First time D&B - critique please

As per D&B tutorial by Nienna1990 posted few weeks on this forum I retouched picture of my friend that I took few days ago.
Here is bofore and after:
I would appreciate critique and advices how to improve.
I would also love to find out more about adding shadows/burn technique to bring back some dimmensions to the picture.
Does anyone know where I can find tutorials about it?

Overall I think you have done a great job, one criticism from me..IMHO I think the eyebrows look a little wrong, like they dont belong on that face..a little to sharp, maybe they could benefit from a little blur?

Looks pretty good.
Only thing that I may have tried to balance the image is to shade under the left side of her chin.

Her before skin did seem to show many 'temporary blemishes' (zits) and those should be removed. But some of the smaller 'dots' are 'HER' and I think some of them should be retained. Unless of course you are going for the porcelain skin look.
Good job in the retouch.

Looking at the retouch, Eyebrows appear to be to be stuck on; To sharp under the chin; the lighting around the nose makes it appear to be slightly bent or disjointed, Looking at the before and after there was a scare on the nose that was removed and then a little too much burn added on the lower ridge. I would have left a little more texture in the lips and maybe added a little gloss, being that the eyes are made up nicely. Maybe a little too porcelian could have left a couple of moles in but lightened them.
Over all pretty darn good..!

Nice edits - I like how the skin looks natural, even after removing blemishes/spots etc. I would have to agree to a point about the eyebrows, but having said that I quite enjoy that style of sharp defined features in my photographs, so depending on your intended audience - it could work to your advantage...if you were going for a stronger, darker look with more contrast... more shadows. Really nice work!!
