Selected photo, cropped, removed background. Selected floral background - gaussian blurred and adjusted colors to match.

Now for the eyes. Already tweaked a bit from my pageant background. Enlarged greatly with free transform. Removed natural lens flare in eyes, created new with airbrush tool. Created new layer and set to multiply. Airbrushed in the shadows around the eyes and face. When finished I desaturated a bit and hit it with a watercolor filter at about 60%

Absolutely superb, you've really captured the Keane theme. The shadows, texture and colouring are spot on. I particularly like the eye shadowing, just how she does it. I think I should try again now................

The detail is incredible and the eyelashes are superb. I'm still learning to use a tablet. So my lash attempts are rough. Overall very impressive.

would love to know how you did the eyelashes. That seems to be where I fumble.

Oh, those EYES!!! Gorgeous! Her skin is luminescent also -- she could be one of those little elfin creatures that sit on toadstools and take rides on butterflies...
Hadn't seen this challenge -- so I'm late with the kudos, but sincere.
