I am assuming that you are talking to me.

First this is a great image to work with. Nice photo!

The way that I dodge and burn is to create a new layer and fill it with 50% gray. Then change the blend mode of the layer to overlay. Then with a soft brush paint with white and black to dodge and burn. The important thing is to set the flow of the brush down to around 3-12% (YMMV) and make very subtle changes. I used a small brush and painted around the iris then a larger brush and lightened the entire eye. I also lightened the hair to give it the texture that your edit had because I liked it. I burned in on her cheeks to give her a little color and high bone structure look. I also darkened the lips a little with a slight burn. Some slight patch work on a few places around her face. I would have smoothed the skin slightly if I thought you were going for a glamour look but I didn't. I hope this helps.

Take care,
Jim
