Great work and picture big_smile.

There are some stray hairs at the top of the head.
I think there is some yellow/green color cast in the teeth
A little fix in liquify of the left side of the bottom lip, it looks like out of place in profile view.

Some hair light for separation from the background.

maybe it is my vision but here eye does not seem in focus - if I am correct some lightening and sharpening?

her eye also looks quite small for her face and for the composition - perhaps select and free transform for size / enlarge?

There seems to be a lot of missing facial structure in the region from below her eye to her upper lip -  has it been over-smoothed or blurred?

the line of the cheek does not look quite anatomically correct either

not a fan of the cutt off arms / hands - and I am wondering if a re-crop that was a bit shorter and tighter might improve things a bit?

You have so much beautiful images in your port! But I really don`t like the look of this one, to me it has no glamour. I understand the contrast of this image between the bright face and the dark, but I think the face is maybe still overexposed and is looking too flat in the colors, in the brightness and in the sharpness. I´m sure this image would be look absolutely great with the right retouch, because the shoot looks good!

Shirt is way too dark. Cant see any detail. Seems over-contrasted.
