Awesome Autumns

Leaves are changing color, people are adding blankets to their beds and women are rearranging their closets. Yes, it's Autumn. Time to break out the pants, cardigans and boots. And, of course, to highlight what it means to be an Autumn woman.

Hair color for Autumn ladies can range from bright copper red to deep chestnut brown. These tones include golden brown or dark warm brown, and rich golden red. Brunettes with a gold or metallic red cast have Autumn coloring.

Autumn's skin has golden undertones that appear more orange than blue. Skin tone can be ivory, peach, golden beige, coppery, bronze, caramel or golden brown. Many Native Americans, Latinas, Asians and women of African, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean descent are Autumns.

Eye colors for Autumns vary and include dark brown, golden brown, green, amber or a brownish greenish color. There will be a golden warmth in the iris. Most Autumns have a brown, warm hazel with golden brown or green gold.

If you are an Autumn, your coloring will resemble that of Julia Roberts, Queen Latifah, Teri Hatcher or Jennifer Lopez.
