Color Seasons: Soft Summer

Hey readers! Today, I'll tell you about Soft Summer. The flow season is Autumn.

Soft Summer is muted and cool, but less cool than other Summers. Like Soft Autumn, these are neutral colored with low contrast because that's how the Soft seasons are. The Autumn flow means this season's colors are the most faded and this influence is why the colors are darker and less cool than other Summers. Hair is dark blond, beige or even brown and is said to look mousey. Eyes are gray, muted blue or sometimes a soft hazel. Pastel, grayed and monochrome low contrast colors are the best kind for these.  Dusty colors, as well as rose brown or light navy are some others mentioned as good Soft Summer colors. Soft white has been mentioned as a Summer color. Dusty pinks and silvers are good makeup colors, as are charcoal and navy blue for eye makeup. Just think nothing too dark, bright or warm. Now for the bad colors.

The previously mentioned dark, bright or warm colors are bad for all sorts of reasons. Bright colors look out of place on these. They look awful! Brown creates a muddy look. Black is too harsh. High contrast colors are overpowering and warm colors just aren't the best for these. Come back next week for my version of Light Summer.

Color Seasons: Soft Autumn

Hey readers! Today I'll tell you about Soft Autumn. The flow season is summer.

Soft Autumn is a warm, but less so than other autumns and muted coloring. The coloring is described as neutral, so low contrast colors are good for these. Hair is mousey, eyes are medium hued and skin tone is warm but almost neutral, soft and low contrast. Eyes are muddy green, light brown or perhaps even grayish. Dark mosey blond, brown and strawberry blond are common hair colors in this season.  Good colors for these are khaki, buttermilk, light gray, salmon, light peach, light moss or perhaps even light lemon yellow are good colors for these. Olive green's another Soft Autumn color. Salmon, mahogany, rust, as well as peaches and browns and for eyes, warm cocoa, purple and green (moss green in particular) are good makeup colors. Metallic colors also work for these. Anything soft, delicate and not super warm or cool's the thing in this palette. Now for the bad colors.

Some colors make Soft Autumns disappear or just don't go with the coloring. Dark colors are bad, as these are what causes disappearing. Bright colors are overpowering, so they cause a clownish look when used as makeup. Orange, though an Autumn color is too warm, apparently, for this palette. Come back next week for Soft Summer.

Color Seasons: Warm Spring

Hey readers! Today, I'll tell you about Warm Spring. The flow season for this is Autumn.

Warm Spring is warm, but lighter than Warm Autumn. Hair is golden brown, strawberry or golden blond, light auburn or copper color. Skin is peachy, creamy, golden beige and they may have freckles. Eyes can be golden green or brown, hazel or warm turquoise. The best colors for these are coral. salmon, apricot, peach and gold. Other good colors are  light warm brown or green, light navy or periwinkle and bright warm  colors, like lime green or bright yellow. The best makeup colors warm brown, camel, copper, bronze, moss or warm purple. Golden yellow, cream, apricot, gold, warm green or teal, soft cinnamon, mango, poppy red and light warm pink also work. Think warm and light to know what's best for someone of this coloring. Now, onto the bad.

What's bad for these is anything dark or cool. Black is bad, as are cool blues. Come back next week for my Soft Autumn description.

Color Seasons: Warm Autumn+ NASCAR Champion's Week

Hey readers! Today, I'll tell you about Warm Autumn. The blend season for this is Spring, because both are warm.

Warm Autumn means everything is warm, hair, skin and eyes. The Warm Autumn's best colors are red, orange, brown and nutmeg. Khaki, mustard, olive green and yellow gold are also good, as are Warm Spring's warmest colors.  Warm is key for these people. Think of autumn leaves, as these colors are Warm Autumn's colors. Red or reddish brown hair and strawberry blond hair are the most common colors, but a woman of color can have darker hair and still be Warm Autumn, if she has truly golden tones. Eyes are amber, topaz, golden brown, very warm chocolate brown, dark hazel or perhaps warm green. Green eyed women in this palette can wear deep warm purple eye makeup. Warm is key for makeup, like golden tones, warm green or brown, as well as copper and teal. Now for the bad colors for a warm autumn.

Anything too cool or not medium hued is bad for a Warm Autumn. Fuchsia and pastel colors are bad. Pure black and pure white make them look sick.

Last week was NASCAR Champion's Week. The events were Fanfest, NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Awards  , NASCAR Victory Lap, NASCAR After the Lap and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series  The Chasers, champion and Rookie of the Year were honored. Stay tuned for my version of Warm Spring.

Color Seasons: Deep Autumn

Hey readers! Today I'll tell you about Deep Autumn. I could be some kind of Autumn because of my hair. My eye color also fits the Autumn range. In my life story, I mentioned olive skin, which can be Autumn or Winter. Ruddiness, which I may have some of because of my hands, occurs more often in warm seasons, I read. I also have a brown shirt that look pretty on me.

Deep Autumn is deep and warm.  Like Deep Winter, the hair and eyes are dark, but are warmer than winter. Skin has a warm undertone and is black, olive, bronze, ivory or golden beige. Autumn colors are rich and muted, but Deep Autumn flows into Winter so the colors are less muted than other Autumns. A Deep Autumn can wear some Winter colors, like black or Chinese blue, but others are too cool or bright. If someone like this wears black, the other colors need to be warm because otherwise it's too cool even though the person's coloring's dark enough.  Muted pewter, burnt orange, coffee green, turquoise, mustard, lime green, true red, ivory and cream are some good colors for these people. Warm purple can work as well. Makeup colors for these people are striking, bold and warm or neutral colors. Warm shades of red and orange, salmon, camel, coffee, anything with a yellow or golden tone, warm metallic, dark green or perhaps navy are the best makeup colors for this season.  Ivory and light gold are good colors, too. Now that the good's been covered, it's time to turn to the bad.

Here the bad list for this season. Pastels make Deep Autumns look sick. Silver, pure white and cool pinks are no good for this season. Light colors are bad choices, as they lead to a washed out look. Dusty tones do nothing for this season, either. Come back next week for my version of Warm Autumn.
