I D&Bed the face so intensely it looks fake. I am gonna put this one behind me lol. Thanks for all your comments guys.
You noticed one problem out of many. Picture her face in three dimensions and how the light would fall on it. Then tell me how you picture the shape along her cheek and jaw. To me it feels very convex where it was initially flat or concave, then there are a few flat spots. It also goes flat along the temple. The hair has a lot of smudging. It's just a matter of considering shapes.

Re: critique please

The skin is a little too ceramic like my friend. I do like the the overall color balancing and I agree with Mike that perhaps toning down the saturation of the purple eye shadow would be beneficial too.

Did you use portraiture?
