What is a Seasonal Color Analysis?
>"Color analysis (American English; colour analysis in Commonwealth English), also known as personal color analysis (PCA), seasonal color analysis, or skin-tone matching, is a term often used within the cosmetics and fashion industry to describe a method of determining the colors of clothing, makeup, hair style that harmonizes with a person's skin complexion, eye color, and hair color for use in wardrobe planning and style consulting. It is generally agreed that the wrong colors will draw attention to such flaws as wrinkles or uneven skin tone while harmonious colors will enhance the natural beauty of the individual making them appear healthy, brighter, and possible more attractive or put-together."

Kinda similar to the Kibbe thread, this one is specifically dedicated to personal palettes and colors.

A bit of Kibbefagging, but makeup advice for a Soft Natural Dark Winter? Color theory makeup (strong lip, vague slight blush) looks great on my face with my colors, but too stuffy on my body, and Kibbe-ish makeup (muted colours, lip gloss) makes me look dead. It's also very difficult to find clothes the right color for my image ID.

Now for the real sperging. I know seasonal palettes might be restrictive in terms of skin, hair, eyes, but if I see another warm-skinned poc be typed as a "summer!1!!" (especially on reddit) I'm going to commit a war crime. Why the fuck don't you bother reading up a bit before you make someone overhaul their entire closet? Muted = Summer believers should be hanged, drawn and quartered.

I think I'm a deep/dark winter but I'm still confused about it.

I've noticed that some colors made me look sick/weird/grey even before I knew about that seasonal color analysis thing, so I tried my best to avoid them. But for the longest time I thought I was an autumn until I got some warm earthy colored shirt that looked kinda weird on me.

So, the things I've noticed:
>I look awful in bright, barbie pink
>Same for that very bright royal blue
>Look okay in black or white, but better in ivory or a grayish black
>Look really good in jewel tones
>Look really good in wine/Bordeaux, okay in bright red
>Very high contrast, almost black hair and eyes and my skin is pale. I am pretty sure my face is cool toned but my body seems to be warm toned

Sometimes I just don't know

>I am pretty sure my face is cool toned but my body seems to be warm toned
You're probably warm toned. It's still possible to have some redness in the face if you are pale, even if your skin tone is warm. but because the undertones makes it look a bit different, it can look like your face is a cooler tone than your body rather than what you'd imagine typical redness to look like.

…Can't you just make a mix of these two make-up styles ? or just do the color theory make-up but with a slightly less strong lip ?

Keep in mind both Kibbe and color palettes rely on archetypes ultimately. If you are "mismatched" (have facial features that are not often associated with your body type) you have to think harder to find a common thread to tie your make-up to your clothing style to create a consistent aesthetic.

No. 349109

so glad you shared this one. But I'm also wondering, with a sample that excludes hair dyeing, would everyone end up on the left side?
I think I am a dark winter but the language used to classify the types (hair color, eye color, undertone) is really misleading to me because most East Asians have dark hair, dark eyes, and a yellowish tone. So it's not saying anything helpful that differentiates me from other Asians, even though I can tell that not all of us have the same palette.
Although I have a yellowish tone like most do, it's not warm yellow like some Asians but olive-ish. Almost gray or green. So like a cool yellow? I think the dark winter and dark autumn women in this pic show what I'm trying to say; I look like the winter one. But people always insist I have to be a warm season because I'm not pale pink like some white people and "yellow = warm" and that confuses me. Is cool-toned yellow not something that makes sense?

Being a dark autumn is suffering fr. Shoes and bags I can deal with, but the specific deeper shades that look good on me are so hard to find. Thrifting has been the best so far, and trends last year were relatively favourable so I finally got a coat. But it took me ten years to find a coat in the colour I like that is thick and warm enough and looks good on me without looking like I dug it out of my grandmother's attic where it'd been sitting since 1976.

I'm a bright winter. I can wear crazily bright stuff and look nice, hell I can wear some spring colors if they're saturated enough, yet this palette is admittedly not very appropriate for some occasions as these colors sure look hella tacky at times, it's very awkward when you don't really want to stand out, though grey and black are options.

I look jaundiced in yellow, orange and green, gold doesn't do shit for me neither. I'm forever pissed I cannot wear pastel "princess" colors, if it's not colorful I look undead which is a shame. Autumn neutrals are all the rage rn, so it's hard to find fashionable colorful stuff nowadays unless you're into Y2K styles.

My mom is bright spring, when I was younger I wore her makeup (which is mostly gold and warm) and of course I looked washed, when I bought my own makeup I decided to go for cool tones like guava, silver and blue.

