I really want to buy the makeup list and the new cards but I am struggling to figure out if I am a dark winter or dark autumn. I know for sure I am a neutral and that my best color is burgundy.
I am leaning towards dark winter based on the great contrast between my light skin and my dark hair. But what keeps bugging me is that I am Mexican and when I was young I tanned very easily and my hair was not dark brown but a regular brown. There wasn't as much contrast between my hair and skin.
I don't go out in the sun at all now so my skin is light and my hair is dark. I would truly appreciate it if you could tell me a way to find out if I'm dark winter or autumn. Thank you!
You could be true autumn. She did a post about what colors look best on different seasons.She said in this post that if you look best in burgundy then you are a true autumn. http://www.truth-is-beauty.com/blog/seasonal-deal-breakers
Just scroll down until you see burgundy.
Hi, Diane. What I actually meant was that if burgundy *isn't* flattering, True Autumn must be ruled out I apologize if that's confusing!
Don't worry at about what season your apparent hair, eye, and skin colors seem to suggest. Just focus on which colors look best on you.
If you're certain you're either a Dark Autumn or a Dark Winter, here are a few colors that can help you sort it out:
- bright tomato red (an orangey-red) will be great on DA, but not on DW.
- terra cotta and pumpkin orange are also great on DA, but not on DW.
- pure black with pure white is better on a DW than on a DA. Cream with brown-black is better on a DA than on a DW. (If you're a DA, ivory and cream and oyster are much better on you than pure white.)
