Soft Summer is a Neutral Season whose colours (and those of its members) include a large portion of Summer and a smaller contribution from Autumn
Colours are neutral to cool, softly muted, and range from antique white to dark pewter.
For all of us, makeup looks most natural and healthy when we wear our flesh tones. For Soft Summer, these span within a gradient of soft coral to deeper mauve for blush and lip colours.
Grays (for neutral eyeshadow, eyeshadow highlight, and eyeliner) include handmade lace, lavender smoke, soft teal gray, cool rose brown, and smoky gray brown.
Together, these colours create the ideal composition of gently graduated colours, like banks of trees or flowers in a misty landscape.
The most attractive reflectivity in cosmetics ranges from matte to gentle frost, to replicate a finish that resembles cotton or flannel. The nature of the colours avoids extremes, though as always, shine is influenced by the woman and the occasion. Some women in the Soft Seasons wear moderate shine with more ease, though for everyone, the look should not appear as hard, cold, or frosty.