Her contrast is very high as you can see in this picture, her dark eyebrows and eyes pop up immediately on her skin, her hair color variates from black to brown with golden highlights which implies hair dye and that skews my analysis, either way: I'd say deep autumn/ winter, these two sub-types are somewhat correlated

Both winter and summer can be very pale, the difference lays on the contrast of the facial features
>I have red/ginger hair
Natural gingers are very rarely winters, winter needs cool contrast/darkness to the point the warmest and lightest it can get naturally is dark brown at most, so for cool options we are left with summer which is already unlikely too as summer is muted and your coloration seems very intense with such a strong color like a true red, i'd say spring

What color seasons are best for fair, cool olives? I would say my coloring is very close to picrel except I have blue eyes. My best colors are baby blue, lavender, and olive green. My worst colors are turquoise, fuchsia, and coral. Black, mustard yellow, and terracotta look alright. I can pull off warm and cool browns but not warm and cool blues. Even true red lipsticks pull super blue on me and the rest super orange. Only dark brick reds look good on me. Brown and beige lip colors pull pinky nude on me as well.

Apparently I'm a deep winter destined to dress in corporate clothes. I should always wear black and never my beloved mustard yellow. Why live!
It's good advice though, I do look great in these colours, particularly navy, hot pink, and forest green. I'll stick with white and deep brown as my neutrals and get some more bright blues and greens into my closet. Maybe I can get yellow/gold tones in with accents and accessories. Combining this with my Kibbe type (soft classic) and style essence (ingenue), I feel like it's never been easier to build a flattering wardrobe. Dressing up is so fun and exciting!

No. 359012

colorwise isn't the best place to type yourself. I am the warmest toned person to ever exist, warm undertones, warm overtones, black hair that's brown in sunlight, brown eyes that are reddish-brown in certain lighting, look terrible in silver. basically, nobody with working eyes would think I'm cool-toned in any way. but colorwise typed me as a deep winter because I'm a high contrast brunette and apparently it thinks only deep winters can have dark hair and eyes and paler skin. it's also known to classify most poc as deep winters because it thinks dark skin = high contrast.

vivaldicolor, dressika and styledna are better for digital draping although you should take them with a grain of salt because things like the lighting in a certain pic can affect the result. I'd recommend just reading this article tbh and seeing how each point mentioned applies to you. the explanations of each color analysis element are explained in a way that's easy to understand.

and of course doing irl drapes and seeing which colors look best on you in different lighting is the best way to figure out your season

No. 359031

Nonnies Im not about to say that online colour quizes aren't one of the most important inventions of the modern age, but please do manually check your tones by seeing what colour reflects off tinfoil in different lighting, as this will be the primary colour of light reflected back by your body,
- which is what ultimately dictates how your unique tone looks beside other colours in the same lighting.

Putting a layer of differently coloured make up, if opaque enough, will change your tone as this now becomes the primary light reflected back to the eye, obscuring your natural tone. Obvious, but do factor that in and do makeup after clothes if you're a Stacy. I'm not so brave.
ideally aim for the lighting of the setting you will be in, choose complimentary colours to the exact colour shown on the tinfoil test. Check veins, eyes without blinding yourself, even get creative like what are your bones and nails most complementary colours?

No. 359055

I don't think tinfoil has anything to do with color analysis. This is confusing.

No. 359098

Just drape different colours of yourself. I've always thought I was warm bc I'm half asian, yet orange is easily my worst colour, I look ass in warm reds and yellows too, and gold is looks horrible on me. So that excludes autumn and spring. I also look way better in clear colours. Black is amazing on me, but a charcoal grey is not the best. Same with white, stark white is much beter than an off white. So that excludes summer and leaves me with winter. The to narrow it down further, I look way better in darker colours than lighter, so deep winter it is.

No test will be as accurate as looking at yourself in differnt colours. Just hold differnt coloured clothes up to your face when you go shopping.

No. 365454

Have any of you just become more confused about what colors suit you since looking into color analysis? I have posted drapes of myself on some different forums and the comments are always so torn on what looks best. Half the comments will tell me that deep jewel tones look best on me and pastels wash me out and the other half will say pastels look best on me and deep jewel tones are overpowering. At first I was leaning towards either bright spring or deep autumn (I am high contrast, have dark chroma, am clear rather than muted, unsure of undertones as olive skin makes it hard to tell but my overtone is warm, and those two seasons seemed to suit my traits the most). But now I think I could be basically any season except for summer. I just want to change my wardrobe to a more grown up color palette than pink, lavender and pastels now that I'm in my mid twenties and I'm just not sure of what colors actually look good on me (I really don't want to end up like a certain cow who is mentioned too much on here that keeps wearing a shade that clashes with her badly and makes her look porcine). But now I'm just confused. Is this even a real thing, why does everyone have such wildly different opinions on what suits me best?

