made in photoshop cs
no selective color
involves curves 


1. Duplicate your base and go to filter - other - high pass and put the radius to 10.5. put it  layer to soft light
2. Layer - New Adjustment Layer - Curves
     first point;      input: 122; output: 111
     second point;      input: 147; output:148
     and put it to soft light
3. Make a new layer  fill it with #FFDDDD and put it to Colorburn 100%
4. Make a new layer fill it with #E6FEFF and put it to Colorburn 100 %
5. Make a new layer fill it with #A5A5A5 and put it to Soft light 50%

and you're done :) 
if your result is really dark, try use a lighter shade of grey in the last layer fill or change the opacity on the first two :)
