Light Autumn & Light Spring, plus a Light Autumn Birthday

Are you a light autumn or a light spring?

If your coloring falls into the light category, then that means that your coloring is light for your ethnicity, and your best color palette is going to have colors that have been tinted with white and are low to medium range in intensity and contrast.

Light Autumn

If you are a light autumn, then your coloring is too warm and deep for spring but lighter than the other autumn seasons. Here is my mother's light carmine autumn color palette...


Notice that her color palette has similar light colors but is warmer than the light spring color palettes.

Light Spring 

If you are a light spring, then your colors need to have clarity, but need to be lighter than the other spring seasons' palettes.

Here is a light animated spring palette...




And here is a light opalline spring palette...


































Light Autumn Birthday Celebration...

My mother's birthday was last week and my son and I surprised her by celebrating it early. She thought we were just going out to lunch, but didn't know there would be presents and such! We had a great time!!




I am linking up today to Jill at Glamamom for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Tuesday, it's time for another link up with Real Girl Glam for Real Girl Style. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, and to Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday.





So what do you think? Are you a light autumn or a light spring?

  2. I don't think I'm a light autumn, but I think I'm an autumn... if that makes sense.

    1. Hi Alicia! Yes, that totally makes sense. Probably, there aren't all that many light autumns, but I think a lot of women of color are autumns, in general.
