Dina also explained how contrast and softness can come into play when determining someone’s season.
Contrast is the second key component of the color analysis, according to Dina, and it looks at values — the lightness and darkness between your eyes, skin, and hair.
Contrast, she explained, is something people can change with things like makeup, hair dye, or colored contacts.
My hazel eyes match my dark brown hair pretty closely, but my skin is fair. Those factors make me medium-to-high contrast, according to my color pro.
If my eyes were icy blue, I could be higher contrast. If my skin was darker, I could be lower contrast.
The final key component of this analysis came down to softness versus clarity.
Dina said softness looks more at similarities, like brown hair and hazel eyes. Clarity looks more at a stark, defined contrast — like black hair and blue eyes.
Since my hair color is similar to my eye color, Dina said, I have a lot of softness.
