Asian skin tone

I am about to start my first Asian. I’m not real clear on the colors to use for skin tone. I’ve been researching and some say brown with red. If this is correct do I add red to the brown or do I use a brown wash then a red wash? I tried the spy glass but it’s not much help.

I realize there are many variations of Asian skin tone, I’m going for the every so slightly darker tone.

Look on shutterstock.com at pictures of Asian newborns if you want to get a better idea of the skin tone you want. They’re all kinds of colors. So cute.

For my Asian dolls, I do some flesh 02, 03, and 04 layers. That makes the skin tone a bit on the yellow side, so if I wanted it to be more chocolate, I would add a pink layer. If not, I leave it.

Thank you, that is helpful.
