What season are you?

Season Color Analysis Skin Tone

Complexion refers to the natural color, texture, and appearance of the skin, especially that of the face. The coloring of people is cold (undertones bluish pink) or warm (undertones golden yellow).

The best effect for the skin tone, and also for hair and makeup, can be achieved using complementary colors in clothes, dyes, and makeup. What follows is only a simplified idea of the theory and some of the main colors.

Freckles are small brownish spots of melanin on skin in people of fair complexion. Predisposition to freckles is genetic and is related to the presence of red hair. The same process, which produces sun tanning, causes your freckles although the distribution of melanin is uneven, causing the freckling.

As Freckles are predominantly found on the face, warm colors will be the most flattering for you.Your season is determined based on the undertone of your skin which is either warm or cool. Since you cannot see this undertone, a draping of fabric colors enable you to determine if you are warm or cool.
This is a simple way to find your color palette. Items you will need: A large mirror, large enough that you can see from your chest or neck area up. Scarves or folds of fabric in an assortment of color

Stand near an open window, door, or outside as long as you are not facing direct sunlight.
Wrap the scarves or fabric so that your neck line and upper chest are are covered.
Close your eyes and then open, what was noticed first, your face or the color?
If it was your face you have a good color choice.
If it was the color you saw first it is not one for you.
You will know the right color, it will stay in the background and your face will be noticed before the color.

Test your colors using opposite seasons, Navy against orange and brown, Pure white against a navy. By way of the wrong color, you find the right color.

One thing I do have to mention is that although I have read if you are “cool” and have pinky undertones you should select a pinky-toned foundation, nothing could be more incorrect. Yellow tones are what everyone should use. Yellow is a more youthful colour, pink looks ruddy and should be counteracted. The belief that someone is “Pink”and someone is “Yellow” is majorly outdated, like 1960’s makeup advice. Everyone is essentially yellow toned, and should balance their makeup to correct that to avoid looking ruddy.

Season Color Analysis Eye Color

Blue Eyes

Surprisingly blue eyes are a relatively rare eye color. Found mainly in people of northern European descent, and to a lesser extent, in people of Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia.

In Finland, there is the highest percentage of blue-eyed people, 90 per cent. Many Caucasian babies are born with blue eyes, though their eyes will later darken, or change color.

Most infant’s eye color is set within a couple of days to a couple of weeks, though some people’s eye color will continue to change for a number of years. Although extremely rare, people of Black/African descent may have blue eyes, an example being Vanessa Williams.

Blue eye color is a recessive trait, and the gene must be present (though not necessarily apparent) in both parents for a child to be born with blue eyes. South Asians may also have blue eyes, but this is uncommon.

Eyes without melanin appear blue due to selective scattering of light in the transparent iris; no blue pigment is involved. (Rayleigh scattering, the same phenomenon that causes the blue color of the sky).

In the mid-20th century after the dawn of color films, blue eyes,were considered very desirable in those aspiring to be Hollywood actors and actresses.

Season Color Analysis Brown Eyes

This is the shade most common almost world wide, with shades from brown to nearly black. Light brown is also very common but to a lesser extent. Most of the original inhabitants of Africa, Asia, and the Americas have brown eyes.

Brown eyes also found in Europe, though within European populations they are not predominating to the same extent. In this population, brown eyes are genetically linked to brown hair.

Season Color Analysis Green eyes
Green eyes are most often found in people of Celtic, Slavic, and Germanic descent. Green eyes may be confused with hazel eyes. Sometimes a person’s eye color can change as that person ages. Blue eyes can become green but green eyes cannot become blue.

Season Color Analysis Gray Eyes
Very light blue eyes may give the impression of being gray.

Season Color Analysis Red Eyes
The red-eye effect commonly appears in photographs, especially in those with light eyes. Irises entirely lacking in the pigment melanin appear red, though not in humans, human albinos have blue eyes.

This trait is characteristic of albinism. Under certain lighting conditions, humans with albinism the iris and/or pupil will appear bright red to violet in color, this is due to the translucency of their eyes and the light reflecting off their retina.

Season Color Analysis Hazel Eyes
Hazel usually used to describe eyes that contain elements of both green eyes and brown eyes. Some hazel-eyed people have irises, which transition from green at the edges to a light or darker brown near the center.

Blonde, sandy blond, dirty blond, strawberry blond, platinum blond, flaxen

Hair color is the result of pigmentation due to the presence of the chemicals of melanin. In general, the more melanin, the darker the hair color.

The color of our hair varies from pale yellow to deep black The ethnic distribution of colors has historically varied by geographic area. For example, deep brown and black prevail in the Middle East,North Africa,and Mediterranean Europe, and even darker shades occur in East Asia,South Asia,as well as tropical Africa and Central America.

Lighter brown is more common in central Europe, Yellow/blond in northern Europe, and Reddish in the British Isles. Fair hair is characteristic of the peoples of Northern Europe, particularly Scandinavia (very pale hair is often referred to as Nordic blond.).

Blond hair is genetically associated with paler eye-color (blue, green and light brown) and pale (sometimes freckled) skin tone. It is also normal for hair to darken through childhood. Caucasian babies are generally born with the slightest wisp of fair hair, and then go on to grow hair of the color that they are genetically programmed to grow.

Darkening can even occur relatively late in life (graying of hair is a separate issue, though). Strong sunlight also lightens hair of any pigmentation, to varying degrees. Brunette in common usage refers to dark brown or black hair, especially dark brown hair.

People disagree over whether black or light brown hair counts as brunette. For genetic reasons, a brunette will usually have darker-colored eyes and a relatively dark or olive complexion.

High levels of the dark pigment demeaning and lower levels of the pale pigment phaeomelanin characterize brown and black hair. It is thicker than fair hair but not as much as red hair. Strawberry blonde is a color combination of red and blonde. It is an uncommon hair color.
