Elisa has always believed herself to be a Spring. Her freckles, warm brown hair, and natural flush in her skin caused her, and others, to conclude that the colours in her design followed Spring colour rules guidelines.
I can see how one might look at the light-medium warmish brown hair and see warmth, light, and clarity.
Her eyes are not warm though. They are a medium-dark blue-grey.
The dark brows could make Winter cross your mind, but this feature is no more exclusive to Winter than darkness in general. Every type of colouring has their version of dark colours.
Nevermind the hair and eyes. We established long ago that they are not used in defining the Season. We look at skin, where the full menu of ours colours is found. We are the same Season with eyes open or closed.
Our Season is related to how we react to colour, and not on our general appearance. Are freckles not a sign of warmth? No. Freckles are just another red herring, found in all 12 groups of natural colouring. You have to look beyond them, at the skin.
With Elisa, the moonlit, luminous translucency that only True Summer does so well was there for sure. The skin’s rejection of the slightest degree of colour warmth was there. This skin tone seems to look turquoise in turquoise, and melon in melon.
Elisa has some natural shadowing around her eyes, another feature found in all Seasons. It was least pronounced in the True Summer colours, but wasn’t erased altogether. That’s called Photoshop. Our desire is to unite the colours in the entire face and create a natural, non-distracting canvas. There is a little foundation in the photo and no concealer. On any Summer, I divide foundation with moisturizer.
Elisa is married to the most mannerly man you could ever meet. Aggression and confrontation are disturbing to this personality, preferring to rely on decency and kindness. Courtesy is the most essential prerequisite of all.
