The skin is so messed up now. It has no detail in parts of it, whilst retaining full sharpness in her moustache.

Color looks nice. But the transitions in color aren't smooth. And there's patches of color that are still off. Desaturate your image, make it darker and have a look for bad transitions.

Not bad though!

Simply too much sharpening.
Skin pores are too sharp especially forehead and above the lips. There are certain parts of the skin that does not have that much texture as DJSoulgo indicated.

Also the skin texture under her right eye is not flattering. I know it is the original texture but you should replace it with the texture from the left. And the eyelashes still need work.

As DJSoulgo indicated you still have transition issues on both color and luminosity. The light to dark transition is not smooth. You can use multiple helper layers to see it. One method is to add a Channel Mixer, click on Monochrome and decrease the constant. Or simply add a curves and pull the middle point.

Love the skin color though, and nice work with mouth/lips.

Skin is a little patchy, even after d&b.
