Color Interactions and Color Harmony: 

It is important to build up all areas in a work together, as opposed to completely defining one area before moving on to the next.  You need to continuously monitor the appearance of colors depending on what colors they are next to.

Experiment with placing a color next to colors from different color schemes to notice how it appears differently.

The fundamental proportions of facial features that are most commonly taught are based on caucasian facial structures.

This is when you will notice all of the specific information that makes you YOU!

And more importantly, you should develop your rendering skills in a range of ethnicities, genders, ages, etc.
