Re: Need help and critique
First off - lovely photo. Nice effect with your retouching.
I do agree with Ancientmovement, the lack of texture in the lips draws the eyes. I understand from the before you were trying to get rid of the chapped look.
In the attached, I added a layer and healed the lips (with the healing brush), then reduced the opacity of that layer. To correct the color, I sampled a good lip color and painted over the bottom lip with a soft opacity brush on another layer. I then added a dodge & burn layer to bring back some highlights. Just a quick couple of minutes, I'm sure a much better job can be done, but just one way.
I think the only other thing I would do is clean up the fine baby hairs.
