Her pupil is too wide open. Try placing a small spotlight behind you, far enough that it doesn't affect the exposure. The second, tiny catchlight can be then easily removed in post-processing.

pupil too wide? so I should shoot in a much more brighter room then?

Turn the modeling lights up.

A wider-than-normal pupil is actually a sign of attraction in females.

Meaning what exactly? Or more particularly: on which side of the photographic plane is the attraction lying?

From the point of view of a man contemplating beauty, I'd rather have the pupil contracted so as to revel in the beauty of the coloured portion of the eye -the iris. But I hadn't ever considered your point; which makes me now think more of what the subject is expressing and less of my intention. Is that the attraction you're talking about? As in, the subject is attracted by/towards the observer, instead of the other, more common, way around?

I like to have a sense of approachability as much as I can in my portraits. I feel that a slightly wide pupil helps in that sense. Pose, body language, and expression are more readily visible, but pupils help.

yes

that explains the barrel distortion you are getting shooting at 50mm.

If you shot her at 70mm and up, you wouldn't get that distortion.

is it worth it to pay 3x more for a Wescott umbrella over a Cowboy Studio one?

also, is a monopod the best way to make a hand-held flash on a stick?

I've used the flash-on-a-stick trick with my monopod, but it's quite awkward if you've not an assistant.
