Magazines sharpen their images, not blur them.
If you want a clean face, you'll have to go in with a healing stamp and remove those flying hair and makeup manually.
Then use Dodge And Burn (on 2 curve method maybe) to scrub out any blotches beneath the skin.
However, your photos are very vivid and shows a lot of variance.
Thanks Jayc Yu. Could you tell me which ones are the problem photos in your opinion?

Your work is ridiculous to me. Far to much post editing, all of it looks like a bad comic book.
Also some of your picture choices are just strange. The picture of the girl "running" and the one following are terrible. Poor facial expression in both pictures and neither adds to your portfolio.
I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to work toward in your career but it will probably take a lot of hard work to get there.
Ouch!! lol. I'm going for key art, which is typically dynamically-lit and a tad eccentric. Video game box art, movie posters, promo shots for TV shows, ads and select mags. I'm trained under the Slickforce retouching technique.
I think they're kinda cool. It's an illustrative look but if that's your thing you seem to be on top of it. Or getting there. The processing is interesting.
The running girl fell a little flat for me too but maybe I don't get it.
Thats the second time about the running girl. I've tossed her and replaced her with a composite shot.
Also replaced the Pink Pinup girl with a different shot of her.
