I think that the eye makeup should be on it's own layer, and have the opacity moved down a little bit so that it doesn't look so painted on- this may help to give it the look of actual makeup if you can see a little of the underlying skin.
The purple hair seems odd to me, perhaps if you used a brush in "color" mode around %10 with that color selected and try to blend it in?
Her eyebrows seem over the top to me- but once again just my opinion, I would take back the opacity of these.
I think you have a good start!!

Hey mate,

I'm far from pro but would like to offer my opinion. I think the makeup around the eye looks way to painted on and I probably would have removed the blush from her forehead. She may benefit from a little more dimension on her face with some creative dodging and burning, also maybe on her neck and collar bone which looks particular flat.

I do really like the background colour change and the fact that you have created a purple colour cast on her hair.

Hope this helps.
