The Autumn Color Type
How lucky are the men and women that fall (no pun intended) into this stunning seasonal color type! Autumns embody all the glory of this vibrant season. Think clear skies, orange, gold, and red leaves, flaming sunsets, pumpkins, ripe grapes, golden grasses, bright moss, foggy mornings, and so much more!
Common skin tones found in this season are ivory, peach, golden beige, warm olive (yellow-orange or yellow-green cast), golden browns, and freckles of course. The main undertone found in Autumn is a red-orange which gives the complexion a distinct apricot or peach tone. In the medium to deeper skin tones it can appear golden-bronze.
The Autumn palette is full of vibrant warm hues and deep rich colors like -
- yellow gold
- bright yellow-green
- grape purple
- rust and orange reds
- gold and bronze
- deep periwinkle blues
- warm pinks and salmon shades
The lights and neutrals found in this palette include -
- pale peach and apricot
- pale golden yellows and greens
- light blues
- light warm grays
- chocolate browns
- mahogany, and many more.
The golden god or goddess and warm peachy look are distinct Autumn traits as can be seen below in various celebrities that are part of this seasonal type.
In this photo, actress Natalie Portman radiates in this red-plum dress and warm makeup. Notice how much her hair and eyes glow. She looks glamorous yet natural.
And in this photo, Natalie looks very pretty as always but these summery colors just aren't really doing anything for her. She just doesn't look as radiant. The lipstick she is wearing seems distracting on her, as is the rose on the front of her dress and her skin and hair look just a tad dull in these too light and cool shades.
This look would be fabulous on Jennifer Garner or Reese Witherspoon who are both Summers, but on an Autumn they just aren't that flattering. Not terrible but not great.
