Subject in shade with bright background

I cant figure out what setting to use here, for when the subject is in the shade and there is a bright sunny background or a lake. The face comes out so dark- I have tried all the metering settings, including spot and i havent had much luck. Below are two samples, the first is a dark face, and the second is spot meter with a blown out background.
