  1. Hi, the only true Light Springs from your List are Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz and Cynthia Nixon. The other
    Girls are Summer-Types. ;)

    1. Hello, would you be so kind to explain your point of view. I really wonder why you think the other celebrities aren't Light Spring. thx

    2. Agnes Turi: If you read more closely what the author has written above the pictures, you would see she said she had shown the pictures for a better idea of the seasonal palette and would have to study them more closely to make sure her decision on their seasons were correct. Thank you...

    3. Hi Sammy,
      I'm the author of the post :) I was just wonder about Anonymous comment and different point of view.

    4. For some reason, in some colourtype guides, summer and spring are switched: spring is cool light and summer is warm light. I don't know why, but that could bring this confusion.

  2. Tylor Swift-deep atumn.
    Amanda Seyfried-deep autumn.
    Blake Lively-soft summer
    Claudia Schiffer-soft summer
    Kylie Minogue-light spring!
    I did a virtual test.

  3. Lovely palette, very helpful photos. On my computer, though, the colours at the top left of the palette look very dark, even black, which is not what Light Springs should wear. Are they actually charcoal or navy?

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      I'm happy that you like my post and thank you for the notice. That color would like to be a midnight blue or darker navy shade. And yes, black is not in the Light Spring palette while charcoal grey is more a Summer shade than a Spring.

  4. Thank you so much, Agnes. Yes, I definitely look better in navy than in charcoal, so that will be my best dark neutral. Such a helpful post!

  5. Is this a joke? Where are the questions for the quiz? I have clicked on everything.
    I think I will go to another quiz that works. I think this quiz needs some serious updating.

      I hope you will like it too!

  6. I feel like I'm the only person that doesn't see a spring in Taylor Swift. Compared to Blake Lively who looks so amazing in peach, Taylor just doesn't look right in warmer colors to me. I feel like we're so used to her wearing bold red lips that we can't see her as a summer. But she looks amazing in light, dusty, cool colors. I really want to see her in a light dusty pink but she doesn't seem to be wearing that. However I found her in a very dusty purple which complemented her so well and also softer, pinker lips suit her way better than a peach toned lip. I'm just a bit confused because on every site I've checked so far, she's always stated as a light spring, but I just don't see it.

    1. Hello Ronnie,
      thank you for your thoughts.
      To be honest, I think the bold red lipstick is too dominant for Taylor such as black that she wears sometimes. I agree with you the lighter colors and lipstick shades are much better on her. However, as I checked, her natural hair color was a warmer golden blonde that is a typical Spring shade. Now, she has a more ashy or light brownish-blonde hair color that probably enhance her Summer secondary season.
      If you compare Taylor to a Light Summer like Naomi Watts or Cate Blanchett, you can see that Taylor is warmer than the other two actresses. Plus, as I see, the lighter gold colors/dresses complement Taylor overall look better than the cooler ones.

  7. I feel these colors look best on me but I don't quite match up the descriptors. My skin tans easily and my eyes are not as warm as described. Still a little confused.
