I agree with yuppiecide. The eyes are flat. The whites, maybe was a bit too white and there's no catchlight to the iris. I think you've already added red on the corners, it would be a good idea to make it redder and widen it since the lady was facing sideways.
As for the flat look eye, I think you can reconstruct her eye by the original(layer, blending mode, and etc.)
But she is still likely to look like having a black eye.(of course, it's from light circumstances when picture taking)
By the way, I had a go at it.(I'm not familiar with coloring old photo...and it took about 3 hours for me. Originally I took advantage of your retouched pic and the original)
I think you are doing a very nice and clean job with your colorizing!
In my opinion, the skin is a bit too 'one colour' and 'pink' ..... I wrote this in another Thread:
Correcting, applying or changing skin colour is the most delicate task in colour correction and, when nothing else works, here are Katrin Eismann guidelines:
* in light skinned babies, yellow and magenta are equal,
* In adults, yellow is up to 35% greater than magenta,
* Cyan makes people look tanner and darker,
* Only people with very dark skin should have noticeable amount of black ink in their skin tones.
As for the flatness of the eyes, I think the problem is the absolute lack of colour around the iris ... Here is what Vikki suggested in different occasions:
