Using PSCS4
Translatable: Maybe. Uses Levels.

Take your base. I'll be using this one of Bill Kaulitz:

Time to desaturate. Hit Ctrl+Shift+U

Dupicate your base to Screen Opacity 80 (this may change depending on your image)

Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Levels:

Input: 119 1.00 230
(if final result is too dark, try 220)
Layer>New Fill Layer>Multiply Opacity 100

Pick any color you want, really. I picked #ff89bb

Ta-da! You're finished. I'd love to see your final results and comments please!
