Thought I'd take a stab at this too as I needed a break from a photo I'm working on.

Shucks, many thanks Lorelei

irshgrlk: Can you post the steps that you did to achieve your "try".
I had problems with dodging the eyes to get a lighter eye so I painted
in some yellow and did a smudge. You got the effect that I was trying to
do.

Unfortunately I've already tossed the file but here is what I remember...

1. Levels adjustment to correct overall tone.
2. Healing brush to remove obvious blemishes and discoloration.
3. Byro's degrunge technique found here.
4. Used Photoshop CS2's Liquify Filter to slightly adjust features.
5. Selected a pink color from the lipstick and used a soft brush at low opacity to add blush to cheeks, forehead, chin.
6. Made a quick selection of the iris and pupil of each eye then took the dodge tool (small soft brush) set to midtones and 20% exposure and drew a circle around each eye.
7. Added fake eyelashes to the tops of the eyes using a brush I found on Deviant Art. (Eyelashes by Trisste) I slightly blurred and decreased the opacity of the eyelashes.
8. Added a hue/saturation layer with very light opacity to brighten the image and to make it look more contrasty in my opinion.

Somewhere in there I also painted the blond highlights with a color I sampled from her hair (brush set to color) because I think darker hair helps the eyes to pop out more.

Hope this helps.