No. 365457

I think the seasonal color system is true/useful. For undertones, the vein color trick works. If you have high contrast I think deep colors are more likely than pastels. If you can't decide you can try one of those apps that help find your season.

No. 365460

I've tried the vein trick but my veins are sort of teal rather than clearly green or blue so it didn't really narrow things down. I think subtle gold jewelry looks better on me than silver or very yellow gold, so maybe neutral-warm? But idk

No. 365468

nta but i feel like the vein thing only works really well for some people and is just more confusing for others. Mine are multiple colors so it doesn't fit clearly into either side, and I'm not Caucasian which makes some advice unhelpful because the "are you x or y" options aren't applicable possibilities for me to begin with.
You could very well be neutral, if either warm or cold seem to work ok for you then I wouldn't force one side or another, it might help more to focus on traits you ARE sure about (like contrast) when choosing what to wear

No. 365471

i can pick out a few things from your post, firstly, doesn't chroma mean saturation? it doesn't have much to do with darkness. are you sure you're not muted? secondly, your only problem may literally be the posting draping photos online thing. it works significantly better in real life in natural lighting. you gotta trust your eyes!

No. 365474

I meant dark value, sorry. And I'm definitely not muted, my skin has a lot of clarity to it

No. 365522

The vein test isn't really reliable for olives because our veins are always going to be teal. Some areas of my skin look teal, some green, and some blue. The jewelry test isn't great either because neither silver nor gold really pop like they do on other skin tones, a lot of the recommendations I've seen are to go for rose gold instead. It's really hard to type our colors and I tend to be halfway between soft autumn and soft summer kek. A lot of olives don't fit neatly into one category and that's probably why you're getting so many conflicting opinions. I think a lot of us just have to frakenstein our palettes on our own. I just took my absolute best colors that I already knew suited me and worked my way from there. Find some youtubers who have your coloring/skintone and market themselves as olive and see what works for them.

The Korean approach to color analysis is so delusional. They literally choose the season that makes you look paler (aka washed out) totally disregarding natural features, and promote frying your hair routinely, wearing pink base to hide your undertone and even wearing lenses to achieve the looks of lighter seasons. Even though 90% of them got pitch black hair and eyes they get pissed if you even imply they're mostly winter/autumn, like most people with those features. I noticed latinos don't really mind and even embrace winter as a season, maybe because our fashion trends are more colorful to begin with

Soft summer and soft autumn are very close, right?

I'm pale with brown hair and brown eyes, look good in muted colors, and silver looks best on my hand but gold close to my face. My veins are both blue and green but mostly green.

I'd say I'm a soft summer but soft autumn colors also look good.

I also love how i look in bright colors and thought I was a winter for most my life but it's clear I'm muted and the bright colors are just a preference.

is anyone else olive-skinned and routinely mistyped by colorwise.me and other bots (i'm a light-medium warm olive) as different season (for me it's always dark winter)? people irl tell me i'm more of an autumn. when i go get color-matched for foundation and concealer, they always give me cool-toned products (nars radiant concealer in cannelle is my closest match ["light with warm peachy undertones"] but in june i got color-matched with fenty concealer in 170 ["light with cool undertones" but it seems more neutral to me]). yellow gold looks best on me, rose gold blends in with my skin tone, and silver is too contrasting for my liking. i know that dark autumns can borrow from the dark winter color palette, but i'd prefer to overhaul my wardrobe in the new year and have a capsule wardrobe.

should i just go with dark autumn when that's what people who've known me for years say i am? i've been told i'm neutral-cool in traditional makeup terms, but having olive skin makes it tricky. my eyes are a warm dark brown, my hair is a warm black-brown that shines a bit red in the sun, so that's why i lean toward dark autumn.

yes, I'm also an olive and finding our type is so hard. people see our warm overtone and (usually) dark hair and automatically type us as autumns without taking anything else into consideration. the vein and jewellery tests don't work for us as nothing pops. the good thing is that we can pull off most colours and both gold and silver even if they're not our season. on non-olives wearing the wrong colours or jewellery can make them look greyed out or sickly but on olives in most cases wearing the wrong colours will just be okay or boring on us.
I wish there were an olive specific system like how east asians have their own colour analysis systems (and on that note, korean or japanese colour analysis is better than western colour analysis for olives as it emphasises why colours work rather than just giving you a palette of colours to wear. for example, winters are able to wear bold and black clothing because their colouring invites contrast and cool colours seem brighter and more stark. I've read tonal colour analysis is also better for olives).

