Armocromia: the iris test to find out your skin undertone


105 shares

What if the iris structure of the eyes helps you reveal your skin undertone? Because it is not only the eye color itself that makes us fall into one chromatic season rather than another, but also the pattern of the iris, which, based on its design, directs towards a warm rather than cold undertone, or neutral. Equip yourself with a magnifying glass or a magnifying mirror and try to read your iris too!

There iris reading is a part ofcolor analysis, the practice that is used to discover one’s own undertone and palette of belonging in the Armocromia. In Italy this practice is not held in high regard, while abroad it is more widespread. Let’s make a necessary premise: establishing your season of belonging is a complex procedure that must take into account several factors to “measure” a complexion and assign a palette also taking into account the color of the eyes and hair, so you cannot stop only at reading the iris to decree the undertone, everything must be contextualized and remember that there are always exceptions!

Eye color and undertone

The color of eyes, just like the color of the skin depends on the amount of melanin that you have: little melanin and the eyes are blue, a lot of melanin and the eyes are brown, in the middle there are green eyes.
It is not only the color of the eyes per se that is taken into consideration when reading the iris, because if so, blue eyes, for example, would belong only to summer and winter (cold) women, but instead there are many spring and autumn (warm) women who have eyes of this color, but rather its “pattern”, ie the structure of the shapes or design that can be distinguished around the pupil. According to those who have studied this practice the irises are divided into three macro-categories: warm, cold and neutral, let’s see the characteristics of each.

Irises of warm undertones

The irises that lead back to the warm undertone they have three very specific “drawings” around the pupil: the “starburst”, translated “explosion of a star”, A sort of uneven ray of a different color from the rest of the iris, often in shades of green-yellow, which can be of any color.

The second frequent pattern in warm undertones are speckles scattered around the iris, as if they were freckles. This iris is also called a “jewel”.

Pattern "freckles" (freckles), of different sizes and scattered in the iris, typical of cal undertones Pattern “freckles” (freckles), of different sizes and scattered in the iris, typical of warm undertones

The third and final pattern in the warm undertone category is the halo, a kind of little one ring well delineated around the pupil.

Pattern "Halo" (ring, circular halo), of a slightly different color from the iris, typical of the s “Halo” pattern (ring, circular halo), of a slightly different color from the iris, typical of warm undertones

Irises of cold undertones

The irises that lead back to the scold octtone instead they have three other types of designs: the first is a kind of wheel made of lines of a lighter color than the rest of the iris and concentric.

Pattern "wheel", ie concentric lines of a lighter color than the iris, typical of the so “Rotate” pattern, ie concentric lines of a lighter color than the iris, typical of cold undertones

The second pattern to be traced back to the cold undertone are gods flower petals, of a slightly more intense color than that of the iris.

Pattern “Flower petal” pattern typical of cold undertones

Third and final pattern in the cool undertone category is a kind of cloud clearer, as if it were a puff of white smoke in the center of the iris.

Pattern "cloud" (cloud), a sort of diffuse whitening in the iris, typical of cold undertones Pattern “cloud” (cloud), a sort of diffuse whitening in the iris, typical of cold undertones

Irises of neutral undertones

Not all color analysts take into account the neutral undertone, but some do and in the reading of the iris this category is taken into consideration because the patterns described in the previous two categories (warm and cold undertones) can be merged into the same iris, with a small prevalence of one or the other, which, however, can be negligible enough to make the person return to a neutral undertone.

Iris and chromatic season

As you may have guessed, the analysis of the iris is very complex because the drawings inside it are not always immediate to recognize and sometimes they are combined with each other. Here are some examples of celebrities whose irises, very clear and distinguishable in terms of pattern, fit perfectly into those described and confirm their undertone.

Spring woman’s iris

In Lauren Conrad's green iris we perceive a speckled pattern, like small freckles, which In Lauren Conrad’s green iris we perceive a speckled pattern, like small freckles, which corresponds to a warm undertone and specifically to the spring season

Woman’s iris Autumn

In the green and amber iris of Mila Kunis we perceive a “starburst” pattern (explosion of ste In the green and amber iris of Mila Kunis you can perceive a “starburst” pattern, which corresponds to a warm undertone and specifically to the autumn season

Summer woman’s iris

In Allison Williams' blue iris, a corresponding flower petal design is perceived In the blue iris of Allison Williams you can perceive a flower petal design, which corresponds to a cold undertone and specifically to the summer season

Woman’s iris Winter

In Anna Hathaway's brown iris we perceive a wheel design of more concentric lines In Anna Hathaway’s brown iris we perceive a wheel design of lighter concentric lines, which corresponds to a cold undertone and specifically to the winter season

To analyze your iris and be able to see the structures inside it, you must equip yourself with a mirror that magnifies about 10 times and have an excellent diffused light on the face, and remember that the result should always be associated with the measurement of the skin undertone through the draping technique, to have a more exhaustive and complete view. Armocromia is a discipline as fascinating as it is complex, never rely on a single element to define your palette!
