Color Analysis WARM

Are you Color Analysis Warm?

Looking 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 WARM, you will always look your best when you're wearing colors with a Golden or Yellow undertone. 

Colors with a blue undertone (Cool) will make your complexion look quite pinched, even grey!

WARM is your Color Family and your color direction.

Your coloring is invariably identified with a golden glow and the glorious colors in your Color Family will enhance this further. 

Each of the colors in the WARM color swatch has the same Primary Color Characteristic as your own and will complement your natural coloring - creating harmony!

First match your coloring...

Your color direction is naturally WARM and your hair and eyes will have soft golden tones. 

Your Warm skin tone: could be ivory through to a golden beige or bronze often with a sprinkling of freckles.

The veins in your wrist will usually be visibly green. 

Your hair eyes and skin tone...

Your hair: will have elements of red or auburn, from a strawberry blonde through to rich deep auburn.

It could even be a rich deep chestnut but you are likely to have been a golden haired child. People with grey hair can still be warm but you will have had elements of red at some time.

Your eyes: beautiful warm eyes in shades of brown, green, turquoise or hazel - they even be flecked with yellow tones.

Warm golden tones create balance

Every single person with warm coloring will not look exactly the same but the primary tone, the 'first impression' given is always a golden warmth. 

The golden 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 Balance.

How to visualize your WARM colors

For 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.

It's sometimes said that WARM is between Spring and Autumn but that's not strictly true!

Although both of these seasons have Warm as an element, the Warm color family takes just the TRUE WARM shades and excludes the elements that do not relate. Whether the colors are the light and fresh shades of Spring or the soft and glorious shades of Autumn, it is the WARM color characteristic which always dominates.

Kettlewell Colours make a range of jersey separates and dresses which bring to your color swatch to life. Although they are presented in sections for Spring and Autumn some of the colors will cross over because they are all WARM.

Just that some are soft and some a bit stronger.

If you don't know the best colors for you there's lots of information in the Warm Color Brief or on the Warm 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

  • anything with a Cool (blue) undertone - it will be cold and harsh on a warm complexion

  • icy shades and harsh strong pinks, pure white, deep greys and black  

How to cope with hard-to-wear colors

If you have garments in your closet which don't do you justice, aim to team them with some of your new warmer shades close to your face to soften the effect. 

Like to wear black for the evening? Fine, just wear a slightly lower neckline and introduce some lustrous pearls to bring softness to your face. Ivory and soft shades of peach are wonderful softeners that can be introduced to make things work; a scarf near to your face, a collar over a jacket, even a pair of creamy pearl earrings will introduce WARMTH.

Makeup is an outfit for the face

Makeup is all color. And choosing warm makeup is just like choosing an outfit for your face, after all it's the first place everyone looks. 

Just follow your color direction with a warm undertone.  Choose shades of peach and copper, bronze and rich tomato red.  It's easy to find the colors that allow you to shine. 

You are the important factor and everything stems from your natural coloring.  When both your makeup and clothes are in harmony with YOU then it's magic!

All you need to enjoy your WARM colors...
