To add to your comment, consider using a polarizing filter to kill those unflattering reflections of the key light onto the talent's facial features. You do need to make sure it is not only screwed on your lens but also spun in the position where it's most effective. You then have to compensate the exposure by adding about a stop and a half of light (either by increasing your key light or by bringing it closer, either by bumping up the ISO of the camera). This works like a charm especially if you do not have a make-up artist (although you can still use it in combination with make-up). You will be doing a big favor to your talent!
There is an interesting french film that was shot using real life events as a live set, a bit like here, but during the terrorist attacks in Paris for example, you can check it out on kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1335564388/paris-est-une-fete
