Color Analysis Quiz Step 3

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

Some of the medium warm colors may not feel right with your gray hair, but this doesn't mean you have cool undertones. In Your Color Style, you would likely be a level 1 which means you lean cool within your color palette. You would remove some of the deeper earthier colors and focus on the lighter warm colors and the rich cool colors.

There is one last step. What is your chroma? Are you Bright or Soft. Do you wear bright colors well or do they feel too strong on you?

The Warm Color Palettes Explained

The video below explains the color theory behind the warm color palettes. Understanding how and why a color in a color palette can help you understand where which color palette you is right for you.

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

Soft colors are colors that have been softened in some way. In art, the color on the opposite side of the color wheel can be added to mute a color. You can also add white or black to a color. Adding a touch of green to a bright red will create a muted red. You can then add white or black to create light to dark versions of this muted red. Muted colors can have an earthy quality to them.
The brown skinned woman on the right is Soft Warm and Deep. I included her as an example because if her eyes and eyebrows were lighter she could be Soft Warm and Medium.
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 earthy 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.
