'I feel like a kid at Christmas...'
I guess you can tell I am so excited waiting for my color
swatch to arrive I feel like a little kid at Christmas. I am so grateful to have found your site and
met you Pamela, you are a DayMaker and touch people’s lives in such a special
way. Absolutely you may use my photo, I look forward to sharing more
conversations with you, be blessed!
Pamela says: Thank you such lovely words. Donna had no idea just how fabulous her coloring was but now, with re-newed confidence, she's having so much fun experimenting with her new look.
After several different analysis' Crystal is Cool...
Crystal says: Wow, you've provided so much great information! It'll take a while to really process it all but I wanted to
share my first thoughts...
been analyzed as Soft Summer, Light Summer and "Cool, Soft & Deep"
by various on-line and in person analyses. Your analysis cuts right to
the heart of my problem: Summer was too soft.. the super dusty
colors of soft summer that were supposed to look great just looked
drab. Light Summer seemed better as the colors weren't as dusty but
the whole thing felt too light. I wondered about Winter but it seemed
too harsh and stark.
You've solved these problems! I'm eager to
give it a try and see how things feel. I'll definitely be ordering the
fabric swatch. Thank you and please feel free to use my picture and any of my feedback.
Amanda says: Wow I'm beyond
pleased with my analysis, it's the best money I've ever spent on myself.
I've long suspected I was Spring although now I understand the reasons and implications. My confusion and uncertainty has been in part because
every hair stylist firmly insists I'm "cool" which explains the reason I'm not happy with my hair.
My wardrobe features many of the swatch colors but they're mostly unworn although I naturally choose the Spring colors for my children and husband too.
I am purchasing an analysis for my sister. I'm nearly as excited to see her result as I was to get
my own! Thanks so much your advice has made such a difference.
Amy from the USA says:
Absolutely you can use my photo!
You have done a beautiful job and I'm so
excited to utilize everything that you've sent! Thank you for the depth
of detail and the explanation on why I fit into the Cool category.
is truly so so helpful as I'm building my capsule wardrobe.
Celeste writes from the US...
I'm full of anticipation and excited for their arrival (the Light color swatch).
On a side note: I ordered from you, as you're the first person (maybe only) that aptly captures the Summer/Spring crossover.
Thank you for your brilliance and excellent customer service.
Pamela: Thank you so much, I'm sure you'll love it.
Sarah from the US: "Wow, that was fast!
was pleasantly surprised by your findings. After reading your ebook, I
kind of thought I would end up in the “muted” category. But what you
have communicated to me makes absolute sense. I
was analysed as a Winter several years ago, but never
completely satisfied with the color choices missing some of the richer, deeper colors from Autumn and always thought
that I would like to wear those.
purchased the “deep” fabric color swatches from your website and can
hardly wait to experiment with my new palette. Would it be okay for me
to send you an occasional photo with the new colors? Thanks again for
your quick response and your detailed analysis of my coloring".
Pamela says: Although Sarah's hair is silver, the depth and high contrast remains in her eyes/eyebrows. The 'after' photos show a real boost to confidence.
Lynn writes about 'How to Work your Wardrobe' - "I have tried this very concept on my own many times. I find a capsule that I like, and try to imagine pieces of the wardrobe that I already own to make it happen. I never thought of doing it the other way round...I love, love, love this guide! Thank you so much!"
Nicola from the UK says: "Just
wanted to say how pleased I am with my colour analysis, there is so
much detailed information. This has been very helpful and the colour
fabric swatch that I have ordered will be extremely useful when
shopping. Thank you very much".
Leigh from the US says: Thank you for the color analysis. I am very pleased with
the reports you sent me. Thank you for taking the time to provide such a
thorough report! I am excited to go shopping and begin finding more
suitable clothing. Thanks again.
Mari Anna from the US kindly says:
"Pamela was wonderful in helping me understand the colors
that suit me. My coloring is a bit challenging and Pamela personally
communicated with me to gather more information and explain her
thoughts. I only wish I had done this earlier. Thank you Pamela!"
It was a joy to work with you Mari Anna and a pleasure to hear how all the points fell into place.
Paula from the USA: "Just a note to let you know that I received my color
analysis material and am eagerly reviewing it. The Deep Tonal color
family makes so much sense and answers a lot of my questions. I
really appreciate the depth of material that you’ve offered and have
ordered the fabric color swatch. I look forward to assimilating the
information you’ve given me.
Thanks so much for a quality product at such a reasonable price!
