Female Head Edgelooping study

This is my study in edgeloops of a female head. The idea is to detail it in Zbrush, but give give it a nice flow first. I didn't pay attention to anything outside the face, namely lips, nose and eyes. In the nose I tried to get the flow of greater alar cartilage, lateral nasal cartilage, and the groove between them. The lower eyelid folds underneath upper eyelid, and the same goes for the lips. I added a loop for upper eyelid fold and the one for goose feet. I tried my best to find the overall form, but I don't see the cheekbone shape clearly, so any direction with that (how to see it, and what are the mistakes in this model) are greatly appreciated.

as well as any and all critique, of course!

A variant to close upper lip loops

Upper lip in this model is higher resolution that lower lip (I want more detail there, and I kinda like it if I can keep it that way). Instead of closing the loops with ugly 3-stars under the chin, I could just close it right on the lip.

Is this ok? Should I always avoid something like that (see the selected 4 edges in the screenshot)

Thanks for your input!
I'm trying to come up with as low-poly topo as possible. I'd try to match the flow of orbicularis oris (it's thicker than your flow suggests), I think Zigomatic is a bit inferior and lateral to the 5-star in your flow. Quad.labii sup. also seems wider than the flow suggests. I'm a beginner and can be wrong on any and all accounts. Please feel free to correct

Here's a nice reference
