Painting, Smudge or Glamour!

Hi Ya'll.

The pictures attached are of a wonderful lady of 86 years who describes herself as terribly vain and rarely lets anyone take her picture. She is also very ill. Somehow I convinced her to let me take a few photos. She only agreed when she learned that there are amazing retouch options available and said to me .... "ok, but only if you can make me beautiful". I think she is beautiful as is but wanted to honor her request. I have worked on one photo but it doesn't quite have the punch I think she would like .... Ohhhhh and one of her favorite statements is that a lady cannot start the day until she has her lipstick on. Boy have times changed. Anyway, thanks for any assist you may be able to give.

If you want to change the background, please have a go. She loves gardens and she is also a very regal lady.
