Since you are the Makeup Artist, the only question would be about the models fingernails, they seem plain rather then the expected long polished elegant nails this look screams for.

Side note pointing the fingers at the camera will make them appear shorter

^^ this. I would even consider retouching in some red nail polish, same color as her lips.

I agree with the others about the fingernails.

Also, the face is looking blue.

Did you have any say in the jewelry/accessories? That metal band around the model's upper arm is too small; it makes her upper arm look almost flabby, the way it pops out of the band.

The first one would look great as a black and white - the color is not adding to the image and is a bit garish - the black and white would enhance the arty quality w/the cool reflection and composition and since the highlights from the beauty dish are very crisp I think the photog could get a good range of tones.

It would also be nice if the photog removed the creases by the armpit issue and made the upper arm more skinny in Photoshop due to the small armband issue someone pointed out.

2nd one is really nice...
