Comments & Additional info
The most important part of my pictures comes from the quality of the raw shot.  I always take my pics on ultra graphics and try to find the most suitable windlight preset for the skin, clothes and background I am shooting.  For up close face shots I usually use the midday with increased gamma and then play around with brightness and contrast in photoshop to get the best result.  I also usually reduce saturation often, although I did not do that here.  Liquify is also usually the first and most important thing I do.  Liquifying really makes a huge difference.  For a great liquify tutorial see this video:

The burn tool was used to create the shadows under the legs.
