Seasonal Color Analysis Contradictions: Finding your personal colors
I am confused with what group I belong to in the seasonal color analysis.
My wrist veins are a green-blue mix. However, I seem to look better in gold. Also, I look better in ivory as opposed to white. However, I am not an Autumn...
By the same token, I am not a Winter... Where do I fit?
I look better in red as opposed to orange; yet, I look better in brown as opposed to black. I get many compliments when I wear purple or lavender. Too many contradictions.
I have olive skin, salt and pepper hair (dark brown in youth, with no highlights), have brown eyes with a perfectly oval face.
Help. Any suggestions?
I don't see any contradictions :) Most of the colors you mentioned you look good in are a part of the Autumn palette.
Aging can affect your personal colorings, making your overall complexion look cooler. This can explain why your veins might appear bluish in color. The older we get the cooler our hair, skin and eyes become.
Have you read my article on the FAQ's of seasonal color analysis? If you scroll further down the page you'll see a Flow Color Chart. Just like this one:
This chart takes into account that you may have color characteristics from more than one season. And according to your description it sounds like you're a Deep
Autumn leaning a bit towards Deep Winter. Both groups share the same "deep and rich" characteristics hence the name.
This explains why you seem to look better in red than orange. However you should also take the undertone of the color into account. Tomato red, deep red and clear red are examples of warmer red tones which look good on Autumn
and some Spring
colored women. On the other hand bluish reds such as blue red, burgundy and true red look best on Summer
Either way, you'll suit some of the colors from your opposite flow chart group (for example Deep Winter).
Hope this helps! :)
