Just out of curiosity, have you been doing your color and contrast work on a properly calibrated monitor?

MrPIXEL: I don't own any calibration hardware and my monitor is my laptop, so therefor it's a bit weird maybe? Is there any calibration things I can do to get better results?

I did struggel with the color managment and the skin, tried like 60 times to get good skin colour...it was either to red or too yellow...color is difficult

Here is another that I did ... I am really happy with how this came out. I was surprised that there was that much hidden information in the photo.

It can be really frustrating to do color work on an uncalibrated monitor, especially dealing with skin. You should at least use Adobe Gamma that comes with Photoshop to calibrate your monitor. Here's a way that you can try, send a digital file to a pro printing lab and have them print a copy for you. When you get the print back, try to adjust your digital file with your monitor controls to match the print as close as possible.
You know, getting better with color doesn't limit just by doing it over and over again, the observing part is also very important. Aside from looking at high end ads in magazines, studying the paintings by the old masters is also very important even most or all of what we do are in a computer. Look at their works, not on a monitor, but from books and prints under natural lights. If possible, look at the real things in museums. Check them out, especially the paintings by Caravaggio. People regard them as masters for a reason. It's even better if you're willing to get your hands dirty, literally dirty by painting just simple still life on canvas. It'll help not only to improve your sense of distinguishing what's good and what's bad in coloring, but it'll also improve your sense of lighting and composition.
