Step 1
Get started.
step 2
I mixed flesh tint+yellow ochre and white acrylics for base. 
step 3
Paint over base colours with titanium white and a bit of flesh tint.
step 4
For nose and lips I painted with a tiny bit of Naphthol crimson+Titanium white+flesh tint..then waiting for the paints to dry. 
step 5
I mixed pink and red pastels to brush on her cheek and a little bit on her lips too
When the color is completely dry. I will coat surface with Gloss vanish.
Now, Its late afternoon here in Thailand-- So... I think I will take a nap :> and come back to finish her outfit later tonight.
Have a great weekend!
