Color analysis spring season

If you're a Spring,
you probably have:

  • Low level of contrast between hair, skin and eye color. However you may also have dark hair, pale skin but with clear eyes
  • Clear, warm and golden undertone to your overall coloring. If your skin appears pink, it's more likely a warm pink (think peach). Some cool undertones may exist but is much less than the warmth
  • Earth and summer tone quality to your eyes, ranging from turquoise blue to hazel and sparkly light brown
  • Your hair is between a dark to medium brown to coppery red, strawberry, deep golden to light blonde hair. If your hair is dark it most likely has golden or reddish highlights
  • If you're a woman of color with dark hair, you probably have clear and lighter eyes than what's typical in your ethnicity (eg. Turquoise blue, green, topaz, light brown, hazel)
