Skin tones are classified into four distinct palettes, each falling under either warm or cool tones.

Spring and Autumn are part of the warm tones, while Summer and Winter fall under the cool tones. Here’s a guide to help you differentiate between the four skin tones:

  • Spring: A warm undertone with a delicate, peachy glow, complemented by shades of coral, turquoise, and warm pastels.
  • Summer: A cool undertone with a touch of rosy or blue hues, harmonising well with soft blues, pinks, and lavenders.
  • Autumn: Boasting warm undertones, leaning towards golden or peachy hues, and are complemented by earthy shades like olive, rust, and mustard
  • Winter: A cool undertone with a hint of blue or pink, creating a striking contrast with jewel tones like emerald, sapphire, and royal purple.

Understanding these distinct characteristics can help you make more informed choices when it comes to selecting the right makeup shades that will enhance your natural beauty.

Now, let’s get to the fun part. TikToker Sandra (@sandrarutht) shows us how to get a free colour analysis using ChatGPT in just four easy steps.

How to Determine Your Colour Season with ChatGPT:

Step 1: Take a Selfie

Tap on a section of your face without strong shadows or highlights, preferably the mid-cheek area, as suggested by Sandra (@sandrarutht on TikTok).

Use the marker to fill in your face for a clearer view of the chosen colour against your skin tone.

Step 3: Retrieve Your Skin Tone Colour Hex Code
