You cannot adjust the brightness of the headlights. If you have not had your bulbs changed recently then replace the bulbs. As the bulbs age they will loose brightness.

If you have any issues, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile experts can diagnose your lighting system firsthand and help you fix it accordingly.
