The Colour Me Beautiful concept of the 4 basic seasons is a great way to classify your best colour tones. This is based on four colour types: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
These factors are dependent upon the undertones of your skin, eyes, and hair and how light or deep your overall colouring and hair.
Thanks to Anuschka Rees, these are the four classifications in detail to better understand these 4 basic seasons and identify what category you fit in :
Skin tones: Clean, warm undertone- on the lighter end of the skin spectrum
Hair: Lighter or strawberry blonde to medium brown with golden or red undertones
Eyes: Clear blues and turquoise, green and light brown/golden
Colors that look best on you: Light peach, green, blue and yellows work best with your features
