Which Autumn Category Do I Fit In?

I look good in both warm and deep autumn categories. I have peachy skin and pink cheeks but I have dark auburn hair.

I fit both categories, but not either one completely.

Which one am I?



No one fits into one category only. Myself included; my main group is Deep Autumn but I tend to suit some Deep Winter and Warm Autumn colors based on how pale my skin is (working out, not getting enough sleep, having the flu are some factors that can affect the appearance of your complexion) :)

Those belonging to the Deep Autumn group usually have very deep colored eyes, hair and skin tone (which usually doesn't have any obvious pink or peachy hints of color).

By your description, I suspect you're a Warm Autumn, mainly because of your pink cheeks and auburn hair :) You'll look good in black because of your reddish hair. But since you didn't provide me with your eye color I can not be sure :-)

Hope this helps!

Seasonal Color Analysis: I think I'm a Deep Winter, But My Sewing Teacher Thinks I'm a Summer. Which Is It?

My Favorite Picture of Me : D

My Favorite Picture of Me : D

I found your website on the Google search engine looking up what colors would look good on me. The seasonal color analysis system is fantastic!

(Pic: I removed my yellow lampshade, so my light bulb is only giving off white light I think)

But I'm still confused! and I'm trying so hard to figure out what I am.

I am Asian (a very strange Asian, I think), with black-brown hair, black-brown eyes, and peachy skin. I don't like going into sunlight, so I'm a lot paler than the rest of my family.

I think I have pink, warm undertones because under my wrist looks bluish, therefore, warm pink undertones. And my cheeks are rosy. But aren't pink undertones supposed to be like, cold?

Do light-brown eyes blend or contrast with rosy cheeks? My eyes are usually lighter, but it's winter right now.

So because of my black-brown hair without red/gold highlights, black-brown eyes, and pink undertones, I think I'm a deep winter.

I think dramatic colors like hot pink and yellow and Chinese/periwinkle blue are great on me, whereas earthy/muted colors are boring and plain.

My sewing teacher told me I'm a Summer! Also, a friend (who is interested in fashion) told me I look washed out in very dramatic colors, like red and yellow. And deep winters are supposed to look good in true red and mint lemon yellow!
So if I am really a summer, does that mean I've been wearing really unflattering colors all this time? I was excited to be a deep winter since that meant I was allowed to wear a lot of fun and exciting colors that I like!

I really don't like wearing plain, boorish colors. (I love pure white, but not black) I once tried to wear all earth tones because my same friend said I was too fond of bright colors. After just a few days of it, I splurged on all the brightest colors I could possibly find and became a walking rainbow for weeks. Suffocating my love for bright colors only reawakened it with a new intense energy! Is it that I'm a little bit of both seasons and I can't be too muted or too dramatic?


Gold/Silver Test
I think the silver looks very bland. When I try to concentrate on only my skin, it looks pretty much the same to me.

I love wearing colors like these! When I first read that instead of wearing our favorite colors, we should be wearing colors that complement our skin, hair, and eyes, I thought oh no! I looked more carefully -- when I check to see if it washes me out, it washes me out! When I check to see if it lights up my face, it lights up my face!

Muted Pink w/ White Granny Cardigan Thing
I don't really like it. I noticed I look a lot more tired it! The cardigan was itchy and stuff. It was in my mom's bin of unwanted clothes. XD I couldn't find any muted colors in my closet

Yellow Panda Shirt
I like this shirt, but it makes me look tired I think. I think if I want to wear it, I'd have to be wearing it with other colors too, like a white cardigan.

Yellow Panda Shirt w/ Black&Cyan Sweatshirt
I look tired in this one too. I don't like dark colors very much. I like the bursts of color on it though *not shown*.

Can you tell me which season(s) I am?



I definitely think you are a Deep Autumn flowing towards Deep Winter (more of a 50/50, which explains why some bright colors like for example true red might look too much on your complexion). So yes, you are a little bit of both seasons. This is good news because you'll be able to wear your favorite bright colors :-)

I can see that your hair is more of a black-brown-red, skin is light olive with strong yellow undertones and your eyes dark brown. You also have peachy-pink cheeks which indicate that you're warm (despite that Deep Autumn/Winter don't include peach undertones). Pink usually becomes peach on olive/golden skin tones.

Anyway, these are the common traits of Deep Autumn and at the same time you do have some Deep Winter coloring tendencies (the very black dark hair). I can't see you with other types of colors than from those two palettes because your hair is very dark and you need brighter and deeper colors to compliment it (lighter colors don't hold up your complexion very well).

You're definitely not a Summer because you have warmer and darker colorings compared to a Summers which have pale (almost white), ashy-light hair and lighter eyes. They look good in soft and pinkish colors. The light pink scarf does make you look tired. I really can't see you with many of the Summer colors:

I would think that some of the colors from the Deep Winter Palette would look harsh on your light olive/yellow skin tone, like for example hot pink/fuschia and black. I advise you to focus on deep-warm-and-bright colors instead of the deep-bluish colors. The bright yellow, lime green and navy look really good on you. So does the scarf which has coral-pink in it.

By the way, the gold does brighten up your skin compared to the silver which makes you look more blue. However this test is best done on your face and not your hand/arm :)

Hope this helps! Feel free to comment on this page :-)

What Season Am I?

I have brown hair, green eyes, and fair skin. My coloring is like Sophia Bush. What season would that make me?


I believe you're a Deep Autumn. Sophia Bush has an ivory/very light olive skin tone with dark brown almost black hair (by observing the roots of her hair) and dark hazel/greenish eyes which makes her an Autumn. She looks amazing in dark purple and tomato red.
