๐Ÿป Light Skin Tone

A pale skin tone modifier, which can be applied to a range of human emoji characters.

  • Type 1 on the Fitzpatrick Scale of skin tones is described as: Pale white; blond or red hair; blue eyes; freckles
  • Type 2 on the Fitzpatrick Scale of skin tones is described as: White; fair; blond or red hair; blue, green, or hazel eyes

This is a combination of type 1 (pale white) and type 2 (white). Despite the descriptions, Apple’s artwork tends to display this type-1-2 skin tone modifier with dark hair.

Light Skin Tone was approved as part of Unicode 8.0 in 2015 under the name โ€œEmoji Modifier Fitzpatrick Type-1-2โ€ and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

Modifiers

The Light Skin Tone is supported with the following emojis.

Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
