Warm season

Warm seasons (Spring or Autumn) have darker hair and skin tones with toasty, golden undertones. Your eyes could be as dark as green, brown, or hazel, but they might also have a golden glint.

Light Summer 

You most likely have the following traits if you are a Light Summer:

  • Hair: Lightly tinted hair, such as strawberry blonde or light to medium ash blonde.
  • Skin: The undertone of skin is neutral, neither warm nor cold, however, it may have a faint pink tinge. 
  • Blue or green eyes

For your ethnicity, bright seasons (Spring or Summer) have light hair, light skin tone, and occasionally a pink tint. Additionally, the color of your eyes will be light or vivid, such as blue, green, or light brown. Light season color schemes are understated yet not dark. In contrast to muted colors, which seem darker than their original color, light colors are diluted with white and look more pastel. As opposed to overpowering it with harsh or dark hues, the light colors enhance your light overall color.

Soft Summer

The following qualities are most likely present in Soft Summers: 

  • Hair: Ashy medium to dark brown
  • Skin: Light to dark brown skin with neutral undertones
  • Eyes: Gray, blue, and hazel eyes

Cool Summer

The following qualities are most likely present in Cool Summers: 

  • Hair: Ashy Brown, medium to dark
  • Skin: The tones of skin vary from light beige to dark brown and have a cool undertone.
  • Eyes: Blue or gray eyes

Cool seasons (Summer or Winter) depend more on the overall undertone of these three factors than on the contrast or lack of contrast between skin, hair, and eye color. Their complexion, hair, and eyes will all have a chilly or blue undertone if it is a cool season. A medium tone of the colors in your season is ideal to contrast and complement your undertones. Pastel or light-colored hues are not appealing on cool-season types. Avoid warm tones, but do not be afraid to explore slightly deeper colors than what is on your palette.
