Color Analysis Quiz - Step 1

Welcome to the Your Color Style Color Analysis Quiz!

This quiz will ask you about 3 to 4 questions based on your answers. 

You're going to learn a lot about the Your Color Style methodology as you move through this quiz. I felt compelled to explain a few things when asking the questions, because I don't want to assume you know what I'm talking about.

Step 1: Are you light, medium or deep?

Watch this video to help you understand if you are light, medium or deep.

    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.

    • I selected “light” in step 1 of the quiz, and then “warm” in step 2. It automatically takes me to bright, warm, and light and doesn’t give me the option of soft, warm, and light. Why is that?
      Your Color Style replied:
      The colors in the BWL palette are already softened with white. If they were also muted you’d get greyed light colors which don’t really do anything for you. Most people who are light need a little brightness. It doesn’t mean that you can always wear the brightest colors. Often these feel like too much. But the lighter colors and slightly darker colors will look great on you. Soft and warm colors are very earthy and really look best on someone with the same level of earthiness.

    • I have dark green/blue eyes, dark red hair with blonde around my face, and cool skin with no warmth in sight. Now, I tried going with medium as suggested in the common occurances but it led me to “soft summer” which does NOT work for me. Could I please have some help?
      Your Color Style replied:
      Based on your description you are bright and medium and very likely warm even if there’s no obvious warmth in your skin. You gave warmth in your hair and eyes. Bright warm medium JenSent from my iPhone

    • I have light brown ashy hair, green eyes, light skin that tans easily. And I light or medium? My hair was NOT blonde in my 20’s
      Your Color Style replied:
      I would go with medium

    • Hi-
      I have dark brown hair with warmth but a fair bit of silver strands throughout and black eyebrows. My eyes are medium to dark brown with some flecks of greeny-gold. My skin doesn’t have any pink and tans easily but I don’t know if it’s fair or medium.
      Your Color Style replied:
      Hi! If you have dark brown hair, the choose deep.

    • My hair is Brown Sugar dyed – dark golden blonde/light brown – depending on the light eyes are bright blue in the light and deep blue in muted light – my skin is pink light/med with blue undertones. Not sure if I am a bright cool light or medium. Thank you
      Your Color Style replied:
      If you naturally have brown hair, I’d choose medium. The golden hair may feel off with your cool undertones and Bright cool color palette.
