One example is once again Soft Summer’s Ego eyeshadow accent for Soft Summers with more warmth in the eye colours. Ego’s coolness results in a look that’s even richer and warmer, an amazing contrast with cool skin and clothing, an impression that is surprising, original, and still perfectly put together.
We start with the many choices available, narrow them down, and adapt them to work for us. Just like we do with Season, fitness, diet, and everything else. Jump in.
The powder/wax duo from the Blueprints line is one of my favourite products: several real-looking colours, easy to apply, wears perfectly.
This True Winter can be, if not monochromatic, then not very colour-animated to look at. The skin can be beige gray with little natural blush. The eyes and hair colours would not look much different on a B&W TV.
Being a Light Season means lighter makeup than other Seasons. Light is not near-white in this context. Too pale is draining and chalky.
For all 12 Seasons, the white is a beautiful brow bone highlight. Here, it is a clear yellow-green clear white, as buttermilk. Clear peachy pink or pale gold are beautiful, especially for a Season that wears colour so well.
The colours should look well together, a feeling of colours looking better for being together. The cosmetic and the swatches become more colourful, crisper, and better defined by being next to one another.
This person does have Winter coolness and darkness. Black coffee and muted charcoal make great eyeliners. Just as their navy in clothing or a suit is a fantastic complement to the orange tones in skin, hair, and eyes, so is it a great eyeliner.
Forest green is too sharp and obviously a cosmetic most of the time. This is a grayer, browner green, for instance, Jungle from the Blueprints line.
On a Soft Season, the liner, lid, and contour are quite close in darkness level, as in medium, with contour only slightly darker. They distinguish their roles by being of different colours in similar darkness levels, rather than Winter’s variations on one colour (gray) in extremes of darkness levels. On a Winter, light means really light and dark means really dark.
