Please note: Do not worry too much if one characteristic of your appearance deviates from the below descriptions. You may still fall into this colour season if your overall appearance matches the profile.
The following images are examples of Light Springs. You may look different but still be a Light Spring.
You are a Light Spring if the dominant characteristic of your overall appearance is light, and the secondary characteristic is warm – meaning warm colours suit you better than cooler ones.
When you look in the mirror, the first thing you notice about your colouring is that there is very little contrast between your skin, eyes, and hair. All of your features are very light.
This means that if you have dark eyes or dark hair, but you aren’t a person of colour, then you are most likely one of the darker seasons. If you are a person of colour, but you have very light colouring for your ethnicity, you may be a Light Spring.
In addition, your skin, eyes, and hair have mainly warm – golden or peachy – undertones.
Light Spring eyes are, of course, light. They come in light blue, green, hazel, and light brown. Like all Spring eyes, they are bright and have warm undertones. You might also notice the typical Spring sunburst pattern on the iris.
Light Spring skin is also light and ranges from fair to medium (I to III on the Fitzpatrick scale). Light Spring skin is either neutral or has neutral-warm undertones – which means that both gold and silver look good against it, but gold looks better. The skin may have golden or peach undertones. Light Springs can also have freckles.
The primary characteristic of Light Springs is lightness. Therefore, the hair of this sub-season is naturally also light. It ranges from light to medium golden blonde, light red (strawberry blond to light copper), and light golden brown. Whatever the shade, the hair has warm, golden undertones or highlights. Most Light Springs were also fair-haired as children. (If you are a darker ethnicity, it could also be medium brown).
Light Spring is a sub-season of very low contrast between skin, hair, and eyes. There is even a low contrast between the iris and whites of the eye. In the images below, you can see how little difference in shades there is between the features. There are no dark areas anywhere.
Light Spring vs Light Summer
Having the least saturated and softest of the Spring family’s colouring, Light Springs are light and warm and have a delicate appearance.
They can easily be confused with Light Summers since both sub-seasons’ dominant characteristic is light. Both sub-seasons also have the same low contrast between hair, skin, and eyes. The distinguishing characteristic between them is their secondary characteristic – Light Spring is warm, whereas Light Summer is cool.
Light Spring features have warm undertones with golden and peach pigments.
Light Summer, on the other hand, has cool undertones with light blue and grey pigments.
