YOU’RE DOING AMAZING SWEETIE
I think what you have done here is absolutely divine! The content and editing process has been well thought out and I do think its such a successful attempt and I hope you recognize this!
Now I have a few suggestions I would like to make here and that is in no way a negative critique on your process
I think considering you have done so much to accomplish your desired vision here, I would love to recommend just boosting the contrast in your images especially with the highlights.
I have chosen 2 images from your series as an example to highlight my intentions here.
For the close up image, I used the blue channel mask and set contrast (cmd + M) before applying it with my curves adjustments for the image. You realize that in this example the blue channel targets the highlights quite significantly and I used that to my advantage to boost your image, accentuating that shiny gloss.
For the wide shot image, considering the image is darker, I used the red channel here to elevate the general brightness, emphasizing the form of your subject while still maintaining the depths of the shadows.
For both images, I have used selective colour one more time considering you have done so at the beginning, to further tone the reds and yellows in the image to create more depth and vibrancy in the tonality of the images.
Finally, after boosting for high contrasts and depths, I used hue saturation, red channel only to desaturate the heat that was emitting from the skin tones.
I also would like to commend you on your layout here and I do think it is such a wonderful treat to see. As much as this is not a design module, I find it a must to inform you that your title font LAMEER should be fatter and the colour should be more prominent rather than the pink you have chosen. You want to make sure that your title here has that immediate impact, think VOGUE as an example here!
I want to also take this opportunity to thank you so much for having me and I do hope my insights and teachings have been useful for you.
I wish you the best in your future endeavours!
All my best
