The change of facial color and expression reflects our mental and physical condition. Therefore, facial color plays a role in the interpretation of an individual’s emotions. The previous study indicated the facial color effect on recognition of facial expression; for example, reddish-colored anger faces were perceived angrier than natural-colored anger faces. However, the previous study has only clarified the facial color effect on Japanese adult and requires further investigation. In this study, we conducted a 2AFC experiment on primary school children and adults in Japan and Malaysia to compare this effect between generations and cultures. For this experiment, anger and fear facial stimuli of Asian and Caucasian were taken from the database and then morphed in 5 levels. Participants were asked to identify the expression of the morphing face by 2AFC task. As a result, we found a significant interaction between participant groups and facial color condition. For only Japanese and Malaysian adults, the thresholds of anger in reddish-colored faces were significantly lower than those in natural-colored faces. Taken together, we suggested the facial color effect on expression is acquired after childhood and has no culture difference at least in Asia.
