JennyLee, Welcome to RetouchPRO
First of all the model needs to eat right, get plenty of rest, and have a good make-up artist and good skin to start with. Then make sure the picture is taken with exceptional glass, good lighting and a quality CMOS sensor.
Cull all the bad shots and only show the best one! Retouch the minor imperfections like the red/blue veins in the eyes and any other small imperfections found by other peoples fresh eyes (like in your sample... I would have suggested the Iris be brightened and sharpened a bit so it is more prominent and stands out as the focal point)
