    How should have I done to make this lady's face not too shinny?

    You can use an adjustment brush in LR and lower the highlights on parts of her face.

    Yep, tone down the highlight would do the trick on her face and bring out more detail in the clothing.

    Hi Mike and James, Thank you so much for your tips. I just got Lightroom 5 and will try it. I didn't have any software before. But otherwise there's not much that I can do when I'm taking the picture, right? I was trying to angle it but it's just so bright.

    On the camera you can under expose (exposure compensation) the shot a stop or two; also, you a try spot metering on her face.

    Thank you, Paulo. Those are great ideas. I'll try it next time. Never thought of it that way.
