The True Summer section applies. There is more warmth here as a definite first warm weekend in May. Outdoor glows are great but controlled. A pale pink gold gloss OR an uplight on the cheeks is plenty. You are a Summer, not a Spring, so restraint is needed. A May picnic isn't the same as the beach in July. As a Neutral Cool colouring, remain cooler than warmer in everything you add.

The eyeliner is not much darker than the eyeshadow. In this Season, liner can distinguish itself by being a different color than the shadow, instead of a darker color.

Autumn is nothing if not sensible. They are quick to adapt to what works and many know what they will see before they sit down.

The eyeshadow in icy violet is incredible. Merle Norman makes Freesia and it is gorgeous for a reason. The icy is Winter. The violet is the complement of yellow, a component of all Spring skin.
