    Summer True: This trip through Photoshop taught me that if I pick the undertone of the skin (see them in RTYNC, the book pictured in the right column, they’re not on this website), adjust the saturation as appropriate for the Season, and select the lightest colour possible, I get the Season’s ‘white’. True Summer’s began as clean cobalt type blue and moderate saturation.  Many with darker hair tones could go darker in their ‘black’ above, but not too dark. The colour above hopefully represents everyone, knowing that darker tones are available once colour pigments like blue, green, red, and so on, are added.  Light: Vanilla ice cream. There is a grey that goes darker than what’s shown but it is more blue-looking than this grey. Soft: Campfire smoke. And smoke blocks light, so the whole palette is a little smoked, muting colours. Smoke also reduces transparency. Earrings (like these ) made of glass smoked with your palette colours are simply beautiful. Medium pewter makes a great black. —–

Winter True: Snow so white, it looks a little blue next to any other white. And black. Bright: Polar bear, maybe with the slightest yellow peach tint… polar bear at sunrise. Adding that my eye loves Bright Winter in crisp white even better than black. For me, these are the ultimate wearers of pure white. And black. Dark: One drop of tar fell in the white paint pot, but barely a trace. You don’t know it’s not pure white unless you hold it next to pure white and even then you’re not sure.

How beautiful is this? Soft white like a cloud is dreamy next to Summer colouring. On a Winter, it looks a little dingy, she needs an almost blued white for the freshest, healthiest complexion. Do you think YinClassic? A delicate mermaid feels like the version of femininity that woman does like no other. Same with a slight trumpet in a skirt?
