In a well-made up face, the eye is the focus attention, not the eye makeup. Neutral colours create the hills and valleys, the backdrop for the intensity, shine, and focus of the eye itself.
Believing in what we think we see, meaning colour matching, is why so many women are paying for less-than-best hair colour and can’t find a lipstick that looks like part of their face.
As a network that prioritizes continued learning, we broadened our skills in many formats, as you’ll see in the pictures. Colour is a dance that shifts, moves, and surprises. We may step in but we may never lead.
Knowing your white might be the biggest payoff to having your colouring analyzed if you happen to be an Autumn, on whom wearing white every day is a series of unfortunate events.
I confess to surrendering shamelessly to Light Spring wedding dress overload. For once, this is the easiest Season to find clothing for.
Soft Summer colouring has more muscle than the other Summer groups. Colours are more solid. Texture is a nice way to communicate this man’s strength and add variety to a monochromatic look.
There is no reason to believe that foundation can be matched by Season, because the final colour is influenced by the overtone, the undertone, the idiosyncrasies of the face, the pH of the skin, and the list goes on for an hour.
First, I needed to have a PCA to experience it for myself and figure out which season I was (I know many of you reading have felt that pull!). Second, I knew that it might be a possible career option for me.
Forest green is too sharp and obviously a cosmetic most of the time. This is a grayer, browner green, for instance, Merle Norman Hazel.
A Light Summer can wear black at times DEPENDING on what the contest is. Her skin likes the saturation and the coolness. If the comparison is with Autumn, her skin might find several things in black to like. Now if the comparison is between black and silver, there may still be good stuff happening in black but less so.
