editing finished illustrations

I often stare at my works days after I decided that they are finished illustrations just to look at them with fresh eyes and almost always, I find things that do not look right. This is what happened with the illustration below. In the original, the girl didn’t have sunglasses on but after looking at it a second time, I notice that the nose looks weird so I tried to soften the weirdness by drawing the sunglasses. Also, her hair was too big and too red so I painted the hair black and edited the shape of her hair with photoshop.

I do this a lot and most of the time I improve my illustrations but there are also times when I wish I should have just let it be.
