ANSWER

Hi Sandra

I'm afraid that's a very vague question!

Neutral is usually referred to as having equal quantities of Warm and Cool in your genetic makeup - so your coloring balances between the two. That would mean anything either too Warm or too Cool is wrong for your coloring.

If you know this to be the case, then you need to look for a color palette that also has elements of both Warm and Cool.

That certainly won't be one of the 4 Seasons because Spring and Autumn are both Warm; Summer and Winter are both Cool. That's why Seasonal Color Analysis has limitations.

The color palettes with elements of both Warm and Cool shades are Light Deep Bright and Muted because the primary color characteristics of each of these is more important than the undertone. That is the most important factor of each of these Color Families is exactly as it sounds i.e. Light, Deep, Bright or Muted.

I'm wondering if you've had some kind of Color Analysis already to be sure of your color characteristics. I suggest you take a look at each of these color palettes and see if you feel a fit.

The Tonal Color Brief would be a great investment because you have all the details and color palette for each.

Good luck!

kind regards
Pamela
