You Are Soft
This means you wear softer (dusty, muted or earthy) colors best. Look at the soft color wheel below. It is unlikely that you will look good in all of the colors. Going forward, this quiz will guide you in customizing your color wheel so that you are wearing your BEST colors.
Step 2: Are you WARM or COOL?
MOST people have either warm undertones or cool undertones.
If you have warm undertones, then you will wear the warm colors on the right side of your color wheel plus the universal colors on the cool side of the color wheel.
If you have cool undertones, then you will wear the cool colors on the left side of your color wheel plus the universal colors on the warm side of the color wheel.
The universal colors are marked with stars.
It IS possible to be neutral, but I am a firm believer that every person leans more into one temperature over another. Choose your best temperature and then use the other as a secondary palette.
Soft & Warm
Notice there is very little variation in color and tone for someone that is soft and warm. Their eyes almost match their hair and skin.
Golden, Yellow or Peach Skin Tone
Warm Eyes – Warm Hazel, Olive Green, Golden Yellow, Golden Brown
Hair color for soft and warm can be golden brown, brown with golden highlights and auburn.
You may not have warm tones in all three areas (eyes, hair, skin). You can have warm skin and hair but have cool eyes. You may have warm hair and eyes and neutral skin. That’s ok. You are still considered warm because you have more warm qualities than cool.

This page will give you some guidelines and other options to help you figure out your undertones.
If you just want us to tell you what your color type is, instead of guessing through the quiz, sign up for a professional color analysis. You may not be ready to invest in that yet, but I wanted to make sure you knew it was an option.
Submit Your Photo
If you have characteristics that are not covered on this page, send me a photo. If you’re willing, I’d like to include as many examples of “real” women as I can. If your photo has good lighting, I may use it in this quiz to help others. Sending me your photo does not guarantee that I will use it or that I will respond with your color type. However, if I do use your photo, I will let you know and you can follow yourself through the quiz.
Please visit the Ask Jen page to submit your photo. Be sure to tell me that your photo submission is for the quiz. I may also use your photo for a YouTube video.
When taking your photo, please be outside on an overcast day. This is really important. Avoid bright sun, shadows on the face and shade. Do not take your photo indoors with artificial light. The only exception would be to stand in front of a north facing window. Turn off any indoor lighting before taking your photo. Wearing a white shirt will help.
Thank you for helping make this quiz amazing!
