    It's a bit of both, you can only go so far with retouching and only so far with lighting... You need to have a good combination of both to have a good result. Looks to me like they are playing off the lighting set up...most likely Gels were used and then everything was brought up and out more in photoshop..

      Either gels or tungsten lighting with a daylight balanced camera, along with a saturation boost in Photoshop.

        Assuming one wanted to do this in PS it's not at all hard. All the usual suspects: Curves, Levels, Sel Color, Color Balance, Channel Mix, etc can all do it. Just add a ton of yellow and a pinch of red.

          Mostly lighting..multiple gelled lights. Not much photoshopping as far as the colours are concerned

            I found the image on left elsewhere. Could it be the same effect?

                  If you clearly examine the image, you will find out the answer yourself. Its quite easy to analyze because of the fact that the original image has some dark spots as well. In other words the lady has marks on her cheeks. Anyone having a little bit information about Photoshop should know that lightning although adds the same effect as represented but it cannot remove those marks. Therefore in my personal opinion, its retouching. Lightning in lay man's approach "Brightens" the image but cannot remove marks. Retouching it is

                    "pp crud". HA! I could not have said it better myself. Just because it's the "in-thing" (thanks instagram), does not mean it "should" be done.
