I could immediately that Annie’s hair color was too dark for her. Annie has these big, beautiful, green eyes that were being overpowered by her long, dark, hair. This imbalance also overshadowed her face. Right away, Winter and Autumn were eliminated. After a careful look at her in the lighter colors, I could fairly easily see that the lighter warm tones were washing her face out and not doing justice to her eyes. But in the lighter cool tones, her face took on an ethereal glow and her eyes came more into focus. Annie is a Summer. As often seen in the Color Interviews, she was on the right track with her frequently-worn and complimented bright pinks and greens. Reds work for some Summers and I would tweak it to a pure, brilliant primary red like Winters often wear, for Annie. I sent Annie some recommendations for lightening up her clothes and hair color. I think she will begin a dramatic transformation with these colors.

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.

Maritza is a Winter. The fuchsia and the royal blue jumped out right away. Her face looks so clear and bright in these colors. Maritza should definitely stay close to the bolder, more vibrant Winter colors and avoid the light and pastel cool colors. Also, go back and read her Color Interview. She was very in tune with her season unconsciously.
