  1. I'd say whether or not you avoid dark colors depends on your hair tone...I'm pretty sure I'm soft autumn because of my soft brown skin tone but my hair/eyebrows is naturally black so I can pull off black very easily.

    1. Hi Xelestial,
      most of the time dark colors (like black) make soft or warm seasonal color women looking unhealthy. However these color palettes also have darker colors like chocolate brown, navy or dark green. If someone with these seasonal color palettes loves black or dark colors I suggest her to wear them not close to her face or accessorize them with a colorful scarf.

      The most influential books say someone's seasonal color palette is determined by the complexity of hair and eyes color plus the skin tone. With naturally black hair/eyebrows I am not sure you are a Soft Autumn but if you would like send me your photo and I take a look at it.

  2. White blonde on top half of hair, dark deep chestnut brown underneath (bottom half), peach/very pink light beige skintone, brown eyes (light but not amber)... help determining my season? Thank you so much. Sorry if I commented twice, but I don't see my previous comment so I'm doubting that it posted.

    1. Hello Kelsi,
      about your description you could be a Soft Autumn but to make it sure please, send me a couple of photos to taggica@gmail.com :)

    2. Hi there im not sure if im warm autumn or soft autumn. I have mousy brown hair and brown eyes. Wondered if u can advise.

  3. Hello! I love your blog!
    I have a light skin, blond mousy hair, brown eyewbrows en blue eyes (no brown or green tones). I used to be a light blond, but my hair darkens with age :) and in the sun it lightens up a lot.
    In 2014 I had a professional color analysis. For me it really was an eye opener. I always believed myself to be Summer. Turns out i'm an autumn. :)
    Now i am trying t figure out what kind of autumn. I think i am an Soft Autumn, but how do i know for sure? Can you help me out?

    1. Hello Linda,
      I'm really happy that you like my blog :)
      About your description you could be a Soft Autumn but to make it sure please, send me a couple of photos to taggica@gmail.com :) and I will check it.

  4. Hi! I love your palettes! :)
    Someone recently told me that I'm a Soft Autumn, and well I'm ok with it, colors in the SA palette are nice, but I'm not entirely convinced I could be a Soft Autumn. I have rather dark hair and it contrasts with my skin way more than in most Soft Autumn celebrities. Would you be so kind to give me a second opinion? :)

    1. Hello,
      I'm happy that you like my color palettes :)
      Please, send me a couple of photos about your make-up free face to taggica@gmail.com and I'll check which seasonal color palette is the best for you.

    2. Awww thank you. I will do that. :)

  5. Hi,
    I found your site thinking I'm a soft-autumn.. but now i'm not sure, so back to square one (even though you've made it a lot easier to understand)
    Naturally I have mousy brown hair which I dye to blonde, with dark brown eyes and warm undertones. What do you think? - Laura

    1. Hi Laura,
      thanks for reading my blog.
      Only about description, it's hard to tell which is your seasonal color palette and I don't want to give you false information so please, send me a couple of photos about your make-up free face to taggica@gmail.com and I'll check your colors :)

  6. À votre avis ? Soft autumn ou soft summer ??? Bravo pour votre blog élise de France

  7. What kind of light shows you your true season? Does sunlight?

  8. I had natural light brown hair,i dyed it golden blonde.I have fair skin with green hazel eyes.

  9. Hi Agnes,

    I have been trying to understand my coloring for quite some time. I have hazel green eyes, light brown/dark blonde hair, almost black eyebrows, and neutral light complexion with pink and sometimes yellow undertones. Can you help me based on this info or should I send a pic?

    1. Hello Tatiana,
      thank you for reading :)
      Yes, send me a couple of photos about your makeup free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com and I'll check your seasonal palette.

  10. I already know I am a soft autumn, but I'm still not sure, despite your advice. I have a bright white and red dress, and I look very, very good in it. Or at least not bad, if I can believe more less everyone around me. If you're right, a soft autumn isn't supposed to look good in a snowwhite and bright red dress, isn't it? Also, there are moments my hair looks very (veeeeery) ginger.

  11. Dear Agnes, I loved your post but it also made me confused since know I don't know if I'm soft summer or autumn aaaah :( could you help a sister out? I've scheduled an appointment at a salon and I'm not sure which shade should I pick. Thank you so much!

  12. I'm so confused , I feel my eye color and natural hair color matches Soft Autum, but I just can't be sure . My hair is mousy medium ash brown with copper highlights in the sun . My eyes are a watery green with a grey blue rim ( I've herd that is a summer trait ) I also have some slight rust flecks if light is shines in my eyes . My skin looks somewhat nuetrual my veins in the wrist are neither blue nor green , more of a real , my complexion seems warmer than cooler with a few freckles on my shoulders etc .

    I've tried to decide which season I am forever it seems . I've been analyzed a autumn and a soft summer . Lol I think I might just be a soft autumn . Still not sure .

  13. I'm also confused!

    A friend's mother was starting up in the colour analysis business closer to two decades ago and signed me up as a test patient-- the result was some variation of soft summer. I've worn cool colours for most of my life, partially out of preference, but IDK, something isn't right there.

    Let's see... I have extremely pale skin (most drugstore foundations run too dark for me in the winter) with decidedly yellow and olive undertones to the point where it took me twenty years (!) to find a foundation that really matches. I did, and the shade I wear is advertised "for very pale tones with very light yellow undertones"... that's warm, no? Whatever else it may be, this foundation is a miracle after years of wearing pink foundation that was never quite right! Other than that, I tan into a nice bronze shade and tolerate sun much better than you'd expect for someone with skin this pale, although I tend to get a little pink for a few hours after sun exposure. No freckles. Gray-green eyes with yellow flecks. Strawberry blonde hair as child that darkened to a somewhat mousy light brown but turns into a warmer blonde when the sun bleaches it... and since I'm lazy and low maintenance, I let that happen. :-) And gold jewelry works better on me, although silver doesn't look awful either.

  14. Hi I just took the quiz and came out strongly autumn and soft autumn. But I am 58 and now have very silver grey salt and pepper hair and my hazel eyes are now more muted grayish hazel. There are no greys on the autumn palette so should I borrow grey colours to go with my hair from soft summer? Thanks

  15. Hi Agnes, can you please help...I have been trying to get to know my season and quite frustrated now. Can I send you my photos?

  16. I have been so confused for so long about my colors! I'm pretty sure I'm a soft autumn or soft summer. My natural hair color in my youth had red highlights in the sun. My eyes are hazel with green & gold. My veins inside my wrists are green and blue. But my skin is very pink and I can't wear orange or gold well. Help!!

  17. I think I am a soft autumn. Can anyone help me tell if I am indeed one?

  18. I am wondering if I am a soft autumn (the test gave me a different result though, but I wasn't sure about my answers.) I have medium brown hair with reddish/blondish accents (maybe chestnut brown?), greyish green eyes and light skin with a yellowish undertone. I have practically black eyebrows.
