Saving money on Retouching Headshots... good idea?

To save money on my headshots, I had them taken by a freshman photography student and opted to retouch them myself. Eek! I tried my best, but I think you'll see that the edges alternate from being to crisp to too blurry.

I don't really know what to do, and I'd appreciate any help before I send them off to the printers. Also, if there seems to be anything else distracting about what I look like, I'd DEFINITELY like them to be toned down. I won't be upset if you say "Your cheeks are weird" or "Why are your eyes mishapen?" Haha. I'll take any kind of criticism.

Send me a highrez version of an unretouched shot and I'll put it up as a Retouching Challenge.

I agree that we really need the unretouched shot to see what you have to work with -- and that this would make a great Retouching Challenge.
