I shot this on a cold winter day and she was very fair skinned. I tried to warm it more but it doesn't look very good the more i bump the slider up. I really like the eyes so i'm trying to save this image what do you think?

Looks ok to me. I played around with the image and you are correct - warming it up does not look good. lol Do you have a different crop of the image? Having the eyes centered is really messing with me. I feel like it is right in between not being tight enough for an artistic close-up and to close for a portrait.

Black and white doesn't look to bad on this image btw.

I think you could go a little warmer. When I played with it (using an #85 as an adjustment layer), I had to turn off "preserve luminosity". Then just a modest amount of opacity (~33%) and a slightly brighter orange was where I stopped. To be picky you should mask off the eyes.
