Help drawing fine lines pastel portraits

Hi all! Just joined. I've just gotten into pastel portraits in the last few years (probably should have asked this question from the get go but...) i do around 11" x 14" portraits (mostly as gifts) and by the time I get to details on the teeny tiny eyes I'm never satisfied that I got fine eyelashes or hair. My paper is pretty textured (mi-teintes touch.) Is that the problem? Or do people switch to other mediums for the details? I have conte a Paris pencils and pastel chalk. Any suggestions appreciated - thanks!
