There are many ways depending on the overall image. One place to start might be a selective Hue / Saturation adjustment. I suggest that you post the image here if you would like specific recommendations.

warm skin
You can also try to add more red and yellow to the photo by using either Levels or Hue Saturation. Another way is to add a warm colored "filter" -- a red or orangish fill layer with a low opacity and blending mode of soft light. Also if she's very pale adjust the midtones of your levels to slightly darker. You can make a feathered selection around her face if you don't want to adjust the whole image -- just make sure it's a very large feather so it blends in well.

this won't really help you, lol but I have to say it is one of the best things about paint shop pro (the newest one, I used the trial version but stuck to PS). The 'suntan' tool was just bliss, so easy, and instant tan - I used it a lot to darken a friend of mine who is South American but whose colour was lost in make up and lighting - it sent her straight back to how she really is. I was tempted to buy it just for that tool, lol.

I would, much like C Hurd, advice you to use a suitable blending option and light airbrushing. Specifics are impossible to provide as you forgot to attach the photo.
