The Light Palette Collages - Light Spring and Light Summer

I decided to have a little bit of fun and return to some colour harmony collages.  I created 2 collages with me surrounded by the light palettes - light spring and light summer.  I still think that the Soft Autumn palette is my very best, but I can't help but love the light palette colours - or perhaps its just light palette envy!!!!  Anyhow, here are the collages, I'd love to hear what you think???  Is this 'yea' or 'nea'???

You have similar colors than me. So I think you are a summer, and actually my best colors are from the light summer palette. I am often miscategorized, because I need stronger and brighter colors, but not too dark, I am not a winter. I think I am between the summer and spring like you.

THank you for sharing - makes me want to revisit light summer again! I do have lighter eyes that seem to benefit from a more natural look! I will have to try some new light summer looks!!!

Hey Renata,
I also actually think you are no way a warm season - the warm coloring just wears you out.
Actually I would say, you might just be that Summer Soft Deep Velvety Type, think of Katie Holmes - I haven't managed to read your whole blog, so I don't know if you already checked it, but would definitely suggest you to do so!

Wish you luck on your color journey!!

(Actually I have just been in the opposite situation, I was sure to be Soft Summer, but ended being Light Spring Soft... ;)

Thank you so much MayaFae - I keep struggling with this one - I keep wondering if I'm somewhere between a true autumn and a deep winter - I'm definitely a 'neutral' of some sort, I've come to realize that my skintone 'appears' golden olive, but is probably a neutral cool - so thanks for vaildating that for me!!!

Hi Renata =)

My new technique was to make some photos with daily light, like the ones you have, and then put palettes directly near the face with all the colors (I used these palettes: http://diaryofacolouraddict.blogspot.de/2013/07/counterpoint-seasons-freedom-of-choice.html), so that you know the ones which blend most with your coloring are yours. And ît turned out I'm Soft Autumn ;)

And as you've published so many pictures of you I've done the same test for you too and think you are Soft Summer, I will send you all the tests and my comments via email - hope it helps!
