Color Analysis BRIGHT ...

Is Color Analysis Bright your Color Family?

Looking your best starts with understanding your natural coloring and echoing it with the the colors you wear. Translate it further still into the colors you use for your hair and makeup.

If you are Color Analysis BRIGHT you will always look your best when you're wearing pure colors i.e. colors with complete clarity with little or no undertone.  

Your colors have elements of both Warm and Cool which balance each other out. Warm colors will look too 'yellow' and Cool colors will look too cold.  

Each of the colors in the BRIGHT color swatch has the same Primary Color Characteristic as your own and will complement your natural coloring - creating harmony!

Match your natural coloring...

You have brilliant natural color contrast between your eyes, skin and hair and a dramatic sparkle!

Your hair is always a much stronger color than your skin tone and this high contrast in your natural coloring demands a high contrast in the colors you wear. 

Although it's not always necessary to have dark hair and fair skin, this is the 'snow white' effect that's most often identified with Bright. 

Women of Color can fall into this category too if there is high contrast between bright eyes, hair and skin tones. 

Your Hair: will be from mid to the darkest of browns or black and will eventually turn to the richest of steel grey. But: it can be Red or even clear blonde - it's always intense! 

Your Skin tone: will be from the most delicate ivory through to olive or dark ash brown depending on your ethnicity.

In fact, this coloring is sometimes difficult to describe but it's often ... 

Your Eyes: which set you apart.  Jewel-like eyes, the brightest of twinkling blue, steel grey, green or even bright hazel. 

Seasonal Analysis wouldn't work - you would be wrongly determined SPRING or WINTER

and your Color Family has a whole spectrum of colors - from light and fresh through to bold and deep - all with complete clarity.   

So whether your natural coloring leads you to the lighter brighter shades or the bolder more dramatic colors, it is the clear BRIGHT characteristic which always dominates.

Your color palette has 45 fabulous BRIGHT shades encompassing the brightest and clearest tones. 

There is no need to ever feel limited with colors. Wear whatever color you like - red, blue, green, purple - they are all featured in your color palette. But... it will direct you to the very best shade of each to best flatter your natural high contrast. 

The clear BRIGHT shades create balance with your natural coloring

Together with a clear skin tone that needs little artificial help, your coloring creates an intensity that demands to be matched with PURE CLEAR tones to create contrast.

The glorious tones of your COLOR FAMILY will match and enhance your natural bright coloring. Your skin will look fresh and clear, your eyes brighter and the shade of your hair more intense. Follow your new COLOR DIRECTION to create balance and COLOR CONTRAST!

CHOOSE: From your color analysis Bright palette, use light and dark colors together or one bold color alone. Use basic colors of black, charcoal grey, royal blue and red to mix and match with the other shades to create a 'snappy' contrast. Black and white is fabulous and even better when one of your brights is introduced as well.

NEUTRALS: Being Bright doesn't mean you have to live in bright colors! Your neutrals - black, white, charcoal grey - are all Brights too and create clear contrast against themselves as well as the brighter colors.  

ADD CONTRAST: with bold jewelry, crisp makeup tones and nail polish. Alternatively add a bright accent tone near to the face - a scarf or blouse in gorgeous shades of mango, hot pink or fuchsia will add femininity.

Very nearly halfway between SPRING and WINTER - but not quite!

It would be easy to say that you are halfway between SPRING and WINTER but this is not strictly true. Although they both have Bright in their makeup it is only the Clearest shades of each that are included in the BRIGHT color swatch.

Other elements that appear in the Spring and Winter swatches are excluded because they do not relate to your overall BRIGHT clear coloring. 

Your primary consideration is that you aim for CLARITY with little to no undertone - all these colors echo and balance your high contrast - you can effectively wear and enjoy them all.

However, if your coloring is lighter it may lean towards Warm and you may look your best in some of the lighter warmer tones from the Spring palette. If your coloring is stronger and more dramatic then you may feel more at ease in the deeper shades to give you greater contrast - you'll find many of these colors in the WINTER palette.   

It can be difficult to visualize how the colors from your swatch come together in an outfit.

Colors to avoid and how to cope with them...

If you are Color Analysis Bright you should avoid all colors that are dull, dusky or pastel. They will not do you justice - they don't give a strong enough color contrast to offset your dramatic natural coloring.

Colors like beige, dusky pinks, soft greens and mustard are not complementary to your skin tone. If you already have these colors and want to wear them, team them with a brighter color next to your face.

All you need to enjoy your BRIGHT colors...
