Wearing The True Autumn Landscape

Wearing The True Autumn Landscape

A warm gold eyeshadow, placed as a dot in the center of the upper eyelid, just above the eyeliner, then covered with the usual matte eyeshadow, adds dimension and accentuates that impossible antique gold in the eye. It is like fire inside the eye. A particle of MAC Woodwinked works well.

Seasonal colour analysis communicates our authentic selves in appearance, reflecting the inside on the outside. If the colour feeling we show is not the colour feeling we are, others sense a discrepancy. Appearance may feel disorganized and random.

Drama might simply be colour (or style) minimalism. Women exist in every Season who benefit from intricate adornment just to look normal, and so are there women who look better in sleek functionality in every Season.

In Evangeline's perception, the silver hair seems very cool. Compared to the previous dye, which her self-image learned over years if not decades, it may be. To me, it looks like expensive gray suede.

Please No Colours for Autumns

One reader asked if I see any browns as worse for True Autumn than black. That's kind of a challenge, like telling a massage therapist nothing hurts today :) Spring has some light beiges that are flat on True Autumn. The pink browns of the Summers do nothing to help this person.

Also common in Soft Summer is to overestimate the natural heat level and add copper and toffee to the hair. The hair colour tends to take over the face in the eye of the beholder.
