Looks heavy handed and it should have an effortless feel. I like the original is better.   Take the retouching down a bit and see if that helps.

I agree with heavy-handed. Also the d&b on her left cheek (camera right) is splotchy.

hey there.
Looks like you were focusing more on her face, and cheeks. You should get rid of some of the fly away hairs that are toward her neck. The shadow by her nose I don't really like but isn't necessary to get rid of.

I also think you should fix her eyebrows. If you'd like to shape them at a straight angle try "shift" clicking while using the clone stamp tool, or one of the healing brushes.
