A Closer look at Rashida Jones

Rashida Jones plays “Anne” on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, my new favorite tv show. She’s also a Deep Autumn.

At first glance you might not think so because her hair is pretty flat and neutral, no reddish highlights common to Autumns. For awhile I thought she might be a Soft Summer, since she didn’t look too bad in those navy and grey suits she wore when she was on “The Office”. But it wasn’t her best. I knew she had a strong muted quality to her, but wasn’t sure if that was her dominant quality.

After studying her photos, I realized she has a coloring that is very rich and warm. I decided she was a Deep Autumn. When she wears dark, rich warm colors, the difference is dramatic.
See how deep and warm her eyes are? Lots of warm coppery brown on top of green.

I could see her as a Warm Autumn but her eyes and hair are so deep that it puts her into the Deep Autumn category.

See the difference when she goes in the opposite direction with her colors(below).

The pictures above show her with lighter hair and very toned down makeup. Almost as a Soft Summer or at best a Soft Autumn.

She how she looks with the rich lipstick and blush and golden brown eye shadow.

Compare Rashida Jones to a real Soft Summer, Angelina Jolie.

Disagree--Soft not deep autumn Not rated yet
I think her colouring is too "medium" for her to be a deep. I would peg her as a soft autumn--she's warm and quite muted IMO.

Deep Autumn, or Soft Autumn? Not rated yet
DEEP autumn, really? She definitely looks more "soft" than "deep" to me. In those lighter photos, even her eyes are very light. But then again, I'm …
