How Color Families work
5 Look at your colors in the same way
In the same way we looked at colors, we will look at how you describe your own coloring. Choose your answer to each of the following 3 questions.
It's unlikely that each question will give you an obvious answer. Just go for the obvious ones and see which appears to be the strongest.
Q1 Are you Warm or Cool?
Do you have a pink or yellow undertone? If you don't know, check it out here. If it's not straightforward, then it's not a major factor!
Q1 Are you Light or Deep?
Are you fair or is your coloring deeper, if you're sort of in the middle then it's not a major factor!
Q3 Are you BRIGHT or SOFT?
Is your coloring (contrast) gentle or more vivid? If you can't tell, it may not be a major factor!
You can only be EITHER/OR for each question. For example you can only be Light OR Deep. You can only be Warm OR Cool. You can only be Soft OR Muted.
If you have just 1 distinct answer check out the relevant Tonal Color Family to see if you feel a connection to the coloring and the color palette.
If you end up with 2 or 3 distinct answers, check out the relevant Tonal Color Families below and see which you feel the closest afinity to.
Your findings may not be absolutely accurate, but it will point you in the right direction.