Jane from the UK: "Thank you so much for your careful and discerning analysis of my colour
family. I am so happy to be in the Light Bright group. I was amazed at
the colours around my face and did not recognise myself for a moment. I
used to match my colours to my 'dark' hair and they overwhelmed me but I
couldn't understand why!
I thought perhaps the light navy and tan browns would be good neutrals
as per the pictures next to my face. I am certainly going to lighten my
hair a shade. May I ask if you could suggest a s!ightly different hairstyle for me - maybe a fringe? But anyway, I am so happy and will be
ordering a colour fan - and I am so glad to have found your website"
Pixie Glo from Canada is about to start a lifestyle blog says "I've been told I'm a true
winter but wearing these bright clothes gives me migraine, too intense
and I feel that I need to take them down. Also been told I was a
neutral cool. I
love nature and animals bring me peace... but when I go out I am the life of
the party n like to look striking, also very creative 'n spiritual.
Deep? Really? Awesome! choose the nicest pic. I approve!"
I found that Pixie Glo has both Warm and Cool elements and is a Deep. P
Denise from Canada says: "I just registered to
receive your newsletter and after answering some of your quizzes and
"roaming" through your site, I just want to tell you how much I
appreciate your suggestions and advice. I've been looking for a long
time to find a website as complete as yours. Thanks so much". "I'm delighted you're enjoying it... P"
Cheri from the USA: "After struggling with what colors look best on me for many years now and
ending up getting a color analysis several times (all were split
between Deep Autumn and Deep Winter) I finally feel at peace with what
you have presented to me. You were very thorough and you are really the
only one who really explained why I am a winter and not an Autumn.
I'm really excited to finally have closure and am looking forward
to cleaning out my closet and purchasing clothes in my best colors. I
had a wonderful experience and I have no problem with you using
my photos. Thank you again.
"Thank you. Your website is great...very informative and exactly what I have been looking for!"
"This site is a source of information and useful tips!!"
Karin from the USA says:
"I really enjoyed reading through your information and am so pleased
to understand my coloring! I had a hunch I was some deep season but
could not decipher between winter and autumn, as neither seemed to work
particularly well for me. Now I know why! You explained it beautifully.
Thank you for the comprehensive analysis and information; so very
Patricia, USA - Yes you can be Warm and Cool
Many women try to work out whether they're Autumn or Winter but undertone isn't always the most important factor. The primary characteristic for
Patricia is strong DEEP coloring with dark eyes brows and
hair. To balance this she needs the intensity of the DEEP color family.
color palette includes the true DEEP shades from Autumn and Winter
but excludes the other elements that don't relate. Some of Patricia's
best colors are aubergine, pine green and teal - the strength of the
shade is far more important than whether it's Warm or Cool.
Fiona, USA: I'm really happy that I took the time to treat myself to a color consultation with Pamela. I can truly say it's one of the best things I've done for myself. The
information she gave me was initially very surprising, since it was
different from what I had once thought. But once I cleared away some of
the preconceived ideas and mental blocks, things started to make much
I have to thank Pamela very much for her clear guidance, and for sorting out years of confusion for me. I know I'll be looking a whole lot better from now on!
Marcia from Canada: was looking for a Mother of the Groom dress so we looked at fitting in with the bride's color scheme. The bride had chosen Tiffany blue and her mother would wear mink, so we put them together with the Winter palette to see how it could work.
"The wedding color mockup is really nice, it makes a difference having the colors with the face in the collage, very interesting to see how color works. I found a
navy dress that looks great and have gone through my wardrobe to
eliminate some items that weren't right. I feel more confident when dressing now. Thanks so much for rushing to do that for me."
Marie, UK - "Thank you so much for the detailed personal colour analysis, it was
just what I needed to help me streamline my wardrobe and makeup
collection. I really appreciated the personal and tactful advice
offered, so much so that I immediately went out and changed my hair
colour back to it's natural brunette, which feels like it has taken
years off my appearance, and as I now don't need to spend so much time
on putting together outfits everyday, I am pleased to say I will have a
lot more time available to spend on my studies".
Kristi Frank, USA - "I love your system as it addresses the 'woman in between seasons' -
something I'd never even thought about. I've always felt uncomfortable
wearing bright colors and found it difficult to choose makeup.
Well now I know
why as I'm a mix of Cool and Warm - Pamela has given me the tools to look at
myself objectively for the first time. Finally I feel like I am able to
be beautiful being me!"

