Eyes: Dark brown, black-brown, dark hazel, dark green and some instances a very, deep and dark shade of blue
Hair: Black-brown, black, dark to deep chestnut, medium brown.
Skin: Can be quite pale, very dark, or anywhere in between. Bronze, black, olive, golden, golden beige and ivory. May have freckles. Usually a neutral or warm undertone, and if you have some cool undertones it may indicate that you flow towards Deep Winter.
Don't be too concerned with whether or not the people in the photos match your identical color combination, such as tan, hair color and eyes. The most important thing is that you have the right contrast level, and look good in the colors on the chart. If you do feel the need to identify with the DEEP WARM "poster girls", best to google the names above without makeup, natural hair color and in daylight. Makeup, lighting, spray-tans, and photoshop can change the overall appearance a lot.
All DEEP WARM's are a mix between earthy warm and cold and dark. In other words, a mix between CLEAR COOL and MUTED WARM (in classical terms an autumn with a dash of winter), as they are equally dark an deep.
Some of them may have a slight coolness to a few of their features, such as black hair or eyes, blueish hazel eyes, or pale skin, which means they are flowing into DEEP COOL.
Being right in the middle between warm and cold (DEEP COOL and DEEP WARM) makes it possible for both of these types to look good in some of the same colors, such as gold, true red, deep green, navy blue and flame orange. The difference is that a DEEP WARM looks better in warm shades and has a warm undertone to their overall look. You can tell by the fact that they look great in ivory, deep and dark forest green, deep and bright warm-reds, golden browns, peachy pink, and warm golden yellow. Gold and bronze are the metallics that compliment a DEEP WARM best, because it has the right glow for their intense warm look. Silver works best on those who flow into DEEP COOL.
The difference between the other earthy and warm groups; such as the more delicate, MUTED WARM and SOFT WARM, is that the DEEP WARM is darker, deeper and has a higher level of contrast.
A DEEP WARM look, is best flattered by pure, deep colors, or lighter, but still pure hues. Colors that are too dirty and muted are too faded for this group.
Ivory is the best shade of white, and you will probably struggle with pure white. Even though black looks good on you, a deep chocolate brown would be better, especially without makeup.
Being the deepest and darkest of all the warm groups, DEEP WARM features are brought to life by pure, rich, deep and golden hues, that echo their own natural depth and contrast level. This means that you can look great in an all golden brown outfit only matched with gold accessories, or a bright red dress matched with a deep green coat. A look that would would diminish or overwhelm most other types. Instead very pale, dusty and cool colors make you look blend and unbalanced. For the highest contrast DEEP WARM's, it could be smart to use pure, dark or deep colors together with lighter colors to create that contrast and depth, and to balance your own dark features.
Dark to medium shades of hair color, is really the only look for a DEEP WARM, ashy shades, and platinum blond are not hair colors for this dark and warm shading. Most DEEP WARM's look faded and fake with completely blond hair, as it drains color from the face. Whilst, black brown, dark brown, red or golden brown hair makes the features appear more defined and fresher.
WORST COLORS ARE icy pastels and dusty tones, such as dusty, cool tones and soft, cool pastels. These colors does absolutely nothing for you. Remember that your biggest "no" colors are the ones that will clash with either your eye, skin or hair color, no matter if everything else tells you it should be great. A DEEP WARM needs pure, deep and golden colors, as well as a rich look.
For example, you can be a
DEEP WARM true, or should I say simply deep and warm (Julia Roberts). This is a classic DEEP WARM, and Julia Roberts is a perfect example of how a DEEP WARM can have a naturally lighter look (with deep eyes), but still look their best in pure, rich and deep colors. If you are a DEEP WARM true, the rules above should apply to you more or less perfectly.
DEEP WARM dark, (Solange) has the darkest and deepest overall coloring of all the DEEP WARM's, and (usually) especially dark eyes and hair. Therefore, they need a little more drama to achieve the flattering bold look, and the most vibrant and pure colors would be the best on this sub-group. Because of the tanned or dark look of the skin, the pure colors will give you a freshness equal to the CLEAR WARM look, and you might have thought that CLEAR WARM was your group, but in fact you just make the colors look brighter. The sub-groups are not so much about what you can't do, but more about what you can do; like getting away with bold colors and prints all mixed together.
