This appears to be lit on-axis with the camera with a harsh light source yet it doesn't have that look of on-camera flash. Perhaps the key light is on-camera flash and the fill is a softbox, also on-axis with the camera? Or was this done simply with a large ring flash?
The skin has a bit of that plasticky look to it from heavy post-processing, so perhaps that partially explains the lack of harshness to her skin?

Waddya think?

Zoom into the eyes to know the lights:

I see a medium softbox on one of the eyes. IT is obviously centered. Probably there are reflectors that we dont see, or lights that are not directed to the front.
