Seasonal color analysis AUTUMN!
Is this your Color Palette? Do these colors feel LIKE YOU?
A true Seasonal Color Analysis AUTUMN is the most elegant and sophisticated of all the color palettes.
As Summer fades into Autumn glory, the colors become soft and rich, warm and blended.
The Autumn shades can be heavy on some people, but on you they look CLASSIC and ELEGANT, RICH and EXPENSIVE!
If your color characteristics are Warm, Deep and Muted then these are the colors for you.
The AUTUMN color palette allows you to re-create your natural coloring in the clothes and makeup that you wear.
This creates COLOR BALANCE and harmony!
Seasonal Color Analysis AUTUMN
- a glorious mix of DEEP, WARM and MUTED
will be warm green, golden or deepest amber, hazel, turquoise/teal - often with yellow flecks.
You have medium contrast - there is usually a reasonable contrast between your eyebrows, skin and hair color.
is likely to be auburn through to a rich Warm Deep chestnut, sometimes even darker.
Your skin tone:
is WARM - ivory, golden beige through to a deep coppery tone - and always with a golden undertone. You may actually look quite fair against dark hair and have freckles.
AUTUMN colors balance with your natural coloring
The beautiful array of colors in your COLOR FAMILY will enhance and intensify the warm golden undertones and bring your coloring to life. Your skin and eyes will be clearer blemishes will be minimized. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.
Your most flattering colors are:
- Warm, Deep and Muted (soft)
- with a golden (yellow) undertone)
- Ivory and cream is always better than pure white which is too stark for your warm complexion
- every shade of nature from deep golds and oranges, rich reds and greens, heathery blue mountains and deep teal of the sea
Your most flattering neutrals:
- camel and coffee brown through to the deepest chocolate
- ginger and terracotta through to the deepest rust
- Warm marine navy, warm grey or olive green
Colors to AVOID:
- Avoid colors with a blue undertone, too harsh for your complexion
- Avoid colors that are too pale - they do not match the depth of your coloring
- Avoid colors that are harsh and bright against your softnes
How to cope with hard-to-wear colors
Raspberry, royal blue, blue red - are not your best
shades. If you must wear them, team them with a warm soft shade close to your face to soften the effect.
How to bring your color swatch to life!
your brand new color swatch in your hand is exciting - but the next
thought is often panic as you wonder what on earth you're going to do
can be really difficult to visualize how all the beautiful color shades
will actually transform themselves into an outfit and find their way
into your wardrobe!
For real visual inspiration visit Kettlewell Colours who make a range of jersey separates and dresses in all the colors from your color palette.
are photographed and displayed according to Season so you can easily
see how the different shades of Seasonal Color Analysis Spring harmonize
and work together.
You'll find all your wardrobe basics in flattering shapes and sizes - in fact all the hard work is done for you!
It's misleading to think that because Autumn colors are WARM, DEEP and MUTED that they can't be VIBRANT and yes almost BRIGHT! It is this rich blend of color that makes the Autumn palette so intense and almost dramatic but retains the softness.
You don't have to look like a pile of Autumn leaves! In the image above you can see how the strong REDS and BURGUNDY mixes with the sunshine shades as easily as the classic neutrals.
Do your colors change as you age?
No - your natural coloring is genetic so it never changes.
However, as your hair begins to transition into grey losing pigment, your skin can also lose color.
This is probably more obvious with a Warm skin tone and coloring your hair will allow the warmth to stay dominant otherwise the muted softness can take over.
But... that is by no means always the case and many women continue to enjoy their brightest shades. Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan above has changed from rich auburn to grey/white with no loss of enjoyment in her colors for clothes or makeup.
If you do choose to color your hair ensure that you add a subtle mix of tones to create a natural look rather than a solid color.
What do I do now? That's probably the first thing most of you say when you first hold a brand new color swatch in your hand!
How do you begin to translate those beautiful colors into your wardrobe?
All these ladies have had Online Color Analysis and are kind enough to share with us the way Autumn colors work for them. This is such great visual inspiration!
If you're used to sinking into soft warm woollen fabrics, deep piles and rich coloring of the Autumn colors, it might initially be difficult to visualize the same shades in the sunshine.
But these same rich colors will easily translate Autumn colors into Summer easy and comfortable styles.
Think Mediterranean vineyard or the dazzling spectacle of a Caribbean sunset - they're all AUTUMN colors!
It's often considered a no-no but Autumn colors are brilliant and, as long as it doesn't wash you out, black can actually good!
There are no 'wrongs' with color you should wear whatever makes you feel good.
Sadly, Seasonal Color Analysis is often not determined correctly.
you've been analyzed as a Deep Autumn, a Warm Autumn or a Soft Autumn then you may not be a true AUTUMN at all and the color palette is
likely to be diluted.
