Continuing on from yesterday’s post on skin tones and how to choose colours to compliment you! Skin Tones are also categorised using the seasons. Spring, Autumn, Winter & Summer.

To sum it up quickly here is a quote from eHow.

“Winter”: complexions have blue or pink undertones. Skin can be pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Winter people are generally brunettes, with deeply colored eyes. Many Asians and African Americans fall into this category.

“Summer”: complexions, like winter complexions, have blue or pink undertones. Skin is pale and pink. Summers are often natural blondes or brunettes with pale eyes.

“Autumn”: Autumn complexions have golden undertones. Many redheads and brunettes with golden brown eyes fall into this category.

“Spring”: Spring complexions have golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach. Spring people generally have straw-colored or strawberry red hair, freckles, rosy cheeks, and blue or green eyes.

I’m going to be discussing medium skin tones which I’m going to take that on board as an Autumn classification.

Being an Autumn means you will have the warmer skin tones like gold, peach or golden beige.

I would like to think Jessica Alba & Leighton Meester are these Autumn beauties. They seem to always look radiant in rich, warm colours which have golden undertones.

These are some suggested colours to compliment the Autumn skin tone:

It is recommend to avoid colours which will make you look tired and faded, be sure to avoid bright colours, pure whites and black.

It’s also suggested to avoid colours like true pastels which can give you a sickly and pale appearance.

NO!

YES!


Some sets to give you ideas!

Purples/Mustards/Olives

Sorry for the amount of pictures but I wanted to cover a decent amount of the colours for the Autumn skin tone.

I hope this helps someone out there and gives you a better idea of how to compliment your AMAZING skin tone.

Warm, rich, Autumn colours are your best friend!
