Here is how you really get gray right in your wardrobe. Reading about it only gets you so far. The shopping breakthrough is taking the fabric to the store. Compare the colours under the same lighting. Then, it becomes easy and fast.
What about all the people who see colour and time of year differently or live in a land without snow? In today’s post, Jennifer is our guest blogger from New Zealand. From her recent PCA, she found a new awareness of her own colours repeated in Nature.
From where I stand today, these are the colours that I expect to be beautiful on most everyone of these colouring types, or Seasons.
Knowing your white might be the biggest payoff to having your colouring analyzed if you happen to be an Autumn, on whom wearing white every day is a series of unfortunate events.
Your whole face has to wear the yellow, or any colour, so you need to match the whole palette to it. If there are particular colours in your fan that you feel best in, match the yellow to those.
Soft Summer colouring has more muscle than the other Summer groups. Colours are more solid. Texture is a nice way to communicate this man’s strength and add variety to a monochromatic look.
There is no reason to believe that foundation can be matched by Season, because the final colour is influenced by the overtone, the undertone, the idiosyncrasies of the face, the pH of the skin, and the list goes on for an hour.
Eyeliner is important and you need one that allows you to wear a lot without closing down the eye size. Our makeup should be as much as us, not more. And not less, personal taste depending of course.
True Summer, like True Winter, isn’t an overly colour busy Season. In the Winter’s case, it’s because every colour is so much that one at a time is plenty. In the Summer case, there’s a tranquility, like a Japanese Zen garden. The softness of the colours means that they weave together more elegantly than Winter, but a hint of hectic or functional takes the feeling off track. Also no giggles, no sarcasm, no squirting (Spring), and no forcing, no pushing, no controlling (Winter). All is perfect and all will be perfect.
We don’t see hair as an object of one colour like a wall or a pillow. You might not pair those objects but they’re not coloured with hemoglobin, carotene, and melanin.
