the woman in right click > alpha to selection and back in the glow layer, then just brush it so it will affect only to the woman’s skin. and you can change layer mode to overlay and deselect it in select and choose none
if it’s too much you can reduce the opacity around this and now the last thing we’re going to finalize the result right click on the top of layer choose new layer from visible and i usually make some high pass filter you can go to
filter > enhance >this high pass and change the mode to overlay. and just adjust it just a little click ok and you can try with these colors let’s try color temperature and just turn it down it’s make a big difference
