Today, Glowing Color features Kit. Kit writes,

I just found your blog this morning and I am totally addicted already.  I have been on a quest for over a year hoping to identify my color.  I have “tried on” every season and still feel lost.  I’m getting older (will be 60 next month!) and I just can no longer see myself or identify what I look good in.  I need help!
 
I would be most interested in learning from you the services you offer and their rates.
 
Look forward to hearing from you.
 
Your new reader and fan,
Kit
About Kit: “I live in Los Angeles and have been married for over 20 years.  I love to draw and paint, read cookbooks and healthy living blogs.  I am mostly vegetarian but do enjoy occasional seafood and chicken.  My husband retires in less than three years and we will be moving from Los Angeles to a much smaller market.  We are both very excited about that and right now feel a little like we are living in limbo because we are ready for the next chapter in our lives but it isn’t quite time.”

Kit’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? My default colors are blue, gray, and white.

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

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? Blue.

Kit is a Winter. Kit has been favoring cooler colors in her wardrobe, particularly blue. She instinctively gravitated toward the colors in her season! She wrote about her hair color feeling off, which makes sense because it is a warm brown with golden highlights. She definitely needs to go cooler with her hair, which will also set off her gorgeous eyes.

Stephanie

Today Glowing Color features Stephanie. Stephanie writes,

Hello!

I am 38, born and raised in Olympia, WA. I was away for 5 years on active duty with the air force in Virginia, yet came back home to ply. I have 2 children, 11 and 2 both boys that keep me pretty busy, yet i still stay active with running and just started participating in the Spartan races with my oldest. I am a Judicial Educator with the state and a Knowledge Operations Manger with the Air Force. I came across your site today and am impressed with your analyses. What are your rates for consultation?

Here is Stephanie’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? black, grey, and blue

What color(s) do you wear the least? red and orange

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

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? Can’t say about the color I receive compliments in…I mostly hear that I look tired.

Let’s look at Stephanie in cooler colors first.

Great photos, Stephanie! There’s a correlation between the fact that Stephanie hears she looks tired often, and her most common colors of black, grey, and blue. That’s because Stephanie is an Autumn. She needs to go deep into the boldest, most vibrant autumn hues and shy away from the duller tones and pastels.

Susan

Today, Glowing Color features Susan. Susan is from the NYC area where she works as an actor and model. She enjoys classic film, art, design, and museums. 4 of her friends actually gifted her this color analysis! Susan writes,

I am so thrilled to have this done, as seasonal color analysis has been torturing me. I’m so very grateful for my friends for doing this. they rock.
 First, I was termed a true summer (which quite honestly, either that or another summer may be accurate) by Christine Scamman, who is awesome. She analyzed every striation of color in my eyeball, and said it was textbook true summer. (I blew up my eyeball photo and pixilated it, and noticed every single color of it is in the true summer fan, if that means anything…dunno….)
 I had no reason to doubt Christine, until the true summer group…told me otherwise. 

 pls advise,
Susan

I want to address the issue about eye color, because I’ve had several e-mails that mention this: I do not use eye color alone to determine someone’s season. If that was all that was needed to determine someone’s season, what about all the women of color who have dark brown eyes? Are they all the same season? No (though some websites would have you believe this)! So while eye color can be a helpful factor at times, it is by no means the main way of determining season. It comes from your skin and all the unique glowing colors and tones within!

Here is Susan’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? pink and blue 

What color(s) do you wear the least? yellow

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

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? pink

When we look at Susan’s photos, keep in mind that her natural hair color is self-described as a dark, ashy brown…mushroom brown instead of a true brunette. Let’s look at cooler colors first.

Now let’s look at Susan in warmer colors.

Although we don’t have much to go by in the warmer colors, it’s fairly obvious to me that Susan is not warm. She is definitely cool. However, Susan is not a Summer. Susan is a Winter. The cool pastel colors of Summer wash her out; they make her look too pale. Imagine her naturally darker hair color, and you’ll see that Susan should stick with the vibrant tones of Winter. Her eyes even pop more in Winter colors versus Summer.
