Quite good overall; in keeping with what you would have done in a retouch of your own as a photographer.

A few quick issues:
- The edge of the hair is a bit harsh. We would expect to see some strands remaining. The give-away will be the brighter reflections on the wavy hair; wavy hair is impossible to manage so cleanly when in a bun like that.
- Above the bridge of the nose is a small protuberance, that should be pulled back a bit.
- The inner edge of her left eye brow is bothersome, looks fake. Even though it was there before, you may wish to clean it up.
- The eye shadow color is bothering me. It just isn't black enough. Again, although there before, it could use some touch up.

good job on the skin.

i would make the skin tone of her neck and chest the same as the tone on the left side of her face. it looks like she is caked in make-up and matching these tones will help the color on her face look a bit more natural, rather than the color of the makeup.

the skin of her face has improve drastically, but the lighting seemed like it suffer from all the retouching. Play around with lighting and contrast to make the image move lively. Also, crisp up the edges of some of the lines around her face.
