The Warm Color Palettes Explained

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


BRIGHT Explained

"Bright" in Your Color Style means clear chroma colors. 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 (aka clear chroma 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 to soften it. Adding a touch of green to a bright red will create a muted or gray-red. Or you can add white or black to create slightly softened versions of red. The soft warm color palettes in Your Color Style are not muted (grayed). They are only slightly softened.

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, but not the brightest color, choose SOFT. If you can wear a clear bright red or tomato red well and love it, then choose BRIGHT.

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 softer colors. If your natural coloring and tone is softer, then a bright color will jump forward versus being in harmony with you.

  • I got through steps 1&2 and determined that I am warm & light. I have white hair with some warm grey and medium warm yellow skin and hazel eyes. Close up my eyes are pretty light but from a distance my eyes look a little muted compared to bright blue and green eyes. The whites of my eyes aren’t very bright. Before my hair grayed I had medium brown with red highlights. My lips are a soft pink, my brows are light so my features don’t create a lot of contrast. Am I bright or soft?
    Your Color Style replied:
    I would choose Soft
