Even in open shade, light has direction.  If you know where its coming from, you can use it to model the face ( one side will be in shadow ) and get catch lights without a reflector or flash.

I do carry a flash in a softbox atop my tripod during outdoor portrait sessions. You can however use the big softbox overhead in the shade.   I shot this last 4th of July for a local online publication.   Hot day, under a big shade tree, no way to add light so I looked for the direction and watched for expression.  He was the winner, too.
