How do I get this quiz to work?

Agnes Turi said...

Hi Tara,
under the Try it now, you will like it! text it should appear and load after a few seconds -now it works for me... Maybe you will need to add an extension to your browser like flash player. And you could try to load it on your computer, it might not appear on tablet or mobile phone. I hope you can try it soon.

Unknown said...

sigh. This quiz doesn't really lead you to your true color type. Instead of asking what colors you "like" it should ask what colors you get compliments on! Many MANY people "like" colors that are horrible on them and do not reflect their true season.

Also, asking them who their celebrity look alike is just isn't a great idea. People like to think they look like someone they aren't.

This quiz is more for people who pretty much know their color season.

I would recommend NOT putting the answer in the question: ie: "if you choose Cool and Deep then answer this one"

Agnes Turi said...

Hello Unknown,
I'm sorry that you weren't satisfied with my test.

As the description says, this is a free and easy quiz to give you a direction/idea about your POSSIBLE color palette. It's not a professional color analysis and doesn't want to be!

In the first part, I ask questions about the color of your eyes, skin tone and hair and then one question about your flattering lipstick color and your best colors. As a color and image consultant, I know that people can like and wear a color that doesn't suit them but in my experience many women feel their right colors even thought they don't brave enough to wear them.

I think using celebrities as examples are important to give you a visual idea and/or face for each seasonal color palettes. I'm sure if someone has dark hair with dark brown eyes won't choose an actress to her look alike with blonde hair and light blue eyes even if she likes that person.

I choose to use the categories like "cool and deep" to help you understand you colors a lead you a little bit.

If you are interested to find your EXACT seasonal color palette I recommend to order my professional color analysis.

Juliet said...

Hi, I just took quiz - it told me Warm Autumn - which is what I had figured. I did do a professional colour analysis 10 years ago (brown eyes, auburn hair) - but she only listed the 4 seasons, I didn't know of these combo/blended individual palettes - so that you're actually one of 12 palettes (not just 4). I was also told teal was the only blue I could wear - but you're suggesting navy? I'll be a navy bridesmaid in May - so that will come in handy if true! Now that I've done this quiz I can't seem to do it again - I wanted to figure out what my 3 year old is (I took her into the garden this afternoon and draped my gold and silver jewellery over her, she loved it!) - she is very blonde and blue eyed so and looks good in pale lemon and blues and I'm pretty sure the silver looked better so I'm thinking Light Summer . . . but can't get the Quiz to 'start again'.

Agnes Turi said...

Hello Juliet,
thank you so much for taking my quiz.
About your description you could be an Autumn woman and yes, navy is a kind of universal color that means every seasonal color women can wear it well. Think about the doctors in the TV show Grey's Anatomy. The senior doctors wear that great navy colored clothes for surgeries and I think everybody looks great in them. So you will be a fabulous bridesmaid in a navy dress :)

Sara Alicea said...

I have light pink skin, freckles, neutral-ish undertones, light brown hair, and dark brown eyes. I feel like a mix of every season! How do I know for sure?

Dunja Kovacevic said...

After restless research on the internet, and contemplating on giving my last money on color analysis, I think I analyzed myself and I am satisfied with it. I am a winter with secondary autumn, although confusing because I am not that deep and almost everywhere on the internet they call the type deep winter autumn. If you put that deep characteristic aside it fits like a glove. Second thing is my personality is completely winter with the secondary outgoing autumn, melancholic-choleric. Sometimes some people might look at first glance as an autumn like Eva Longoria, especially if they are ethnic but she is actually a spring, just look at her striking bright red-carpet appearances (this is also according to Jane Rhekas who has her own site http://expressingyourtruth.blogspot.rs/p/color-analysis.html). The test I find not so bad, and I am not surprised that I am a soft summer according to it. I think only that celebrities are very misleading because many of them are misdiagnosed here. Sorry

Nici said...

I have dark brown (almost black) hair with golden undertones, very pale skin with yellow undertone and hazel eyes. What does that make me, warm autumn or deep autumn? I think I am deep autumn, but my almost white pale skin confuses me :(

Agnes Turi said...

Hello Nici,
about your description I would also think about Clear Spring that is a quite variable season and could have darker hair color as well.
If you send me one or two photos about your make-up free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com I will check it.

Agnes Turi said...

Hi Sara Alicea,
your colors sounds like a typical Soft season probably Soft Summer. If you send me one or two photos about your make-up free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com I will check it.

Unknown said...

