Re: Need a help with features. Where to put shadow
Other than the basics, a lot of it becomes a subjective thing. I'm don't think that there is a 'standard routine' to get to the 'look'. For me, unless I have the freedom to do as I wish, it's all up to the subject.
With yours, it's her eyes that intrigue me so ....
- I did the 'usual' to clear up a few of the obvious blemishes using the clone tool, healing brush, etc as well as smoothed her skin a bit, just to a point where her skin texture is still visible
- saturated her eyes with the sponge tool then dodged to highlight
- selective color adjustment to remove some red from her skin color
- to further draw my attention to her eyes, I placed an empty layer over top, set the blend mode to lighten, with a soft brush set at a very low opacity sampled the lighter skin color and gradually painted where I wanted to lighten. To darken any areas, do the same with the blend mode changed to darken. This is the method that I used to decrease the skin glare.
In each instance, the adjustments were made to either a duplicate or separate layer so that any over-effect can be masked or a change in the blend mode does not effect the layer below.

is another method of D & B.
