I've never liked the tipical over-lighted pictures of faces, so....I did the opposite thing, i went darker

I like the soft, smooth light you used, and nice framing.

A lot depends on the look you are going for. For me, she looks rather cold. If you are going for the goth/death kind of look, then I would just boost the contrast a bit. For my own taste, I would use levels to move the white point from 255 to 225, which both brightens it a little and boosts the contrast. Then I would add +20 red and +10 using color balance. I'd probably have to come back and mess with the color balance again, since I don't usually get it right on the first time.
