You have medium contrast - there is usually a reasonable contrast between your eyebrows, skin and hair color.
is likely to be auburn through to a rich Warm Deep chestnut, sometimes even darker.
Your skin tone:
is WARM - ivory, golden beige through to a deep coppery tone - and always with a golden undertone. You may actually look quite fair against dark hair and have freckles.
AUTUMN colors balance with your natural coloring
The beautiful array of colors in your COLOR FAMILY will enhance and intensify the warm golden undertones and bring your coloring to life. Your skin and eyes will be clearer blemishes will be minimized. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.
The colors to flatter you are:
- Warm, Deep and Muted (soft)
- with a golden (yellow) undertone)
- Ivory and cream is always better than pure white which is too stark for your warm complexion
- every shade of nature from deep golds and oranges, rich reds and greens, heathery blue mountains and deep teal of the sea
Your most FLATTERING neutrals:
- camel and coffee brown through to the deepest chocolate
- ginger and terracotta through to the deepest rust
- Warm marine navy, warm grey or olive green
Colors to AVOID:
- Avoid colors with a blue undertone, too harsh for your complexion
- Avoid colors that are too pale - they do not match the depth of your coloring
- Avoid colors that are harsh and bright against your softnes
How to cope with hard-to-wear colors
Raspberry, royal blue, blue red - are not your best
shades. If you must wear them, team them with a warm soft shade close to your face to soften the effect.

Autumn colors? Nature at it's finest!
It's misleading to think that because Autumn colors are WARM, DEEP and MUTED that they can't be VIBRANT and yes almost BRIGHT! It is this rich blend of color that makes the Autumn palette so intense and almost dramatic but retains the softness.
You don't have to look like a pile of Autumn leaves!
I've compared forest color with a spectacular Florida sunset proving that the Autumn color palette isn't bound by climate or season of the year.
Do your colors change as you age?
No - your natural coloring is genetic so it never changes.
However, as your hair begins to transition into grey losing pigment, your skin can also lose color.
This is probably more obvious with a Warm skin tone and coloring your hair will allow the warmth to stay dominant otherwise the muted softness can take over.
Actress Fionnula Finnegan
But... that is by no means always the case and many women continue to enjoy their brightest shades. Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan above has transitioned from rich auburn to grey/white with no loss of enjoyment in her colors for clothes or makeup.
If you do choose to color your hair ensure that you add a subtle mix of tones to create a natural look rather than a solid color.

What do I do now? That's probably the first thing most of you say when you first hold a brand new color swatch in your hand!
All these ladies have had Online Color Analysis and are kind enough to share with us how they enjoy the Autumn colors.
If you're used to sinking into soft warm woollen fabrics, deep piles and rich coloring of the Autumn colors, it might initially be difficult to visualize the same shades in the sunshine.
But think Mediterranean vineyard or the dazzling spectacle of a Caribbean sunset - they're all AUTUMN colors!
It's often considered a no-no but Autumn colors are brilliant and, as long as it doesn't wash you out, black can actually good!
There are no 'wrongs' with color you should wear whatever makes you feel good.
The cold mornings creeping up on you?
You don't need to change your daily 'uniform' dramatically when the
season begins to change you just need a coverup with flexibility!
you've been analyzed as a Deep Autumn, Warm Autumn or Soft Autumn; then you may not be a true AUTUMN at all and your color palette is
likely to be diluted.
