Seasonal Color Analysis WINTER...

A true Seasonal Color Analysis Winter is the most stunning of the Seasonal color palettes.

As the dewy, warmth of Autumn color gives way to the keen winds of the year's end, the colors become CLEAR and BOLD - STRONG and ICY!

The Winter palette is made up of 3 color families - COOL DEEP and BRIGHT. 

You will always have a blue undertone to your skin and strong clarity to your coloring, i.e. high contrast. 

Beautiful Megan Fox (pictured right) has almost a porcelain complexion and a very obvious blue undertone to her skin giving a pink toned complexion.

But not everyone will look exactly the same...

Because the Winter season is made up of 3 different color families every person does not have the elements of COOL, DEEP and BRIGHT in exactly the same quantities.

Your hair:

is always strongly colored but it could be from mid to dark brown even black. 

Your skin:

is always Cool but it could be very fair like Megan's or it could be beige through to bronze or dark brown.

Your eyes:

are always clear and strongly colored. The fact that they are Cool is not always immediately obvious - they could be blue, grey/blue, grey/green, brown hazel even black brown - and you will have well defined eyebrows providing a strong contrast against your skin.

- a glorious mix of DEEP, COOL and Bright

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

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

If you've been analyzed as a Deep Winter, Cool Winter or Bright Winter then your color palette has been diluted.

It probably means that you lean more directly towards Deep, Cool or Bright, rather than having a good mix of them all.

If this is the case you might not really be a true WINTER! Most importantly, you might be missing out on additional colors to wear and enjoy.

In fact all the hard work is done for you!

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

  • Avoid dusky or muted shades, wishy-washy pastels - they will flatten your brightness
  • Avoid anything with a yellow (warm) undertone - it will make your skin look yellow and you look ill!
  • that is anything creamy, yellow/orange, yellow/greens, ginger browns, rusts, brick red

If you are Seasonal Color Analysis Winter then it is better to avoid warm golden tones, yellows and oranges, tan and mustard, light pastel colors and warm shades like salmon or coral. These  will never be your best shades but if you must wear them, team them with a cooler color near to your face to create a crisp contrast.

Pure white will always be your best contrast and you can introduce a scarf near to your face, a collar over a jacket, silver or white pearl earrings will introduce COOLER tones.
