Newbie Natural looking or not?

I took this photo of me and I wanted to retouch it to look better. I just did some simple cloning in most spots. Took out some shiny spots. The double chin was a little tricky lol. I added a layer and used liquify and clone, then erased with 30% opacity. I think it looks good but I want other people's opinions. Thank you! This is my first post.

Oh, I use PSE4 to work with my pictures. I am a newbie at retouching photos but I have done a few for others such as removing people and removing damaged from photos such as spots.

Re: Natural looking or not?

Yeah, you did a pretty good job. You perhaps took out just a tad bit too much of the highlights off of the cheeks. It turned out a bit blotchy.

My biggest suggestion would be to narrow the face a little. You'd be amazed at what a vast improvement a little face narrowing would do for just about anyone.
