The Toasted Soft Winter is a Winter that, unlike other Winters, has a muted quality to it. Colors are a mix of 'traditional' winter colors like black, true red, and emerald, but are worn in a way that creates lower contrast than most Winters.

In addition to the traditional winter colors, this season has deep, rich colors like black cherry and toned raspberry. They have a visible warmth to their coloring, usually found in their skin or eyes, but sometimes hair as well.

In the palette are a mix of some lighter soft colors, not usually associated with winter. But paired with the much deeper traditional colors of the palette, this creates a slightly toned down effect.

Wearing colors that are too pale will not be strong enough for your coloring and will wash you out
