I use the Wilton Copper color. Just use a little at a time to get the desired skin tone color.

I was taught to use Americolor ivory w/just a teeny-weenie-itty-bitty bit of Super Red. The amount of ivory set the depth of the skin tone and the red gives it warmth.

I agree (& not just because I'm the mommy of a Logan too) I've used the wilton copper for my skin tones too, I've also added just the tiniest touch of pink too.

Actually Wilton makes a color called "flesh" and it's good.

We have different brands here, but I've had success with one called 'paprika'. Also on someone elses suggestion I mixed a bit of pink with a bit of yellow, that looked good. Also just a little bit of brown was good too. All of them looked caucasian to me, just different.
