How we create the 12 seasonal palettes?
Your dominant season (Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter) and your secondary (one of the other three) creates your possible color palette.
So if somebody has light ash blonde hair and light green eyes, she could be either a Light Spring or a Light Summer but if she has rather warmer skin tone than rosy then she is probably a Light Spring. In this case, a light coral or a camel top flatters her overall look better than an icy pink or a medium grey one. This also means that she is a Spring woman who flows into Summer so her dominant season is Spring and her secondary is Summer.
Using the Spring example:
Spring + Summer = Light Spring
Spring + Autumn = Warm Spring
Spring + Winter = Clear Spring and so on.
Try the following additional colors against your face or use the shades in the second row as lipstick – you will be surprised. In the latter case, if you apply the right lipstick color your teeth will appear whiter 🙂
Next, take the list of the colors of your wardrobe and examine it – which are your favourite colors and those you like? Are they cool or warm, bright or muted possibly some combinations?
I am sure, most women sense their best colors. So find your colors’ characteristics in the following charts as well.
The Spring seasonal palettes
As I mentioned in the introduction the Spring color palettes are light, vivid and warm.
Light Spring: So you can be a Spring woman with warm colors who flows into Summer so your colors are light and soft.
Warm Spring: You can be a Spring woman who flows into Autumn so both your seasons are warm such as your colors.
Clear Spring: You are a Spring who has bright Winter traits so your colors are light, warm and vivid.
mint – medium turquoise – bright turquoise
peachy – coral – warm red
The Summer seasonal palettes
The other light season is the Summer however it’s cool and muted. The Summer color palettes are light, soft and cool.
Light Summer: So you can be a Summer woman with cool colors who flows into Spring so your colors are muted.
Soft Summer: You can be a Summer woman who flows into Autumn. This is an often misdiagnosed palette due to the medium or neutral overall look. Your colors are soft and cool.
Cool Summer: You are a Summer who has vivid Winter traits so your colors are soft and clear as well.
