Readers Question: What Season am I?



"First, I absolutely adore your blog. My question is this: Have you ever worked with a person who does not fall in one of the seasonal categories? I just cannot seem to fit in. For example: I was once told I was a "winter" my hair is naturally very dark brown and my skin tone is medium with freckles. my eyes are medium hazel.I don't like to wear much color, and prefer black. I think the two colors that look good on me are a very rosy saturated coral and a deep saturated plum.. I don't think blue looks very good on me unless it is midnight. I thought perhaps deep autumn, but peach and apricot make me look sick. 

I have an olive cast to my skin and when I have held up gold and silver in the store, people have said they can't choose, they look equal.When I look in your choices for winter, some of the colors look terrible on me. When I look in your deep autumn, some of those would work and others would look terrible. My daughter is getting married next summer and I really want to wear a color that looks great on me. Thank you so much for your beautiful blog, i enjoy it every day."


Hello!
Thank you for your kind words AND Congratulation to you on your daughter's marriage ~ that is MAGICAL! Don't you worry we can fix your Dilemma!!!

First of all~ you are either Deep Autumn or Deep Winter.

Now, plum is a gorgeous color that pretty much can be worn by both Seasons, BUT Rosy coral tells me that you probably on a cooler side, which leads to Deep Winter.

There is a TEST that you can do at home and see which color pallete looks good on you.

To determine whether you are  Deep Autumn or Deep Winter DO Compare:


Deep AUTUMN - Deep WINTER 




{You can use T-shirts or Scarfs. See the reaction on your skin. Choose the colors that flatter you the most.}

Warm Regards,

Readers Question: Bright Accessories for Soft Autumn



Yelena,
I have two questions:

When you say Soft Autumn should brighten accessories can you give some examples? I assume you don't mean light gold.
Do you find that people with blue eyes and gold/brown flecks always a warm or warm/neutral season?
Thanks, Suzanne


Hi Suzanne,

Definitely you can use brighter colors from you palette as an accessories {shoes, bags, jewelry}

If you like Bright colors, why don't you do odd combinations such as purple and wine or aubergine and salmon pink. 

Interesting Color Combo for Soft Autumn:

emerald turquoise+mint
wine+salmon
aubergine+dark-olive



These are some Stone suggestion from my Soft Autumn Manual {E-Color Analysis Service}



Great Jewelry for Soft Autumn would be Gold, Copper, Bronze, Creamy Pearls, Warm Stones & Enamels, Wooden Pieces,Shells, yellow gold, amber and coral. You can use the same colors in your shoes and handbags.


On your second part of the question it is hard to answer, because I have to see picture of your eyes. If its Cool Blue then you are Summer, but if its Aqua/ Teal blue then we are talking about Soft Autumn. Freckles might be a clue, but then again~ your skin color and hair color matters the most. As an Image Consultant I look at the whole picture.

Hope its been helpful.

Warm Regards,

Seasonal Color Analysis. Part 2




My Dear friend  Lora Alexander ~ Famous Seasonal Color Analysist and Writer of wonderful book 
12 Seasons. It was very unclear to me until I met Lora and read her book.

Now I would like to describe in few words What is 12 Seasons Color Analysis and
 how to use it to your advantage.


Every person on planet earth has 1 of 6 dominate “characteristics” in their coloring. By understanding characteristics of color this will help you to understand you own coloring. So:



    Hue--is the name of the color that can be perceived as Cool or Warm
    Value-- change of color from white to black , so it means Dark or Light
    Chroma-- Whether the color appears Clear or Muted




So here you go, we have 6 Dominate “ characteristics” to determine what season are you.




Now, we have to follow 2 simple steps:

  1. Determine your First Dominant, whether you Light, Dark, Muted etc. ( 75% of work is done by the end of 1st step!)
  2. Determine you 2nd and 3rd Dominant.

Lets look closet at Dominants:

Deep -Dark and rich

Light-Light and Delicate

Clear-Clear & Bright

Warm- No Cool undertones

Soft-Soft & Muted




Cool-No Warm undertones




Now that you know what is you main Dominant, we need to figure out what your
 Second Dominant. Either you Cool or 
Warm or Soft or Clear.



How to Determine if you Cold Or Warm?

*Take to pieces of material of scarves in color Salmon and Pink.
*Drape loosely around the neck
*The color “Floods” the face and either enhances the complexion or looks unmistakably wrong


Things to look for when Color Draping





The Wrong Colors:
*Makes the skin look pale, Grey or washed out
*Lines , wrinkles, blemishes will stand out

The Right Colors:
*Makes the skin look clear
*Brings a healthy , youthful glow
*Eyes will sparkle and hair will shy



By now you probably know whats your 1st and 2nd Dominants. 
 By adding up that knowledge we can tell what is Your Season.

Dark+Cool= Dark Winter
Dark+ Warm= Dark Autumn
Light +Warm= Light Spring
Light+ Cool= Light Summer
Clear+Cool= Clear Winter
Clear+ Warm= Clear Spring
Soft+ Warm= Soft Autumn
Soft+ Cool = Soft Summer
Warm+ Clear= Warm Spring
Warm+ Soft/dark= Warm Autumn
Cool + Soft/Light= Cool Summer
Cool+ Clear/dark= Cool Winter



Sounds really easy , right.....but it can be complicated sometimes.....
If you have some question , you can ask me.





* Do you know Your Season
* Would like to learn more about Your Personal Color Season and You Best Colors?
