Hello and welcome to PSG.

There are several ways to do this. I tried two different ways.

First was by adding a Solid Color Fill adjustment layer set to black. I lowered it's opacity to 80%.

The second way, I added a Hue & Sat adjustment layer and set the lightness to 77%

I like the second one, looks more like your example.

Hi IamSam thanks a lot for your reply.

I tried to do as you advised but maybe I did not made the right process. When I created a new adjustment layer it asks to me color (with a preset n. of color, my Photoshop is CC) and method. Then there's an opacity value.

Should I make some other steps?

You have to create a new HUE & SATURATION adjustment layer.
Use the half moon icon located at the bottom of the layers panel.

Double click the thumbnail of the Hue & Sat layer.
Then lower the lightness in the Properties Panel..
