I am repainting my house but the one area I am nervous in is that of my living room ceiling.There are tape marks running the entire length of the ceiling in about 4 areas.

I don't know if the ceiling needs to be totally skimmed or if an extra coat or two will hide the imperfections.

If it does need to be reskimmed how difficult is it to skim a ceiling ( with recessed lights)and also could I maybe just try and skim the tape areas and smooth it out 6- 12 inches away from the tape lines and then fine sand.

All thoughts welcome.

I would think that you could just skim out the tape joints and get the ceiling looking good. Once you have skimed it you will need to prime the entire ceiling with a latex drywall primer and then finish with a latex ceiling paint as they dry flatter and do not show up imperfections like a regular wall paint will.
