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.

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.

Makeup suggestions

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

Your 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.

However, 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 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 some of these colors in the WINTER palette.

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.
