Developing the skin tone with graphite

Hi Elizabeth!

I am an amateur artist. I like drawing portraits with graphite and charcoal. Though I am good at drawing the outlines I find it too much difficult to develop or to shade the skin tone. I simply don't know which grade pencil to use for it and how to shade the whole face while adding details and highlights. See my drawing, it looks somewhat flat..Kindly help me!
