The actions in Pro Retouch 2 are designed to be as easy as possible to use. In most cases, simply run the action, and then use the brush tool to paint the effect into the photo where you'd like it to apply. Most of the actions are very forgiving, and don't require super-precise masking to work effectively. A soft brush and a few seconds of painting is usually enough. Each action displays instructions to help you along, so you're never caught wondering how something works, and the action names are straightforward and simple to eliminate guesswork.