DEEP WARM soft, (Kristin Kreuk) looks her best in DEEP WARM colors, but needs a little splash of grey in them. This sub-group usually has soft hazel eyes, fair skin, and a medium to dark hair color. If they wish to color their hair, they should stick to deeper hair colors, not lighter, because of their already uncharacteristic soft look. They don't have as much intensity as the rest of the DEEP WARM's, so their glow is a little different, and easily confused with the DEEP COOL soft (if they flow into cool, thats where they should borrow colors from). Bronze will probably be better for you than gold, since it's a little deeper, but both gold and silver works to. A DEEP WARM soft is still very much a DEEP, and typically soft and muted colors wont look as good. They just have a slightly softer intensity, and so without makeup and dyed hair, they look their best in DEEP WARM colors that are ever so slightly muted.
DEEP WARM neutral, (Olivia Munn) is a classic example of how a DEEP WARM with a tan, can flow into DEEP COOL, and suit the cool colors almost "equally". Even though her skin has a warm undertone, many of the cooler hues can look good too. The only reason she is in fact more warm than cool, is because she looks really great in DEEP WARM colors, the coolest and iciest hues can make her skin look a little red, and is overwhelmed by "goth" makeup. Also, silver and pure white seems harsher on her than gold and ivory, and it is especially obvious with little or no makeup on. A true DEEP COOL can look good in silver, goth and icy colors, as well as pure white, even when pale. However, the neutral does share the dislike for lighter hair.
DEEP COOL, also has their version of a neutral, embodied by Kim Kardashian, and both her and Olivia Munn will look good in many of the same colors. The difference is that Olivia Munn has the typical warm feature of being sensitive to pure white, and silver, whereas Kim K looks great in those colors too.
If you have difficulty deciding whether you are warm or cold, and lighter hair is not your thing; you're probably a neutral.
DEEP WARM soft
Kristen Kreuk is a little softer than a typical DEEP, because of her soft hazel eyes and lighter natural hair. The deeper hair-color suits her season even better, but she still has soft hazel eyes.
For the DEEP WARM softs who are flowing into DEEP COOL, it is best to stick to the DEEP COOL soft hues.
Especially since pure white is still not the best look for any DEEP WARM, you can get away with it, but it looks a little harsh.
As you can see, the warmer colors looks allover safer for Olivia Munn. Even though she just happen to have a tan on many of the "warm hues" photos, she still looks good in the same colors when pale. But for a neutral this is still the way to do it. Match your warmth to your current skin tone since both DEEP WARM and DEEP COOL colors can look (mostly) just as good.
DEEP WARM neutral
Flowing into DEEP COOL.
Olivia Munn, actually suit DEEP COOL colors kind of equally as good as DEEP WARM colors, depending on her tan. The only thing certain is that she's definitely a DEEP, and that in general the warm tones gives her a little more more of a natural glow.
The pure white seems a little harsh on her (especially without makeup), and she looks much more natural, calm and fresh in the warm, creamy white. Some of the coolest hues makes her skin look a little red or irritated (especially when she's wearing natural makeup).
DEEP WARM colors
DEEP WARM neutral
DEEP WARM true
Julia Roberts real hair color, looks closer to this. But she is still deep.
A DEEP WARM looks better with lighter hair than a DEEP COOL, but deep hair is still better. Blondette can look good, and too blond will diminish your look.
DEEP COOL colors
Some examples of DEEP COOL colors on Gabrielle union, below.
DEEP WARM dark
The DEEP WARM dark can handle intense colors and combinations, and make it look fresh and effortless.
Mindy Kaling is a DEEP WARM dark, who is flowing into DEEP COOL dark.
Lighter or darker DEEP WARM colors wont be as amazing, but it will give a more classy and collected look for the less flashy occasions. It still looks good, because they are after all DEEP WARM colors. Both look good, just a different expression .
Just stay away from too dirty and muted colors (e.g. this dirty shade of pink). They do nothing for the DEEP WARM, and especially not for the radiant and rich, DEEP WARM dark.
Too the left, there is a DEEP WARM vs. DEEP COOL cool colors for Gabrielle Union as well, to show you she's DEEP WARM neutral. To the left, you will find two rows of DEEP WARM colors, and a row of DEEP COOL colors on the right side closest to this.
A DEEP WARM neutral will usually have two undertones to their skin tone, which is actually quite common for darker skin. It doesn't always mean that you're a neutral, but it is usually found in neutrals or groups that aren't strictly cold or warm toned.
As you can see in these photos, Gabrielle Union has both a red (golden, a neutral that usually means cold in darker skin.) and a yellow undertone (warm undertone. Yellow undertone is warm and olive is neutral), and can look good in both DEEP WARM and DEEP COOL colors. DEEP WARM colors are slightly better, and that's why I put her in this group.
