Deep Autumn palette: Best colours

About their colours
What Deep Autumns' colours have in common is that they all have warm undertones and that they are not pale or muted, but strong and vivid. Deep Autumns, like Winters, can carry a significant amount of black near their faces with success. Deep Autumn's colours, in contrast with the rest of Autumn's palettes, are strong. They can mix them boldly, too, pairing green turquoise with coffee brown, for instance.

Best neutrals:
  • Coffee brown.
  • Black.
  • Navy.
  • Medium gray.
Other colours:
  • Tomato and true red.
  • Egg yolk.
  • Olive green.
Colour combinations:
  • Camel and aubergine.
  • Coffee brown and green turquoise or mustard.
  • Teal and terracotta.
