Soft Warm Light Explained

You are soft warm light if you wear soft light warm colors best, you have warm undertones and you have light hair, eyes and skin. Your color palette is very similar to bright warm and light. You share the lights with the bright palette. The only difference between the two color palettes is the brightest clear chroma colors in the bright warm and light color palette have been slightly softened for the soft warm and light color palette. You'll see a mini color palette for soft warm and light below.

  • Love this pallete, it’s so much better than using “soft“. I was wondering though, do you have any examples of celebrities who would match soft, warm, light?
    Your Color Style replied:
    That’s a tough one because celebrities are hard to type since their makeup and lighting changes often. I don’t have a celebrity example for you. Sorry!JenSent from my iPhone
