The Seasonal Characteristics

So far in this series we have looked at various ways to find the best colours to suit your skin tone.

We have looked at why it matters, and what you are looking for. We’ve had quite a tour of colour theory, looking at how it relates to analysing your own colours, and then we looked at warm and cool skin tones, and the things to look for in each.

Now we are onto the final post in this series!

In this blog post we are going to look a little further than just the warm and cool skin tones that we looked at in the last post. So, we are going to subdivide them down further into the four seasons.

The warm skin tones can be divided down into Spring and Autumn.

The cool skin tones can be divided into Summer and Winter.

By looking more closely at the characteristics of each of the four seasons you can hopefully narrow down the colours that are going to look best on you. Use the criteria below to decide which one season you sit best in.
