Numerous curves adjustment layers applied via selectively the mask for detail, contrast; paint with facial colours in colour mode.

I wouldn't use softlight or multiply. I would rely on adjustment layers, not blending modes. They won't solve anything, but they will create new problems.

The problem with this one remains that the face doesn't have any detail. If you darken it, you'll just get a darker solid color in many of these areas. You would be drawing her face in as I mentioned. It wouldn't be that realistic, and you would certainly need other images of the same person for reference to even get close.
