These are nice. I think you did a good job with the lighting and the retouching looks pretty good. Some things that jump out at me:
- in the first image, her neck looks like it is holding a lot of tension. I'm sure this is just how her body naturally is, but it looks cranked pretty hard and uncomfortable. I'm not sure if there's anything to do about it other than use a different pose.
- The second image looks just a touch overexposed in the midtones for my taste, but that's open to interpretation. I would probably get rid of the flyaway hairs on the side of her face since there's no other visible hair to add context.
- I can't put my finger on it but there's something that could be improved with the composition of the third image. Or maybe just having her eyes visible would be good.
- In the fourth image I'd work on softening up her lips a little bit, they look slightly crunchy. Also there's something running down her cheek on the camera left side of her face, but it's not obvious enough to be an interesting element - instead it looks like something that wasn't wiped off her face.
- In the fifth image, I love the idea, but it looks like there are also tears running down her cheeks in addition to the beige goo - having two different dripping liquids looks just a little off and leaves one with the impression that the things on her face are irritating the model's eyes.

Overall these are nice shots and my suggestions are just that - suggestions. Hope this helps!

Thank you for input. for image five there was a liquid that helped the different shades of foundation to run down
