Warm Spring

    You’re a Warm Spring if the undertones of your hair, skin, and eyes are distinctly warm and exhibit contrasts. When you look in the mirror, the first thing you notice is the warmth in your undertones. If you’re unsure whether you’re a Warm Spring type, feel free to book my Online Course for your DIY Seasonal Color Analysis.

    Warm Spring is the warmest color type in the light and clear Spring palette. Its main characteristic is “Warm,” with secondary features being “Clear” and “Light.”

    Sometimes determining your color type isn’t straightforward because you may not possess all the “typical characteristics.” That’s perfectly normal. If you are having problems, try my online course “DIY Seasonal Color Analysis“.

    Characteristics of the Warm Spring:

    The Warm Spring is closest to the basic Spring type. The key criterion is the warm, often golden undertone in the skin and hair. Medium contrasts are also characteristic.

    Skin: bronze, golden beige, ivory, or porcelain (with a golden undertone), freckles are common.

    Hair: light golden brown, coppery red, strawberry blonde, or deep golden brown.

    Eyes: Topaz hues, warm olive green, light hazel eyes, or blue.

    Colors Warm Spring Types Should Avoid:

    You should definitely avoid colors that are cool. You’ll never borrow colors from the Summer and Winter palettes. Even though Winter types are clear, the colors would not only be too dark but also too cool. Similarly, with the Summer palette, these colors are light, but besides being cool, they’re also too muted. The very muted and dark colors of the Deep and Soft Autumns usually don’t work either. Although these palettes are warm to varying degrees, they are both too muted, with darkness being their main or secondary characteristic.

    Color Types from Which Warm Springs Might Borrow:

    Warm Spring types can borrow from Clear and Light Spring as long as the colors are warm enough and not too light and clear. If you lean towards a darker type, unfortunately, the Light Spring palette is out of the question. Colors can also be borrowed from the palette of the sister type Warm Autumn, as long as they are not too dark and muted.

    After this wealth of information, you’re probably wondering how you can put it all into practice. Read on here about make-up and clothing for Warm Spring!

    Warm Spring Make up

    The optimal Warm Spring makeup includes warm, clear, and medium-light colors. These should be rich in color depth (saturated). Avoid colors with cool pink or bluish undertones, as they are too cool for you and can make you appear very pale.

    *In this post, you’ll also find product suggestions that suit your color type. Please note that there can be no guarantee that all the suggested products will universally flatter you. Often, certain features may be a little “atypical” โ€“ for example, you may be clearer or lighter than average. So, choose your favorite products from my suggestions, taking your uniqueness into account. If you’re unsure, it’s better to order sample sizes first or take my online course to find out if you’re atypical.

    Warm Spring Make up Colors

    Foundation & Concealer

    Choose foundation and concealer according to your skin tone. Warm Spring types usually have a warm skin tone with golden undertones. Foundations with yellow undertones usually work well. Foundations based on pink and blue tones may not work for you as they are too cool. Avoid matte foundations or finishes as they may make you appear “washed out”.

    Finishing Powder

    Choose a finishing powder that matches the tone of your foundation. If your favorite brand doesn’t offer warm shades, opt for a translucent powder. Opt for at least a satin finish and avoid matte powders.

    Bronzer, Contouring & Highlighter

    As a warm type, you can use bronzer effectively. Bronzer should accentuate the warmth in the skin, which is abundant in Warm Spring types. Just make sure it matches your skin tone and enhances your spring-fresh appearance. The same applies to contouring. It’s better for Spring types to highlight certain areas with a highlighter rather than contouring to add depth to others. If you want to contour, use a powder foundation that is slightly darker than your normal shade but has the same undertones instead of a specific contouring product.

    *To keep the number of products manageable, I recommend only selected brands that I particularly like. If you prefer other brands, you can surely find corresponding colors with a little research. When you click on the link, you will be directed to my Pinterest board where I have listed the products for you. On the computer, you can hover over your desired product with the mouse and click on the link that appears. On your mobile device or in the app, first click on your desired product, and after it opens, click on “Visit”. This will open the corresponding shop in a new window. If you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission as a thank you for the recommendation. You won’t incur any extra costs, and I can maintain my free offering on color types.

    Eyeshadows

    Use warm, well-pigmented eyeshadows that complement your appearance. Cool and vibrant colors can make you look quickly painted or sick. For accents, you can use the colors from the Warm Spring color palette, and for base colors, use the colors from the Neutral Colors for Warm Spring color palette. Avoid matte colors and prefer shimmering tones. These harmonize better with your clear appearance. These colors may seem too intense at first glance, but they will harmonize wonderfully with your warm, clear appearance.