Hi Agnes, thank you for the test - I liked it, but unfortunatelly it did not solved my "problem" to find out wheather I am soft muted summer or soft or deep autumn - the test told me: soft summer and soft autumn ... ? May I send you two photos to find out? (I'm trying to solve it for about a year or so... beeing curious what`s going on :) Wish you lovely days, Tereza

Agnes Turi said...

Hi Tereza,
thanks for trying my quiz. Yes, send me a couple of photos to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com I will check your color palette. Have a nice weekend!

LinLin said...

Great quiz! However, didn't really help me ... I am so confused. I have very fair skin with yellowy undertone (meaning NOT pink), but it is not warm either. I have few freckles, medium-brown hair with golden highlights and deep blue eyes with yellow spots around pupil. Seems like warm, right? Yet peachy corals dont suit me. Light gray and silver doest suit me. Tan doesn't suit me. But what does suit me are warm berry colors, burgundy, navy, light blue, dark green, dark gray. Which season am I? I really would like to learn what other colors suit me but am so confused, because neither warm neither cool look good on me ..

Agnes Turi said...

Hi LinLin, thanks for trying out my quiz.
Your description sounds like you're one of the Soft seasons and according to the colors that suit you, rather a Soft Summer. To be more certain, send me a couple of photos about your make-up free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com I will check your color palette.

Sharon b said...

Hi Agnes, I am reallly confused about my color type, the quiz says I am a soft summer. However other quizzes also suggested light or cool summer. Personally, I think light would fit quite well but I don't look that good in yellow or light greens and I do get quite tanned and do not get sunburnt easily.. Can you please help me to find out?
(BTW I really love your site, there are so many great tips and color palettes!)

Agnes Turi said...

Hi Sharon,
thank you for your comment and trying out my quiz. I think if you can tan you're probably not a Light season because their skin tone is usually quite pale and can burn easily. However, skin tone is just one characteristic that determine a seasonal palette. Also Soft Summer could be right because it's between the Light and Cool Summer palettes. To be more certain, send me a couple of photos about your make-up free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com and I will check your color palette.

Sandra Roberts said...

This quiz claims I am a "Soft Summer". I have pale yellow-white blond hair and green eyes with golden specks (which I would conclude as being warm eyes). My undertone is pink, but my skin has a very light golden cast. Is this telling the truth, or just a gag quiz?

Agnes Turi said...

Hello Sandra,
thank you for trying out my quiz. About your description, you could be a Soft Summer or one of the Light seasons. At the end of the test, it suggests you 3 possible options. What were the others?
As I mentioned above, this quiz is not a professional color analysis just a fun test to give you an idea or a direction about your possible seasonal palette.
You can send me a couple of photos about your make-up free face to 30somethingurbangirl@gmail.com and I will check your color palette.

Linda Winchell said...

Agnes,
I am sorry to be a bother but I have been struggling with trying to determine if Im a clear winter or cool winter. Im redoing my wardrobe as I return to the corporate world after doing volunteer work for a non profit and being a mom for years. I really want to get this right. I will send a picture and see if you can make the final call on it so I can go forward. Thank you so much!

kaitte said...

I just took this quiz, the results have all my features wrong..
I'm not an ash brown or anything ash.
I used be a dark Auburn, now I'm silver light pepper
My skin tone is porcelain, ivory
My eyes are hazel green, grey, brown
I chose these answers as close as it would let me, all of them on your answers were wrong..


Agnes Turi said...

Hi Kaitte,
thanks for trying out my quiz. The quiz has 6 questions so I can imagine that on the other 3 about which colors suit you the best, you maybe chose rather cool shades. As a result, your main suggested seasonal palette is one of the cool seasons with ashy characteristics.
At the end of the test, it suggests you 3 possible options. What were the others?
You can retake the quiz anytime you want if you wish.

Vicky said...

I took the quiz 3 times and tried really hard to check the boxes that I believed based upon pics given as examples, to be true~~I was amazed, because I came out to be the season I always felt I was, but I didn't seem to fit the criteria for it~~the lipstick was very easy for me to choose, as was the foundation~~the results, accompanied by a detailed analysis, really did fit me! So glad I took this quiz; it is a much better, more in depth quiz than others offered online~~very happy!

Vicky said...

