Still only wearing your pearls with a little black dress?
Classic pearls have always been associated with 'dressing up'. But 'going
out' has become increasingly casual and we're starting to wear pearls
casually too. Theyre fashionable again and even fun - especially for Mother's Day!
So many shades of green - do you know how to choose the best one for you?
the neon brights on the fashion runways and, of course, we're not all Irish, but there are so many fabulous shades of
green in the stores and there's one that's just right for YOU!
Why am I not a Season?
I know I am light, but so
confused because I have both warm and cool elements! I have yellowish
fair skin but warm lipsticks and blushes look horrible on me. My natural
lip is mauvey! I would dearly love to sort it out and figure out once
and for all what are my neutrals! Why am I not a season? Linda, USA
Hi Linda - Each Season has 3 characteristics but Warm or Cool is a given - 2 Warm Seasons 2 Cool Seasons. But it doesn't work for everyone, it's unrealistic to expect that we should fit into just one of 4 boxes!
However, with both Warm and Cool elements, it sounds as though undertone is not your primary characteristic. You need both Tonal and Seasonal Color Analysis to determine your color direction accurately. Both methods work the same way, and are inter-linked.
If you're looking for a color professional find one who offers both methods, or pop over to Color Analysis here.
When I talk about Color Families (look under COLOR in top Nav Bar) I list the most usual color characteristics. Aiming not to confuse, descriptions have to be generic. But of course we are all very different and how any individual reacts to a color palette can throw up a more unusual combination of characteristics.
You are used to seeing Winter coloring with dark hair but Nancy is naturally platinum blonde! And yet, with fabulous jewel-like eyes and high clarity, she responds to the Winter palette. The platinum hair has such 'intensity' that it becomes the 'deep' part of Winter and responds to the Winter colors in just the same way as dark hair that has transitioned into bright silver.
A lady with Spring coloring invariably has golden or strawberry blonde hair and yet Holly's hair is chestnut. As a golden blonde child the warmth had certainly remained but her fair skin and bright eyes completely over-ride the depth of hair color. She lights up with the Spring palette.
Read what Nancy and Holly have to say HERE and if you're ready to unravel your coloring conundrum (wherever you are in the world) pop over to THIS PAGE.
Enjoy the beginning of Spring