    Mascara

    Strictly speaking, I should recommend not using black mascara since black is always cool. Your best color is a warm brown. However, if you feel most comfortable with black mascara, feel free to use it.

    Eyeliner & Kajal

    Eyeliner or kohl that harmonizes with your eye color is always best. You can find suitable warm colors on the Makeup Card for Warm Spring. Avoid dark or cool colors. Black is unfortunately too extreme and cool for you. Instead, opt for a warm, dark brown or green. Such colors are rarely available in pencil form. Instead, use powder (eyeshadow), which you can apply with an eyeliner brush.

    Blush

    The choice of your blush depends on how dark you are. If you are a lighter Warm Spring, go for the lighter shades. If you are a Warm Spring with darker skin, choose the darker shades. Also, the dark lipstick shades suit you. In any case, make sure your blush has warm, peachy undertones. Avoid cool pink tones, blue-based colors, or matte blushes. Shimmer suits you better.

    Lipstick

    Warm, “medium-intensity” colors suit you best. These should also have a shimmer, gloss, or satin finish. Avoid matte lipsticks and overly bright colors. Both don’t suit you. For “Nude Lips”, use the light warm tones on your palette that best match your natural lip color. “Normal” nude tones may be too cool for you.

    Daytime Makeup

    As mentioned with lipstick, your “Natural Makeup Look” consists of warm colors with shimmer or gloss. Other color types would look painted with Warm Spring colors, but they will harmoniously blend with your natural color palette. Always make sure to emphasize your lips slightly more than your eyes, as this suits the Warm Spring type best.

    Evening Makeup

    Base your evening makeup on your daytime look, but emphasize the eyes a little more and use a more intense lipstick.

    You can learn how to put together clothing, accessories, and jewelry suitable for your color type below.

    Warm Spring Clothing and Accessories

    The main characteristics of the Warm Spring are its warm overall impression and medium contrasts. Color selection and combination of Warm Spring clothing and accessories should reflect and complement these main characteristics to make the Warm Spring type look vibrant.

    This works very well with the combination of one of your dark colors from your Neutral Colors and a bright, accentuating color from your Accent Colors. Both you can find on your Digital Color Palette. You can also opt for colors that are adjacent on the color wheel (analogous colors), but make sure they differ significantly from each other. A better choice for you is a combination of colors that are far apart on the color wheel (e.g., complementary colors).

    Warm Spring Clothing Color Combinations

    Color Combinations Warm Spring Types Should Avoid

    All color combinations that have low contrasts, such as monochromatic colors (tone-on-tone), and combinations of your neutral colors are not suitable. Also, avoid combinations of exclusively light, less vibrant colors from your color passes. Since you belong to the clear Spring types, these “soft” combinations do not flatter you.

    Unfortunately, black does not flatter you either. Instead, opt for dark chocolate brown or very dark green-gray. White is already flattering for you due to your clarity, but a warm off-white instead of pure white flatters you much better because it’s warmer.

    I have described which colors you should generally avoid as a Warm Spring further up.

    Patterns and Prints for Warm Spring Clothing

    The same applies to patterns and prints for Warm Spring clothing as for color combinations. The best patterns are those consisting exclusively of Warm Spring colors. If only a very small part of the pattern consists of a color from a disharmonious color palette, the pattern will certainly flatter you. Avoid patterns with a predominant proportion of colors from other color palettes.

    Patterns with higher color contrasts suit you, but too low contrasts make you look “washed out”. It’s best to choose playful, creative patterns such as dots, circles, and natural elements like flowers, butterflies, and birds. Anything that looks hand-painted works great. Geometric, precisely repeating, or very small and very large patterns are not so ideal.

    You can find examples of patterns and prints in your Digital Color Palette.

    Appropriate Clothing for the Warm Spring Type

    You’re best off choosing appropriate clothing with the help of a color palette. You always have your Digital Color Palette with you. Simply place it on the garment you’ve chosen and see if the colors harmonize. At first, this may be a bit difficult for you, but over time, you’ll develop a good eye for which colors match and which don’t.

    For color combinations and matching patterns, my Digital Color Palette also help you further. If you want regular suggestions for clothing that suits your color type, feel free to follow me on Instagram.

    Jewelry for the Warm Spring Type

    Warm, shiny yellow gold suits Warm Spring types best. Avoid all matte and dark metals.

    Your best choice for gemstones are ruby, coral, fire opal, green tourmaline, and citrine.
