You did a good job deleting her green cast. You also did real well bring out her skin tones. The coloring turned out well. "Great Job"

Nice work. There's a vertical line above her head, a little to the right. Also some traces of wrinkles in the background. I would just fill the background with black.

Purely personal preference, I would reduce the yellow in the skin tones just a bit and add a vignette ...

make an adjustment layer (it doesn't matter what kind, you're not changing
any settings) with a black mask, change blend to overlay and paint white
on mask where eye make up is

I think you should reduce the wrinkles under her eyes.
There is a highly visible bit of stray hair on the right side (of the screen).
There's a little patch right in the middle where I would put back some hair by cloning.
And as a personal preference, I would trim a bit of the eyebrows and use some liquify on the right to give the illusion of a bit more neck there.

You have to even the skin tone I'm seeing a lot of colors..... also you could use more d&b on the face. Start again with this image this retouch is not good.

Edit: I was talking for the first image.
