COMPARISON

Dark Autumn sits between True Autumn and Dark Winter on the seasonal flow chart. Dark Autumn colours are the darkest and brightest in the Autumn family. They are also rich, less warm and more saturated than other Autumn seasons.

Neighbouring the Dark Winter, according to flow theory, makes the Dark Autumn palette cooler and brighter than other Autumns.

Dark Autumn Comparison

Dark Winters and Dark Autumns have dark colouring and high contrast in their features, but Dark Autumns have muted appearance compared to Dark Winter's brilliance. 

Dark Winters have cool (blue, gray) undertones, whereas Dark Autumns have warm (golden, yellow) undertones. Also, Dark Winter's contrast level is higher than Dark Autumn’s.

CLOTHING COMBINATIONS

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.

Dark Autumn Colour Combination Examples

You have dark and warm undertones in your palette. They are also richer and more saturated compared to other Autumn palettes.

Since you have medium to the high contrast between your features, you can mirror that by combining opposite hues in your palette but avoid adding too many accent colours in your combinations. Complementary, analogous, or somewhat triadic combinations are good options for you. They provide high contrast but not an overwhelming look. Monochromatic combinations would make you look dull and faded. 

You can pair dark and light colours to create a high contrast level. You can also combine dark colours with bright accent colours in your palette. Black and white are not in your colour palette since they have cool undertones. You have different shades of brown, grey, beige and taupe instead.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Patters should contain only dark autumn colours and have medium to high contrast; they should not be too bright or light. The best options will be earthy colour patterns and figures, leaves, wood shapes, and natural elements. Medium to big scale loosely arranged elements would combine with your natural look. Avoid small floral patterns or patterns that contain big sharp geometric shapes. 

Similar pattern, different shade

Dark, Medium Contrast, Medium Scale, OK

Medium Contrast, too bright, NO

High Contrast, too Light and Dense, NO

JEWELRY

Since you have warmer features, yellow and rose gold, bronze, brass and copper look flattering on you. Prefer matte, antiqued, oxidized and hammered metals instead of shiny ones. 

Red and yellow tones such as Garnet, Red Jasper, Heliodor and Sphene are good stone alternatives for deep and rich colour combinations.

MAKE-UP COLOURS

Foundation&Concealer

You have warm skin colour with a beige and golden undertone. Therefore natural, matte and warmer foundations close to your natural skin tone would be your best match. Avoid shiny and pink-based foundations.

Dark Autumn Foundation Colours

Blush

You can choose dark or light blush colours according to your skin tone. Lighter skin complexions can use warm and light red tones while darker ones can use matte red and brown mixtures like blood red or barn red.

Dark Autumn Blush Colours

Lipstick

Dark Autumn Lipstick Colours

Dark red and brown mixtures and very dark and warm red tones are good options for dark Autumns if they are matte or slightly shiny.

Eye shadows

Dark Autumn Eye Shadow Colours

You need dark and intense earthy colours to comply with your natural look. You can combine your matte finish eye shadows with dark colour metallic ones. 

Eyeliner&Mascara

Dark Autumn Eyeliner Colours

We recommend darker tones except black for eyeliners. You have many options, such as browns, dark greens and blues. Dark brown and dark warm grey tones are also good options for mascara.

Nail Polish

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.
