It’s hard to make sense of this garment with the aquas and greens of the palette, which begin looking frivolous or childish when in truth, they are stunning and vibrant on a Light Summer. Greens are excellent for getting a sense of what could be rational together.

Being a Light Season means lighter makeup than other Seasons. Light is not near-white in this context. Too pale is draining and chalky.

The genius of the palette is that pairing dark colours achieves medium-dark because your colours are measured to be within your value range, the comparison being with a full black to white scale.

You might think that Light Spring is often confused with Soft Autumn, but in fact, it is Light Summer. The Light Summer colouring is muted enough to enjoy much of what Autumn offers.

Does she look older? Is that a bad thing? All optical effects are a trade-off. A colour analyst could take any redness out of a face, though she would have to jaundice or drain the face to do so.

Ties for the Soft Summer Man

The jeans are light and faded enough to appear gray (neutral). Denim  has many variations, from lighter and more turquoise to darker and a bit violet, like the hat.

The Best Skin Finish on Summer Colouring

The True Summer section applies. There is more warmth here as a definite first warm weekend in May. Outdoor glows are great but controlled. A pale pink gold gloss OR an uplight on the cheeks is plenty. You are a Summer, not a Spring, so restraint is needed. A May picnic isn't the same as the beach in July. As a Neutral Cool colouring, remain cooler than warmer in everything you add.

The most beautiful eye appears to be coming out of a misty lake. Eyeshadows and liners are hazy tan greys, mauve greys, smoky browns, and pewter tones. The eyeliner is not much darker than the eyeshadow. In this Season, liner can distinguish itself by being a different color than the shadow, instead of a darker color.

Every Season has a True note, a higher note, and a lower note. Noise can’t exist without quiet, or light without shade. Soft Summer is Summer at a quieter, lower tempo. In 12 Season Color Analysis, this is the Neutral Season where Summer is beginning to integrate a breath of Autumn.

Nevermind the hair and eyes. We established long ago that they are not used in defining the Season. We look at skin. The person Season is their Season, eyes open or closed.
