Here is one of the toughest images I have had to retouch.  What are your thoughts?

Tough is a relative term, obviously. Only thing that I can see as stand out awry, is the texture on the cheek. Although it is there in the original, it would probably be best eradicated.

Well done on trying to retain skin texture. There are two things that  I've noticed - there's a patch on her cheek that needs to be healed. Also, the highlight on the side of her nose makes it look a bit unnatural.

Overall, I like it!

Looks to me like you should take the retouching back some. The eye & highlights look artificial, nice job though.

Only mine 2 cents
You have lost face volume under  left eye and  nasolabial folds area

Eye looks the same size to me. Maybe with the color pop it appears to look a tad smaller especially with the erasing of the undereye circles and mascara. The texture isn't even thru out the image. The side of the nose bridge looks awkward. I don't think a highlight looks good there. Should of just gotten rid of the finger too.  I don't feel like it has significance in the image.
