Color types

The pigmentation of the skin, the color of the eyes, the natural hair color and the reaction of the skin to the sun are decisive for the typology.
The pigmentation of the skin is the coloring that we call skin types and which can have the following differences in the white population:

Super Light - pale pink, pale yellowish, whitish;
Light - translucent pink, light beige;
Medium - beige brown, well supplied with blood, light yellow, medium brown;
Dark - dark brown, red brown, olive.

Accordingly, the skin types can be divided into different color types, which, however, do cross:

Spring - pale yellowish, light beige, beige brown, light yellow, medium brown;
Summer - pale pink, whitish, translucent pink, well supplied with blood, red-brown;
Autumn - whitish, light beige, beige brown, well supplied with blood, dark brown;
Winter - whitish, light yellow, medium brown, dark brown.

The colors of the eyes can be added to the skin colors, so that the assumption of the color type can be confirmed, such as:

Spring - green, light blue, water blue, brown, honey colored eyes;
Summer - powder-blue, gray-blue, brown eyes;
Autumn - dark brown, petrol, green eyes;
Winter - dark brown, steel blue, dark blue eyes.

It is the same with hair colors. They correspond to the following color types:

Spring - blonde from light to dark, often also ash-tone, brown;
Summer - Mostly ash blonde, dull dark brown;
Autumn - Any real shade of red, brown;
Winter - black, dark brown, white, early graying.

Clear (light) analyzes are when we can combine several attributes in a color type. It is also easier to identify tanned skin than pale winter, because the sun has made the pigmentation more visible. It becomes difficult when we encounter contradicting appearances, such as light blonde hair, dark complexion and one eye color that can have several color types, namely brown.

To get it right, you have to learn it right. You can then see for yourself in front of the mirror what the right and wrong colors are. If you definitely know your color type, you will have zero problems choosing the right clothing colors in the future. It looks different with the colors of the foundation of a make-up.
