COMPARISON

Dark Winter sits between True Winter and Dark Autumn on the seasonal flow chart. Dark Winter colours are the darkest and least cool in the Winter family. They are also less saturated and less bright than other Winter seasons.

Neighbouring the Dark Autumn, according to flow theory, makes the Dark Winter palette warmer and softer than other Winters.

Dark Winter Comparison

Dark Winters and Dark Autumns have dark colouring and high contrast in their features, but Dark Autumns have muted appearance compared to Dark Winter’s brilliance.

Dark Winters have cool (blue, gray) undertones, whereas Dark Autumns have warm (golden, yellow) undertones. Also, Dark Winter's contrast level is higher than Dark Autumn’s.

CLOTHING COMBINATIONS

Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or dark or light neutral colours.

Dark Winter Colour Combination Examples

You have dark, neutral- cool and somewhat bright tones in your colour palette.

Dark Winter also has high contrast like other winter seasons; therefore, you can achieve this by pairing dark or light neutrals with opposite value accent colours (such as dark gray with light pink), but avoid adding too many accent colours in your combinations.

Complementary or analogous combinations are good options for you; however, make sure one of them is your neutral colour. They provide high contrast but not an overwhelming look.

You can always pair dark and light colours to create contrast. Opt to pair black with light colours or white with dark colours in your palette. Full black and white combinations or whole light or dark colour combinations may not be your best choice. 

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Patters should contain only Dark winter colours and have high contrast; they should not blend. Avoid light and too bright colours or floral patterns; choose abstract, geometric, and stylish patterns. Medium to big-scale patterns and prints will work better. 

Similar pattern, different shades

Bright, High contrast, Medium scale, OK

Medium contrast, Blended pattern, NO

High contrast, too Light, NO

JEWELRY

Both silver and gold are ok for Dark Winters, but silver/white gold looks better.

Emerald, Sapphire, Rubies and Garnet are good stone alternatives for your deep and rich colour combinations.

MAKE-UP COLOURS

Foundation&Concealer

Your skin tone is neutral-cool. Skin colour matching, matte, smooth and pink-based foundations, and concealers are best for you. Avoid too yellow-based foundations; they will conflict with your cool skin complexion.

Dark Winter Foundation Colours

Blush

You can choose dark or light blush colours according to your skin tone. Lighter skin complexions can use pinkish alternatives, while darker ones can use mulberry and plum tones.

Dark Winter Blush Colours

Lipstick

Dark Winter Lipstick Colours

Dark Winters can use dark and intense colours freely, which would look best on them. Lipstick is your main make-up element since it will mirror your bright eyes and deep texture. Lightweight eye makeup with dark lipsticks will look very natural on you.

Eye shadows

Dark Winter Eye Shadow Colours

We recommend medium-tone cool shades from your palette. Especially, greens, purple and plum would be gorgeous with your brown colour eyes. Opt for slightly shimmery combinations. 

Eyeliner&Mascara

Dark Winter Eyeliner Colours

We recommend darker tones for eyeliners as well. You have many options other than black, like dark navy, dark chocolate, or dark purple tones. Black tones are better options for mascara.

Nail Polish

Your make-up colours are taken from your fashion colour palette. Cosmetic companies have their colour names for their products. You may not be able to find the exact names in the market when shopping for make-up products, but this colour palette will guide you to find the best colours that would match your complexion; you can search for similar colours as possible.
