I've been making word clouds out of the color names found on my seasonal makeup lists.
They're interesting to look at, because they help you see which colors are key in a season's makeup palette.
Like the other 11 makeup lists, Light Spring's list has hundreds and hundreds of products. Among all Light Spring cosmetic products, here are the color names that occur most frequently:
If you compare this word cloud to the Bright Spring cloud from a few weeks ago, you'll notice that both seasons prominently feature "coral" and "pink" -- but a key difference is that Light Spring has many more products called "brown." That reflects the fact that Light Springs have a few great browns, while brown is mostly a non-starter for Bright Spring.
It's not common to meet women of color who fall into the Light seasons, but Alicia Keys is one such, I believe. She looks her most natural in Light Spring's delicate, light, pure and warm colors.
If you think you might be a Light Spring, but you're not sure, try the affordable at-home draping cards. When you know your season, you save a lot of time and money. :-)
In last week's post, I shared my Bright Spring makeup list word cloud. This week, I want to show you the word cloud I made for Dark Winter.
The Dark Winter makeup list has hundreds of cosmetics that have been matched to color-accurate Dark Winter fans.
As you page through the list, you'll notice that certain color words pop up again and again. Here are the colors words you'll find most frequently on the Dark Winter list:
"Plum" is the clear winner, huh? Dark Winters are indeed all about the plums. Dark Winter makeup is cool-toned, rather saturated, and generally pretty dark (as you'd imagine!)
Of course, on a Dark Winter, these colors don't look dark -- they look exactly right.
If you don't yet own a Dark Winter makeup list, you might still get lucky at the drugstore if you focus on cosmetics with words like "plum," "wine" and "burgundy" in title.
And if you're not sure what your color season is, consider trying the affordable at-home draping cards. When you know your color season, you save a ton of time and money because you buy the right makeup every time. :-)
Each of my 12 seasonal makeup lists features hundreds of individual products that have been matched to color-accurate palettes.
I thought it would be fun and instructive to create a word cloud for some of the makeup lists, using all the words from the list that are color names.
Here's the word cloud for the Bright Spring makeup list:
If you don't yet own a Bright Spring makeup list, seacrhing for cosmetics with these words in the title might help you increase the odds of choosing a product that will work for your Bright Spring face.
Notice that "pink" and "coral" are the two most frequently occuring color words in the names of Bright Spring cosmetics. Pinks (both cool and warm) and orangey-pinks are so important for Bright Spring.
Bright Spring makeup colors are pure, warm-toned, and generally not very dark. (Thought Bright Spring can wear black, particularly as a liner or mascara, other colors on her face tend to be on the lighter side.)
In your correct seasonal makeup, you'll look like the most gorgeous version of yourself.
