This is where I do a brief rundown of why I chose a certain season for certain images I created via artificial intelligence, I call my ColorBreeze Art.
Instead of just labeling the person, I will add a brief explanation of my reasoning, or a Micro Color Analysis.
My Facebook followers are excellent at analyzing people. They usually agree with my assessment, or are very close (main season, dominant trait, sister season, etc.)
This Micro Color Analysis above was pretty easy. I labeled this woman a Smokey Soft Autumn with her olive green eyes and her rather neutral brown hair color.
Why not a Dusty Soft Autumn, as some suggested?
Honestly, she could go either way, though generally, most Dusty Autumns have blue or grey eyes (not always, though). I see many people like her who are not very dark yet not very light. They are pretty much right in the middle of those soft autumn seasons. I have some rules on how to decide when and where to place these middle-of-the-road, but it's a little more complex for a short post. I will go into analysis tips and trips in my upcoming training program that I working on.
But for this micro analysis, I will just say that I feel the Smokey Soft Autumn is the best fit for her. I am glad to see most of you agree. Thanks for your input!
My first Micro Color Analysis example is a Dusty Soft Spring male.
I recently posted him on my FaceBook page asking for readers' input as to what they thought his season is.
Most guessed him correctly as a warm season, either Spring or light soft Autumn. Some guess guessed Summer, and I could see why. His blue eyes do look summery.
These two traits – warm skin and hair but summery eyes – are key when debating between two seasons in my ColorBreeze System.
While one of the lightest Soft Autumns isn't inconceivable, I feel he belongs in the lightest of the 4 general seasons, which is Spring.
The two Springs which flow into Summer are the Light Springs and the Dusty Soft Springs. So these are the two options narrowed down the possibilities.
FYI: many true Light Spring start out very light blonde but they get darker as they get older. Actor Brad Pitt is a good example; singer Keith Urban is another. But here is a good question to ponder: if they don’t lighten their anymore, opting to keep their currently darker blonde or lighter brown hair, are they still the lightest Spring?
I would say no.
And the slightly heavier hair does add to weight to them. All of these differences are very subtle. Would the Light Spring palette work for him? Sure. However, because of the slightly heavier look, I chose the Dusty Soft Spring season for him.
Stay tuned for more Micro Color Analyses
