You have LIGHT tonal coloring

LIGHT tonal coloring means that your coloring is fragile almost translucent and you belong to the LIGHT Color Family

Your natural coloring:

  • looks delicate almost fragile

  • there is little color difference between your eyes, skin tone and hair
  • your skintone may be pink, ivory or golden but always very light
  • Your eyes will be light blue, grey, aqua, green or occasionally hazel
  • Your hair is fair, blonde or very light brown
  • You often stay looking younger than your years

To look your best...

  • Choose colors from the LIGHT color family to create harmony and balance
  • It's easy to be overpowered by heavy strong color - your LIGHT colors have a lighter pigment
  • They are not all Wishy Washy or pastel shades, just that there is less pigment
  • When you wear LIGHT shades you will always look your most ATTRACTIVE!
  • All the shades in the LIGHT Color Family harmonize and allow you to create a co-ordinated wardrobe. 
  • The LIGHT Color Swatch includes shades from both SPRING and SUMMER palettes

Your prettiest colors are...

  • Pastel blue through to cornflower
  • Lavender and Orchid
  • Aqua and Turquoise, Blue Greens
  • Pastel Pink through to a Deep Rose
  • Peach and Apricot
  • Light Watermelon Red

Your best neutrals are...

  • Stone, Taupe and Pewter
  • lighter navy and lighter greys
  • Soft White and Ivory are better than Pure White

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.

Makeup and hair suggestions

All makeup will look deeper on you than on any one else because your coloring is so fair. It is better to avoid deep colors.

  • Match foundation carefully to your jawline so that it blends well
  • Natural eye shadow colors to shape rather than heavy color
  • Choose gentle taupe and greys rather than heavy black
  • Gentle pink or peachy lipstick with a slightly deeper lip pencil for definition if liked
  • Natural toned blusher

Your hair is blonde, fair or very light brown. If you feel a little colorless or childhood blonde has faded, you can add gentle blonde highlights for brightness. Avoid an overall heavy blonde tone which may overpower your fair skin.

How to visualize your LIGHT colors

It can be difficult to visualize how the colors from your swatch come together in an outfit and for real 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 LIGHT is halfway between SPRING and SUMMER but this is not strictly true. Although both seasons have LIGHT in their makeup it is only the TRUE LIGHT shades from each that are included in the LIGHT palette and other elements that don't relate are excluded.  

If your coloring is brighter (and probably warmer) then you will find some of your beautiful colors in the SPRING collection. If your coloring is softer and more gentle then the more muted and cooler shades may be kinder to your complexion - you'll find many of these colors in the SUMMER palette.  

Your primary consideration is that you aim for lightly saturated colors that do not lean heavily to either Warm or Cool. 

You have elements of both so need to tread a central line.  LIGHT is your primary consideration.
