Color Analysis Quiz Step 3

You selected COOL and MEDIUM. This means you have warm undertones with medium eyes, hair AND/OR skin.

This means that you wear cool medium colors well. However, there is one last step. What is your chroma? Are you Bright or Soft. Do you wear bright jewel tone colors well or do you wear grey-blues and grey-greens best?

If you know what your chroma is, then you know your color type! Select it below. If not, scroll down a bit to learn more about being soft or bright.

 

Watch this video that explains bright, soft and muted colors and why this is so important in learning the types of colors that flatter you best.

 
 

BRIGHT Explained

Clear chroma colors are colors that start out pure. Like a bright red. White or black may be added to create light and dark versions of the color, but the color started with a clear chroma. Pastel pink to bright red to maroon can all be considered "bright" colors.

SOFT Explained

Muted or greyed colors are colors that have been muted. In art, the color on the opposite side of the color wheel can be added to mute a color. You can also add grey to a color. Adding a touch of green to a bright red will create a muted/greyed red. You can then add white or black to create light to dark versions of this muted red. Muted colors can have a grey/dusty/earthy quality to them.

  

When you wear a brighter color, do you feel good in it or do you feel like it over powers you? If it overpowers you, you may be SOFT. If you can definitely wear brighter colors, even if not the brightest color, you are likely BRIGHT.
 
When you wear a soft grey color, do you feel at home in it or do you feel a little blah. If a muted color feels off, then you may be BRIGHT. If you can wear muted colors well and feel great in them, then you may be SOFT.
 
One more way to figure this out. If you wore a bright color, would you see the color first or you first? Bright colors will pop off of muted colors. If your natural coloring and tone is soft, then a bright color will jump forward versus being in harmony with you.
 

Still not sure?

If you do not see a scenario that relates to you and you have watched the video, post in the comments what your combination of hair, skin and eyes are, so that I can make sure to cover it in this quiz.
