The Tamron 90mm also makes for a nice portrait lens.

Think twice about using macro lenses for portrait, especially for women. Waaay too sharp.

Will need a lot of work for smoothing out "the cruel reality". Just kidding but they are that sharp.

It's not too hard to soften them up, especially if you have layers or a selection brush to work with to do some selective skin softening.

It is a lot easier to soften an image in post processing and remove detail than it is to sharpen it and add detail back in.
