Color analysis – fake theory or not?
All of us have at least once heard about the so called seasonal color analysis. It can be simple consisting of just 4 types or more detailed of 16 or more. We want to say strong NO to typing because as Kendall Jenner once said “Anybody doesn’t need anything, everybody’s beautiful”. These aren’t just allegations – we can give proofs and here they go. First, we need to make sure all of us understand we’re talking about the same thing. Seasonal color analysis is based on range of colors, tones and shades matching well your eyes, skin tone and hair.
Skin: light but not white sometimes with sunspots
Hair: most often fair, sometimes tender nut-brown
Eyes: all light except hazel
Best examples are Cara Delevingne and Taylor Swift
Theorists say, best color choice for them: all shades of green, coral red, apricot, peachy, golden, beige.
But who on Earth said that black is absolutely prohibited for them?!
Skin: milky white with blueish shade
Hair: fair, dark blonde
Eyes: blue grey, cold green
We’re talking about Blake Lively and Miranda Kerr
Best color choice – all cold shades, blue, pink, raspberry-red, light grey
Some guides claim that people of this type should ban neon and vibrant colors including red. This allegation is based on opinion that these colors are too aggressive for romantic “summers”. Too aggressive? LOL!
The simplest type to mark out.
Skin: glowing “golden” skin with sunspots
Hair: all shades of red
Eyes: golden and amber
Typists keep saying:
Best color choice – emerald green, brown, red, beige
Worst color choice – white, black, blue, navy blue and pink.
And now let’s see how Julianne Moore and Isla Fisher bust this myth.
There’re plenty of subtypes of “winter”. The indicators mostly common among them are:
Skin: snow-white or bronze and darker
Hair: dark, black, silver-white
Eyes: brown, black or frozen grey or blue
Best choice – white, black, cherry, bordeaux, vivid pink
NO NO NO (according to color analysis) – orange, brick-red, light brown, almost beige, purple.
And now just watch Kendall Jenner and Katy Perry wearing “their” and not “their” colors. Pretty obvious, right?
|BEIGE OR LIGHT BROWN
Summing up – we don’t want to say that color types theory is a complete fake. Our message is simple – don’t put blind trust in the results of this analysis. Question it! And trust your reflection in the mirror.
