Steps to follow to choose colors

Steps 1)

: Colors are based on seasons and a persons skin tone. There are basically two characteristics that one can categorise colors in a season’s palette.

They are the warm or cool and clear or pale colors. If a person’s skin tone is clear and warm then he/she is “spring” and if a person’s skin tone is clear and cool then he/she is “winter”, warm and pale is “autumn” and cool and pale is “summer”.

Step 2)

: People with warm skin tones have yellow understones whereas people with fairer skin tone have blue undertones. It is quite difficult to see these undertones as they are very subtle. People with golden skin tone are warm and people with blue undertones have reddish cheeks.

Step 3)

: If your skin tone is clear then there is an obvious distinction between your skin, eyes and hair. If your skin tone is pale then it would be less noticeable and you may have an ash color skin tone.

Step 4)

: It’s good to know which colors are in the season’s palette. The above information will help you know which color suits you if you can match your skin tone. Say if you are “spring” then warm colors and clear colors will suit.

If you are “winter” then cool and clear colors like black, navy blue and white go well. People who are “autumn” can wear warm and pale colors like olive green and “summers” suit them the most with burgundy or any pastel shades.

Step 5)

: People can also wear colors from other palettes with characteristics that are common and match their own season’s palette. Since there are four season’s, you can match and see which season would suit you. For someone who is warm and clear would be a spring-winter.
