Yellow face opaline sky blue.

You can tell she is opaline by the thin barring on her head and neck and by the body colour showing between the black markings on her wings

At the moment the yellow face type looks like it could be type 1, but often a type 2 will look like a type 1 until it has completed it's 1st moult. So you will need to wait to be sure which type she is

Mated to a dominant pied greywing sky blue the chicks would be about 25% each of normal sky blue, yellow face sky blue, dominant pied sky blue & yellow face dominant pied sky blue. Provided neither bird is split for anything

If the the cock bird is split for opaline you would get 50% opaline. If the hen is split for greywing you'd get 50% greywing. These mutations would combine with the others. Other recessive or sex-linked mutations are possible because we can't see hidden genes
