    My cheat way: Paint over the top (on a different layer!) with very thin light or dark paint and very very lightly erase and blend it until it looks right.

    You can also change the layer opacity.

    Or, have a dark/bright background underneath and lightly erase some of the pcture so the darker shadow/bright light shows through.

    Or just add little bright or dark bits of paint, etc and blend it in.

    Shadows generally should be cool - blues, greys, purple
    highlights can be warmer - yellow, white

    Depends a LOT on your lighting/picture, so it is up to you.
    And of course, most importantly, know which direction the light comes from.
