One. Open up your photo [CTRL+O]
I will be using the lovely P!NK

Two. Sharpen your photo, depending on how sharp you want it to.
I will be sharpening her ONCE.
Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen

Three. Duplicate your Layer [CTRL+J] & Set the blending option to 'Screen' with a 100% Opacity.

Four. Select the color #8560a8 as your Foreground Color & #f49ac1 as your Background Color.

Five. Make a new layer and fill it with #8560a8 [G] and set it to 'Lighten' with a 70% Opacity.

Six. Make another layer and fill it with #f49acl and set it to 'Soft Light' with a 50% Opacity.

Add this texture / Or any Grunge texture you like:

And set it to 'Screen' with a 70% Opacity

Final Product:

This may only turn out perfect with specific photos. If you do not like the opacity with the blending change, you can just change the opacity. Play around with it.

Easy, wasn't it?
