    Can't comment about too much here since it is cropped just as a head shot. That being the case, it brings much more attention to the eyes in each of these. In each of these, I would critique the eye direction. I think in general, it's best to (1) have the eyes focusing in line with the nose and (2) you generally want to avoid having a space between the eyelid and the iris. You want the colored part of the eye touching the eyelid (generally). Also the lighting isn't very flattering IMO.

    In the first one, I'd like to see her rotate towards the camera a bit more...she is straining too much to look back and her other eyes is in a dark shadow. I like the second one but I agree that the direction of her gaze isn't helping. Same for the third one but again, I like the lighting.

    You may want to work some skin editing into your work flow. She has what looks like a blemish on her cheek and it draws the viewer's eyes. Deciding how much to edit the skin is a question of personal taste...I like to soften it a bit and get rid of spots etc. Maybe I'll have a try at it, to show you what I mean.
