Re: Beauty retouching.Need advice.

I would like you and everyone is welcome to look at my progress. Critics are welcome. Thank you for your advice.
Have not done anything on the eyes yet. Most of the time were D&B. Tweaked skin tone a little bit. There is yellowish blemish on the forehead were the flash light stroke.What would be the best way to eliminate it? Also on that same place skin imperfection irritating me.
Latest photo is named D&B.Stage2.

The eyes could need more light (and the iris contrast).
The skintone:
You could use Hue/Saturation layer to make the more red tones more yellowish and the more yellowish tones more red - getting a more even tone.
Make shure you use the colourpicker to get the most reddish and the most yellowish skintone.
(You can have an eye to the info-palette, displaying HSB as second colour-Info to control the colour resulting).
But keep it believable.

The highlights, and this is a personal thing, but I would dodge the upper part of the chin, the top lip and maybe the cheekbones.

BTW, @ShadowLight, the sharpened version looks a lot better - was that smart sharpen, USM or a second HP layer?