It’s exhausting to see people misunderstand seasonal colors. Stop trying to type yourself based on what your skin color is or your hair. You just need to drape. Look at 12blueprints or chrysalis color instead of Pinterest.

No. 367226

Figuring this out feels impossible, every website just asks "do you look better in gold or silver jewellery? are you drawn to warm or cool colors" girl if I was already able to tell what looks good on me I wouldn't be looking this shit up in the first place, and being "drawn to" different colors is just a preference and doesn't mean they'll look good on you. All the shitty quizzes I've taken give me winter, but I think that's just because I have a preference/am "drawn to" dark, cool colors, looking at all the charts I'm probably some type of spring/summer. I have very pale skin with warm undertone (but just barely, it's really hard to tell, maybe I'm a neutral?), my natural hair color is ashy dark blond (though it's dyed dark rn) and I have quite bright blue eyes.

No. 367236

I think most people find it difficult to tell if a color is cool/warm muted/soft/bright and find it even more difficult to tell the difference it has on the face.

>or your hair
You're tripping, hair color is very important because it matches the pigments in your skin. Hair color itself may not reveal what specific season you are but it helps discarding

No. 367670

speaking of hair, would hair that looks cool in normal lighting but warm in sunlight be cool, warm or neutral? my hair is a cooler shade of black but looks brown in light which I read indicates warmth as if it were cool it would look blue-ish in light.
and I have the same question for eyes, my eyes are a cool chocolate brown with a dark gray ring but they look russet/reddish-brown in sunlight
I think I might be some kind of neutral as my veins are teal rather than green or blue and neither gold or silver pop against my skin or make it look sickly, they're both just … there. but as to whether I lean cool, warm, or am truly neutral I have no clue. my overtone is warm (almost yellow-ish) if that makes a difference

No. 367678

>because it matches the pigments in your skin.
It doesn't. You can have cool toned skin and eyes and have warm toned hair. I (unfortunately) have that myself and I got a real analysis done so I know I'm correct about my season.

No. 367695

I mainly mean things like brightness, contrast or saturation, not necessarily warm/cold tones. For example, my hair is just plain black, it's pretty hard for me and others with the same hair color to pull off lighter, softer colors or hair dyes, besides some exceptions

No. 367698

ntayrt but why? you can have different kinds of colouring in your skin, hair, eyes and even lips. I’m dark haired and eyed but the colours in my skin are very bright and saturated, so I can pull off colours that fit this (like red and blonde) well, sometimes even more so than my natural colour depending on the shade.

No. 367718

I said "lighter, soft" colors, like baby pink or similar, muted tones. Red is a saturated color so of course it looks good for people with saturated features, I didn't say otherwise.

idk but you sound like a slightly paler or less olivey me. I also cannot wear those pastel/light colors you mentioned. Pink looks especially hideous on me.

I am pretty certain I'm an autumn but treating this stuff as hard and fast rules isn't necessary. I like looking slightly unsettling or melancholic/mysterious in black, so I'm not going to switch that out even though I'm not a winter. I rock the jewel tones you mentioned and deep rich browns make me glow. Let's get chocolate brown suits and conquer the world.

I mean you did say you and others with black hair can’t suit lighter colours, so I was referring to that. There is more to it than hair colour.

you definitely sound like a deep/dark winter to me. deep winters are characterised by their high contrast (dark hair and eyes with light skin in comparison are a common deep winter trait) and have cool undertones. they also look best in deep jewel tones and wine red or plum lipstick.

That's a winter colour, probably deep winter. Seasonal analysis is about how colours interact with your skin though, so you can't find out your season from your eyes.

From various photos in different lighting. I always get some kind of autumn, but I'm unsure what autumn (get soft autumn the most). This is my natural hair color (which has reddish and blonde streaks but is predominantly brown)

I find a lot of the autumn colors very boring, especially the idea that black is a bad neutral for autumns (and "soft autumn" rules say avoid black). I often end up dyeing my hair and wearing bright makeup because I hate the lack of contrast between my hair, skin and eyes

Picrel that I also showed up as a winter a few times and once as a summer, and I much prefer their color schemes. When it comes to neutrals I also much prefer black to brown or tan. The only "autumn" colors I like on the chart are the greens, blues, one shade of the yellow, and maroon, but most of them otherwise don't suit my style, and I also like neutral type pastels that are shoved into the "avoid" category.

