What skin color are you looking for? There are so many - dark and reddish and light browns, rosy beiges, ivories, etc. This youtube video tutorial may help since she demos four colors and lists the pencils under the video. She’s an artist and does realistic work, but you could use the lists as a starting point and simplify.

Thanks so much. Actually, you hit the nail on the head... I was looking for varied skin tones and it looks like this video will help greatly.

For Caucasian skin color, I use Copic Marker E00. Works beautifully.

Yay! Thank you for that. I've been leaving faces white for years because I didn't know what color Copic to use. I'll be heading to Hobby Lobby shortly to pick up an E00.

A youtube video brought this thread to mind. The card and use of different colors on the little faces is stinkin’ cute. Here is the circle “grid of friends” using a stencil and different inks. What she does can be used for any skin tones though. (BTW, there are quite a few youtube demos about skin color. One just popped into my feed a couple days ago.
