Your Best Colors

Now that you have an idea if you are Soft or Bright, your level of intensity and your temperature, let's look at the color wheels to understand what colors will look best on you.


Below is the SOFT color wheel. You would wear the colors from this color wheel if you consider your natural coloring and tone soft. Your level of intensity is Level 3 or 2. These colors are muted and should align with you beautifully.

If you have COOL undertones, you will wear all of the colors on the left side of the color wheel PLUS all of the colors that have stars. These are universal colors and will look good on everyone.

If you have WARM undertones, you will wear all of the colors on the right side of the color wheel PLUS all of the colors that have stars.

Below is the BRIGHT color wheel. You would wear the colors from this color wheel if you consider your natural coloring and tone bright. Your level of intensity is Level 6, 5 or 1. These colors are clear and bright and should align with you beautifully.

If you have COOL undertones, you will wear all of the colors on the left side of the color wheel PLUS all of the colors that have stars. These are universal colors and will look good on everyone.

If you have WARM undertones, you will wear all of the colors on the right side of the color wheel PLUS all of the colors that have stars.

As you can see, you have a full spectrum of colors that you can wear. How exciting!


Your Depth

Choosing your colors from the color wheels above is a good start, but you can customize your color palette even further.

My rule of thumb is to wear colors that are no darker than your darker feature. This is especially true for fair individuals. Wearing a dark color can feel heavy. You're off balance. Pay attention to the range of colors you are recommended to wear based on your level of intensity. Some of the lightest colors may not flatter you either.

In the Your Color Style™ system, there are a total of 12 specific color types. You have your 4 main types which are:

  • Bright & Warm
  • Bright & Cool
  • Soft & Warm
  • Soft & Cool

Within each of these are 3 subtypes: Light, Medium and Deep.

  • Bright Level 6 = Deep
  • Bright Level 5 = Medium/Deep
  • Bright Level 4 = Medium
  • Soft Level 3 = Medium/Deep
  • Soft Level 2 = Light/Medium
  • Level 1 = Light
