My first post here. Sorry in advance if I break any rules I am very new here and we are trying to accumulate 25 posts.
Firstly your light is very strong and straight. I would reduce the flash strength and bring the flash as close as you (the subject) as you can without the flash being in frame, or just crop it out. A light source that is a close to the subject will "wrap" around and appear softer than a distant light source. This should help soften the strong sharp shadow from your eye down the side of your face, created by the bridge of your nose. Also maybe move the flash more in front as opposed to by your side so the shadow of the tip of your nose does not go off your face. If you want classic lighting the shadow of the tip of your nose should point to the corner of your mouth.
If you have a reflector to bounce back a little of the flash light from the opposite side, it helps with the difference in color of the ambient light and the flash.
Also for post processing if you start with an image that is not overexposed it is easier to maintain natural skin tones, and you do not have to fight the color so much. Might I suggest a hand held light meter?
You have a nice face structure, with the proper light at a flattering angle you will be a stunner!
