This sketch is drifting toward a cartoon rendition. Cartoonists exaggerate and minimize certain features to make the face more appealing. Manga makes huge eyes and emphasizes the color and reflections till they are like jewels. The nose becomes tiny, even nonexistent in front view.
I find that I like sketching with VERITHIN or COL-ERASE colored pencils when I'm working small. When sketching large, a simple brown Crayola cayon suits me well. Otherwise I use Nupastel.
