What I dislike the most in this illustration and looks like what I get in many, many, of my shots is the color variations in the area around her mouth. Especially the small area below her inferior lips.

Now I see it. I agree that it looks greenish, not necessarily because it is; probably because it is surrounded by pink and red - but it does look unnatural.

Variation of makeup in different parts of the face ?

I don't find any colour photos of people to have convincing skin colours. For good skin colours, use oil or acrylic paint, built up in layers, with white and iron oxide pigments. See originals (not printed reproductions) by Rembrandt, Velasquez, Goya or many lesser artists of the same period.

Photographs of people are better in monochrome.

In the case of fashion shots, what is wanted is good makeup colours, rather than skin colours.
