Color Seasons: Cool Summer + 24 Hours of Daytona, Race Night, my life

Hey readers! This week's topic is Cool Summer, with some other stuff at the end. The flow season is Winter.

Cool Summer is cool and soft. The Winter influence means they are less light than other Summers. Hair is ash brown.  Eyes are grey, blue or black. Skin is cool or neutral beige. For people of color, blue-black skin can indicate this season. The best colors for include mulberry, soft fuchsia, coral, raspberry, icy pink, pink beige, sea green, pine, periwinkle, light navy, lavender, dusty grape, gray, taupe, khaki, cool browns and rose. Light clear yellow is the only shade these can pull off. The rule is cool, muted pastel tones. Makeup colors for these are gray, cool blues and plum, cool browns, like cocoa and taupe, mint, lavender, soft pink, navy, soft fuchsia, rose, mauve and soft berry. Now for the bad colors.

Warm or overly dark colors are bad for these. Yellow-green, burnt or any orange and warm browns are no good. Black is too dark for these.

I watched the start of the 24 Hours of Daytona. Chip Ganassi's #02 team won and the drivers were Scott Dixon, Jamie McMurray, Kyle Larson and Tony Kanaan.  McMurray and Larson, as well as AJ Allmendinger, who was on another team were the NASCAR representatives in this race.  Other NASCAR drivers played hockey with the Charlotte Checkers for their Race Night. 

And for a slice of my life, my mom's birthday was yesterday. Come back next week for my Clear Winter.

Color Seasons: Cool Winter+ my life

Hey readers! This week, the topic is Cool Winter. The flow season is Summer.

Cool Winter is cool and clear, with dark intensity. There is high contrast between skin and eyes, because that's how Winters are. This is a very common season.   Hair is usually medium or dark ash brown, cool brown, black- brown, blue-black or silver, but can occasionally be white-blond. Skin is rosy beige, cool beige or soft olive. Eyes are soft dark brown or greyish blue or green. Black is a good colors, as are white, icy pink, fuchsia , royal purple, Chinese blue, icy blue  and plum.  True green and red are other colors that work for this season. Think cool intense colors is the rule for these. Raspberry, plum, deep rose, cool pinks and purples, cool grey, icy white, navy, deep blue and black are the best makeup colors. Now for the bad colors.

Warm colors are no good for these. Golden toned colors are bad and so is orange. Warm brown and nude shades are also problem colors for Cool Winters. Warm colors make these look sick or muddy.

There's some stuff in my life I feel like sharing. My dad's birthday was Sunday. I'm supposed to take a Civil Service test Saturday. Come back next week for my Cool Summer overview.

Color Seasons: Light Spring

 Hey readers! This week, the topic is Light Spring. The flow season is Summer.

Light Spring has a light look, as does Light Summer, but the Springs are somewhat warmer and brighter.  They're lower contrast than other Springs, as the Summer influence moderates the warmth and brightness. Spring's been said to be a delicate colored season and that's true for these. Hair is blond, light red or sometimes light golden brown. Eyes are blue, green, light hazel or occasionally a very light brown. The best colors for these are coral, caramel. light moss, ivory, khaki, warm, light grays or pale yellow. Camel, yellow-green, clear aqua and periwinkle also work, just think light warm colors.  Good makeup colors are peach,  some corals, pink or warm, light reds and greens. Brown or navy mascara's better than black for these. Now for what's bad.

Anything too dark or cool is bad for these. Black is no good. Dark brown also looks terrible. Fuchsia and burgundy don't work on Light Springs either. Come back next week for Cool Winter.

Color Seasons: Light Summer + Off Road Racing

Hey readers! This week, the topic is Light Summer. The flow season is Spring.

Light Summer has an overall light look. Contrast is low because of how Summer is. The Spring flow makes the colors a little warmer and brighter than other summers  Hair is often light brown, but some blonds, the ashy or icy ones fall under this. Brown eyes are rare, but any eye color is possible. The best colors for these are light grey, soft white, sky blue, light pink, light lavender and light navy or aqua, light elegant colors or soft, dusky pastels, basically. Light lemon yellow's a color I've seen listed as a Summer color and seems to work for these as well. Makeup colors are silvery, pastel colors, like soft blue, medium gray, teal, plum, light cocoa, light navy grey, perhaps charcoal. Soft plum, raspberry or rose are good lip colors. Now for the bad colors.

Bad colors for these are dark colors. These are aging and black makes a Light Summer disappear. Bright colors are no good. Some blues and reds are overpowering to these.

Now for a little bit of my life. I watched a taped off road race Saturday. I also started taking magnesium, since I have some magnesium deficiency symptoms. Come back next week for Light Spring.
