critique please

I have been sitting the last couple of days and putting this together, so it would be nice with opinions from fresh eyes.

I'm planning a tighter crop from the backside of the head in both pictures. Its also important that it looks a bit natural.

I also know that I have to go a couple of more rounds with the strays

Re: critique please

I think the WIPs (Works-In-Progress) look great!

I would add some sparkle to the eyes and lips and maybe tone down the lips some (make them more subdued) on the first one

The second... my first thoughts were to make the lips the same color as the fingernails seeing as she already has a matching blue one... possibly, Smear all the colors the same way the eye is smeared (Lips, fingernails, maybe even the out of focus lights.... smeared like the eye)

Nice results thus far!!

Just my thoughts

IMHO these do look great already, although I'd agree with the above comments about toning down the lips in #1, adding a little contrast in the eyes and trying to match the color of the nails to the lips in #2.

Re: critique please

these are looking good! can we possibly see the befores for each? On the second photo, is the smeared blue eye makeup real or retouched? Either way it looks a little unnatural as it passes over her temple..perhaps add a small adjustment to give the impression it is forming a little more to her face.
