Mahogany Ethereal


Mahogany Ethereal is an element of maximum Yin. It stands in opposition to Sun Ethereal, which is the maximum Yang. This translates very clearly into the styles associated with these two Ethereals. Sun is bright, geometric, and devoid of patterns. Mahogany is dark, its shapes are based on circles and ovals, and its main pattern is expressive florals.

Sun Ethereal slims the figure and creates Yang features for face and body. Mahogany provides the figure with power and often very feminine shapes. In facial features, it is visible in full lips, large eyes, and often distinct cheekbones. With strong Mahogany E., one’s coloring appears in the form of dark hair, brown eyes, and a darker complexion. In Sun Ethereal, we have straight, blonde hair, fair skin, and light eyes for a change. At the same time, the coloring can be modified by other, more substantial Ethereals in one’s configuration.

Like any other Ethereal, the Mahogany can appear with any base type and enter into configurations with any additional beauty aspects. The combination of Luminous and Mahogany produces a very exciting outcome. Representatives of this fascinating mix are, among others, Sofia Coppola (Gamine) and Alicja Bachleda-Curuś (Classic).

The singer Lisa Stansfield (Gamine) also has a unique type of beauty. Lisa is not luminous, but she is a Gamine woman, which means her base type is entirely incompatible with Mahogany. An exciting combination of French and Mahogany Ethereals made the beauty of the stunning Lisa very intriguing.

The style is feminine, lavish, slightly exotic. The appropriate fabrics will be thick, ornamental, embossed like jacquard, velvet, shantung, and all kinds of leather. Other style elements include furs, turbans, and sturdy shoes with a platform. The basic pattern will be large florals on a dark background.

Jewelry should be bold, massive, and dense, in brass or antique gold colors, with large ornamental elements. Hoop earrings, chokers, or heavy chains will all be excellent choices. 

Mahogany Ethereal achieves the highest compatibility with the following base types – Flamboyant Gamine, Flamboyant Natural, and Soft Dramatic. In these types, Mahogany acts as a heavy and exotic Yin element. The beauty of such women is always exotic and expressive in some way, even if their coloring does not match the Mahogany essence at all.

The second degree of compatibility is the base types – Soft Gamine, Soft Natural, and Romantic. Here, Mahogany strongly impacts well-defined curves and a strong build. It works as a pure (not necessarily exotic) Yin element.

The individual elements of the style should be adjusted to the beauty features and the entire Ethereal configuration.

Mahogany – and all other Ethereals – can function as an independent element that makes up our type of beauty. In such a case, we are talking about the Ethereal type of beauty. We omit Kibbe typology and classic color analysis.


  • darkens and warms the coloring
  • physiognomy with a predominance of Yin characteristics
  • body type – strong
  • body lines – curvy
  • height – moderate towards tall
  • shoulders – equal to the hips
  • waist – distinctly defined
  • bust – large
  • musculature – medium level
  • limbs – long
  • eyes – large
  • nose – medium size
  • lips – full
  • cheekbones – very defined
  • expressive beauty (regardless of individual coloring)
  • Mahogany Ethereal likes to couple with Queen and/or Spanish Energetic Ethereal

The above list presents the beauty features that Mahogany Ethereal is responsible for in its pure form. Please note that how we ultimately look is the result of several Ethereals combined together.
