As is it is overdone. If you really want to smooth the skin, then at least add a layer mask and add some noise to the face where you smoothed to give it some texture. I would also brighten the iris / eyes.

One way to determine if it is overdone is to ask yourself "what do I notice first when looking at the picture?" Your picture I am immediately drawn to the skin which should never be the focal point in a pic - either because it is bad skin or because it is processed and smoothed so much.

The lens distortion bothers me more.

It's a bit much, i think you lose the realness around her eyes and mouth. That's what I feel people will drawn to first.

theirs nothing wrong with giving her better skin but even if i didn't see the first i could easily tell it was edited in spots, looks good but it doesn't look like the same girl

Why did you change her lower lip?

Decrease the opacity of the retouch on her skin.

Overdone a bit. I agree with Sam above, leave her lower lip alone, and add a bit of her skin texture back in.

I think that you did a great job! I think with you doing the blur to the face then trying to sharpen up the eyes again could of been done better but all in all you did great.

I don't mind heavy editing, especially when working with someone whose complexion is a little "rough", but I do think this is a little too much. Dial it back about 25% and definitely undo the change to her lips/mouth and you have a keeper, imho.

It's not just the skin but her lips and teeth too have been altered to not show an gaps between lips and teeth - not necessary.
