    Great lighting.

    I can't really tell from such a small image, but the skin is looking overly smooth from my perspective. What technique did you use for retouching her?

    she was completely in a shade, under the sunny sky... the rest is pp work

    I did frequency separation and then highlight and contour but that in a really low opacity. She's a teen and has a problematic skin, lots of zits and I actually left some of her real skin texture, so in the bigger file when I zoom in, I can see that her skin is still not perfect

    Shade is often where you get the best lighting, in my opinion, even on a sunny day.

    I've used frequency separation a couple of times, but prefer to use dodge/burn instead for skin work. What I've found with either technique is that it can very easily be overdone. Perhaps consider reducing the opacity on your layers where you did skinwork and contouring/highlighting, because there is just something about the skin on her face that makes it look very artificial looking, like it's been taken just a little bit too far. As artists it can be very easy for us to get obsessed over perfection and take things just a bit too far, especially us photographers when we are retouching someone's skin.
