Have you ever noticed that when you do a google search about seasons, you'll find one celebrity pic on various seasonal analysis sites. For example, on one site, Jennifer Lopez is seen as a Soft Autumn, yet on another site, she's True Autumn or Soft Summer? What about Julian Moore and Marcia Cross? Sometimes they are used as classic True Autumn types and other times, they are in the 'Spring' Category? What gives??? Well, I just came across a few interesting photos of myself on various sites. One one site, someone said I was a soft autumn, on another my photo was used as a typical 'clear spring'??? On my own blog, I've been everything under the sun LOL - so what can one conclude about this? I personally think that colour analysis, just like beauty is in the EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. In fact, I feel like I finally have PROOF - We've all been exposed to the Gold and White VS Black and Blue dress photo that's been all over the internet. How is it that we can look at the same photo and each see something so different? In my experience, I can post so many makeup looks and everyone is going to see something different. I can also see celebrities sporting different makeup looks - some I will like, others I wont. Another person may like something I don't or see something I don't. Does that make either or us right or wrong? Everything depends on how we look at things and in all honestly, there is no right or wrong - there is only our 'interpretation' of it!

If I've learned anything about colour, the way we see it, the way we judge others based on colour, I've learned some important lessons: 1) Wear what YOU love 2) Wear what YOU know looks great, regardless of outside opinions 3) TRUST your own colour judgement 4) Never stop experiementing, playing around and learning about colour 5) Remember - its YOUR colour journey - be the Hero of your own story - OWN your experience!!!

Hi Anonymous - that's actually a photo of me in the early 80's lol - but I definitely had that tom boy look, so I totally can see how you'd think I look like a boy :)
