That's a popular filter on IG. I have a preset in C1 that does a similar effect. Basically it pushed the RGB curve up steeply in the shadows then falls off into the highlights.

But that'll really blow out highlights so you need to do more.

Adjust exposure down 1-2 stops, boost contrast a bit and desaturate a bit.

In HDR, highlights is reduced almost fully, the shadows lifted more. Clarity reduced quite a bit but structure increased. I add some dehaze to get a bit more contrast.
