This is probably the most important section of this guide. Your level of intensity will not only drive the type of colors you wear, it will help you understand HOW to wear those colors. We won’t go into too much detail in this guide on how to wear your colors, but I’ll refer you to a few resources at the end of this guide.
To determine if you are soft or bright, let’s consider your natural intensity. If you have a high intensity in your coloring and tone then you are bright, and if you have low intensity then you are soft. But it’s not so black and white because not everyone fits in these extremes. You may be somewhere in the middle. There are a total of six levels of intensity. You will fit into one of these levels. Once you identify with a level, you will know if you are soft or bright.
I’m going to list each level of intensity with descriptions. Read through each one and pick the level that best describes you.
