    The trick I used in this photo:

    with the pink dress and blue shirt and in others is follows. I use the lasso tool to select the area I want to color on a new layer. Then I use the paint bucket to fill in the area. After that I just turn down the transparencyon that layer. I hope this helps, it's just my backwards way of doing it
