Seasonal color analysis AUTUMN!

Is this your Color Palette? Do these colors feel LIKE YOU?

A true Seasonal Color Analysis AUTUMN is the most elegant and sophisticated of all the color palettes.

As Summer fades into Autumn glory, the colors become soft and rich, warm and blended.

The Autumn shades can be dull on many people, but on you they look CLASSIC and ELEGANT, RICH and EXPENSIVE!

If your color characteristics are Warm, Deep and Muted then these are the colors for you.

The AUTUMN color palette allows you to re-create your natural coloring in the clothes and makeup that you wear.

This creates COLOR BALANCE and harmony!

Match your natural coloring...

Your eyes: will be warm green, golden/amber or hazel, turquoise/teal - often with yellow flecks.

You have medium contrast - there is usually a reasonable contrast between your eyebrows, skin and hair color. 

Your hair:

is likely to be auburn through to a rich Warm Deep chestnut, sometimes even deeper.

Your skin tone:

is WARM - ivory, golden beige through to a deep coppery tone - and always with a golden undertone.  You may have freckles.

Seasonal Color Analysis AUTUMN
- a glorious mix of DEEP, WARM and MUTED

If you fit comfortably in this category your natural coloring is glorious and you have a wonderful mix of these 3 color characteristics.

However, sadly, Seasonal Color Analysis Autumn is often not determined correctly.

If you've been analyzed as a Deep Autumn, Warm Autumn or Soft (Muted) Autumn then you may not be a true AUTUMN at all!

Most importantly, you may be missing out on a wider range of colors that you could be enjoying because your palette has been diluted. 

Check out the details of Flow Seasonal Color Analysis to see if you might be missing out.

AUTUMN colors create balance with your natural coloring

The beautiful array of colors in your COLOR FAMILY will enhance and intensify the warm golden undertones and bring your coloring to life.

Your skin and eyes are always clearer when you are wearing complementary tones and blemishes will be minimized. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.

Seasonal color analysis Autumn

Your most flattering colors are always:

  • Warm, Deep and Muted (soft)
  • with a golden (yellow) undertone)
  • Ivory and cream is always better than pure white which is too stark for your warm complexion
  • every shade of nature from deep golds and oranges, rich reds and greens, heathery blue mountains and deep teal of the sea

Your most flattering neutrals:

  • camel and coffee brown through to the deepest chocolate
  • ginger and terracotta through to the deepest rust
  • Warm marine navy, warm grey or olive green

Colors to AVOID:

  • Avoid colors with a blue undertone - too harsh for your complexion
  • Avoid colors that are too pale - they do not match the depth of your coloring
  • Avoid colors that are harsh and bright against your softness

How to cope with hard-to-wear colors

Cool Bright colors - raspberry, royal blue, blue red - are not your best shades. If you must wear them, team them with a cooler color near to your face which will soften the effect.

Update Nov 17 : You don't have to look like an Autumn leaf!

It's misleading to think that because Autumn colors are WARM, DEEP and MUTED that they can't be VIBRANT and yes almost BRIGHT! You don't have to look like a pile of Autumn leaves!

Some of the colors are exclusively Warm and rich, some of them are exclusively Deep and strong; some are exclusively soft and MUTED with grey added to soften and blend. It is this rich blend of intensity and undertone that takes away any harshness and makes this one of the softer seasonal palettes.

This season Kettlewell Colours shows us how to incorporate the colors of the season - RED and BURGUNDY - into the Autumn palette. Mix with sunshine shades to lift your mood or choose the classy classics. 

Bring your color swatch to life!

Holding your brand new color swatch in your hand is exciting - but the next thought often engenders panic as you wonder what on earth you're going to do with it now.

Do your colors change as you age? 

No - your natural coloring is genetic so it never changes.

However, as your hair begins to transition into grey losing pigment, your skin can also lose color.

This is probably more obvious with a Warm skin tone and coloring your hair will allow the warmth to stay dominant otherwise the muted softness can take over.

But... that is by no means always the case and many women continue to enjoy their brightest shades. Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan above has changed from rich auburn to grey/white with no loss of enjoyment in her colors for clothes or makeup.    

If you do choose to color your hair ensure that you add a subtle mix of tones to create a natural look rather than a solid color.  

Like to wear Black?

When you've had seasonal color analysis Autumn people, in particular, are usually told that Black is a no-no! Well it will never be the best color to wear close to your face but as long as you are aware of that you can make it work.

For the evening wear a slightly lower neckline and introduce some lustrous creamy pearls to bring softness to your face or other jewelry that adds warm color - amber, gold or enamels.   

Enjoy wearing black in general? There's no reason why you can't! As long as you know that black is never going to be good close to your face, then utilise one of your best warmer shades to make it work: a scarf near to your face, a collar over a jacket, even a pair of gold or cream pearl earrings will introduce Warmth.  

In fact, black can add the perfect foil for some of the most brilliant Autumn shades such as tomato red or pumpkin.
