You need to make sure you're working in the same Colour Space in both products.

Colour Space in Illustrator: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/color.html

Colour Space in After Effects: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/color-management.html

sRGB is likely to work well in both, but if you're making animation for television, you'll probably need Rec709 colour space in After Effects. This means you may need to convert your profile.
