Have you ever asked yourself why some colors pop up our skin tone while other colors don’t? The reason is just simple, choosing a color for your clothes depends on three main factors: eye color, hair color, and skin tone. Based on how dark or light these three elements are, we have four main categories for one’s color palette. This color palette determines the outfits, accessories, or makeup. The 4 main color palettes are named after the 4 seasons of the year; Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer. This is because we usually associate certain colors with certain seasons.  Each season is broken down into 3 subtypes depending on how vivid or muted are the colors you should wear. It’s fine to wear within your main season but the most flattering colors are within your subtype. Let’s check them out:  

 Winter:
