Understanding Colors That Complement You

Seasonal color analysis categorizes people into one of 4 categories...
  1. Winter
  2. Spring
  3. Summer, and 
  4. Autumn
The categories are named after the seasons and the colors found together in nature to help you remember the range of colors they include.  Your seasonal color range will complement the coloring of your skin, hair and eyes.

  • Cool -- Winter or Summer with cool skin, hair and eyes

  • Warm -- Autumn or Spring with warm skin, hair and eye

Winter colors are cool, clear and dark to light intensity. Think of the winter landscape colors. In the low light of winter colors appear darker, but on a bright day with the sun reflecting off snow colors appear pale and icy.

Spring colors are warm, but clear and bright with medium to light intensity. Think of the bright clear colors of spring flowers and the new season’s bright green stems.

Summer colors are cool, but muted and medium-light to medium-dark in value. Think of seeing the landscape through a summer heat haze. The colors are muted, paler versions of Winter’s. The light colors are creamy pastel rather than icy.

Autumn colors are warm, muted and medium-light to medium-dark intensity. Think of fall landscape colors of rich burnt oranges, reds, golden yellows and mossy greens.

When you choose colors that complement your skin, eyes and hair you will look and feel healthier, brighter, younger and slimmer. This is not to limit you from wearing colors you may like that aren't in your seasonal category, it's just meant to be a guideline - not a rule book! :) Hope this was helpful!
