This eye appears to have a gathering of orange around the pupil, as we described for Autumn eyes. The take-home message: You can’t tell Season from eyes, pictures, stereotypes, or any other assumption. Sit yourself down in your colour analyst’s chair and find your answer the right way.
Our Season doesn’t change with age, but we do. So does the world around us. Today, outfits for several Soft Autumn women, to see the Season through different eyes and points in our life journey.
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.
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.
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.
Traditional flesh tones are excellent – though we’re wearing our correct makeup, we’re all wearing flesh tones…our own!
Of all the Winters, True adds the fewest colour elements. They are perfectly defined and refined by B&W alone, in symmetric but strongly defined shapes. One colour should stand alone, like one leaf left on a frozen tree, one red berry on a bush.
Accessories are a perfect opportunity to wear bright and happy colours, possibly a touch brighter than you might choose in apparel or cosmetics, depending on the occasion.
Among the Bright Winter test drapes is a gleaming dark sapphire fabric. Not only is it electric blue, it is very shiny. Nobody, but nobody, can balance that colour unless they are Bright Winter. It dominates even True Winter unquestionably. Myles wore it with ease, and without fidgeting the way men do in shiny fabric. He felt confident, attractive, and relaxed.
