Bonus Color Analysis Training

for use with my Face Flash Cards

4-Season Color Wheel Concept

Specifically for those who bought my PYW Face Flash Cards, here is some additional training plus tips and tricks to be able to use the cards for the standard 4-Season Color System, the 12-Season System, as well as my standard ColorBreeze System.  Additionally, I provide training to find the more rare seasons in my most advanced "ColorBreeze Complete" System.

4-Season Color System

If you only need to find a person's main season, or if you just use the 4-season system, simply use Cards 1-22.

Determine her/his dominant undertone and then find his/her main season.
Remember that both colors may not be their best, or both colors look good on them, but one should be better than the other.

Hint: when both colors seem to be flattering, this often signifies the client may be a blended temperature season. But since you are only looking for a main season, study the face for one that seems better (or less worse) than the other.

12-Season System

The 12-Season system is the most common "advanced" system. It is the bedrock of my ColorBreeze System, as well. But if you only use the 12 season system, you can get rid of most of the "soft" test colors in the Face Flash Cards. 

Do the following:
Find the client's main season using cards 1-22.

When testing sub-season colors, simply ignore the following "soft" test colors (you can remove the cards and just set them aside. 

  • Winters: #26 Blue Velvet, #30 Smokey Magenta, #34 Blue Grass
  • Summers: #38 Storm Cloud, #42 Wood Rose, #46 Spruce Green
  • Springs: #50 Butter Yellow, #54 Soft Green, #58 Apricot
  • Autumns: #60 Tiger Eye, #64 Peach, #68 Grey-green

Suggestion: if you are just using the 12 season system, that's fine. However, I do feel over time, you will start to find a range of soft season values. This means that you will find there simply is not one Soft Autumn and one Soft anymore.

Learning about the ColorBreeze System will help you find more categories for your clients or yourself.

For example, many people who are labeled Deep Autumns in the 12-season system are actually one of the deeper Soft Autumns, and this may make sense as to why, for example, a Deep Autumn may feel the colors are too dark for her. But the traditional Soft Autumn is too pale for her.

Both women above are Soft Autumns. The one on the left is the lighter soft autumn and the one of the right is a deeper soft autumn in the ColorBreeze System.
