Just as in nature this seasonal color type encompasses all that is bright and vibrant during this time of year. Fresh grass and leaves, clear skies, flowers galore, migrating and nesting birds in brilliant hues.
If you are lucky enough to fit into this category your skin, hair, and eyes will have a bright luminous quality, because of this you can handle wearing very bright clear colors that are predominantly warm combined with some cool colors and some softer shades as well. Springs typically have clear bright skin tones ranging from palest ivory to deep golden browns. Freckles are not uncommon.
As you can see from the pictures below the golden (yellow-orange) or golden-peach undertone is quite obvious even in the lightest ranges. At first, it may not seem so obvious but if you compare a pale-skinned Spring to a pale-skinned Winter you will see that the Springs skin is much more yellow than the Winters porcelain-pink skin; as seen here in Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway.
Common skin tones found in Spring are bright warm ivory, pale to deep peach, clear golden beiges from light to medium-deep. Freckles are common. The skin may appear slightly ruddy or the cheeks may contain a lot of peachy-pink or flush easily. The bottom line is that the skin has a brightness or clarity too it, which is what sets it apart from the other warm season or Autumn. Springs are bright and Autumns are soft.
Hair colors vary quite a bit - from light flaxen and golden blondes, strawberry blond to strawberry red (brighter and more golden red then the orange-red found in Autumn), red (less orange and brighter than the red hair found in Autumn), golden browns, and even dark chocolate brown. The golden tones are usually quite obvious and they are brighter and more yellow than those found in Autumn. More yellow-gold and less brass is one way of looking at it. As Springs age their hair often takes on a bright golden-gray cast and in some cases, it turns into a lovely warm pearly white.
Some Spring's hair color starts out very light blonde and then darkens as they get older to a light to medium brown. This can have a slight softening effect on the overall tone of the hair. However, don't mistake these very slightly softer tones for the mousy or ashy tones (gray-brown or silvery overtone) found in the Summer color type.
Typical eye colors found in this seasonal category are - clear warm blues, aqua blues, clear warm grays (may pick up hints of blue or aqua), clear warm greens, clear warm hazel, and bright golden browns. Again the brightness of the eyes matches the overall super bright look also seen in the hair and skin.
Clear also denotes a translucent or glassy look to the colors found in the eye.

As with all of the seasons you will find that lovely combination of brighter and softer colors mixed
with deeper and lighter ones. The overall look though is super duper bright. The lit-from-within look is a good way to look at this Season.
To help demonstrate the beauty of this Season even more here are several examples of celebrities that fit into this category. As you will see to the right even the deepest Springs are still bright.
Here is a good example of actress Michelle Williams who
just happens to be a Spring wearing the wrong colors in
the first picture and the right colors in the second set of
photos. Notice how the dark navy dress, cool muted makeup, and ashy blonde hair dulls her overall look. Her facial expression even looks a bit serious.
While in the other photos her hair is more golden, the lovely clear pink lip and cheek she is wearing gives her a gorgeous rosy glow, and she just radiates in the clear bright warm red dress she is wearing. Not to mention how happy and cheerful she looks. As a Spring she needs high-chroma (clear) colors as do all Springs.
As you can see wearing the exact right colors for your season really does make a difference. To order the full Spring palette, fashion guides and makeup lists visit our shop.
