This post is part of a series outlining the basics of each seasonal color palette. If you’re looking to become acquainted with the palettes, this is a good place to start.

Common Presentations of Bright Spring

Bright Spring, like all seasons, has a huge range in terms of what they can look like. These Bright Spring celebrity examples are merely a guess, since we can’t know what they would look like in real life with every season tried following proper methodology, however in photos they resemble exemplars I have personally seen. Please keep in mind that any season can present with any hair, skin and eye color.

Bright Spring Hair Colors: These can range from medium-light blonde to medium brown. The average natural color is probably a medium-light brunette. The hair colors in this season are clear and translucent, often with coral or golden undertones, though may appear ash brown or blonde next to darker or duller colors. Red hair can occur in any season, but is especially common in the bright seasons, as red is the brighter of the two pigments that naturally give hair it’s color.

Bright Spring Eye Colors: Green and blue eyes occur frequently in this season, and eye colors that sit between blue and green may be most common of all. Brown eyes are less common, and tend to be lighter with bits of green and gold in them. Eyes of any color in this season commonly have a bit of yellow in them at close distance.

Bright Spring Skin tones: Bright Winter skin tones range from the fair to medium, in almost equal amounts, with medium-light tones being perhaps a bit more common. Cheeks may often be flushed with pink, giving the impression of a cooler person. Those who appear lighter may be taken for summer blends, as the influence of winter in the person is not always obvious. Conversely, those with brown hair and eyes may often be mistaken for either winter due to their higher apparent contrast or autumn due to their apparent depth and warmth.

Finally, Bright Spring colors are warm-neutral. Those with bright spring coloring can wear a range of colors where some choices will be warmer and others cooler, however overall the suit colors that lean towards warmth.

  1. I’ve been analyzed as Clear spring, soft winter and another time I was told I was an autumn. these weren’t from some online questions. I had to take pics. send childhood pics, hold cards up to my face, etc and email them. All at hefty prices which I was okay with. I did this because I have no idea if I’m cool or warm. A makeup artist once told me I have a strange coloring. And really it’s not so much for the right color clothes to wear. I pretty much know what looks terrible and what looks good on struggle is makeup and haircolor. Any suggestions?

  2. Shannon, I am not a colour consultant, but someone like yourself, who spent ages trying to find the correct colour group I belonged to. I came up with all sorts of suggestions in the quest. I did some of the same things as you, sending pics to someone online, and honestly, this is little different from answering those questions you mention. THE only way to find the correct group, in the end, is by going to a good person, who can drape you in person, as I finally resorted to. No one can see the nuances of how colours reflect onto you face etc, from photos, it has to be up close and actually in front of you, so you can see those results as well. Sorry, this is not much help, but saving up for a great consultation is so much better in the end than wasting your money on numerous cheaper alternatives.

  3. I have been analyzed as a true spring with clear spring as secondary. I have always felt closer to tbe clear spring palette and am not comfortable with the warmer colours in my palette. I now have silver hair and would like to have your opinion on colours I should wear. I have light blue/ green/ grey eyes and I have very little contrast in my features at all. Thank you
