We are continuing in our series about finding your best colors, based on not just your personal coloring but your personality as well.

Patricia is a wife, mom of 4, CPA, and entrepreneur helping others achieve more confidence and live better lives. Over the past year, I’ve witnessed her blossom and it’s been fun to watch. When Patricia recently attended a local networking event wearing an emerald green top, I couldn’t wait to add her to the color blog series.


* Dominant Color Temperature: Mostly warm

* Skin Tone: Ivory

* Hair Color: Dark Strawberry Blonde

* Eye Color: Cool, Deep Blue

*Coloring  Contrast Level: Medium

(Patricia has light ivory skin with medium depth eye and hair color. And although she’s quiet, she’s finding her voice. Therefore, out of the 2 color resonances I picked for Patricia, I chose the stronger – more saturated one.)

* Personality: Quiet, Strong, Witty, Inquisitive, Compassionate

* Color Resonance as it relates to personality: Light Toasted

(Resonance is the visual impression of a hue in relation to the pure pigment.  It is the result of how a pigment is lightened or darkened.  The 5 resonance qualities are: 

Washed = pure pigment + thinned with water , colors appear clear, pretty and crisp

Tinted =  pure pigment + white, colors appear light hearted, sweet and innocent

Shaded = pure pigment + black, colors appear serious, profound and mysterious

Toasted = pure pigment + brown, colors appear warm, mellow and luscious

Muted = pure pigment + complement color,  colors appear soft, gentle and subtle
