You have BRIGHT tonal coloring
BRIGHT tonal coloring has elements of both Warm and Cool
If your primary characteristic is BRIGHT
- Your natural coloring is striking
- There is a strong contrast between your hair and skin tone
- Your hair will usually be much deeper than your skin tone
- Your hair will have a strong intense color - red, deep chestnut, deep auburn or very dark - occasionally golden blonde!
- Your eyes are jewel bright!
This is your Color Family and all the shades have the same characteristics as your own natural coloring. All of these shades will harmonize and balance your coloring and complexion.
To look your best...
- Choose colors from the BRIGHT Color Family to create harmony and balance
- BRIGHT shades all have complete Clarity i.e. with no influence of undertone
- Clear colors will balance the clear contrast in your natural coloring and create HARMONY
- You have slight elements of WARM and COOL
and you need to strike a balance between the two. Blue undertones
appear cold while yellow undertones may create an unhealthy glow
- BRIGHT shades will allow your natural coloring to shine and you will always look your most ATTRACTIVE
- The BRIGHT Color Swatch includes colors from both the SPRING and WINTER seasons.
- Black and White, also Charcoal Grey, are BRIGHT or clear tones
Your best colors are...
Neutrals will always...
form the backbone of your wardrobe - the investment pieces such as coats, jackets, trousers etc. shoes and bag, which will take you from season to season. Your brighter and lighter colors will co-ordinate with these basic garments.
You are the only Color Family that has Black and White as main neutrals - your brilliant coloring carries this combination off extremely well.
A monochromatic look - sharp and crisp black and white looks particularly elegant with brilliant splashes of accent color.
If you have Bright tonal coloring your eyes are striking with a jewel brightness... bright blue, turquoise, green or sometimes steel grey. Your makeup needs to be crisp enough to balance this brightness.
- Match foundation carefully to your jawline so that it blends well particularly if you are fair skinned
- Play up the drama with eye makeup to shape and define - strong tones of neutral colors
- Lips can take bold color but ensure that the definition is crisp
- Eyes, brows and lips should be emphasized equally
Hair color suggestions
hair color is intense: red, deep chestnut, dark brown or black. Ensure
that this intensity is not diluted. As your hair greys to a dark steel
grey, your eyebrows will remain dark and the intensity will remain with
your very bright eyes.

How to visualize your BRIGHT colors
It can be difficult to visualize how the colors from your swatch come together in an outfit. Your primary consideration is that you
aim for CLARITY and you can effectively wear and enjoy all the colors in
the Bright color palette.
Take a look at a beautiful
range of jersey separates and dresses which bring your Color Swatch to
life from Kettlewell Colours.
if your coloring is lighter it may lean towards Warm and you may look
your best in some of the lighter clear tones which are featured in the Spring
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 some of these colors in the WINTER palette.
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
