A quick look into your eyes:
Spring              Summer
Autumn               Winter

Other than skin tone, eyes show more about a person’s season than most physical traits. Each season has a dominant feature which is shown in the eye. The SUMMER eye appears as crackly glass, WINTER – spokes on a wheel, SPRING – Yellow sunburst around a gray doughnut shape, AUTUMN – Aztec sun directly around the pupil with specks and dots sometimes.

There are 5 colors that express who you are:
Your Essence Color: Your vulnerable color; your version of white, a skin tone that harmonizes the colors in the palm of your hand 
Your Romantic Color: Your passion color, your version of red found by gently pinching a fingertip-or the color of when you blush 
Your Dramatic Color: Your "look at me" color, your version of blue, found in the color of the veins in your wrist 
Your Energy Color: The color that supports you when you need a pick me up, taken from the darkest part of your iris (but not the ring around the iris)
Your Tranquil Color: Your peaceful color, taken from the lightest part of your iris 

And 3 neutral colors that complete your wardrobe basics:
Your Version of Black: the most flattering dark color for you, taken from the ring around your iris 
Your Version of Brown: a more casual, medium-dark shade, taken from the darkest part of your hair
 * Your Version of Khaki: your best light color, taken from the lightest part of your hair
