    I don't see any lightning in the photo.

    You got 2 sets of catchlights because both lights are close to the lens axis. Having both lights close to the lens axis also makes for flat looking lighting (no shadow modeling of the facial mask).

    You could clone out one set of catchlights.

    As far as C&C - the camera tilt, selective coloring .

    I would try switching to a single light 20-30 degrees camera right and a reflector 80-90 degrees image left.

    The catchlights are desirable in portrait photography, but the lights are too close to the model and the lighting looks flat.
