Making the most of your natural coloring can be easy when you consider the concept of seasonal beauty. Many women know which “season” they are: your own coloring dictates which category you’ll fall into.
Buying accessories such as Irish jewelry can be a lot more fulfilling when you know it will flatter your own individual skin tone, eye color, and hair color.
We’ve compiled some guidelines to help you figure out which season you are, and which specific rings, earrings, and pendants will work best on you. Here is a quick guide to finding your “season”:
Women born under this season have a yellowish or golden undertone to their skin. Whether you are of fair ivory or golden tan complexion, you’ll probably find yourself gravitating towards colors like sunny yellow, khaki, periwinkle, and cream.
For makeup, soft honey tones and corals will be your best shades.
Many women who are Springs have green eyes with a golden sunburst near the pupil, and they often have blond or golden brown hair. There are also light brown-eyed and blue eyed Springs.
In general, there is not much contrast between your hair, skin, and eye color: everything blends together, and you are more light than dark.
For you, clear colors with a touch of yellow will flatter you and make you look a lot younger and healthier.
Look inside your wrist to see if your veins are bluish or greenish. Greenish veins are a clue that your skin tone is warm. For you, bright kelly or emerald green will be a couple of your best colors.

Stunners like the late Grace Kelly, with her sleek hair and pale skin, are found under this season. Kelly was known for the icy-blue dress she wore to collect her Oscar.
The veins inside your wrist will be blue in tone, not greenish, and you may not tan very well. Milky white skin with a touch of rose undertone will be one clue that you are a summer.
Eyes can be blue or green, but they will probably have a cool cast (blue-grey or bottle green) and no golden sunburst near the pupil. Lavender, mauve, and magenta will be great colors for your makeup.
You probably wear a lot of purple tones, and you look great in chocolate brown, hot pink, and pure white (not cream).

Rich and warm, the autumn woman’s coloring is reminiscent of falling leaves and bonfires. Many redheads are found under this season, but there are lots of brunettes as well. If you’re blonde, it’s very unlikely that you are an autumn.
Brown eyes with hints of amber or cinnamon can be a hallmark of this season: you may even have freckles. Colors like burnt orange, tobacco, and mustard will bring out the beauty of your warm coloring.
You will probably avoid hot pink or other brighter, colder tones, because they will tend to wash you out. Your makeup choices will include gold, amber, cinnamon, and brick red.

Your eyes can be light or dark, but they will always have a jewel brightness and their color will be pure, not multicolored or muted.
You probably have dark hair, and you gravitate towards shades like scarlet, black, pure snowy white, and royal blue. With makeup, clear red lips will be a devastating choice for you, and you will always prefer black mascara over muddy brown.
