Some redder faces can go plum-colored if you're not careful. I might pull it for the close-ups, especially if you will be able to tweak the footage in post digitally to match the wide-shots with the enhancer.

As a special order, you can get a half-strength enhancer from Tiffen, which would be good for shooting the closer shots of faces where you wanted a little of the effect -- trouble is, to make it half as strong, they have to make the filter half as thick, so it is somewhat fragile for such an expensive filter.

You may want to consider trying Tiffen Soft f/x warm filters.
