Seasonal Color Analysis WINTER...

Winter Seasonal Color Analysis

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. 

Beautiful Megan Fox (pictured right) has almost a porcelain complexion and a very obvious blue undertone to her skin giving a pink toned complexion.

- a stunning mix of DEEP, COOL and BRIGHT

Winter Seasonal Color Analysis

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. 

Create balance with WINTER colors

The beautiful array of colors in your COLOR FAMILY will enhance and intensify your coloring making your skin and eyes clearer and minimizing blemishes. A natural bloom will appear; the right make-up will enhance this even more.

Your most flattering colors are:

  • Cool with a blue undertone, Deep and Clear (Bright)
  • the deepest and coolest. Winter is the only palette that has Black and White as the highest contrast. 
  • the clearest strongest, coolest shades - royal blue, emerald green, rich true red, strong magenta, bold hot turquoise
  • all your colors are just as perfect for vacation wear as for the coldest days of the year
  • team these strong tones with the iciest shades of the winter landscape - pure snow white, icy pink, icy blue, icy turquoise, icy aqua
  • all the glorious colors we see streaked across the wintry skies will enhance your bright eyes
  • There is one strong sharp yellow - although it may not be good or everyone.

Your most flattering Neutrals:

  • Black, charcoal and cool silver greys - they provide the intensity that's needed to show off your brilliant color palette
  • Taupe, cocoa and a cool linen shade work brilliantly for the warmer weather
  • Pure white or bright ivory will always be your best contrast.

Colors to avoid:

  • Dusky or muted shades, wishy-washy pastels - they will flatten your brightness
  • Avoid anything with a golden (warm) undertone, it will make your skin look yellow and you look ill!
  • Anything creamy, yellow/orange, yellow/greens, ginger browns, rusts, brick red

If you must wear any of these colors then team them with one of your best Winter shades next to your face and create a crisp contrast. A scarf or a collar over a jacket, silver or white pearl earrings will introduce Cooler tones.

Sadly, Seasonal Color Analysis is often determined incorrectly.

If 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.
