Cool Winter = Cool and Cool undertones

You are a cool winter if:

Your dominant characteristic is COOL

You have cool eyes: Charcoal gray, blue, violet, soft dark brown, icy hazel

You have cool skin: Rose beige, neutral beige, soft-cool olive or black skin.

You have cool hair: Blue-black, ashy dark to medium brown hair, silver, ashy white-blonde, salt & pepper. Absolutely no red or golden tones.

You have a definite Cool appearance with little or no signs of warmth. Stick with the cool Blues, Purples and Reds and avoid anything that’s warm like golden browns or oranges. While wearing cool colors is the main concern, you also want your colors to be bold enough to match your strong coloring… so soft pastels like sky blue or light lavender may wash you out.
