What's Your Season?
Today, there are infinite ways to choose makeup colors for your complexion, but do you remember when finding your ideal color palette was a matter of the seasons? The Color Me Beautiful makeup-by-seasons approach to beauty matched each complexion with a color palette based on a time of the year. Were you a pastel spring, a bronzed summer, a rich autumn, or a dramatic winter? This color-matching system flourished in the '80s and '90s, but our idea of seasonal beauty traces back to global mythology. And while we're not fans of most beauty rules (you really can wear any color if you want), it's fun to think about the mythological goddesses who inspired our modern-day notion of colors and seasons. Which season and goddess do you most resemble?
