^ Or you could be a Summer ... beige is not going to look good on Summer/Winter, and is often difficult even for Spring/Autumn, so no surprise there. "Ice" (pale pastels) are for Winter, because they have more intense coloring. Pale colors *can* wash a pale person out ...

I suggest anyone whose fancy has been struck by this thread buy the book that stilettogirl mentioned "color me beautiful". I did and I brought it to work and it's such a hit. Even the 80's pics. Very interesting and now when we're slow everyone reads it and even the (few) straight men are trying to figure out their colors. It's reallly interesting.

Yes, I think I might be summer more than winter, as pastels definetily wash me out. I am not the palest of the pale persons, but I do have a very Scandinavian skin tone. I guess I would be categorized as pale although I am not the palest over here.

^I did that twice and they gave me the same inaccurate results. They told me I was jennifer lopez!

Sometimes I feel like a freak with my coloring. Is it common to have cool hair and warm skin? I'm actually not positive about my hair coloring. It's like a pale brownish black.

I'm mainly of scandinavian descent, so my skin is fair (a pretty warm tone). But my hair just kinda came out of nowhere. I've noticed that olive green makes me look ill. The worst color on me has to be a light steel blue. White isn't my friend either. My best are probably black, violet, crimson red and some shades of green.

Is there a catagory for genetic experiments?

I tried that color consultation on the website. It told me I was "muted" like Jessica Simpson, Elle MacPherson and Keira Knightley.

Well, my coloring is not like Jessica or Elle AT ALL, but it's actually pretty similiar to Keira's -- brown hair, hazel eyes (although I think hers might be brown) and pale skin that's somewhere in the middle of pink- and yellow-toned.

For my colors it gave the following:
Quote:
Complementary Colours
any muted, soft, rich, blended colours which are neither too cold nor too warm.
For near to face: dusty rose, aubergine, periwinkle blue, teal, soap green, sage green, air force blue, mustard Neutrals: soft grey, cocoa, charcoal, blue/grey, taupe, camel, khaki Best 'white': oyster white
Difficult Colours to Wear
Bright is your opposite colour so any colours that suit Bright colourings including fuchsia pink, royal blue, scarlet, emerald green.

Source: http://www.mullercolour.co.uk/site/results_muted.html

The "near to face" options I can get with, mostly. As for neutrals, I look washed-out in taupe, camel and khaki, so I don't know where they're getting that from. And I like and wear bright colors and have no plans to stop anytime soon.

Part two of the color consultation is some pop psychology junk about what your favorite color says about you, so I won't bother posting it.

I actually have an old-school copy of "Color Me Beautiful" (I found in the discard pile at the library), so I'll have to dig into it sometime soon. The pictures are retro ridiculousness.
