Pam retouch challenge

opened in Photoshop cc
increased overall exposure using a levels adjustment
Lightened the eyes using a curves adjustment and an inverted mask allowing me to only apply the adjustment to the eyes
I created another curves adjustment to darken the lips and deepen the red a bit, again using an inverted mask to apply the adjustment to selected area.
Then duplicated the background and applied a gaussian blur set to 12.0 with another inverted mask. I turned the opacity down to 67% because the effect was too strong at 100%.
I duplicated the background again to allow me to do some spot healing on stray hairs, blemishes and using the spot healing tool i removed some of the catch lights in the eyes so that there is only 1 in each eye. There was a little hot spot on the nose which i removed using the spot healing tool again.
using another curves adjustment i put in a bit of an ’s’ curve to give a bit of a boost to the hair and give it a bit more depth.
