Clear Spring vs. Clear Winter: how do you tell the difference?


If your dominant quality is CLEAR, how do you know if you are Spring or Winter?  and actually Clear means you are either Spring/Winter or Winter/Spring, so which comes first?

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


Disclaimer: ideally you should be draped in person



STRIKING SPRING — (Spring – Winter, aka Bright/Clear Spring) medium to dark brunette, root beer brown, black (with warm tones), also blonde or platinum, or silver, gray or white hair. Skin tone is porcelain to dark olive but with yellow (or pink) under base.  Angular, oval or oblong face shape.  Eyes are usually brown, possibly with a yellow marking, may also be shining golden brown or blue with rays or spokes, or yellow marking around starburst, or open space in nerve wreath. (Skin around the eyes will be yellow in Springs).  [spring-winter personality description]


Rose's eye

The STRIKING SPRING (Spring-Winter) looks somewhat like a Firelight Winter.  They can be Classic or Dramatic with the addition of being Creative, which is more fun and flirty, than the Dramatic style of a Winter.  Sometimes a Striking Spring will think they are an Autumn in terms of personality, not understanding the strong duality of their nature.  They may also think they are a Summer because they appear soft without the right makeup on, and both Spring and Winter are caring, when combined this may feel like the Phlegmatic nurturing quality.  
Interestingly, at 12 Blueprints it is noted that Bright Spring and Soft Summer have some similarities.

FIRELIGHT WINTER — (Winter with Spring blend , aka Clear/Bright Winter)) Your hair color may be blonde, almost white blonde or light (or even dark) brown, silver or pure white, looking like a Spring, but they have a more aloof Winter air.   They also have Winter contrast. Skin will have strawberry undertone and will have light bisque complexion.  Eyes will have winter spokes, or dark lines around the iris, in sparkling blue, brown, tan, cool blue, bright hazel or gray eyes.  (Skin around the eyes will be grey in Winters).  [winter-spring personality description
These are CMAS descriptions.

Sophie's eye

The FIRELIGHT WINTER (Winter-Spring) looks somewhat like a Striking Spring, but with more poise and elegance.  Their style may be Alluring Romantic or Creative Classic.  Sometimes a Firelight Winter will think they are an Autumn in terms of personality, not understanding the extreme duality of their energy.

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.

REDS


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.

GREENS


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 darker Winter pure green hue is better on Sophie.

BROWNS


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.

NEUTRALS



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.

Dark Autumn vs Dark Winter: how do you tell the difference?


If your dominant quality is DARK, how do you know if you are Autumn or Winter?  and actually Dark means you are either Autumn/Winter or Winter/Autumn, so which comes first?

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


Disclaimer: ideally you should be draped in person

(Keep in mind, not everyone agrees on these celebrities and their season).


STRIKING or BRONZE AUTUMN — (Autumn-Winter, aka Deep/Dark Autumn) Very dark hair  (usually brunette, possibly black with warm tones, possibly metallic looking) indicates a mixing with Winter Season. This Autumn type may look good in a warm black which is found on strip 40 in Autumn’s Color Fan®.  Eyes may be dark warm brown, rust, deep olive-green, or steel blue.   Skin will have warm dark red orange undertone.  May have oval face shape, with prominent cheek bones, or broad or angular face. (Skin around the eyes will be orange in Autumns).  [autumn-winter personality description]


Natalie's eye

The STRIKING AUTUMN (Autumn-Winter) may look somewhat like a Sunset Winter, and they may be misidentified as a Winter because they are not indicated to dress Natural, like other Autumns.  They may be Exotic Dramatic or Creative Classic.


    You are Dark Winter!
    SUNSET WINTER — (Winter mixed with Autumn) Hair color will be deep auburn or medium dramatic red.  Face may be squared at the jaw or prominent cheekbones.  Hair contrasts with very cool skin.  Light skin is milky white, with very little evidence of freckles.  Cool skin undertone will be mulberry.  (Skin around the eyes will be grey in Winters).  [winter-autumn personality description]


    Rose's eye

    The SUNSET WINTER (Winter-Autumn) looks somewhat like a Striking Autumn.  They may dress in Elegant Classic or Exotic Dramatic style.

    Deep Winter personality


    How do Natalie Portman and Rose Byrne compare in deep shades and hues? 

    The reds, greens and browns are for the main seasons, not specific to the subseason.


    A Dark Autumn should be best in shades, but second best in hues. A Dark Winter should be best in hues, but second best in shades.

    REDS


    This Autumn shade of rust is better with Natalie's skin.


    The pure Winter red hue is best on Rose, though this shows Natalie's secondary Winter.  


    Warm Violet is a Dark Autumn dealbreaker at Truth-is-Beauty.
    It looks much better on Natalie than Rose, whose skin becomes too red.

    GREENS


    The Autumn shade of olive green is better on Natalie.



    The darker Winter pure green hue is better on Rose, though it shows Natalie's secondary Winter.


    Goldenrod is a Dark Winter dealbreaker at Truth-is-Beauty.
    I'm not sure I agree with that, but I suppose it's better on Rose.

    BROWNS


    The Autumn shaded brown is good on both.


    The darker Winter brown hue is also good on both, because Deeps are good in brown.


     CONTRAST: Dark Autumn and Dark Winter 

    NEUTRALS


    Deep Autumns, unlike other Autumns, can wear black, though it should be a warm black. Like other Autumns, they do not wear white.  They wear cream instead.  They also wear medium taupe, beige and clear navy SHADES.



    Dark Autumn and Dark Winter neutrals are pretty close, but the Autumn ones should be shades.


    Autumns need dull browns with some low chroma pigment mixed in.




    Dark Winters, like all Winters, can wear black, though they might want to wear a brown black (see Winters wearing black). (Stark white is really best for Clear Winters.)  Instead they wear icy gray, hot pink, blue red, true red, bright navy and light yellow in pure HUES.


    Dark Autumn and Dark Winter neutrals are pretty close, but the Winter ones should be pure hues.