Will it make me look that bad if I decide to fudge the color rules when I don't want to wear makeup and clothes whose colors I find hideous?

No. 380167

Just me or is the summer palette really difficult to shop clothes for? Like it's pretty easy to find clothes that are both light (enough) in color and also cool-toned, but light, cool AND muted/soft is basically non existent in women's fashion right now. I did notice it seems to be more common for men's fashion for some reason.

No. 380169

I prefer thrifting since some stores organize by shade and don't fall in line with trends so it's easier to find what I want if it's there. I don't know if that's an option where you are.

I've always hated shopping online unless it's a definitively online only item, I sperg too much over the way things fit

God yes it’s horrible to shop for summer season clothes.

I'm not sure how I feel about this method yet, but I wanna see more of what she says. I don't see her handle, though. Do you know who she is, nonnie? I'm wondering whether she has a follow-up on colors, since it's not only the brightness, but the actual color saturation and hue that make or break a color for each person's complexion. It's not the case that summers can only wear pastels, for example. Picrel of what I mean, sorry for the bad quality.

Some people don't fit neatly in one season. Especially those of us with olive skin, it's common for us to have to Frankenstein a palette because most colour analysis systems aren't made with us in mind. Borrowing from sister palettes that suit you is generally fine. I usually wear colours from the bright spring, deep autumn, and some of the less dark/intense deep winter shades.

I have no idea what season I am. I can't rely on a camera to capture my skintone properly but I have light olive skin with some yellowish undertones. For example, I've used the Bareminerals Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer in both Buttercream and Bamboo in picrel, with some success, though my face runs paler than my body which is a bit browner. My hair is dark brown but looks black, I have the Shayna dark brown eyes too.

Anyway, I really like this dress and don't wear enough light colored things. But I don't know if the cream tone would be unflattering. I've seen mixed things on women with olive skin tones and wearing offwhite or white in general. What do you think?

No. 393781

I know I’m a winter but I’m not sure which type of winter.

I have dark brown hair and am pale, but I look horrible with black hair. So I’m probably not a bright or cool winter. So I’m guessing I’m a dark winter? But I thought you had to be tan and brown eyed for that and I have blue eyes…idk anymore

Since so many color analysis hobbyists say that natural eye color and hair color don't matter, would it be too much of a long shot to say that the best color analysis is what nail color match your skin the most? I feel like I can often tell if a color looks bad on my nails, but not necessarily if the same color is held up to my face next to my hair…

No. 394012

Hair colour matter, but only your natural one. Like a summer that dyes their hair black will still be a summer and not a winter, bc blondes cannot be winter bc blondes lack the contrast. Which is why celebrity blonde women with black dyed hair wear a lot of eye makeup, to up the contrast and get some harmony back .

Are there any olives who look good in yellow or green? I always hear that we should avoid those colours because they make us look sickly, but I think I look really good in mustard yellow. Maybe I'm just delusional and it's making me look mildly jaundiced rather than golden though.

No. 399643

I think olives mostly fall either in winter or autumn depending on if they're more warm or cool leaning. If you're picrel, you look quite tan and warm so I'll definetely pin you as a true/dark autumn. Warm colors do make us look more yellow in general, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. This mustard color would suit an autumn but a bright yellow would look bad, so focus more on brightness and saturation than one color itself. Everyone can pull off any color imo as long as the particular shade suits them. If you're still wondering, try on deep winter colors and see if they look better or worse.

Are any of you familiar with the Zyla system? I find it interesting, but I have black and gray on mine, and one of the few things I know for sure about my colouring is that is that black and gray (and bright white) make me look like the dead, they're so draining on me. My hair is also just flat black throughout so the second and third base tests didn't really work

Are you sure it's black and not dark brown? If your hair is black you would look in black, it's not possible to look bad in a color that you naturally have.

What would y'all recommend for someone with a neutral warm undertone but the brightness, depth and contrast of a winter? I have a yellow olive overtone and olive skin makes it hard to fit into any premade colour season. I like deep autumn colours the most but I'm not muted enough to be an autumn. I think I have too much depth for bright spring (pitch black hair and brown eyes) but I might also just be afraid of wearing the really bright colours recommended for it. Black makes me look like a corpse so I don't think I can pull off dark winter even though I look like one on the surface.
I've posted drapes a bunch of times but I get wildly different answers each time, I've been told I'm everything from soft summer to deep winter.

from my understanding color seasons are just an approximation, so go with looks right to you. if you're neutral-ish warm (low saturation) and deep then try wearing those desaturated warm but high contrast colors.
