Unless the model is really that tan, you'd probably need to "bronze" the skin while in color mode, then convert:

Frequency separation is the least used thing on these. Yes, blue channel, you can also do the sort of the same thing using the B&W adjustment layer, then slide left the reds and yellows.

It is used to clean up blemishes and even out blotchy skin tones. For what you're after, freq sep won't be of much help.
