WHAT IS SKIN TONE


We all have different skin tones, it’s part of what makes us who we are. But what exactly is skin tone and how does it affect your style?  Skin tone is an important foundation element in personal color and style. Why is that? Because your natural color palette, best colors that nature created for you, comes out from 3 major elements: your eyes, skin and hair. Because skin is the biggest organ in our body, this makes it one of the most important ingredient in color identification. It probably sounds a bit scientific, but don’t you worry. In few simple steps, I will show you how to determine your skin tone and find whether you are Cool or Warm.

The human skin tone can range from almost black all the way through almost white and every hue in between. This is caused by the amount melanin in our skin and our individual melanin levels are pre-determined  by our genes. There are a number of variables that effect our genes, therefore effecting our melanin levels such as race. Although, there are also external factors that change our tones such as age and time in the sun. All of these factors determine how you find your skin tone so as to wear the perfect matching make up products or required colours for clothing.
Firstly, you need to know if you have a cool or warm skin tone. Simply check the colour of your veins: If they look to be more of a blue colour you have cool undertones, if they look more green you have warm undertones.
COOL and WARM
Now that you know that you skin is Cool or Warm, you can determine what season you are.  There are 4 seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. If you have a cool skin tone you will either be Summer or Winter. If you have a warm skin tone you will fit into either the Autumn or Spring category. Now let’s delve even deeper into Seasons.

Summer is Cool. If you are a summer tone, you should wear lilacs, soft purples, pale blues and should choose pastels and soft neutrals with rose undertones. Hair often contains blue, blue-violet, silver and ash-like undertones. Eyes are usually seen to be light blue, gray-green, blue green,black or stark brown. Generally, cool tones go better with the blue half of the spectrum. Their metal colours are silver and white gold.

Winter is Cool. Winters have blue, red or pink undertones. Their skin colour can range from pale pink to white, be olive or be an extreme dark brown/black. Best metals for winters are silver or platinum.

Spring is Warm. Springs usually have a golden undertone and seem to have a peach or cream hue. Spring people generally have strawberry blonde hair, dirty blonde hair, red hair, freckles, rosy cheeks, and green, aqua or blue eyes. Springs should wear clothes that have yellow undertones. Colours like peach, coral and pastel orange-pinks look best on Springs.

Autumn is Warm. Autumn types have golden, warm or yellow undertones and should wear colours such coffee, caramel, beige and some golden toned reds. Autumns tend to have hair with hints of orange, yellow or gold. Their eye colours are generally dark brown, hazel or deep green. For Autumns, the best metals are gold, bronze or copper.
Once you know what Season are you, it goes even deeper. Each Season divided by 3 category. I made a graph for you to visually see the 12 Color Analysis System.
WINTER and SUMMER
SPRING and AUTUMN
Understanding what skin tones are and how yours influences you specifically, it will help you in the long run with shopping for clothes that are best suited to and to find the closest match for beauty products. It will have an obviously positive effect on the way you look and, in turn, the way that you feel thus increasing your confidence!
Do you know your skin tone? Did you ever tried to find out or maybe hear about it from someone? If you have any difficulties or need some confirmation, I am here to help!

last post about colors...this one is good...according to this im autumn...


2. Determine whether you are a LIGHT or a DARK type

Define the brightness (light or dark) of your eyes and your natural hair color.

COOL undertones
Eyes and hair = DARK –> Winter

winter type characteristics
Eyes and hair = LIGHT –> Summer

summer type characteristics

WARM undertones
Eyes and hair = DARK –> Autumn

autumn type characteristics
Eyes and hair = LIGHT –> Spring

spring type characteristics

Finding your season is that easy ! It may be a bit tricky when you have a mix of light and dark. In that case the most dominant character will determine your type.

Now that you know which “seasonal type” you are, keep reading and find your best matching colors.

The best part of the color analysis is discovering your personal matching color palette! Scroll down and find out what garment colors should be in your closet from now on. Once you know your color palette, shopping for apparel, accessories and make-up will be a breeze !

COLOR PALETTE WINTER TYPE

Winter types should wear colors that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, red and shocking pink all go well with winter complexions. For lighter colors, wear icy tones rather than pastels. Avoid subdued tones like beige, orange and gold.

If you want to see and “feel” the best colors for your type, consider getting a full set of sample fabrics with your best colors and use them for shopping. Check out the convenient “Winter Color Swatch” that you can buy right here. It includes all your winter type color samples in one convenient wallet.

Extra tips:
Use a maximum of 3 colors for your outfit.
Dare to wear contrasting colors like black and white. You are the only type that looks good in black and pure white, use these colors!
For jewelry, silver is your color. Don’t exaggerate with jewelry and accessories.

 COLOR PALETTE SUMMER TYPE

Summer types should choose pastels and soft neutrals with rose and blue undertones. Lavender, taupe, powder pink and powder blue suit summer types very well while black and orange do not.

Check out the convenient “Summer Color Swatch” that you can buy right here. It includes all your summer type color samples in one convenient wallet.

Extra tips:
Wear a lot of jewelry (silver), try different accessories.
For a relaxed and friendly look, choose pastels.

 COLOR PALETTE AUTUMN TYPE

Extra tips:

To convey creativity, mix colors. Make sure to combine colors that match and complement each other well, such as green and red.

COLOR PALETTE SPRING TYPE

Spring types can wear warm colors like camel, peach, golden-yellow and golden brown. Avoid dark, dull colors. Do not wear black and white.

If you want to see and “feel” the best colors for your type, consider getting a full set of sample fabrics with your best colors and use them for shopping. Check out the convenient “Spring Color Swatch” that you can buy right here. It includes all your spring type color samples in one convenient wallet.

Extra tips:
Don’t exaggerate with jewelry, wear gold (colors).
Light colors look best on you.
Wear reds for all of your personality traits. Blue-red conveys assertiveness. An orange-red would be worn by someone who is lively.

Tips for ALL types:

  • Black makes you look slimmer but is only recommended for winter types, all the other types, choose other dark colors.
  • To convey authority and power, wear your dark colors: black and navy blue. (Why do you think the police and other authorities are wearing navy blue or black uniforms?)
  • Clear colors can be used to make your breasts look bigger.
  • If you are a sales woman: do not use contrast, like black/white or blue/white, use harmonizing colors. The contrasts look too aggressive.

Experiment with these new findings. After you found your personal palette, try to analyze your friends and/or family and check if they are wearing their matching colors. If they are not, tell them about your new gained wisdom about color analysis, they will appreciate your advice !
