What went wrong with the light metering?

Hi,

I thought I did either point or central metering on her face, but the pictures kept coming out like this.

The man's seems ok, but the girls face is too bright.

Any suggestions on what I did wrong and how to avoid this in in the future?

I only have a few seconds to get a shot like this, so not much time for preparation.

Thanks!
