Light Spring Makeup Word Cloud
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. :-)

Love the peaches & peachy-pinks of this season :) (Only they're too light for me.) But I didn't know that brown lipstick suits any Spring? I have the "old" CMB book (from my mother) and it categorically states that brown lipstick does not suit a Spring ;)

It's a makeup word cloud, not just a lipstick word cloud, so maybe the brown comes from liners and shadows, etc...

Yes, that's exactly right!

Oh, so it is, I don't know why I took it to be just about lipsticks ;-) Maybe because for me, it's the most visible part of makeup, or one of the most visible. (And on top of the post one can just see the lippie list ;-))

Hi, Rachel! I was just about to give up on color analysis until I saw this article! I'm a biracial African-American and I wear the EXACT same colors as Alicia Keys. I'm warm to warm-neutral undertone and medium-tan, nearly medium-deep. (My foundation descriptions are: deep tan-beige w/ yellow undertone, light golden brown w/ yellow-peach undertone, and medium peach). I've always considered Alicia Keys as my closest color "twin"- she is the only celebrity I know who wears the EXACT same colors as me, in every aspect. But everyone else had her listed as a Deep Autumn/Deep Winter! Which defeats the whole reason I started looking into color analysis... because I've always known I look TERRIBLE in deep colors! Thank you for posting about this; putting the reality of ethnicity back into color analysis! Ethnic people with deeper, warm, brown-black hair & eyes can have the same level of warmth & low contrast (low-contrast relative to their race especially) as the stereotypical Light Spring, and therefore only suit shades as fresh & warm as the ones found in LSp.

Oh and I just bought Becca Ultimate Complexion Creme in the shade "Bamboo"- a perfect match! Which rarely happens for me! I'll be here patiently (and excitedly!) awaiting your reply :) Thanks again!

I'm so happy I've been helpful to you. :-)) I try to keep color analysis multi-ethnic because so often it's whitewashed." To answer your questions:

Hi Rachel! Thanks for the indepth reply, that helps me alot! As for cosmetics, what are some known LSp makeup products that would suit deeper end LSp? It's hard to tell. Though popsicle-y colors do clear my skin alot, I'm looking for more of an everyday pink-nude lip. I'm afraid Mac Creme Cup will be a bit too light for everyday. I'm looking for something similar to this (https://tinyurl.com/y9ukwpvs) or this (https://tinyurl.com/ybeerzqy). And it'd be amazing if you know of any LSp lippies that push this far into deeper end (https://tinyurl.com/y6wym7nk)!
