TRUE SUMMER COLOUR GUIDE
TRUE SUMMERs main characteristic is cool and muted. Your colours are the coolest ones in Summer family, there is no warm colour in your features. Your skin, eye and hair colours have blue undertones and they all blend naturally together. Overall, you have medium contrast in your features due to your darker hair tone and fair skin. You have beige skin tone and grayish blue, muted eyes.
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 with your dark or light neutral colours.
TRUE SUMMERs have soft, muted, medium value colours with cool blue undertones in their palette. True summer colours are softer, cooler and darker than other summer palettes.
Since you have medium contrast in your features, we recommend you to choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means, combining the different shades of the same colour or combining neighboring colours. You have many option to do these combinations in your colour palette.
Avoid clear and bright colours and high contrast and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic) , otherwise you look washed out behind your outfit.
Since you have cool and soft appearance, neutral colours will harmonize your natural look perfectly. You can create sole light neutral combinations as well. Black is not in your palette, cause its too dark for you. Try deep gray shades instead of black. White is also too bright for you, you can choose other light neutrals or pastel pinks in your colour palette for your combinations.
Since your natural look has medium contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Your colour palette has medium value colours meaning neither dark or light. Best to choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints.
Medium scale, loosely arranged and light colour patterns such as flowers, water colour designs and other loosely arranged designs. Avoid too dense, sharp and geometric patterns.
