I've had most success with my Copics. Sandy Allnock has a great YouTube/web post from a few years back with all sorts of skin tone combinations. I can't link here, but I think she's easy to find.

ETA:. If you google 'Sandy Allnock skin tones' you will find a great resource ( from 2015, human rainbow I think is in the title)

I also use copic markers for the skin tones on people and since I like the textures that pencils add I tend to do the other parts with them, or with pale copic markers as a base and then pencils for the shading over the top.

The skin tones I use are Copic. I got them as a pack.  I tried to link to it on Amazon, but its not letting me.  If you type in Copic skin tones, you will find the pack.
