A true Seasonal Color Analysis Winter is the most stunning of the Seasonal color palettes.
As the dewy, warmth of Autumn color gives way to the keen winds of the year's end, the colors become CLEAR and BOLD - STRONG and ICY!
The Winter palette is made up of 3 color families - COOL DEEP and BRIGHT.
You will always have a blue undertone to your skin and strong clarity to your coloring, i.e. high contrast.
Actress Catherine Zeta Jones (above) has grey/brown eyes and, even with a tan, has a blue undertone to her skin giving a pink toned complexion.
Because the Winter season is made up of 3 different color families every person does not have the elements of COOL, DEEP and BRIGHT in exactly the same quantities.
Your hair: is always strongly colored but it could be from mid to dark brown even black. Or of course you could have grey hair and still retain a strong intensity that supports the Winter colors.
Your skin: is always Cool but it could be quite fair with a pink tinge, or beige through to olive/dark brown.
Your eyes: are always clear and strongly colored. The fact that they are Cool is not always immediately obvious - they could be blue, grey/blue, grey/green, brown hazel even black/brown. You will have well defined eyebrows providing a strong contrast against your skin.
The WINTER palette of beautiful colors will enhance and intensify your natural coloring making your skin and eyes clearer and minimizing blemishes. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.

Sadly, Seasonal Color Analysis is often determined incorrectly.
you've been analyzed as a Deep Winter, Cool Winter or Clear Winter, then you may not be a true WINTER at all and your color palette is
likely to be diluted.
