waxwaine Thanks ! Yeah I enhanced sometimes the eyes in PP. The flatness also comes from my skin-washing hehe, I wanted a "beauty"-look, so very clean. Maybe too much.

MightyMike I wanted to keep a "soft" contrast, to stick with my feelings about the model. She was very soft so. 
And I  think I like that morbid contrast, like beauty/death. Like in #5. But thanks for the technical advices.

Ed Jay Yeah the skin is very clean in these shots, I agree. I used a beauty-dish and a light for the background, so nothing very directional yes ! But yeah rules are made to be broken hehe. 
Thanks to all of you for commenting !

Hi and well done!

My only criticism would be the eye-bags-shadows in the B&W photos; it looks aesthetically quite damaging.

Best,

Hi ! 
You're right, the make-up was a bit too strong, and my PP didn't help at all. I maybe did seek for that vampire look hehe.
