Many were interested in how colour works for you.

I’ll add a little more and hopefully, this will make it easier for you to discern if you’re interested which colour best suits you.

Winter – Stark white or black

Heritage plays a big part in colours.  Of course these aren’t fast rules as we are a mixture of nationalities but for the most part, Europeans, Asians, East Indian and some Native Indians (with ink black hair) are winters as are many with dark brown hair.  Dark brown or chocolate coloured eyes

Summer – Powder blue, Dark chocolate brown

Blonds or brunettes with “ash” highlights with green or hazel eyes (translucent skin tones) some brown eyes

Spring – Periwinkle blue

Blonds, brunettes with soft brown or blue eyes some green but with gold flecks

Autumn- Orange (like the fruit)

Dark brown hair, or hair with red or auburn highlights or bright red hair (usually) eyes can vary from brown to golden brown, cognac

These are very basic descriptions.

If you wrap an article of clothing or scarf around your neck, hiding all other colours and look directly at your face (and any “flaws” you wish to hide disappear) this is your colour.  If said flaws are accentuated, then it’s not your colour. If you look drained, tired, washed out, this won’t be a colour for you.

Hope this helps.

    I love green but it makes me look like I’m on my deathbed.


    • I’m a summer, and there’s only one green I can wear and I don’t cause I’m not a green fan. Which is your favourite colour? pinks, blues, purples? Mostly springs and autumns wear green, summers and winters only one green. are you drawn to dramatic colours, or softer colours? the “in” colours not withstanding cause they don’t count.

    Wonderful post, Phyllis. I always wondered how this works. Jewel tones work best on me. 😉 xoxoM

    I always found greens and browns to be best for my skin tone. I learned about it she’s ago at some make up session actually, as a teenager 😀
