I think you have done a great job, looks like you spent a lot of time on it.
For some reason I get a feeling of too much on the iris of the eyes though, that maybe only a question of tastes though,
there is a line of light right underneath her eyebrows that bugs me,
she lost her bone structure, makes her face look fake in contrast to the hair.

You have a few edges that are not quite right -lips, eyebrows (the bottom edge), the liner (there is a white edge between the lashes and the liner and it should not be like that). Her teeth look a bit too bright and soft.

Thanks for the feedback guys smile

I agree my lines are a bit harsh and unnatural sad

Hi FeatheredPixels ,

I like those gentle tones and subtle retouch. Apart from what being said by fellow retouchers I would work on the eyebrows. I would prefer to keep that natural curve on the bottom line and the cut looks too clean to my eye. I like what you done with lips. They look saucy . I wouldn't hesitate to leave that catch light on the nose tip it gives a dimension to nose. Again I wish I could squeeze that much from the photo.  smile
