I don't tend to mind selective color but some skin tones are showing up on the eye lids. This case I'd probably went all b/w or kept color.

Without the selective colour, yes. I don't like selective colour at all, but if you really want to run with it then that's up to you. The whites of the eyes are blue, not sure how. The catch light isn't to nice, I would quickly photoshop it a little to make it more appealing. That might just be me.

If you do selective coloring of the eyes, only select the iris. There is no point in giving color to the white of the eye because in this case it turned it a little blue. Also, you went beyond the white in quite a few areas and I can see the tan skin color.

Also, your choice of using selective color wasn't the best for this image because the blue is very dark and it doesn't really pop off the black/white like a normal selective color image would.

Personally, I would stick to either complete b/w or full color and I think it would be a much better picture. If you go with the full b/w I would lighten up the iris a little so it separates from the pupil a little more because I think the pupil will get lost.