I took this quiz 3 times, and tried very hard to check the box that I thought was true for me each time (I wasn't positive I was being objective about myself, but, in the end, I had to answer the same way for all the questions except 1)~~~all 3 times I ended up being the season I thought I was, but had never seem to fit the criteria to be in the past~~this quiz gives great examples, and great, detailed text to help you choose~~when my results came up, I was happy! Bring on the lipstick and foundation!

Vera said...

Hello, there came to me that I can be warm, but also soft autumn. I have dark brown hair, slightly golden reflections are lawful for me, paler complexion when I'm tanned, with a little pink, easily blush, badly sunbathe, always ahead burn red, then get brown, I have a lot of freckles - on hands and face, more on hands - golden-brown, in summer time seems to me that I have more, hazel eyes - greenish-brown, mottled with dark gray circuit. I know that does not suit me normal orange, I am not wear. I like military green, khaki, marsala, powdery pink, body color, brown, banana yellow, navy blue, beige, animal prints - leopard, zebra in any case. I think I am rather soft autumn ....... Please what do you think?

Here's a strange phenomenon - I have medium deep neutral skin, my eyes were once deep brown and now are a deep hazel, my hair (if I left it alone)would be 20% silver at the front only and the rest is now a deep ash brown. When I was young, though, it was a golden brown but I was out in the sun all the time, rain, hail or shine, if I hold my plait I kept from my first haircut at 13 against my daughters plait we kept from her first haircut at 13 it is identical. Yet the hairdresser tells me her hair is called ash grey and I see it as a mousy neutral brown, however, it looked quite different on me, because I had deep dark eyes and deep skin. My skin is a dusky brown when I go out in the sun... with all that in mind, I have been personally to get my colours done and they always veer between toned winter or dusky, warm, deep. Yet, when I did my wardrobe to those colours I was so bored and didn't have the slightest desire to wear them or get dressed even! It was a dressing gown or gym gear day for months. Lately I have gone to brighter colours and at last feel like I love my clothes again and WANT to get dressed. Autumn colours are drab and dirty, winter colours are too bright and black is beautiful as long as I have plenty of skin showing. Hairdressers have been telling me for 3 years that my hair needs to be chocolate, my own hair would be "like having molasses tipped over my head" so the ageing process, the colour changes in my eyes and the slight fading of my skin and the desire to know who I am, and seeing colour specialists has left me totally bewildered! Totally! The palette one gave me was all greens and browns and a few spartan reds and oranges or corals. The other was a mish mash and I was on the cusp of completely neutral and was just warm with high contrast like Princess Mary apparently. The whole thing is so confusing and yet, if you want to know, if you desire to know, if you are slowly going mad not knowing, its likely you'll be typed a different thing altogether and send you to the nut house. Now lipstick is not a good sign because as we age (50 in November) our lipstick needs to soften. Years ago I would wear red without the slightest concern, but now at my age, even though I am told daily I look 30ish, it feels wrong. These famous beauties, if you look them up, eg: Eva Longoria, she is naturally cool deep and they all have dyed hair and makeup. So, the basic gist is that one cannot tell by a quiz who they are. Its not fun either, because the answers can cause you to buy things that look hideous on you or revamp a wardrobe into something you hate also. I have been told I am an enigma ~ know what that means? Hard to fathom. And age can take you anywhere from your original colours. Stress in life can send you grey or lose hair colour. IN fact stress can take your hair completely. So, how can one know if this is an exact science that can be relied upon to buy clothes that cost money?
I was told in a boutique that I was a spring and we often wear black.
In antoher boutique I was told I am warm but should stick to reds, muted oranges, true corals and the warmer, brighter colours nothing deep or dowdy like khaki. And chocolate brown, no way! I end up brown hair, brown eyes, brown skin and brown colours - no variant. So who the heck in this system of pay and get analysed continually am I?

dali badgett said...

Hey Agnes ... My whole life I've been diagnosed as a winter, but I'm not so sure.. I have very dark neutral brown hair that leans towards gold, very dark cool brown eyes. And very pale neutral skin that leans towards yellow.
I look nasty in khaki and burnt colors, great in Most winter colors like bright pink, royal blue however..I think fushias, many lavenders or grey all notorious cool tones don't do much for me. I do look fantastic in lite bright yellows and watermelon.. Dull, very dark or very lite green don't do much for me either my best green is Kelly, a mid-very bright green tone. Please help. Everyone always naturally assumes I'm a winter.. But I think people are not 100 % right...

Anonymous said...

