A very expressive model...
I really wanted to comment on this, from a woman's perspective, so given that it was the fourth of what's obviously a series, I had to go and turn on the adult content thingy so I could see the others (I didn't want to make a comment out of context, so to speak).
So ... having seen the others now (where the lighting is much more subdued), I think that in this particular image the lighting doesn't do your model justice. The features are quite strong and bold, and I think that the makeup is too heavy in this bright light. The hair is very obviously a wig, which while not a bad thing in itself, becomes far more obvious with harsh lighting.
The background is also very obviously in a house/domestic setting (the skirting board) and to be honest, the pose itself doesn't look very relaxed. It's almost as though your model is trying too hard to be seductive, whereas in the other images in the series the facial expression is far more natural (and therefore more appealing).
I'll probably get shot down in flames for saying this, but it's more like a parody of a glamour shot, than an actual glamour shot. However, if that's the look you're actually trying to create, then discount everything I've said above because in that case you've nailed it (as they say on Britain's Got Talent).
But if you're trying to create a feel of soft seduction, glamour and sensuality, then I think different lighting, a different pose and a more considered background would go a long way to achieving that effect.
I really hope you're not offended or p'd off with my honest thoughts on this image.
Glam indeed Ty !!
