Hi there.
That's not a bad model at all. The bridge of the nose is pretty wide but it could be within normal parameters. The one thing that looks off mostly is the chin. It's a bit too sharp and wide. The bottom lip looks a bit too narrow and also has a very sharp edge to it.
Otherwise the proportions don't look too off at all.

Lighting models effectively is pretty tough but well worth reading up on. Most people use a simple solution with something like a skylight/lighttracer combo and get that same old "Outside on a cloudy day look". To get a decent result you need a combination of decent modelling, texturing and lighting. It's usually obvious if any one bit's lacking.

This is a simple tut but's helpful for explaining 3 point lighting.

I'm sure if you look around the lighting and rendering forum you'll pick up some useful tips.
