This is a lovely pose with good light in the eyes. There could be more detail in the eyes, however. Be sure they are the point selected fro focusing. The post work you've done here really makes things look unnatural. Blemishes in the skin can often be eliminated with a spot removal/ healing tool whereas here it looks like some aggressive noise reduction has been applied. (There's certainly a place for that in smoothing skin.) Be sure you are editing things looking at the image as large as you will be presenting. The eyes and smoothed areas of skin really don't blend well making the retouching seem too obvious.

Thank you Stuart I appreciate and I agree. This was almost OK as it was from the camera. I dont know why I wanted to change it so much.
I kept the blemish in the neck and on the face there was no a lot.

I agree with Stuart. If you use Photoshop layers you can back off on the editing by sliding the transparency bar to get just the amount you want.
