She's very cute & looks pretty good to me. Personally, I'd rather see a vertical framing.

I agree, Vertical with a little more shoulder. She has a very endearing smile and makes a good subject. Very pretty.

I like the pose in the first one, & the softer lighting in the second. Even softer would look better to me. Try to play down the bags under her eyes.

Put into photoshop, create a duplicate layer, take the patch tool and completely circle the bags and then drag them to a perfect part of her face, right below the bags would work for me. Bags are gone. Now take the opacity tool and take it down to 0 percent, bags are back. Then slowly drag the tool increasing the percentage until the bags are adjusted as you see fit.

You can then flatten image if you wish and then do the same thing over with her laugh lines as well. the trick is to make it look like it was not adjusted at all but looks better then original.

You can use the brush tool as well to soften but I just find the patch tool faster and easier.

On the last edit, I am also seeing some hair above her upper lip. Not sure what the position is in your country for this, but might soften a little bit.

Your lighting looks much better than before. Incorporating the suggestions made above will do justice to a very pretty young lady.
