The Fastest Way to Find Your Seasonal Color Type The Fastest Way to Find Your Seasonal Color Type

Posted on by Valora Abbett 1 comment

Over the years I have discovered that while it is nice to see how each person's skin, eyes, and hair react to various colors; draping in many different colors isn't really needed in order to accurately determine their seasonal color type.

    The quickest and most accurate way is with the four "deal-breaker" colors for each season. These are the most classic shade of red that are the best representation of the seasonal color palette they come from. 

    Only one of them will look best on you and will quickly help you figure out your main season. There is no leeway or guessing with these colors, which is why they were chosen. They help quickly determine your season without the need for draping in a lot of different colors. 

    If You Can't Wear Cranberry Red -

    You're Not a Summer

    Cranberry Red

     A cranberry red, which is a deep soft red-violet, is a classic Summer color. If this color doesn't look amazing on you then sorry, but you are not a Summer color type. Every season has a red, but this particular hue is in the Summer palette.

    If You Can't Wear Bright Red -

    You're Not a Spring

    When most people think of Spring colors, a bright red is usually one of the first colors that come to mind, if not the very first. A very warm and vibrant shade that will look fabulous on you - if you are a Spring. If you are not, it will look garish and overwhelming.

    If You Can't Wear Blood Red -

    You're Not a Winter

    Blood Red

    If you can rock this intense shade of red then you are most definitely a "Winter" color type. This is not an easy color to pull off unless you have deep contrasty coloring. If this is not your best hue, you will look overwhelmed, drained, and out of place in this quintessential Winter color.

    If You Can't Wear Burnt Red -

    You're Not an Autumn

    Burnt Red

    A deep warm rich red just screams "Autumn". If this color is not one of your best then I am sorry to tell you - you are not an Autumn. This is a very intense, deep, elegant, warm color that looks at home on someone with coloring that is equally warm and soft.

    Of course, these are not the only colors that will look great on each seasonal color type. They are just the best ones to help narrow down which color type you are as stated earlier.  To learn more about the different color types please check out our Seasonal Color Types page.
