The powder/wax duo from the Blueprints line is one of my favourite products: several real-looking colours, easy to apply, wears perfectly.
The unique radiance of True Winter speaks to me as space and solitude on the most majestic, mysterious scale. It is the silence of the ice cave, the rising of a blue white moon over a frozen lake, the jewel that resembles a planet, the yellow flower that could be the sun.
Associate/salesperson/makeup advisor sees brown eyes. Might mean warm. Red hair confirms it. Out comes yellow foundation.
True Winter and True Summer lipsticks exist on a continuum. There is movement between them. The True Springs and Autumns are totally different in cosmetics, except perhaps the odd brown eyeliner.
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.
This higher-than-usual contrasting True Summer can also wear bigger jumps from skin to lip colour, wearing her darker tones in the daytime very easily. She wears a near-fuchsia blush well, as Avon mark Dollhouse, which will read as too sharp, pink, and candy on a more blended True Summer.
In the first comparison, both Seasons find some things to like about black. The analyst cannot know what this is at the beginning. All they see is that both colourings improve somehow. At the end, we will understand that the Soft Summer wanted the darkness. Bright Spring wanted the saturation.
She can be quite beige, with the milkiness of the skin. A monochromatic cream, beige, and light brown makeup palette can be gorgeous, effortless, the ultimate natural face that Light Seasons actually do well at any age (and Winters at no age).
The makeup is not necessarily dark, though it is compared to Light Spring. Every Season has light colours, here as parsnip, lemongrass, asphalt, greige, goldenrod, barley gold, and many others.
Forest green is too sharp and obviously a cosmetic most of the time. This is a grayer, browner green, for instance, Merle Norman Hazel.
