What is the difference between Erscheinungsbild und Auftreten

Both translate as appearance, there must be a subtle difference.

Erscheinungsbild = visual appearence (cloths, haircut etc)

Auftreten = social appearence (manners, politness, leadership, charisma)

Naturally there is some overlapping, things like body language, posture, or a conservative/alternative/progressive vibe can play into both categories.
