Had a quick go at it...

Let me add a remark please: The images are very poor, almost no tonal range and underexposed. It's almost impossible to get the results you want to go for by retouching if the basic material is missing. Try to shoot with proper exposure next time. Darkening it is far more better than lightening up underexposed areas.

this was fun.

It was easier because the images where so low-res.

This is what I did:

1) remove blemishes, fixed hairline and worked a little her waist to make her a bit more curved.

2) balanced the exposure a little and boost a little the contrast

3) then remove some noise and sharpen a little.

4) painted over another layer some highlights to give the "oily" effect and flattened the image.

5) once flattened selected via selective color the skin and de-saturated it

6) the mess a little with the curves.

I saved some variations as i worked and came out with 4 options
a) regular b) sharper c) darker d) washed.
