Red face Do you have a set order when you retouch?

I do glamour-style retouching, for pageants, actors, and Miss America style photos. I just realized that I am really disorganized when doing my work, as I jump around alot, go back and forth on certain areas, etc. Do any of you have a set order in which you do your retouching? For instance, 1) cropping, 2) color correction, 3) hair, 4) skin, 5) eyes, 6) lips, and so on.

I think my work would be alot better, and I would work much more quickly if I had a set way of organizing each photo. I work from home as well, and my three kids are home on winter vacation, so I am really disorganized!

Thanks for any help you can provide!!

I'm not strict about it but I usually get the exposure and color right first, then I work on anything else that needs changing. When I know what I'm doing with it (web, offset print, inkjet, etc.), I adjust the image size and resolution and then sharpen last.
