When you shop...


Foundation matches overtones, as well as your (warm-neutral) undertone. The best match relates to more than just warmth. As an Autumn, your foundation may be sand, natural, or warm beige, sometimes more pink, red, or dark than your skin appears. If your skin is deeper in pigmentation, the colour may appear quite orange, brown, or red. Precise skin tone is variable in each Season. Try products from a variety of brands. Choose the colour that disappears into your skin and into your appearance when the entire face wears the product. Disregard the name of the colour, as makeup and hair colour have their own terminology.


Use your new insight into your best colours to choose the right metal for jewelry. Next to your skin and wardrobe, gold or silver both work. Look for rich golds and warm silver, like you’d find in a medieval castle, at night, near a glowing fireplace. You know to avoid gold that is both shiny and green or candy (think, rose gold) or silver that looks frozen, like platinum.

Who knows?...

You might be an individual who looks drop dead gorgeous (men, we’re talking to you too) in burnt orange or black orchid purple. All it takes is your 'wow' colour in an earring or a stripe in a navy blue tie, and your appearance moves one step higher.
