Hi all !

I was wondering, what are the edits in order to obtain these colours in Lightroom?

I have tried playing around with the Color Mixer but am struggling to obtain those greens and those skin tones.

Thanks for any help :)

I have tried playing around with the Color Mixer but am struggling to obtain those greens and those skin tones.
1. First off, was the image def processed in Lightroom? It might all have been done via colour grading in Photoshop.
2. How an image turns out will depend, at least in part, on the original image. So are you starting with a similar image to the original you want to duplicate?
3. The skin is quite orange. This could be due to adding orange to the highlights using split toning or by altering the Luminance/Saturation of the skin.
4. Likewise the greens look like the Luminance has been reduced.
5. Also look like Blacks have been lifted using the tone curve.
