Your Unique Colors

Have you ever wondered why that pink lipstick never looked good on you? Or maybe why that concealer "was" your color but looked orange? Well I am here to tell you what your colors are and how to get started on the right makeup instead of things that don't look good on you. I got this stuff out of a book called Color me beautiful, and if you are interested in a really good adventure on what types of clothes, colors, and styles fits you, this is the place. E-mail me if you want to know more. I took the some stuff out of the makeup section of this text, so you will be thoroughly informed.

Step 1: Your color history

>Select the group of colors that you feel is most flattering to you, in general in your makeup. You will intuitively know which is best for you. Ask yourself "Which group is best?" or if you prefer "Which have I gotten the most compliments on in my life?"

Now then, after you have chosen which one(s), click on which season you've chosen below to be taken to a place where you can learn which makeup colors are best for you! Can't decide? Click

If you can't decide which season you look best in, you have a couple options. The thing you can do, is to go back up there and choose two that you feel are best. This is because when you click the colored buttons, it takes you to a place that helps you make sure you are that season.

The second step:

If you're deciding between

Winter and Autumn, ask: Am I better in navy, pure white, and just generally "sharper," "clearer" colors (winter), or brown, pumpkin, and gold (Autumn)? Be careful, some brown-eyed Winters think they are Autumns. Brown is boring on a winter, exciting on an Autumn. Ask your friends if you can't decide
Winter and Summer, ask: Do I look good in pastels, like powder pink, lavender, and powder blue (summer), or do I need darker or brighter colors because pastels make me look washed out (winter)?
Winter and Spring, ask: Am I really terrific in ivory and golden browns (Spring), or am I better in navy, pure white, and darker colors (Winter)?
Summer and Autumn, ask: Am I great in pastel blues and pinks, but not good in pumpkin and brown(Summer), or is it the other way around (Autumn)?
Summer and Spring, ask:Which do I wear better, buff, yellowish green, peachy pinks, and golden browns (Spring), or blue-greens, blue-pinks, and burgundy (Summer)?
Spring and Autumn, ask:Can I wear muted colors like orange and moss green or very dark brown (Autumn), or am I better in clear colors like soft blue, light gold, peach, and golden brown (Spring). If neither seems right try Summer.


Now then, here we are at the buttons. Click on your chosen season

Spring


>Ahh, flowers and pink. You are a spring, and spring has wonderful colors that are subtle and pretty. But to make sure you are a spring, we must attempt to analyze. Here are the "mosts" for you to examine.

Skin
Most springs have a golden undertone. If you don't know what that means, it's more like creamy ivory, peachy pink, or peachy beige. Some springs have freckles, and others have skin that's as clear as glass, either way they are most likely to have rosy cheeks.

Hair
Spring's hair is golden blonde, strawberry, red, or golden brown. Ash-tone hair is not spring. Their hair often darkens with age.

Eyes
Their eyes are usually blue, green, or aqua. Some have very clear eyes, and others have a golden cluster surrounding the pupil.
--- ---- ------
Now then, are you sure you are a spring?


Winter

Brr! It's winter for you gals. I must add in, that I am a winter! YAAAY. Winters need the bold, straight colors. There are more Winters in the world than any other skin type! Well, here we go for the "mosts."

Skin
Winters do not have a pink undertone in their skin. This means that their cheeks are not usually pink, and they have a "blue" undertone. Most have beige skin, ranging from light to dark.

Hair
Most winters have dark hair, even though some might have been white-blond at birth. Brunette winters have hair color ranging from light brown to dark charcoal brown. There are not many blonde winters.

Eyes
The Winter's eyes are most often a deep color. They may be red brown, brown, hazel, gray. The blue or green eyed Winter often has white flecks in the iris.

Are you sure you are a winter?


Autumn

Look at all those leaves! Brown and red, purple and orange! Look, and you are a winter. Let's check to see if you really are.

Skin
Look for the golden undertone. They have seemingly orangish skin, rather than the blue of a winter or pink of a spring. Many Autumns are pale or sallow and especially need a rouge to come alive.

Hair
Autumn can be golden blonde as a child, usually darkening as she matures. Many have red or brown hair. The brown hair usually has a gold or metallic red cast.

Eyes
Most have brown or green eyes. Their brown eyes are dark to topaz, and their green eyes often sport gold or brown flecks in the iris.

Are you sure you are an Autumn?


Summer

Pools and flowers, yay. Here you are, at Summerville. We are looking to find your color. Look at these "mosts" and see if you are truly a summer.

Skin
Summers are cool, and so they have a bluish undertone. Summers have visual pink in their skin. Some are very fair and had blond hair when they were born which turns to light brown as they mature. Others have very pink skin, with high color. They may be sallow on their arms, but pink in the cheeks.

Hair
As a child, summer is most often blond. As she matures, her hair darkens to a "mousy" color. A summer woman truly benefits from wearing her colors, it makes her face light up.

Eyes
Summers have blue, green, aqua, or soft hazel eyes. Summer eyes often look cloudy inside the iris.

Are you sure you are a summer?


I am a spring

Well, you have gotten here, aren't you proud? With spring, we have delicate, pretty colors that cannot be worn by the Autumn with the grace and class that you have. :::applause::::.

Hmm..as I was just typing this I was wondering why they recomended for people to have the same eyecolor as eyeshadow. Choose around, though, because this is ONE book. Just beware of your "guidelines."

Lipstick Colors: peach, coral, pink, red, and other clear and not too dark colors.
Avoid Lipstick colors: brown, black, purple

Rouge: warm pink, clear peach, coral

Foundation: a "yellow" base. Usually a light to dark peach color, or if you are very fair, a pure ivory. When you are shopping for foundation, most warm foundations are called: "natural," "ivory," "peach," "golden," or "copper."

Soo....? Wear your lipsticks without dark colors. Keep your eyes light and not closed in. Wear mascara without clumps (ewww). If you need to wear a brown lipstick, stick with golden-brown. Red will need to be clear, with no blue undertones. Don't wear burgundy or black on your lips! If you're feeling dancy, get some nice blue-violet on your lids.

Have fun!

Note: If you have deep set eyes (under eye circles, or not much of your lid shows, don't go very dark on these or your eyeliner, and for eyeliner don't make it thick and go all the way around your eye because it looks bad

Lipstick colors:burgundy, blue-reds, plum, clear red, ash brown
Avoid: orangish colors, red-browns, straight brown.

Rouge: rose, light burgundy

Foundation: it's important to stick to a foundation with a "rose undertone." If you have light skin and you pick a foundation that's called "natural beige," you will end up looking sallow. Instead, ask the person at the desk for a "cool" color for your skin color.

Soooo...?
Pshaw! don't be so rude! Just kiddin. All that means that you:
A Don't wear colors like "tomato" and ESPECIALLY TAN.
B) Orange and most yellows, don't wear them on those lids.
C)Navy is a good color for you. hint hint, we're talkin eyeliner!
D)So is burgundy. Go all out of those lips!
E)Purple is good too, just don't wear violet. Also bluish red is nice.
Have oodles fo fun! Back to

Okay okay! Don't use grayish colors on your eyes. All sorts of browns will work for you though. Try golden brown, or just plain brown for eyeliner. Don't wear pink lipstick, but tomato or a lighter brown will work. Teal will work if you want to go crazy with eyeliner or mascara. Autumn colors just mean earthy tones, and stick with them. Have fun!! back to
