Everyone has a Season that's closest to their natural coloring.

  • MUTED tonal coloring can be quite confusing but usually has a medium contrast
  • You have elements of both Warm and Cool tones - unrelated characteristics
  • Because of contradictory tones you find it difficult to analyze yourself 
  • Your hair is usually light to medium brown with either an ash or golden tone
  • Eyes can be blue or blue/gray but more likely to be deeper; hazel, teal, deep green or deep amber.
  • Your skin tone will be neutral; somewhere between warm and cool.
  • All the shades in this palette have the same SOFT/MUTED characteristics as your own and will harmonize with and complement your coloring and complexion

Some familiar faces with MUTED tonal coloring

Muted tonal coloring #mutedcolors #mutedcoloring https://www.style-yourself-confident.com/muted-tonal-coloring.html


  • Neutrals form the backbone of your wardrobe - the investment pieces such as coats jackets, trousers etc. which take you from season to season
  • These colors are great for accessories too
  • Neutrals create the perfect foil for your strong accent colors
  • Your best neutrals are rose beige, gray beige, cocoa, coffee brown, charcoal blue gray and the classy classic olive green
  • Choose soft white or oyster white rather than pure white (too harsh) to wear close to your face
  • A monochromatic look - subtle shades of your favorite neutral perhaps - will look particularly elegant with splashes of accent color.

Makeup, hair and jewelry

  • To complement your Muted tonal coloring, avoid bright and harsh colors
  • Match foundation carefully to your jawline so that it blends well
  • Use natural eye shadow colors to shape, taupe and a natural brown
  • Add color to your Muted tonal coloring with sludgy greens or dusky turquoise

  • Choose a natural soft rose or soft peach blusher
  • Lip color should be a neutral/natural tone perhaps a browny pink; neither too warm or too cool
  • Hair shades should be natural and soft. Highlights will add a subtle brightness
  • A pearl or champage tone is flattering and avoids too warm or too cool
  • For jewelry choose creamy pearls, softly colored stones and enamels; brushed and textured metals and wooden pieces. Softly brushed gold or silver tones.
