Elizabeth is an up and coming Color Analyst who has a great eye for this color analysis thing. She wanted my opinion about her coloring and she too was an easy one (as was the client in my previous post).
Neutral skin but definitely leaning cool. Soft blue-grey eyes. She was instantly recognizable as a Toned Summer.
Since Elizabeth was learning the 12 season system, I just labled her a general 'Soft Summer" but she and I are both going to be down in Fort Lauderdale Florida this October for some more training in the 4x4 Color System. I can't wait. In that system I would say she is a Toned Summer.
Sometimes the makeovers I do on Taaz.com need to be tweaked so I will finish things off in Photoshop. There I may lighten or darken colors and in her situation I took the 'de-saturate' brush to soften colors that were a little too strong. And that is exactly what Soft Summers are: "Pure (or Cool) Summers who are slightly de-saturated or muted.
See how the smokey blue eyeshadow really showcases her blue eyes? I used just a hint of pink on her cheeks and just slightly more color on her lips. Gorgeous!
Thanks for volunteering Elizabeth!
