The second is fantastic, so much expression and she is quite beautiful. What lighting setup were you using?

Hi thank you.
Its the generic lighting setup:

I had her in front of a white background, I lighted the background with 2 strobes on each side.
Then for the main light (her left side), i used a beauty dish - while for her right side, I used an umbrella.

If you see her left eye closely you will see the one white highlight where I had the beauty dish .
Now note, beauty dish does not give this soft lighting effect. Its achieved in post processing. On hindsight, if I were to do this shot again, I'd put a softbox instead
