Re: What do you think do I have any potential?

As the base image is already well lit, sharp and overally clean you need to pay strict attention to what you're doing.
The trick is to retain skin texture while making skin pores unified, minor blotches removed and shadows/highlights on the skin surface balanced. Instead of blurring the skin or applying a filter to do so you may remove the imperfections first and apply some D&B later in order to unify lights and darks.
Also, leaving some blemishes on a low opacity makes the photo look smoother for a viewer's eye.
As for applying an artifical makeup, you have to be very careful to achieve a look that plays well with the whole image.

Yes I'm aware of that. That doesn't change the fact there are things that can be done in order to accomplish a better look.
