Dramatic Summer Makeup

Even the most dramatic 'Summers' are not as high contrast as a Winter. Summers have a softer look even if hair and eyes are very dark. Summer colors are slightly warmer, or more grayed or powdered versions of the more intense tones that Winters wear so well.

Summers are genetically the smallest color group. Skin tends to be lighter or pinker than most winters. Dramatic Summers look less dramatic standing next to a winter. Charcoal gray is a better choice than black. Off-white is better than pure white. Mid tones and cool pastels near the face are better than intense tones that a Winter can wear so well.

Even dark eyed, dark haired Summers need to lighten up around the face. Soft scarves and brushed silver jewelry are good choices. Summers look best in soft fabrics, romantics patterns and styles. Winters look great in tailored or more dramatic angular fashion lines.
