before/after need help with retouching!

hi, I'm a new member here. I have just retouched the attached photo but I need some help with her nose and her chin area where the shadows start. I want to smooth out the skin.

For the chin part, since it is darker than the rest of her face, should I create a new curve layer and mask from there?

Something is missing on her nose. I can't pinpoint it. any help is much appreciated.

Files can also be viewed here:

It is taking me forever. Perhaps I am just impatient.

CC is very welcome.

Hello diddlez,

To enhance your image you should dodge and burn the skin in order to reveal the details while keeping the texture.
