SOFT AUTUMN COLOUR GUIDE
MUTED & WARM
SOFT AUTUMNs have warm undertones with yellow and beige. The overall appearance is soft and muted.
There is a LOW TO MEDIUM (if you have dark hair) CONTRAST between your skin, eyes, and hair. They blend rather than contrast each other.
Your skin is neutral or neutral-warm with beige and sand undertones. It has a muted appearance and ranges from fair to medium. It may have freckles. According to the metal test, Gold flatters you more than Silver.
Your eyes are warm and light with grayish tones. For detailed eye pattern analysis, click here.
Your hair has golden undertones ranging from golden blonde to medium brown; it is slightly ashier than other Autumn seasons.
Soft Autumn sits on the seasonal flow chart between True Autumn and Soft Summer. Soft Autumn colours are the softest and most gentle in the Autumn family. They are also lighter and less warm than other Autumn seasons.
Neighbouring the Soft Summer, according to flow theory, makes the Soft Autumn palette cooler and lighter than other Autumns and adds delicacy to the colours.
Soft Summers and Soft Autumns have muted appearances and low contrast in their features. Their palette has similar, gentle, soft and medium-value colours.
However, Soft Summers have cool (blue, gray) undertones, whereas Soft Autumns have warm (golden, honey) undertones.

Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or dark or light neutral colours.
You have muted and non-saturated colours in your palette; they are not too warm, cold, dark or light; they are soft and gentle.
Since you have low contrast in your features, we recommend you choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means combining the different shades of the same colour (such as light green and dark green) or combining neighbouring colours (such as blue and green)
Monochromatic combinations are your best option since this season does not tolerate any level of contrast. You can also pair neutral and accent colours in your palette if they have the same value (such as medium brown and medium pink).
Avoid high contrast combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic). Otherwise, you might disappear behind your outfit. Black and white are not in your palette since they have cool undertones and create high contrast. Also black is too dark for you. You have different shades of brown, cream and beige instead.
Since your natural look has low contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints. Small to medium scale and light colour patterns such as earthy elements, flowers, wood shapes and leaves would be excellent options for your natural look. Avoid too dense, big or sharp shapes and geometric patterns.

You have a natural warm skin complexion with a beige and light golden undertone. You should choose a similar foundation colour to your skin tone, preferably the ones with satin finishes.
Blush colours should reflect your natural soft looks, such as peachy tones and light dusty pinks. They should blend with your skin tone naturally.
There are various neutral colour lipsticks on the market; these would fit best with your natural softness. We recommend golden base colours with matte finishes.
Your soft and muted colour complexion must be repeated with your makeup colours. Therefore, matte eye shadows would be better for you. Avoid bright and too-dark colours as well as shimmery finishes.
Brown, warm grey and green tones are good options for eyeliners; they will look very harmonious with your light colour eyes. You have brown, grey and dark taupe options for mascara.
Your make-up colours are taken from your fashion colour palette. Cosmetic companies have their colour names for their products. You may not be able to find the exact names in the market when shopping for make-up products, but this colour palette will guide you to find the best colours that would match your complexion; you can search for similar colours as possible.