This quiz is very helpful. I was told in the 90s I was a Winter but my mother always said I was a Summer. I am definitely cool and cannot wear any warm colors or gold jewelry without looking sick. But I have always been so close between Winter and Summer that I almost could go either way. I took this quiz and came out Cool Summer primarily with secondary Cool Winter. I have always found many Winter colors to be "too much" for me even though I "look like" a Winter, the clearer and darker Summer colors are my best. My hair is medium ash brown with some cool highlights (naturally), and I have pink/porcelain skin that blushes, both are Summer but my eyes are darker grey-green/hazel that would put me in the Winter category. Most of my best colors and the colors I am instinctively drawn to are darker Summer colors, but a few fall into Cool Winter. I get more compliments in Cool Summer colors, though. I do love wearing black but mostly away from my face. When I dyed my hair Winter dark I was told by coworkers that I looked washed out. About the darkest I can go with my hair and not look gothy pale is level 6 ash brown. My dad and my husband always tell me they don't like me in black near the face, they always prefer me in blues. Red lipstick also looks harsh on me. I do look really good in light blue and silver together and always get compliments. My best lipstick is also a more medium/muted pinky-purple color. So I think this quiz is very likely right on and I am indeed a Cool Summer.

Karen Courtney said...

I am a spring, I don't know for sure which variety. I have warm skin tones, no freckles, don't burn, warm light/med brown hair, gray blue eyes with no warm flecks or radiating white lines. I filled my wardrobe with peachy coral colors with rave reviews. I have let my hair go gray. It is a warm gray. I have no idea what colors look good now. The peaches are not as good as they were. Help?

Tig Allen said...

Ugh. I'm just as lost as I was before, it says i could be deep winter or deep autumn. I don't look like any of these celebrities at all. I'm half irish and half southern italian, leaning heavily towards italian. Dark olive green eyes with flecks of blue and brown ring around the pupil. Medium olive skin, very yellow to where no cover-up makeup usually matches, my veins appear blue at the thinnest area on my wrist, then change to green further up my arm/hand. My hair is dark ash brown (almost black) with no highlights and no red. My gray hair is turning pure white (not blonde) as I age. Orange shirts make me look really yellow and light blue shirts make me look pale. I look great in deep purples, deep forest green, deep red, black and dark brown. White makes me pale, ivory doesn't drain my color but still doesn't look great. Gold makes me look yellower, silver makes me look paler. I'm thinking I'm a "Deep Winter" but I don't look good in silver/white/blues, but look horrible in Autumn colors. The olive skin is really throwing me and I've tried every trick to figure out my season to no avail. What do I do from here?

Unknown said...

This was fun! I got soft summer. Makes sense, since I do look good in muted colors, but I also find I look good in bright pink so *shrug*.

Unknown said...

Well, when I was little I used to have golden-ish blonde hair which darkened and faded over the years to a mousy colour. Now my hair is dyed to a deep, warm brown colour. My eyes are deep dark brown, like coffee. My skin is light, when I put a white sheet next to it it's orangey, with red undertone. My veins are green. I really can't tell what my season type is...

Melina K said...

This quiz is obviously based on the "dominant trait" school of colour analysis (where you 1st decide the dominant trait, i.e. deep, light, soft etc.), whereas I subscribe to the Sci/Art & 12blueprints theory, where every season can have any hair, eye & skin colour, and the season is determined *only* by the effect that different colours have on one's skin, by which ones make it look its best. So I mainly tried this quiz just for fun :) But incidentally, every time I did it (3 times), the first 3 options did include one or two which actually might be my proper season :) (I have narrowed it down to a few, but not 100% sure yet.) Although, every time the first 3 options were partly different, depending on the slightly different answers to some of the questions, as for most of them different answers are possible, e.g. one can be flattered by several different groups of makeup & clothes shades! And for me, giving a totally honest answer to the first 3 questions, I'd be assigned to 3 different "dominant theory" groups: light & cool to nr 1 (hair colour), light & warm to nr 2 (eyes), and deep & warm to nr 3 (skin).
(I know I'm far from obvious to classify, and that's one reason I do subscribe to the Sci/Art colour theory, as I find it most accurate as it's not based on any one dominant feature. )

But even though my results were not *totally* off the mark (apart from suggestions of fully "cool" seasons), I do think this kind of self-analysing quiz can be misleading, as for most people it's difficult to really be objective about their best colours, unless they have long studied colour theory, and definitely not about which celebrity they look like, and many people may not look like any of them...! So maybe best to leave out the "which of these celebrities you look like" section, for better accuracy; just a suggestion :)
