SOFT SUMMER COLOUR GUIDE
MUTED & COOL
SOFT SUMMERs have cool undertones with gray or pink undertones. The overall appearance is soft and muted.
There is a LOW TO MEDIUM (if you have dark hair) CONTRAST between your skin, eyes and hair. They blend rather than contrast each other.
Your skin is neutral or neutral-cool with ashy and pinky undertones. It has a muted appearance and ranges from fair to medium. It may have freckles. According to the metal test, Silver flatters you more than Gold.
Your eyes have grayish undertones; they are blue, green or hazel/light brown. For detailed eye pattern analysis, click here.
Your hair has ashy tones, ranging from ash blonde to dark ash brown. Your hair colour is mostly darker than in the other summer seasons.
Soft Summer sits on the seasonal flow chart between True Summer and Soft Autumn. Soft Summer colours are the softest and most gentle in the Summer family. They are also darker and less cool than other Summer Seasons.
Neighbouring the Soft Autumn, according to flow theory, makes the Soft Summer palette warmer and darker than other Summers and adds a brownish element to the colours.
Soft Summers and Soft Autumns have muted appearances and low contrast in their features. Their palette has similar, gentle, soft, and medium-value colours.
However, Soft Summers have cool (blue, gray) undertones, whereas Soft Autumns have warm (golden, honey) undertones.

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.
Your palette features soft, muted colors with medium values and cool undertones. The majority of these hues are grays and blue-based shades, with a prominent emphasis on pinks and purples.
Considering your low to medium contrast in your features, we recommend opting for monochromatic or analogous color combinations. This involves harmonizing different shades of the same color, such as light blue and dark blue, or combining neighboring colors like lilac or lavender with blue or light green.
You can also achieve balance by pairing colors of the same value, such as light neutrals with light accents, catering to your contrast level. Monochromatic combinations featuring pastel colors are particularly flattering for your palette. It's advisable to steer clear of clear and bright colors, high-contrast options, and bold combinations like complementary, triadic, or tetradic schemes, as they may overshadow your natural appearance.
Black is not a suitable choice for your palette due to its darkness; consider deep gray and cool brown shades as alternatives. Similarly, white can be too bright, so explore other light neutrals from your color palette for your combinations.

Since your natural look has low to medium contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Your colour palette has medium-value colours meaning neither dark nor light. Choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints.
Small to medium scale, loosely arranged, and light colour patterns such as flowers, watercolour designs, and delicate shapes would be excellent options for your natural look. Avoid too dense, big, or sharp shapes and geometric patterns.

You have a neutral-cool skin complexion with an ashy and pinky-beige undertone. You should choose a similar foundation colour to your skin tone, preferably the ones with matte and smooth finishes.

Your lipstick colours are blue-based pink tones. Avoid glossy and shimmery finishes; choose matte ones instead.
Your soft and muted colour complexion must be repeated with your makeup colours. Therefore, matte eye shadows would be better for you. Avoid bright and too-dark colours as well as shimmery finishes.
