    Contrast, sharpening, DNB, good photography.

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

        the exif data showed the file was named freq sep:
        is frequency separation just a technique to retouch the skin? is it commonly used?

            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.

                The method I showed above works better for what the OP wants.

                  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.

                    what do you mean by luminosity blending layer?

                      As some has suggested some kind of adjustment in color and brightness can help you to achieve this BW effect in Photoshop. Here I have found a video where the BW effect has been achieved using a different method, you can have a look on it as well - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAJzgAH10bE
