Warm Autumn Undertones
ERIKA ( left) is a Very-Warm Autumn with red hair and fair skin
Even though her eyes are steel blue, wearing most blues, pinks or lavender make her skin look pale and washed out. Turquoise, teal or aquamarine blues, salmon and coral are far better with her cameo complexion. Also being an Autumn, she can wear deeper colors right at her neckline like the pine green she is wearing here.
