Skin toning question

Hello everyone.

I'm looking forward to being active in this forum and am happy to make my first post.

Anyways, what is the best way to give skin either a bronze tone or a desaturated-chocolate bronze tone (if you know what I mean).

I'm not new to retouching, but I am new to implementing these skin toning effects well.

Here are examples from Amy Dresser:

the first image of her portfolio is what I refer to as "desaturated-chocolate bronze tone"

and the second image is the "brozen tone"

Thank you,

Re: Skin toning question

K, welcome to Retouch Pro. The color is usually adjusted before all of the retouching and often tweaked / fine tuned at the very end. Usually a Selective Color or Hue / Sat adjustment layer is all that is required. It is more an adjustment than an effect.
