Ideally, and especially if you're just starting out with achieving likeness, you should pick a person to model that you can find many references of, in various lighting conditions, so that you can get better idea of the form of the face and its features. I'm sure it will be very hard for you create model with likeness if you are using a single reference that is front view and has very flat lighting. Perhaps you could pick a famous Asian actress that you can find many images of, like Ziyi Zhang, Faye Wong, Maggie Cheung, Karen Mok etc... That way you can take snapshots from movies and get yourself some extra references.
