My noob try on Headshot

Did this last month. Ligthing using 2 Yongnuo YN-560III flash in a 120cm Octobox and a reflector. Flash trigger by Yongnuo YN-560TX.
EXIF: 1/80s | f/8 | ISO 90 | FL 90
Post processing : LR minor adjustment, PS frequency separation for skin correction.

Appreciate your comments

Something funny happened in PS to the nose and upper lip??

The reflector bounce seems very strong. Because she has fairly shiny/oily skin, you can really see a lot of shin being created on the underside of her nose, and also really lighting her ear.

The composition also feels a bit off to me. I think I'd like it tighter, but she also feel like she's leaning out of the back of the shot.

Also work on getting your subject to loosen-up. She looks quite tense and not relaxed.

Good job on the over exposure and 'finish' on the shot.

Thanks for the advise.
