About This Quiz

Did you know that beauty experts can predict which colors will heighten your natural beauty and which ones will fall flat? These experts consider skin tone, hair color and eye color, then use a time-tested system of matching colors to create your personal palette. People who know these secrets can use the colors of their clothes and makeup to bring out the beauty always present in their hair, eyes and skin. 

Beauty experts can look over your particular hair and complexion combination and match you with your color season. The four seasons each go with a color palette that brings out the beautiful hues unique to each season. Associating colors with seasons may seem obvious—after all, nature gives us some pretty clear color choices to go with each! But matching those colors with people’s personalities is a little less obvious. That’s why you can hire a personal color expert for your own fashion advice.

Color, of course, is not just about beauty but is also connected to how we feel and how we perceive the world. People can use color personalities to define their company brand as well as their personal fashion sense. Tapping into your color personality may tell you more about yourself than what you should wear. Read on to unlock your ideal color potential!
