the shortcut i use to brighten pictures of brown and black models without washing out their skintone and/or to reverse the whitewashing that most psds do (and a lot of magazines routinely do to people of color) is to:

and set it to soft light and change the opacity to the 50-75% range.
that’s the difference between (psd without method above)
and this (psd with method above)
i stg i will get to answering messages today/when i wake up later today after this all-nighter
you can insult me however you like but don’t you ever dare call me a gryffindor
