Autum Winter Summer Spring Do you know what season your skintone, hair and eyes are? I am a Winter person myself with my dark hair and pale skin. I suit vivid colors like electric blue powerfull purples true reds and pure white and siver. It is pretty amazing how colors from your season will look natually good on you from your makeup and clothes and your even your hair colour. What season do you fall into, and which of the four season's do you prefer? I am a typical Winter and i am not too keen on bright sunlight or hot weather. I suit some Autum colors and well as cool tones.
Candy, how do u find out what season you are??? I'd like to know too Reija

I am definetly a Fall/Autumn, I love the warm earthy colors and they seem to suit me best because of my hazel eyes and medium skin. I purposely stay away from anything bright or pastel.

Autum Autumns are well know from their drama and intensity. You will look good in shades of the autum landscape, warm greens gold and rust. Your best neutreal shades are warm golden brown camel or olive green. Does you hair have golden or red tones? Do you have medium to dark eyes? Is your hair dark to medium dark? If yes your an Autum. Winter Winters are profound intense and precise. You look best in strong vivid shades with blue undertones such as red royal blue and teal green. Your best neutrals are black and navy. Is your hair solid silver or dark without golden highlights? Do you have dark eyes? If yes your a Winter. Spring Springs are radiant and sensitive. You look best in shades of teal, salmon and periwinkle. Your best neutrals are golden brown or camel and you shine in neutrals. Does your hair have golden or red tones? Do you have clear,light to medium eyes? Is your hair medium to light? If yes you are a summer. If you are none of the above then you are a summer. Summer Summers are delicate and translusant. You look best in all of the coolest shades of pink, mauve and slate blue. Your best neutrals are charcoal and greyed navy.
I fit somewhere in the Spring/Autumn palette - my coloring is soft and muted, with undertones that are flattered with muted neutral to warm colors. Bright colors look garish on me and strong, dark shades make me look tired. My best (muted) colors are khaki, camel, mint, soft turquoise, olive, moss, all soft browns and warm pinks.
Reija my first choice for you was Spring, i can really see it in you. HarleyMom, i agree with you about the shocking pink, it's a gorgeous colour! What about Laura and drive-it-to-me,what do you think your season's are? Its good to know what colors will suit you.You can choose clothes and makeup in your shades,you will look and feel great! Colour is fun and flattering.
Sorry Candy, i haven't been on MuT in the past few days so only saw this now! I still don't know what i am. I don't have blue or pink undertones so that rules out Winter & Summer. I don't have golden or red tones in my hair so i'm assuming that rules out Autumn & spring.. I'll just have to invent a new season especially for me! Just kidding! You can't really judge by my avatar because that was taken by a camera phone & the lighting was awful.

Im a Winter person as my skin glows in Winter and i suit all the colours with my complexion and hair but i was born in August. I like to wear bright red and cobalt blue and dont feel myself in brown or dark colours. I have the same colouring as Sigourney Weaver so if anyone can tell me which colours i could try then please do.


Hello Candy !

I love winter, not only because I was born in february, but because I love the sun in winter, I love when the weather is cold and sunny
. I'm allergic to the sun so in summer I'm sad. I have dark hair (one metre long!) and really pale skin, I love to wear in black or dark red (bordeaux). I have celtic roots and I vickings ancestors, I come from the northern Europe, that could explain why I'm so pale and why I love cold temperatures
