Seasonal color analysis SPRING...
A true Seasonal Color Analysis SPRING is the most delicate but vivid of all the seasons, a beautiful bright fresh color palette.
If you fit comfortably into this
category your natural coloring is glorious and you have a wonderful mix
of characteristics - WARM, LIGHT and BRIGHT.
Each of the beautiful shades in the SPRING color palette has the same Color Characteristics as your own, to complement your natural coloring and create harmony!
When you're wearing colors that echo your natural coloring your skin and eyes will be clearer and blemishes will be minimized. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.
Seasonal Color Analysis SPRING
a glorious mix of LIGHT, WARM and BRIGHT
is usually LIGHT with a definite golden WARM
tone and elements of light red, golden or strawberry blonde but your hair could be a rich chestnut. You will invariably have been a
golden haired child and even as you age you're likely to carry that 'golden glow'.
The BRIGHTness and clarity of your eye color is one of the most obvious characteristics of Seasonal Color Analysis SPRING - clear blue or turquoise, sometimes green or topaz and often flecked with yellow. There will often be a darker rim around the iris.
Your skin tone:
is fair through to a golden beige often with a sprinkling of
freckles but always with golden/yellow WARM undertones.
Create Color Balance with your natural coloring
The beautiful array of colors in your
COLOR FAMILY will enhance and intensify the warmth and brightness and bring your coloring to life.
Your most flattering colors are always:
- Warm, Light and Clear (Bright)
- Light and bright ivory is better than clinical pure white
- Clear shades of Peach and Apricot, Periwinkle and Light True Blue
- Clear Bright Aqua and Clear Bright Red
- All of these clear shades will enhance your bright eyes
Spring is a mix of LIGHT, WARM and BRIGHT
Your most flattering Spring Neutrals:
- Light warm beige, light camel and golden tan through to deep chocolate brown, warm greys and bright navy blue.
What to avoid:
- Avoid Cool colors with a blue undertone - icy pinks and blues, fuchsia and magenta
- Avoid deep heavy colors - they will drain your lovely golden tone and can make you look quite 'pinched' and grey.
- Avoid dusky or muted shades, they will flatten the brightness of your coloring

Do your colors change as you age?
Do your colors change as you age? No because your natural coloring is genetic so it never changes.
However, as your hair begins to grey, skin can also lose color. Your color palette doesn't change but if you feel a little over-powered in the vibrant colors of Spring, try some of the softer / lighter shades to see if you feel more comfortable.
Pictured here is legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave who shares her Spring coloring with daughter Joely Richardson. Ms Redgrave continues to enjoy her brightest shades regardless of age retaining the 'golden glow' that frequently comes with Spring coloring.

terrifyingly bright palette and, at first glance, very few neutrals? How do you begin dressing in your colors and looking fabulous?
It's easy to get excited about a Color Swatch and, certainly, the Spring shades are some of the most glorious shades around.
But until you clarify your basic (almost boring) neutral shades, it's difficult to begin any kind of co-ordination.
