You could work more on your form. At the moment the image feels very flat since the shadows are very light, and there are no cast shadows.
For the hair is better to not render every single strand. It makes it look flat and gives it a straw kind of look. Its better to think of the big masses of the hair and add detail where necessary.
Here is a better explanation about painting hair
Just my 2 cents .
Her mouth looks flat to me, as if it's a sticker pasted onto her face rather than part of a 3D form. This is especially true of the upper lip and teeth. It looks like the red part of her upper lip connects directly to her nose.
Thank you guys very much for these useful comments, I really appreciate your time
I'll try to fix the points you guys mentioned
