Default Favorite Copic color for skin

Just curious what your favorite deepest color for Caucasian skin is. I've seen E02, E11, E31 and E51. It seems like a lot people use E00 and E000 for the lighter tones, but I'm trying to decide on the deeper shading color.

Have you tried just going over your shaded areas with the same pen? By layering more of the same color in select spots you should see some darkening. Aside from that I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions, since I don't have that many colors to choose from myself... good luck!

E00 and E31 are the two I reach for most. But I do try others, and I have a couple of stamps with more than one person in them and I use different tones on each.

I always outline with E11 and then either color in with E00 or E51. E51 is more yellow.

If I color darker skin, I use E15, 13, and 11.

I always use R20 for blush.

I use E000, E00, E11 or E000, E01, E11. Somtimes I add in R20 for cheek color.
