I used layer mask to reduce opacity at the bottom of this shadow:

I named this layer "shadow 1".

Step 31

I used a new layer with soft black brush and opacity about 30%-50% to create more shadow under the model:

Step 34

Don't overdo it as you can loose the details.

Step 35

Make a new layer with Clipping Mask, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill with 50% gray:

Take Dodge and Burn with Midtones Range, Exposure about 15-20% to enhance some details of model face and hair. You can see how I applied this tool with Normal mode and result with Overlay mode:

Step 36

The model looks too bright compared with background. To darken her I used a Curves layer:

On Curves layer mask I reduced the dark effect on the model legs:

Add a Levels layer to increase the light:
