Color analysis is about finding colors to enhance your natural colorings – your skin, eye and hair colors. It helps you look more gorgeous. Now let’s discuss the different methods to find your colors.
If you are new to color analysis, the quickest way to find your colors is using the warm colors cool colors scale. Warm and cool colors are the broad categories of colors. Warm colors have a yellow undertone, e.g. red, orange, etc. And cool colors have a blue undertone, e.g. violet, pinks, etc.
To understand which category you fit into, I need your true eye color, hair color and skin color, especially in this order. By this, I mean no makeup on your skin, no colored contact lenses in your eyes, and your natural hair color, before you colored your hair, or used any kind of hair treatment on your hair.
So if you have olive skin (also known as beige or tan skin), black hair and brown eyes, you are most likely to be ‘warm’. As mentioned above, warm colors tend to have a yellow, beige, brown or olive undertones (see chart below).
Once you determine if you’re warm or cool, it gets quite easy to understand which colors suit you. But if you need to be more specific, you can also find colors according to color seasons. Hence, color analysis is also known as seasonal color analysis or color seasons analysis.
In seasonal color analysis, colors are categorized into four different color seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Going back to my previous example – if you have olive skin, black hair and brown eyes, you most likely belong to the Winter color season. You can choose colors like green, black, red, etc. in your clothes, accessories and makeup. And silver jewelry will suit you the best.
So by this seasonal color analysis, you can understand which colors to pick in your clothes and accessories, and if you are interested, you can learn about the kind of jewelry you should be wearing. Wanna know yours right now? Use our Contact Form for a quick color analysis.
