Color Analysis Cool
Is this your color palette?
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 COOL, you will always look your
best when you're wearing rose or blue toned shades that echo your Cool blue undertone.
Colors with a Warm or golden undertone can make your complexion look quite yellow - and you look ill.
COOL is your Color Family and your
Each of the colors in the COOL color swatch has the same
Primary Color Characteristic as your own. This color palette allows you to re-create your natural coloring in clothes and makeup creating harmony.
First match your coloring
overall look can sometimes be misleading and, at times, you might feel colorless,
sallow or even florid.
A change of tone brings it all into perspective and
the glorious colors in your Color Family will enhance your Cool / blue undertones bringing your natural coloring to life.
The veins in your wrist will be blue toned too.
Your eyes: will be blue, grey blue, green or blue green. They may even be rose brown - whichever color they will all have a grey cast with a darker rim around the iris.
Your Skin tone:
is likely to be ivory, rose beige through to beige. If you find that a
true beige foundation looks very 'flat' on you, this is because you have
a blue/pink undertone to your skin and need to look for a modicum of
pink in the foundation.
Your Hair: is light brown through to a cool mid brown - always with ash tones.You may have a few red tones in your hair if you're in the sunshine but it's preferable to play these down! If you want to add highlights keep them Cool, ash toned.
COOL blue undertones create balance
Every single person with cool coloring
will not look exactly the same but the primary impression is always a cool ash tone.
The cool and sophisticated tones of your COLOR FAMILY will match and enhance your
natural warm coloring. Your skin will look fresh and clear, your eyes
brighter and the shade of your hair more intense as you create Color

Your Color Family has the whole spectrum of Cool tones - both light and vibrant and deep and soft - all with a crisp blue
Whether the colors are the light and softer shades shades of Summer or the deep and strong shades of Winter, it is the COOL characteristic
which always dominates.
You're very nearly Summer and Winter but not quite...
Although the COOL color swatch
encompasses many of the shades featured in the Summer and Winter palettes, the Seasons have other elements that don't relate to your
consideration always has to be identifying the truest blue undertone so only the true COOL shades from Summer and Winter are included.
coloring is light then the lighter shades will flatter your complexion near to your face. If your coloring is stronger then the deeper shades will echo your natural contrast.
But this is by no means always the case as it's often mood and occasion that influences your choice of colors.
How to visualize your colors...
It can be difficult to visualize how the colors from your swatch come together in an outfit.
you'd like some real visual inspiration, take a look at a beautiful
range of jersey separates and dresses which bring your Color Swatch to
life from Kettlewell Colours.
They are presented in sections for Summer and Winter but these colors
are all Cool even if some are soft and some are stronger.
If you don't know the best colors for you there's lots of information in the Cool Color Brief or on the Cool color swatch. Understanding is the key!
But there's really no reason why you can't wear and enjoy them all according to your mood and occasion.
Colors to avoid
- yellow tones or anything with a Warm undertone (apart from a sharp icy lemon)
- salmon, orange, moss green, most browns especially ginger tones
How to cope with hard to wear colors
you particularly like some of the 'colors to avoid' or they are
fashionable, simply keep them away from your face and team them with
sharper cool tones.
There are always
ways to make things work; a scarf of your cool tones near to your face,
a collar over a jacket, even a pair of white pearl earrings will
introduce COOL tones.

Makeup is all color. And choosing cool makeup is just like choosing an outfit for your face, after all it's the first place everyone looks.
Just follow your color direction and it's easy to find the colors that allow you to shine.
It's easy to get excited about a Color Swatch and, certainly, the Cool color palette is very wide.
But until you clarify your basic (almost boring) neutral shades, it's impossible to begin any kind of color co-ordination.
Do you have blue-blood? If you have cool skin, the veins on your wrist will appear blue, whereas on a warm skin the veins will appear more green.
