Lyn,

I like this trick the best and it is non-destructive since it is on it's own layer. Go to the top menu bar for layer>add New Layer>Pull down menu>Mode: Soft Light>made sure to check box: Fill with Soft light neutral color (50% gray). Pick a soft brush and I usually go up to opacity and start low like 15% or lower. If you want to lighten, make sure your foreground is white, and if you want to darken, have your foreground black. Also, use the short cut key X to toggle back and forth between light and dark.

On the girl's face facing the sun's light will be lighter and the other half will be darker and basically half/half. This is my favorite technique for shading--it can be very subtle and you can keep building up.

This is a tough little photo. You might try the Shadow/Highlights adjustment to lighten the face...
