If you edit "C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Enigma\Resources\Variables\UserVariables.inc" You will see several color variables, including

Color1=255, 255, 255, 255
Color2=255, 255, 255, 160
Color3=255, 255, 255, 80

These can be changed to any RED, GREEN, BLUE, ALPHA setting to change the font colors.

Take a look at the top of this manual page to see how colors work in Rainmeter.
