Welcome to Retouch Pro !

Shadows are never easy. However, your image is very similar to another I remembered from here on RP. Here is the link to that thread. Take a look and see if there are ideas you can use there. Another shadow problem

Re: eliminating shadows around an image

You have a very good and even background, which you can clone over the shadow. There is not a lot of definition in the area around the mouth, but with a better quality original, you can probably overcome that.
