Hi, I'm Kelly Machbitz, Certified Image Consultant and Beauty Expert, and today I'm going to tell you how to determine your skin tone by season. You may have heard about the seasonal color analysis where it takes into account your skin tone, your hair color and your eye color. There are lots of books published on this subject, and in fact, I actually have a chapter in my book where this talks about seasonal color analysis. It actually has a chart inside where you can select your skin tone, hair color and eye color, and it will tell you what season it is. But to give it to you in a little brief description here today, the seasons are broken down into cool and warm, and Fall would be a warm skin tone, where Spring also would be a warm skin tone, and Summer and Winter would be cool skin tones, and what makes a difference actually is in the intensity, the difference between your hair color and your skin tone. So, for instance, here we have Danielle has a warm skin tone. She has a light hair color so she would be categorized as a Spring. If she were to have a darker hair color, she might be an Autumn, maybe red or a dark brown color. If she were to have a cool skin tone, she would be either a Winter or a Summer, dark hair and cool skin is considered Winter and light hair and cool skin would be considered a Summer. So that's some basic differences, and if you want to know a quick tip on how to tell if you have a warm skin tone or a cool skin tone, you can go to your cosmetic counter and they'll be happy to help you or you can check the inside of your wrist. If you can see the veins, if they are more on the blue shade you have a cooler skin tone, and if they're more green, you have a warmer skin tone. So, that's some tips on how to tell your skin tone by season. I'm Kelly Machbitz, Certified Image Consultant and beauty expert.
