you have to be careful not to "block" the color
to light a face there are endless options depend what is the mood, what is the structure of the face.

And how do I know there is enough highlight or too much. How can I get the correct exposure?
What I mean by lighting face is about beauty. Sorry I did not describe it in detail. What if I would to light the model in beauty shot.
What is the filters or gels that you think I can use to get the nice soft lighting.

it should come with the reflection angel to the camera
you look with your eyes and see if you see details colors
you can check with the spot meter.
today most of beauty shoot done with big soft frontal light
or ring light or you can take 4 4bank kino and built box light and put the cam inside
you can use: soft fx, glimmer, promist white or black you can go with behind the lens net
i would overexposed the face like 1/2 stop over
and don't forget the post work you can do with color correct and after effect

A good post for you to look at is Adam Frisch's when he shot the Girls Aloud video.....I believe if you search it via "Girls Aloud" that you'll find it.
