To see what I mean, click HERE to see examples of True Summers. Even though summers are typically thought of as blondes with fair skin. However, this is not so. You will see examples of so many women who do not fit within that stereotype.
The color palette of a True Summer is cool and muted. Here are two examples:
This is a more detailed palette including more of the colors.
Discovering that I was a True Summer has been a very exciting experience. I can also see where I was confused on my season. Winter shades are very similar to the shades above, but have a greater depth to them. I often felt smothered with some of the colors from the Dark Winter palette, but with the Summer shades, I feel more natural.
Here are some shots of me (old and new) in True Summer colors. Note that the background colors in the last two images are also from the palette.
Some of my most worn colors from this palette are navy, dusty lavender, turquoise, and cool red.
Makeup for True Summers are seen on this chart, although cool red can be added for lips.
The most prominent colors here are taupe, beige, raspberry, and dusty blue. These colors compliment your skin's coolness.
I am very pleased with finding my true colors and I encourage you to do the same. Finding what colors suit you best is the key to looking and feeling your best.
