It is hard to know what direction you are looking for this photo to take. It would be substantially easier if it was of higher quality. In the first instance I was not sure if the blue cast was intended by design or not, so have provided two versions.

a) to reduce the pixelation I copied the base layer and gaussian blurred it followed by erasure of the main details from the blur layer
b) I adjusted the levels and brightness and contrast
c) Hue and Saturation (colourize)
d) Overlaid a very low opacity orange layer for better tonal range
e) Desaturated background and top and edges of hair, eyes and teeth
f) Dodge & Burn layer to bring out eyes more and even hair
g) Recolour of entire photo to blue tones (if blue was the preference)
