The Difference Between Cool, Clear and Deep.

Hi Yelena  I am hoping you further my color analysis understanding. I am definitely cool but am having trouble determining Dark, Cool or Clear/Bright.  What are the determining factors?  I don't think I'm Dark as I don't have dark eyes. I have dark brown hair, greenish eyes which have some blue in there too I think.  I am not understanding what Clear means and how this is dominant over dark/light.

Thank you

Hello Sandra!
Ok, let's see what are the Difference between this Seasons.
Dark/Deep Season can be described as Strong and Rich. Dark Season has Dark hair and Rich Dark eye color.  Think of Kim Kardashian type of woman. Black looks Great on this Seasons and in pastels the Deep Woman looks kind of washed out.  Since you don't have Dark Eyes then you probably not Dark/Deep Season. 

If you don't see any warmth in yourself then you could be described as Cool. The best way to find out if You are Cool is to hold a golden scarf/tissue next to your face. If you face look sick, unhealthy next to this color then you probably Cool. Cool Season typically has no Yellow in eyes and no golden flecks.

Clear is bright &crisp. The biggest clue would be bright jewel like eyes with crisp white whites. The pigment of Clear Season Eye is pure and heavy concentrated.

Discover Your Colors and Stay Beautiful!!

Having Fun with my Hair

Hey Dolls!
How was your weekend? I hope you had a great time!
So, as a part of my Color Analysis Service I attach a makeover image of a client where I do make up and hair suggestions based on their Seasonal Color Palette. So yesterday I decided why not to do makeover for myself? I used Taaz.com ~ it's a great tool to play around and it's Free!
See what I came out with.

Since I'm Soft Summer with Hazel Eyes, then  Velvety Rich Blonde would look great on me so I used perfect hair color which is more muted with more shades and low light -high light kind of blond.  
It was so funny, my friend on a Facebook went crazy. I got tons of compliments and that made me think that I better do some changes pretty soon.
What do you think?

After getting excited about new changes in my hair I realized that I have extensions that I hardly ever use. It's 18 inch Extensions in Blond Frost from  Euronext.  It's Clip-in Human Hair Extensions, very lightweight { that's the reason why i liked it} and easy to attach to your hair. Take a look.

 I got Blond Frost color because it blends well with my natural color and I like the idea of extension because of the volume and length that it gives. But my dilemma is that my hair pretty thin and I always afraid that somebody would see that I have extensions. Silly right? Or maybe I'm just a little lazy and just not used to it.  
Anyway, my agenda is to correct my hair color pretty soon and learn how to be comfortable with hair extensions, at least for some occasions .) 

Oh, I found this great video from Bubble Dreams  blog on how to Clip hair extensions ~ Check out this Blog. Author is fabulous and got many great hair tutorials.

Do you use hair extensions?

Readers Question

Hi, could you please do some more about Cool Summer? How can I wear a brown coat ( I have one) and other brown and beige clothes?Thank you very much!

Dear Reader,
Of course you can wear Brown Color. You best browns are Cool Browns , think of Cappuccino and  Milk Chocolate. Even if Browns are not from your color palette {not cool} you can always add pretty scarf , pop of color near your face will freshen  up you look.  Experiment with lighter shades such as soft fuchsia, turquoise, lavender, periwinkle. The same goes with Beige.

Look at how pretty Brown looks with pinks.

Brown also Great with Navy and All shades of Blue



I love your website and would like to have my colours analysed, but... I have had them done before twice and had different results, so very confused and not sure if I am silly to spend more money to have them done again.
I'm dark brunette/light olive with some pink nes/ dark brown eyes with grey rims, which apparently can be hard to define... Or so I've been informed twice! What accuracy are your analysis's? I'm now torn between, two winter/two summer palettes. Do you do "flow" analysis or just one season? Do you think brown eyed brunettes can be Summers? I'm wanting to get the right palette sorted so I can get my wardobe in order and start "post baby" shopping :)I would like to get the swatches etc also, can you post to Australia?
If so, what costs am I looking at all up?

Kindest Regards,

Dear Keira,

Congratulations on Your Baby! Great Time to do some changes to your wardrobe!)
I wish I could be more help, but It is really hard to tell without looking at your pictures. You could be Summer , you could be Winter you could be Autumn. I need to see Your pictures and Color Blocks near your face .

You can read customers Testimonials here. All my customers seems to  be very Happy ! 
Send me your Images, If you are not going to be happy with results  I'll refund you your money.
