trying to figure out if i'm Deep Autumn or Deep Winter HELP!

I’ve always figured that I was a deep Winter since I naturally wear and suit jewel colours – and I have to be a bit careful with yellows/ mustard/brown etc but a couple of things make me wonder if I am a deep Autumn. Namely these are a deep coral colour looks really good against me – one of my best colours and also this rusty gingery red that is in the shops at the minute and I’m beginning to think some shades of my beloved purple look well rubbish on me. I regularly do the colour swatch thing but end up getting confused!! In addition to this with make up some of the cooler colour can make me look a bit harsh – e.g fuschia pink/blue etc I have to balance them out with warm tones on my cheeks . I also look absolutely rubbish in white!

My natural hair colour is very dark brown but I do dye it so I wonder if this makes a difference – when I dye it comes out with red undertones so it is more like chestnut even if I use a dye that has no red in it – currently using a dark blonde (??!) it does work honest!! . I’m mixed race and tan easily with dark brown eyes – my skin tone is - well beige – a bit darker than Myleene Klass but similar with the freckles and stuff but not as dark as say Mel B or Halle Berry (who different websites consequently class as Autumn or Winter) – I don’t have afro hair – if that makes a difference (maybe with the colouring etc). I really can not afford a colour consultation – maybe I’m a whole different class of colour lol!!

Can anyone advise/offer up any really good websites – I think I’ve done them all though.
