I got another idea and I think it produces better results: trace the 
only the black outlines and add color manually (helped by a "break apart")

The process: http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/lady_face1.png
Black and white outline: http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/lady_face1_bw.svg
Final result: http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/lady_face1.svg

Not bad for a "less than 5 minutes" job I would say.
