The Final Color Category - "Clear"

The last Color Category I want to focus on is "Clear".  A person who falls into this category has a notable contrast between hair color and skin color.  For example, a person with dark brown or black hair and very fair, light, or slightly medium skin tone would probably fall into this category. This person would likely have eyes that are bright green, blue, hazel or even a dark brown.

A great example of a "Clear" would be Disney's Snow White character with her dark hair, very fair skin, and blue eyes.  Two other examples are seen below:


Both of these photos show the beautiful contrast in color between the hair and skin of these two women.  Because of this contrast, a "Clear" can wear black & white combinations best. Notice how gorgeous the woman on the left looks in her black jacket and white blouse.  If a "Soft" or even a "Light" wore that, the color contrast would tend to overpower her. 

The best colors for "Clears" include:  bright blues, pinks, greens, purples, and reds.  Great neutral colors are black, charcoal gray, and navy.  Amazing colors to add interest and pop to your outfit might include hot pink, bright yellow, and a clear red.  Stay away from colors that are too soft or muted.  They tend to draw the energy from your face when you wear them.

Blessings to you.  As always, let me know if you have questions or thoughts about what color category you may fall into.
