Recent (close up) beauty shoot

Hello everyone,

I recently collaborated with two models and a muah artist to create these photos because I simply wanted to try these kinds of photos at least once and I'd love to know how I can improve on them :)

Please be as critical as you can possibly be, nitpick if you want. Whether it's the lighting, the composition or the...

What do you see, like, or dislike?

A very impromptu shot on the way out to dinner with the fiance'. One speedlight on the balcony to her left. I've edited this six ways from sunday, and think I finally found a look I like. What do y'all think? What would you do different, and what issues do you see?
