The Nexyad Teal & Orange Skin :

Teal & Orange color grading became popular among anglo-saxons colorists from the beginning of digital post-production some years ago. It is a matter of opposition between two complementary colors : teal and orange. It can be initiated during the shooting with the choice of sets, costumes and makeup, or postprocessed... 

 In general, skin, especialy character's face, is turned artificialy to warm or tanned tones, and backgrounds are cooled to give maximum color contrast to images. Painters, such as Kandinsky, already develop similar colors grammars, the best known being blue and yellow. Teal and orange may be seen as a rotation of it, adapted to film (indeed, yellow faces are generaly not interpreted as healthy). This color grading is widely used for Hollywood blockbusters. It is suitable for all kinds of modern movies or TV shows that want to show positive values (it is not revelant for vampires, horror, ... films) and can be translated into infinite number of shades.
