Remember two thirds of women are neutral, which these seasons are.

CMAS FIRELIGHT WINTER — [winter-spring personality description]
How do Rose McGowan and Sophie Ellis-Bextor compare in cool tones and hues?
The reds, greens and browns are for the main seasons, not specific to the subseason.
A Clear Spring should be best in tints, but second best in hues.
A Clear Winter should be best in hues, but second best in tints.
Both can wear this bright Spring red tint.
The Winter pure red hue is better on Sophie.
Truth-is-Beauty says hot pink is a Bright Spring dealbreaker, although I'm not sure I agree, I would think a hot coral would be better.
The hot coral is better on Rose.
This Spring apple green tint is better on Rose, but both could wear it.
This is pretty close to the electric green that Truth-is-Beauty has as a Bright Winter dealbreaker. It is better on Sophie, but both again could wear it.
The Spring tan tint is better for Rose.
Both could wear the Winter brown hue, though black is better for both.
CONTRAST: Clear Spring and Clear Winter both have high contrast.
Clear Springs can wear black, unlike other Springs (see Spring wearing black). It is debatable whether they can wear stark white. They wear navy, light charcoal, medium and light gray and peach. They wear TINTS.
Keeping in mind that these are warmer tints, they look better on Rose.
|Browns are not the preferred Clear Spring neutral. |
Springs need very clean browns and tans and sands made
with high chroma pigments that reflect light.
Clear Winters, like all Winters, can wear black (see Winters wearing black). Stark white is best for Clear Winters. They also wear taupe, icy pastels and bright navy. in pure HUES.
Keeping in mind these are clear pure hues, they look somewhat better on Sophie.
