Helping Women be the most Beautiful, Inside and Out

What Season are You?

alphonse-mucha-the-four-seasons

One of the great gifts we are born with as humans is that we can see color, unlike most species of animals.  Could you imagine what the world around you would look like if you only saw black and white and shades of gray?  What would a Sunset look like?  Or a Floral Bouquet?  It would be like watching the old Classic Movies (as great as they were for dramatic affect),  life would be a bit drab to say the least.

Anyone remember the movie “Pleasantville”?

Pleasantville The Movie

Pleasantville The Movie

The movie takes you back to the 1950’s, and the beginning of the social and sexual revolution of the 1960’s.  The unique concept in the movie was that the whole world was black and white until someone found “love” (more accurately sex) then they transformed into Technicolor beings that could see the world in a whole new colorful light.  But aside from the underlying racial, religious and political views the film is trying to make, the uniqueness of the special effects was the stark contrast between the colorized and the black and white images.

Color is very important to our lives, though we may not even realize it.

Remember back in the day when hospitals used to look and smell so sterile, with their drab white walls?   Well they finally realized an amazing thing, that people react to color in their surroundings.  Certain colors actually made people  feel better, and seemed to help their healing, and they found the opposite was true as well.  Now when you go to a hospital there are bright pastel colored walls, with live plants, or floral arrangements in the lobby.  They look more like hotels than hospitals!  Now if they could only improve the food that would be great!

What makes someone buy a Red Sports Car?   Why not Brown?  Or White?   The Color Red is associated with an image, a “look at me” color.   But not everyone likes the color red, nor looks good wearing it.  You need to find out what colors are uniquely “YOU”.   When you shop for clothes do you notice that some colors jump out at you, and others you don’t even take a second look at?   What makes you choose one color over another?

Do you know what colors look best on you?  What colors make you look and feel good?

Choosing the right colors can improve your perception of yourself and how others see you.

The best color consultant is nature itself.

There are four seasons in nature, and each season is enhanced with distinctly different and vibrant color combinations.

But what season are YOU?

Your specific skin tone, hair and eye color are the determining factors in understanding what Season you are.

Here is a Four Seasons Color Chart

Four Seasons Color Chart

Four Seasons Color Chart

Autumn: Radiates in warm, rich colors of fall, with golden undertones.

Spring: Blossoms in delicate pastel colors, with warm yellow undertones.

Winter: Sparkles in vivid, clear primary colors, and cool, icy colors, with blue undertones.
Summer: Glows in pastels, the soft colors of the sky and sea, with blue undertones.
Have you ever ran into a friend or co-worker one day, and noticed they look fabulous, but the next day they looked sickly?   When you ask if they are ok, they say they are fine.
But you know there is something that is just not right.  Could it be they were wearing the wrong color that day?
Your makeup, your clothing and your hair color should match and complement your season, or you will look washed out and pale.

Here is an example of right and wrong colors:

Which picture looks better?

The picture on the left makes her look washed out, the colors are not right for her skin tone and hair color.

In the picture on the right she looks more vibrant because she is wearing the right colors for her season.

She is a Summer.

If you are not sure what Season you are, next time you go shopping find a plain color blouse that comes in at least four different colors from the charts above.  All you need is one color from each season to try, you should be able to tell right away what looks good and what doesn’t.  If it is hard for you to determine then bring a friend, they will usually be honest and tell what they think.

Also ever notice that eye makeup, hair colors and lipsticks come in warm and cool colors?   That is because they fit in the categories of Warm i.e. Autumn & Spring, or Cool i.e. Winter & Summer.  So make sure to use the correct shades for your season to look your best.  For more information on makeup check out my article on Makeup your Mind.

Match your wardrobe to your Season and you’ll be amazed at the compliments you’ll receive on how fabulous you look (no matter what you’re wearing), because choosing the right colors will enhance your beauty and your life.

Comments on: "What Season are You?" (6)

  1. Cool site I loved reading your info

  2. I really enjoyed your blog on “What Season Are You?”. I agree sometimes as women we overlook what makes us look good or beautiful and aim for what’s in style. There have been countless times I have gone to work or to the store and have witnessed these fashion mishaps…

    Your blog brings up some really “Great Points”.

    1. If we as women look at what’s in fashion and don’t consider if it is flattering we as women could aim for the wrong “look at me” factor. It’s a good thing that I am fortunate to have a family fool of women who will tell me if I look foolish.

    2. You are right bringing along an honest friend or family member when making a decision is so important. Key word honest friend or family member not just someone who will tell us we look good because they don’t want to hurt our feelings.

    Now that I think about it I think some men would definitely benefit from reading your blog as well.

    Thanks for the insight! I would love to learn more about your courses that you will be offering.
