C&C on these portraits please, lighting, composition, PP etc?

Second photo was done with two lights, 1/4 at 2.8, 48 mm, ISO 800.


First was done with two lights, and then I lowered the contrast and bumped exposure a little in PP because I was going for a very "clean" look but I am thinking now it might be a little flat. 50 mm, ISO 200. 1/100 at 2.8. Focus on (her) right eye.

Thoughts and critique are welcome, thank you!

I feel like they're slightly overexposed?

Hard to tell if they are over exposed from my phone, but I can give you some pointers on lighting.
First, short lighting compements women much better than broad lighting. So, make sure to have your ladies look towards the light instead of away from it. That will help quite a bit.

Next, try to get your main light at a 45 degree angle from the subject. I can see your main is a a good height, but doesn't look quite 45 degrees.

Anything below 3:1 lighting ratio will look flat...try for 3:1 and you should be good. You can search online for lighting patterns and ratios, and how to achieve a proper ratio. Doing so will improve your studio work tremendously.
