The eyes are overdone. It looks fake. The one with her hand on her head is overexposed IMO. But they look nice and sharp.

I agree and that is my goal, all I did was brighten their eyes a little bit, and removed a couple pimples. No skin softening or other enhancements. They are not models they are my sisters. Maybe I should do absolutly no pp?

The last set seems to be taken with a point and shoot... for me personally not acceptable.
I only see 2 photos from the first set the others seem to be erased?

Can't really compare except the first one.

Even though there may be too much skin processing, the colors except the pinkiness and the exposure is way better and more pleasing to the eye.

You should try cropping to an 8x10 standard for that shot to ease out the composition, as by standing next to a wall in a vertical shot, the wall adds too much vertical accent I think.

The second set is getting much better although they are underexposed and the WB is off. Fix the exposure issue first and then work on WB.
