Hmmm, well, looking at the shading on the face I'd say that the shadows aren't dark enough. Some of the shadows on the skin in the photo are as black as her hair, but in the drawing, they're much paler. I'd try and deepen those shadows if you want that real contrast going on.
Also, it's not so much about contrast, but her eyebrow isn't as dark as you've drawn it. But it doesn't look bad.

It's tricky, because there isn't a lot of information in that shot. But your main problem is that you're drawing the features as if they are head-on, but in your reference the face is actually at slight angle.

You've drawn an outline on the top lip while there is none in the ref and the shading in the centre of the bottom lip is too dark. The nostril on the left is a bit low and needs that shadow. Tough picture to do.

Its about contrast. Her hair is the darkest area, except where the light hits it.
Mediums tones for her neck would also help. Once you get the darks down that should help you see thr value range in her skin. Do you have a Deviant Art account that pic looks familiar?

alright here is an update, i tried to correct most of the things but the paper was too weak and i did holes on it, i picked up the wrong one i guess
the upperlip has a strong black line because the paper broke in that part
