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 soft warm creamy ivory, apricot, soft golden beige, warm olive (yellow-orange or yellow-green cast), bronze to deep golden browns. Freckles are not uncommon. The main undertone found in Autumn is a red-orange which gives the complexion a distinct apricot or peach tone. Apricot skin may appear ruddy or flush easily. In the medium to deeper skin tones it can appear as a soft yellow-gold or golden-bronze tone.  In general, Autumn skin tones are more muted than a Spring's. 

Sometimes it can be hard to tell a red-haired Autumn apart from a red-headed Spring however if you were to put them side-by-side you would see that Autumns coloring is much richer and softer overall than the lighter brighter Springs.
You can see it here when comparing Amy Adams (Autumn) to Jessica Chastain (Spring). Amy's skin has the classic soft apricot tone of Autumn's and Jessica's skin contains a lot of bright golden yellow which is typical of Spring. Both are warm seasons but Amy is soft and Jessica is clearer and brighter.

Hair Color

Autumn hair colors come in quite a variety of colors from light soft golden or reddish blonde, brassy blonde, soft strawberry blonde, orange-red, chestnut, auburn, copper red, rich golden browns from light to dark, warm black, and soft golden or pewter gray.

The warm tones are usually pretty obvious. The blondes have distinct deep gold or brass tones in their hair and the redheads and brunettes have fiery metallic coppery tones. 

Eye Color

The typical eye colors found in the color type are soft warm greens, warm gray-green, soft warm hazel, browns from amber to deep red-brown or black-brown, and soft warm blue-green, warm blue-gray, soft warm gray or blue eyes with a distinct turquoise tone. You rarely find truly blue or gray eyes in this season but it could happen.

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-

Rich warm tones are part of the Autumn color palette.

The golden god or goddess and warm peachy look are distinct Autumn traits as can be seen 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.
