Cornel believes that every person should be able to make their own colour choices and that everyone should know to what extent their choice will be *Harmonise, *Contrast or *Intente.
Put this into practice by looking at the 9 eye colours on the provided short version of eye colours. They were created by certain wavelengths according to general eye colour depth.
It is important to get the closest match to your eye colour. The science behind it follows through automatically. *Harmonise colours will always be shades matching your eye colour depth. (in the past it was important to choose warm and cool as a primary objective perhaps too rigid to make the individual stick to only a few primary colours)
When you reach the second step: *Contrast colours can be chosen from 3 depths of shades in any colour and also from the greyscale, as long as it is providing 3 colour depths from your own eye colour depth. (different hues will have no effect on the holistic experience as it cannot be changed)
It is also proven that any tertiary demand will be fed out of the *Intente range that can be comforted from all the other colour shades that fall out of the range.
Now the understanding should be that all colours that are not from the *Contrast area and are already 3 depths from the *Harmonise depth are called *Intente.
It’s MAGIC! You have found the easiest and well covered scientific solution, to pick colour schemes for any skin tone, texture or textiles and monochromatic options. Your eyes never age and your choices grow.
Shades of Soul is the only eye-colour-depth theory that adds scientific research of colour frequencies to prove the matching of colour use in any industry.
The Shades of Colour that you have selected are already actively used in the NCS System provided.
Your own demographics will show case the strength and character play which are brought forward as your confidence is enhanced by Shades of Soul.
Freedom to Explore Colour Making Sense
Apply only 3 steps to find your new freedom to explore colour making sense for the first time.
Step 1: *Harmonise
Establish your eye colour shade – depth of eyes.
Step 2: *Contrast
Move 3 shades in any direction to find contrast option. It can be a new shade also as long as you start with the depth of that shade first. The same as eye colour depth, to get the *Harmonise depth
Step 3: *Intente
Any shade hat you like that is 3 depths from your *Harmonise shade, is called a *Contrast shade. All other colour shades more than 3 away from your eye-colour depth are called *Intente.
Perhaps you wondered what type of Yellow would suit you. Simply start with picking your Eye Colour Match first. Then proceed to the Yellow Shade that matches your Eye Colour Depth, which is the *Harmonise Yellow. Contrast Yellow would be 3 shades lighter or darker than the *Harmonise Yellow. Any shade of Yellow that is lighter or deeper than the Contrast Yellow would be the *Intente Yellow.
Now, with every colour that you would like to try with one of those yellows, start with your Eye Colour Depth first to get your next *Harmonise, *Contrast or *Intente shade to compliment the first choice.
When people exploring different colours for special occasions, it is similar to painting your house or planning a new wardrobe. There are so many things to consider.
Here is the solution:
Select a *Harmonise shade and thereafter any *Contrast shade. To complement those add *Intente shades.
This type of selection is known as the perfect *Trio.
A *Trio’s Magic is already done in Nature. When looking at the sky, you will most likely find a combination lightest (whites and golds), medium tones (blue, orange and greys) and dark tones (charcoal, dark reds and dark blues and even almost black).
As explained earlier, the frequencies of colours in the trio will find a Perfect balance and soothing to look at as in
Individuals who prefer a more monochromatic option are likely to choose just 2 types of shades and it can be in high contrast. The same principle as the eye-colour-depth is teaching us for example that forest greens will be anything from the light yellow-green to dark blue-green.
More than 3 shades have a much more interesting effect, as your eyes enjoy the different frequencies jumping between the types of colours.
This brings us to the percentage of colour-use *Harmonise, *Contrast and *Intente. Just a reminder that Shades of Soul was developed to gain a holistic experience.
When you want your look at *Harmonise, only 50% would have to be a *Harmonising shade. When you find a *Harmonising shade, add either 50% of a *Contrast shade or 50% of an *Intente shade. The *Magic still lies within
Eyes with colours of Dark Brown, Black Brown, Grey Blue and Hazel with Grey or Blue flecks, are still more conducive to Cooler Shades. This means that Cool colours with blue and violet undertones would *Harmonise better with Cooler Eye Colours. Blue and Violet undertones are also well exposed when looking at the area underneath.
Eyes with colours of Golden Brown, Green, Green-Blue, Turquoise and Hazel with Golden or Brown flecks call for Warmer Shades with Yellow and Orange tones. The wrist-area beneath will have olive-green tones which also means that warmer undertones will complement the Warmer Eye Shades.
Just a reminder that if your first choice is a *Contrast Shade or an *Intente Shade, your complete look will only be *Contrast or *Intente looking if those are more than 50% of your look.
