Well, the model had blue lipstick.  Beauty dish close.

Macro lens with a soft box/ strobe up high.. maybe 1/60th of a second to capture motion?  Just a guess.

The strobe is going to (generally) stop motion and the shutter shouldn't do squat.  Maybe rear curtain but it would be easy enough with continuous lights.

The distinctive "teardrop" shape indicates a strobe, first curtain sync. Some studio strobes have relatively slow durations of around 1/250.

The original orientation is rotated 90 degrees to the left.

i.e., gravity is to the left side of the photo.
