I thought that I was done with the sugar skull portraits of Rhowan but thought I'd try something slightly different with this one, i.e. combining two separate RAW conversions: one for most of the image, the other for her eyes. The first has a clarity setting of -48, which is why this one is a lot softer than the other two I posted, while the second had the clarity set to around +20.

Let me know if you think this approach works better.
