Re: twilight.

Looks like a lot of 'Draganizing' is involved. That's a plugin that emulates the style of a photographer named Dragan.

Download the plugin from here.

Draganizing tutorial here.

Have fun!

That's one of Joey Lawrence's promo pics from the film I'm sure he would give you some help as he has a dvd on his retouching and lighting setups drop into his blog http://www.joeyl.com or http://joeyl.com/blog2/index.php?month=10&year=2008

Re: twilight.

You can start out with light dirrection and creating the harsh shadow. On the right side of her face. Harsh under eye darkeness. And all the lips seem to be the same color.

Desaturate the face.

D&B

Faces look to have a bit of purple, so maybe some color overlays.

Re: twilight.

PWL, burned lips, selective desaturation blends, colored her coat with a blend of black. Few other things (nuances that are always required for retouching). Was going to do some cleanup, but the image was so small that I didn't want to loose any details (and my lazy self took over; lol).
