Here is the face base coated, it took approximately 7 or 8 layers to get a smooth surface. It is vital that the base coat covers everything and is solid and smooth or you will have problems later on. The first highlight is applied over a general area and covers all of the highlight areas. Second highlight is applied, covering less facial areas, and is getting more concentrated towards the light source. I forgot to take pictures of the third light but here are the highlights so far blended together. I try to blen periodically this saves a lot of work later on. Look at the Painting a Bust Part II thread for more info on the blending technique used.
