Annie is an Autumn. Although she wears a lot of blacks, she stated she feels sexy/beautiful in burgundies and maroons which are classic Autumn colors. I would bet a lot of the cool compliments she has gotten with the blues and greens are due to the fact that they matched her beautiful eye color. Annie submitted photos in more cooler colors than warmer. I have some ideas of different warm tones she should seek out to liven up her glow a bit more.

Mariah

Today, Glowing Color features Mariah. “Mother of 6, Home School Teacher/Interior Design Student/Ex-Dancer/Ex-singer (who still sings on occasion) and Health Instructor.  I am a Christian and love Jesus.  For fun I jam it up with some muso’s and perform live. I live in Australia.  Day to day I teach children and also keep my finger on the pulse for interior design.

Mariah’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? For the last few months, close to a year I have worn neutrals because I don’t know what shades suit me best.  Aging makes it all confusing.  What do you wear when you are close to 50? I know that coral, deep beige corals, wheat beige, warm animal print and black have become staples. I can slide between cools and warms, but some warms don’t work and some cools don’t work, so really I just don’t know.

What color(s) do you wear the least? White and Blue (never wear them!) 

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? Deep Red and Gold. Black if it’s cut beautifully with some oyster in it and a touch of lace for a hint of cleavage or leg… but just a hint.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? Champagne.  Coral.  Black.  Brown.  Burgundy.

Mariah is an Autumn. I could identify her almost immediately, with the first photo she sent in of her in a tan sweater (not pictured), and the way it made her eyes and skin sparkle. Mariah has been confused by being typed in other seasons, but I think the problem is she has not ventured far enough into the more vibrant Autumn tones; most of her colors have been on the lighter to pastel side. Although her blog interview mentioned some good colors such as burgundy, gold, and coral, most of her warmer photographs were in lighter colors. I think she will notice a big difference after she goes a bit darker and more vivid with her clothes. She is on the right track though!

Maria

Today, Glowing Color features Maria.

Maria’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

Yellow and black.

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

Pink, red, white. 

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? 

Yellow, red, blue.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

Yellow, red, lilac, violet. 

Maria in cooler colors:

Maria in warmer colors:

mustard

Although I did not have a large sample size to work with, I can see that Maria is a Winter. The mustard-yellow is a pretty easy giveaway, as that is a strong color, and will easily “out” someone as warm or cool. In Maria’s case, the mustard washes her out. As for the cooler colors, I see a difference in the darker, bolder tones than the lighter turquoise and jade. Maria should eschew the yellow in her wardrobe and seek out the deep and vibrant cool jewel tones.

Michelle is gorgeous! She sent some extra photos that I did not use on the blog with her hair down and she has such a striking look. Michelle’s season was pretty obvious to me with almost the first photo I saw. Michelle is a Winter. The warm colors wash her out, but the cool colors bring her beautiful brown eyes into sharp focus and flow against her dark hair.

Ali

Today, Glowing Color features Ali.

About Ali: “My name is Ali, I’m 21 years old, a college student living in San Diego. I discovered color analysis at the beginning of high school and have been struggling ever since trying I discover what season I am. I’ve jumped around all of them, never being able to come to a complete answer. I’ve dyed my hair since I was in middle school, so that may have lead to a lot of confusion for me. I started out super pale blonde as a child, which darkened to a medium brown and eventually dark brown with a red tinge to it. My hair has been every color of the rainbow, blonde and orange-red being the worst on me! I love fashion and books, candles and pug dogs. Follow me on Pinterest @Alexzandra Lansing!”

Ali’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I wear a lot of black–it’s simple, matches with everything, and I’ve been told it looks good on me. I also wear white for the same reasons.

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

Orange and brown. I’ve always felt muddy when I wore them! 

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? 

I feel sexy in red or white.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

I get compliments in both light and dark blue, purple, yellow, and black, and hot pink.

Another woman with beautiful eyes! Extra points to Ali for the creativity in the “orange” photo, haha. Ali is a Summer. The warm tones she has in her hair dye are throwing off her look a bit; they make her skin look flat. But when you compare the cooler tones to the warmer tones, you can see a clear difference. The warmer colors wash her out a bit, but Ali’s face positively lights up in the cooler colors, and the paler colors of Summer would greatly flatter her. I am especially hoping she sends us some updated photos since her current ones are mostly darker and brighter colors. Also notice from her Color Interview where she mentions she feels “muddy” in brown and orange. Ali intuitively knew what colors she should avoid, but just needed some fine tuning regarding shades and tones. Ali says she wears a lot of black, which is often a safe color for a lot of people. I am excited to see her branch out and lighten up her wardrobe!

This is closer to Ali’s natural hair color, which helped me visualize her Summer colors that much more!

Amy

Today, Glowing Color features Amy.

About Amy: “I am 39 and have worked as a veterinary technician for the last 17 years. I’m also an aspiring artist and nature lover. I like to spend my free time drawing, painting, working on photography, hiking, gardening and hanging out with my pets and family.”

Amy’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I like to wear warmer colors most of the time like rust, orange, olive green. I really like these colors but aren’t sure if they work on me. I also love plum and soft, muted colors.

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

I rarely wear jewel tones as I just don’t like them. I also don’t wear white often. 

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? 

I feel the most sexy in nudes and very light peach.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

I have gotten compliments in peach, cranberry and deep teal/blue.

First, how beautiful are Amy’s eyes? Stunning! Although the lighting varies in several photos, I can see that Amy is an Autumn. I suspected this before I even saw her warmer-colored photos when I got to the 2nd photo she sent me of herself in white. The cooler colors, while lovely, are just sitting on her. The warmer colors, particularly the yellow and burnt orange, absolutely light up her face and bring a vivacious spark. Amy is a woman who subconsciously is in tune with her best colors, based on her color interview. Although she sent in more photos of her in cool colors, I hope she will begin to cull her wardrobe to favor these bright and warm tones.

Nikki

Today, Glowing Color features Nikki, the fashion and lifestyle blogger at She Wore Ribbon. She Wore Ribbon is a beautiful blog and has so many dreamy photos in different locations (Paris!) featuring Nikki’s lovely face! Check her out!

About Nikki: “I saw your site today and I’ve always been very interested in colour analysis- but could never quite work my season out! I’m Nikki, I’m 23 years old and I live in a seaside town in England with my two kittens, Maggie and Jude. I’m a freelance fashion writer and I run a fashion and lifestyle blog called She Wore Ribbon. I’ve always been obsessed with fashion, and shopping is definitely my favourite hobby! I’m forever wondering what new styles of clothes to try, what make up shades to buy or what colour to dye my hair, so colour analysis will be super helpful for the future! When I’m not writing about clothes, I’m watching comedy shows, listening to music or walking around with my giant headphones on.”

Nikki’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I wear quite a lot of blue, all year round!

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

I rarely wear earthy tones or citrus colours.

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful?

I like wearing blues, pink and white for everyday wear, but opt for red and black when I want something a little bolder! 

In what color(s) do you receive the most compliments?

I think that would have to be blue again!

Nikki is….an Autumn! This may come as a bit of a shock to her as she loves her cool, blue shades but what I noticed when reviewing her photos was that in the cooler colors, there was dramatic contrast between her pale skin and the cool blues and her eye colors. But with the warm colors, everything softened: her facial features, her eyes, her skin tone began to glow, her hair even looked warmer. I would love to see Nikki in some mustard yellow or yellow-orange!
