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

Posted on by Valora Abbett 0 comments

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 colors 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 season. There is no leeway or guessing with these colors, which is why they were chosen. They help eliminate the need for draping in a lot of different colors. 

    If You Can't Wear True Pink -You're Not a Summer

    True Pink from the Summer Color Palette

     A true medium pink 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 few shades of pink, but this particular hue is only found in the Summer palette. 

    This color is not to be confused with Magnolia Pink from the Spring palette, Hot Pink Sunrise from the Winter palette, or English Rose from the Autumn palette.

    Pinks

    I recently replaced this with Mauve since I noticed an unusually high amount of Springs and Winters were choosing this as their best color. While Springs and Winters do have several lovely shades of pink in their palette, a true pink is only found in the Summer color palette.

    Since mauve is also a very classic Summer color, I knew this would be an ideal substitute. 

    Mauve is Best for Summers

    If You Can't Wear Coral - You're Not a Spring

    Coral - Spring Palette

    When most people think of Spring colors, coral 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. 

    This color is not to be confused with Iced Tangerine from the Winter palette or Salmon from the Autumn palette.

    If You Can't Wear Deep Magenta - You're Not a Winter

    Deep Magenta

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

    Not to be confused with Fuchsia from the Spring palette, Soft Fuchsia from the Summer palette, or Beauty Berry from the Autumn palette.

    If You Can't Wear Rust Red - You're Not an Autumn

    Rust 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. 

    Not to be confused with Camellia Red from the Spring palette, Burgundy Wine from the Summer palette, or Blood Orange from the Winter Palette.

    Rust shades

    I have also switched out this color for Cinnamon since I noticed an unusually high amount of Winters and Summers choosing this shade. While it is a gorgeous color it is not flattering on cool skin tones. 

    Cinnamon is another classic Autumn color that I guess is a little more obvious.
