How does she do it?

I really admire her work - - while I don't want to copy her exact style, I would like to understand how she gets those muted colors. Is this a coloring process she goes through? A desaturated function? I just can't put my finger on it. Any ideas?

She uses many different techniques it seems to me

Some of them look cross processed

I've created muted colours like that by layering, desaturating or colorizing one layer (top) and then lowering the opacity. there's also a lot of dodging and burning in there too as noted above. . .
