A lot of what you do is going to depend on the original image.

Taking this image http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Michelle-Borromeo-Actor-Headshots-Vancouver-BC20110408_0030.jpg
origAnd quickly adding contrast to the background and foreground separately you can see the effect starts to get there.  Doing this correctly would take much longer then the 30 seconds I spent here.  
hi contrastYou will just need to play with contrast, brightness, saturation etc.  And the better the image starts out with, the better the outcome. There is no magic button.

The sample image you have supplied is pretty complex and as Padas has said "There is no magic button".

This image is possibly more than ten initial images that have been taken to a planned photo shoot. There make-up, costume, set dressing, hairdressing etc, etc behind the scenes.

There is the photography and then there is the compositing and image maniputlation of all the images together.

Heres a little primer

Check out the sample images in this commercial digital imaging companies website, it is pretty eye opening.
