Another backstage model

Critiques please!
Second full D&B retouch, went for the look you find in hair saloons, clean photo with crazy hair colours.

Re: Another backstage model

Wow, very nice work. I'm just a beginner myself, so I'm afraid I was unable to find faults. Sorry! On the other had, I was really impressed with your correction. Great D&B contouring, top notch. Great background color to compliment her hair and makeup. Professional grade from what I can tell with the moderately small image. *thumbs up*

Re: Another backstage model

Thanks for the reply.
As no one else seems to want to comment the previous retouch, I'll try with this one.
Did some color correction, reshaping of chin and nose and loooooots of D&B.

What should/could I do better/differently?

Re: Another backstage model

I 'm not the type to critique and I think you are going in the right direction cleaning up the picture and all. The last picture has few white spots on the chest. The face color I don't think is matching the neck and chest The red in the cheeks is in the wrong place and the catch light is stronger in her right eye then the left eye.

Re: Another backstage model

Beautiful work once again with the retouch, but I wouldn't change the shirt and the eye-shadow to the same color, unless that's part of the ad campaign or something. Generally, people who don't have makeup experience make clothes and eyeshadow the same color, especially girls on prom night.

Re: Another backstage model

I just want to clarify. The red was pretty terrible looking with green being a clear improvement. I think a smokey-grey purple would bring out the makeup a little more, without competing for attention.

Anneke, I have seen this pic before and am not sure if this may be used without permission:

Re: Another backstage model

Thought everyone would know by now, but it's dean@enigma-photos.com's photo.
Says himself to "Please feel free to download and practice on this image". As I'd like some feedback, I show it here, I do not intend to use it anywhere else.

(And I read somewhere on this forum there's a virus on that web page, so if you could remove the link?)
