a handpainted, stylised look, you use photographs for texturing skin.

I don't mean to sound rude, but if you re-post this thread one more time, you're going to be banned for spamming. There is absolutely no necessity whatsoever to keep posting it again and again in different forums.
