The hair tutorial is great but the birthmark is on the wrong side of the face :/

The birth mark is so wrong! First is on the wrong side of the face and second the shape is horrible. Her birth mark is the shape of Mexico, it's even stated in the film. You could have printed a map of Mexico and used it as a guide.
