I never tried painting anything realism, today i thought i would give it a try. I know the drawing itself is not prefect and that i still need to practise a lot. Still would love to here some critiques and someone experient to point out mistakes so i wont do then again in the future.

Not bad for a first try. Do more.

I don't really like the colours, its too brassy, plastic. try using a hard brush perhaps? Also, use different colours in the skin, you'll find purples, blues, pinks and even greens in the skin colour try using a lighter base colour and then adding the darker colours to give it more depth.
Not much other than keep trying! Do quick 5 min sketches and maybe mix a pallet, choose 5 different colours each time and see how it works out. I could always choose pallets for you?
I had. Only for the face, it was an old magazine cover.
Thank you. I will do some experiences with the colors and if it isn't a bother i would like a color palette
I'll second hard brushes, as they're less forgiving and force you to paint structurally. You're not off to a bad start though. Start another and try building up structure over the entire image rather than section by section. Think of the head in terms of planes (front, top, side...). Establish a more definite light source, and consider working from black and white up to color.
greyscale. i can tell you dont understand the principles of form. so try and learn them in black and white. drawing peoples faces from observation and just drawing simple shapes will get your head around that. also doing a little reading cant help.
I should had mention i started painting this by greyscale then added the colors by mutiply

Yep, skin coloring is VERY complicated, anatomy, form, lighting is more than enough in the beginning (though, as Elwell already told you, it's not bad for a first try...).
Use colors only if you totally use motivation without them But I think grayscale is better, you can't focus on everything at once.
