Contrast in Color Alliance of BFAS, or Color Me Direct or Beauty for You

In Color Alliance, and it's new names, this is how they view contrast:



Light True Contrasting Vivid
skin Light True Light Light or Dark
eyes Light True Medium Dark
hair Light True Dark Dark

So you could have a light spring, summer, autumn or winter, supposedly.
As well as a true of every season, which I assume is medium, but essentially is the base palette.
And you can have a contrasting or vivid of all four seasons.

Since I am a Contrasting Summer, my light skin, medium green eyes, and dark ash brown hair equals Summer with contrast, not Winter, in this system.  My color palette looks very close to winter, I just don't wear stark white or black.




LIGHT

Your skin, hair, and eye coloring is light overall. Your best color combinations balance light to mid-range colors. Your best single colors are light to medium.


TRUE

Your skin, hair, and eye coloring is medium. Your best color combinations are medium worn with dark. Your best single colors are also medium colors.

VIVID

Your skin, hair, and eye coloring is mid-value to dark. Your best color combinations are bright and dark colors worn together. Your best single colors are bright.

CONTRASTING

Your skin, hair, and eyes combine lights with darks. Your best color combinations are light and dark colors worn together with a bright accent. Your best single colors are dark or bright.


... but hey, don't listen to me, EXPRESS YOUR TRUTH! Jane
