Any softbox, or umbrella as a key light in front of the model will create a catchlight in her pupil. Preferably at a 45 degree angle and from above.

just add a second light or a reflector below the model for bounce fill purposes. Heck you can have four catchlights if you use 4 lights in front. If you use a round flourescent bulb hotlight array you can create a star pattern in their eyes.

This is clamshell lighting, most likely a soft source on top and a reflector on the bottom.

This link might give you some ideas http://lightingmods.blogspot.com/200...ell-light.html.

Have to say that I am not a great fan of the double catchlights though
