Julia Roberts, Mandy Moore, Julianne Moore. Not only are these ladies all beautiful and talented, they are all female celebrities who have an autumn colour palette. They also fall into the light skinned category. Can you see how their colouring is similar? You may be asking, “What are the characteristics that make them autumn women?” Here are some features of the light skinned autumn woman.
- Autumn women have hair that ranges from bright copper red to deep chestnut brown. Golden brown and dark warm brown, along with rich golden red are autumn hair colours. Autumns have a gold or metallic red cast to their hair.
- Light skinned autumns have golden undertones that appear more orange than blue. Skin tone can be ivory, peach or golden beige.
- Women who are autumns have eye colours that range from dark brown to golden brown, green, amber or greenish in colour. Many autumns have brown, warm hazel eyes with golden brown or green gold tones.

When it comes to makeup, the best colours for light skinned autumn women are warm, earthy tones; colours that are warm and deep and remind you of nature. More specifically, here is what to look for:
Autumns should wear eyeliner that is medium brown to brown black espresso. If you prefer thick, defined lines Lavera has a great liquid liner, or for those with a less steady hand GloMinerals has an easy glide micro eyeliner.
Medium to dark brown, medium olive green and medium shades of copper are best for light skinned autumn women. For that smoky eye try purchasing multi-tone palettes in these colours, brands such as NARS and Clinique are a good place to start.
Dust those autumn cheeks with warm, deep hues of salmon or terra cotta. For a natural look, your blush can be used as a subtle eyeshadow shade for those days when you want to keep your makeup simple.
The light skinned autumn woman should wear deep, warm shades of lipstick that include cinnamon, peach and terra cotta. If you choose to wear one that has a metallic tone, be sure it has a gold quality, not silver.
Black mascara will accent lines and wrinkles around your eyes, so the best colour for a light skinned autumn is black brown or brown.
You can wear any of these colours for daytime or evening, by applying them more subtly during the day and more dramatic at night. Double up on the mascara to add more depth to your eyes, or put on a bit more blush to add some colour to your face. As long as you stick to deep, warm, earthy tones that follow these guidelines, you can create any look you want and look your best!
