Start with your base, sharpen once.

Duplicate the base and set this layer to 100% overlay, and desaturate it.

Time for a curves layer.
Point One
Input: 175
Output: 199
Point Two
Input: 87
Output: 70


Point One
Input: 205
Output: 194
Point Two
Input: 149
Output: 111 
Point Three
Input: 59
Output: 40

Point One
Input: 215
Output: 183
Point Two
Input: 75
Output: 79

Which gives you this:

Make a colored blob on a 200X200 or 100X100 black background, can be any color but I'm using #982B62.
Or you can just make a new layer, set to screen/lighten and put the colored blob on there without the black bg.
I used a 100X100 circle brush, comes default with Photoshop.

I've set mine to lighten, you can do lighten or screen.

And you are done!!

Wonderful tutorial!
The coloring is lovely, I'll definitely be trying this.

I have one question, though: How do you make points on curves? I know to move the line around and everything, but in this tut it says "First Point, Second Point, etc."

Thanks so much! :]
