The Late Summer color category (also called Soft Summer in other systems) encompasses the end of summertime. The natural coloring of the individuals in this category as well as the colors in the palette are reflective of this time of year. People who fit into this category are often mistaken for an Autumn because their coloring is more subdued than other Summers.

Coloring Characteristics

Skin Tone

The skin will have a warm (yellow/red undertone) and often appears very neutral and may have soft freckles. Skin tones in this category range from very pale to medium and are soft or subdued. 

Eye Colors

Eye colors are cool and soft. Blue, blue-green, blue-gray, gray, green, hazel, or brown (grayish, yellowish, or reddish). Brown-eyed Soft Summers are often mistaken for other seasons namely Autumn.

Hair Colors

The hair is medium-light to medium-deep and cool or neutral. Dark ash or neutral blonde, light to medium-deep ash or neutral brown. The hair has a soft or subdued look. As Summers age, their hair will turn soft gray, silver gray, or blue-gray, and eventually a pearl white.
