Colours can be defined into 3 tones; Warm tone, Cool tone and Neutral.

Cool (pink, red or bluish undertones)
Warm (yellow, peachy, golden undertones)
Neutral (a mix of warm and cool undertones) 

Let's talk about the colours and tones with 4 seasons 

  1. Simple & modern: Winter  Cool
  2. Bright & Vividness: Spring Warm
  3. Mystique & Mellow : Autum Warm
  4. Fresh & Softness: Summer Cool



Spring is the return of color.  The skies seem bluer, the grass begins to grow again, and the flowers bloom, bursting open with color and fresh life.  The trees begin to bud and the birds and animals are very active.  The whole world seems to wake up from the long Winter’s nap.

Best Color: Ivory, Peach, Coral, Blood orange, Yellow, Navy, Lime, Lavender etc.

Key Point: Colour with yellow base 



Summer gives me fresh, cool and active atmosphere. Summertime really does you up to feel more joyful. 

Best colour: Soft white, sky blue, rose pink, pastel pink, water melon, lavender, light lemon, charcoal grey, mint, Bluish green, bluish grey, etc.

Key: Colour with white base 



Fall is the changing colours of the leaves. This provides opportunities to create leaf rubbings and other leaf related crafts. We can rake leaves together, which naturally leads to jumping in leaf piles! It can be a bit sorrow or gloomy.

Best colour: coffee brown, orange, lime, olive, gold, mustard, orange red, etc

Key: It is good to have goldish colour



Winter always makes me feel peaceful and zen. For some reason my sense of community and social responsibility is always stronger too. There's something a little magical about the winter seasons, knowing that things are in a cycle of life-death-rebirth and especially when it snows (even there is no snow in Auckland).

Best Colour: White, Black, Charcoal, Navy, Hot pink, Red, Light blue, Green, Purple, etc

Key: Colour with black or blue base


The personal colour depends on under skin tone, hair colour and eye colour. Especially for women, colour choice in cosmetic is very important.
