It's been long since I had been here. Apparently, I had to reinstall ALL my apps. -_- Just great. I LOST EVERYTHING. I'm sooo sorry. So I thought I'd start over. AND finally upload here. :faceslap: I started making Nina, from the Vampire Diaries. All kinds of feedback will be accepted. :)
-edit- Please see the picture in full size. It kinda stretches the pic a bit.

It's almost perfect!
try reducing the eye distance a bit
and increase mouth width just a bit
and decrease a very very bit of her jaw width

Excellent start! Try making the chin more square/wider, bringing the cheekbones up a bit - if you can, turning the nose tip down a little and making the nostrils a bit wider. The nasal bridge and/or nose might need to move. A side/profile shot would help. Eyes just a tiny bit closer together. Eye and lip shape look spot on. Possibly, the jaw might need to move up.

I actually don't think that you should raise the cheekbones, but I second that you should increase the chin width - it's very close, but it needs to more squared/flatter. And I agree with the rest of the feedback. :) She looks lovely.

Unfortunately I didn't see your post before and I tried to tweak her on my own. Stupid net. >_> Anyways I hope I didn't do anything wrong. For the side profile, I haven't found any. I have a 3/4 shot though. If you don't like her, I have her previous versions and I would be glad to redo. Even though I did unauthorized changes, I still did what you said on your post. :)
- I changed the skin. Much better for her nose and eyes. I'm finding a nice long hair for her. Cazy has those, but she fluffing closed her blog. -_- I'm done with her styling. Not much CC. She pretty much wears plain dull clothes. Although she's still sexaaay. :D I fixed her nose... kinda... ARGH!!
Sorry about the sizes. >_>

This new skin DOES match her nostrils better, but in combination with the new lipgloss, her mouth looks off. In real life, her upper lip is qutie thin and not very pronounced. Her septum is also distinctively wide. I feel like her lips in the last post looked a lot more accurate, so you might want to at least switch back to that gloss?
- Decrease Upper Lip Shape
- Maybe Decrease Upper Lip Thickness
- Decrease Eye Stretch
- Maybe increase "Eye Width" (the slider that vertically adjusts the width) by a tad.
- Decrease Mouth Width
- Bring her "Lower Jaw Height" down. I know she has a small jaw, but while it's not as noticeable from the front and 3/4 views, it looks really oddly high from the profile view.

Here are a few more reference pictures I found. The frontal ones are more neutral and forward than the one you have now.