"I think your website and newsletters are
great. You manage to cut through a lot of the hype and confusion about
colour analysis and have something which is easy to read and makes
sense. I dont want anything too celebrity orientated and as someone who
is retired and on a budget look for ideas about translating best
colours into my everyday wardrobe. You obviously know your stuff. I shall look forward to further
newsletters". Lin, UK
Barb from the USA:
In my time I have been draped Summer, Toned Spring and Autumn - finally your analysis makes sense. I read most of the info you sent, including the pictures,
and I love it. It will be easy to follow, I
I really see and have thought for a while that the mid-tones are
best on me. No wonder there haven't been any right fits - thank
you for this!!
Peg from the USA
I found your analysis to be thorough with great examples for application and am looking forward to incorporating the summer colors into my wardrobe.
would be happy to allow you to use my comments and photo.
Carolyn from the UK:
People always comment about my icy blue eyes which led me to self diagnose a Soft Summer!
Now seeing myself in the Warm colors I can completely understand what you are saying and can see the difference between the cool circle and the warm circle.
I'm having a hard time processing that I have warm coloring but seeing me in the circle certainly confirms it. I'm ready to 'out' the black!
Merlyn from the UK: "I've always hated shopping for clothes (yet I'm a woman and that's
the strange thing). I'd always feel overwhelmed
with choice as soon as I walked into a store, I felt sick. I had
ideas of styles but it's the COLOURS! I wished I could just go into a
shop and just KNOW which colours do I go for.
I've battled that
shopping-phobia (probably a little bit of exaggeration there) for years
until I was made aware of personal colours. Now, being an Asian (dark
brown skin) I should think I'd definitely be in warm colours palette so I
wore a lots of brown and orange. I learnt and self-research about
seasonal colours and the history of Colour Analysis and noticed that the models were always caucasian.
I kept searching until I found the free personal
colour quiz and interestingly the
result of the quiz was that my colouring was in DEEP colouring family
(not seasonal). I was so confident with the result, I ordered the colour
swatch for DEEP colouring family and starting to experiment. My
brown and orange colours were there but I also
found deep pink and chinese blue that I'd never been bold enough to try. I tried the colours and the effect was a
further eye opener - I got compliments which I've never had
in my life about how lovely a colour looks on me.
So I decided to be
'analysed' further. I bought the colour analysis package online,
exchanged email with Pamela, and the result was mind blowing. I would
never think myself as COOL (girls with dark brown skins are always
associated with warm) and moreover that deeper colouring from cool
palette suits me best. It was as if a cloud had been lifted and I could
see all my mistakes! I never dared to wear pinks before now I
love them. It made life so much easier knowing my personal colours. I
ordered my second swatch from COOL family had fun sorting out my
wardrobe, got rid of all the wrong colours, and I now have a wardrobe
with such harmonious colouring. Lipstick shopping now much easier too.
could see easily which colours has blue (cool) tone in them and don't
even bother trying the warmer colours. And another interesting thing, I
started to notice random people around me and could see why wearing
wrong colours make one looks dull and tired even sick while wearing
right colours give completely the opposite effect. I think that's enough
from me. If you get this far, thank you for reading and please give the colour analysis a go, it's worth it"
Dear Pamela thank you so very much for my colour analysis. I'm
absolutely thrilled with it, I feel like a new start that's fun and much more
It was very kind of you to take the time to help me and as I start my new
journey I will keep you updated. I will definitely be returning to your
wonderful web site all the time and telling all my friends too. Can't wait to
start trying my new colours thank you so much.
so much Pamela for the lovely Bright colours!
noticed that I have some dresses in the colour wheel which is good! I love the picture of the lady in yellow trousers, navy striped top, so I am now on to
look for this nautical style.
These Bright colours are amazing, love them!! it has inspired me to look for items
for my holiday with colour palette, plus I have a wedding shortly!
certainly recommend you to friends and family.
You are more than welcome to use my
Having my colour analysis completed
was quite an eye opener....I have found that I shop with a totally different
mind set. My Colours now leap out at me and it's goodbye to impulse
purchases....although I can still spend a small fortune...! All part of the fun
For years I have tried to find out my season,but
ended up so confused. I had tried following all the online
seasonal analysis websites. I even bought all the suggested lipsticks
for the seasons and subseasons but couldn't work it out.
Thank God I
came across Pamela. It has been the best money I have spent and I'd advise anyone wanting to find out their best colours to do it, it's worth every
Crystal, USA: For years I'd been searching for a good look just for me and as I
aged nothing clicked. I felt frumpy and like nothing went together. I
had colorists tell me I was light summer, cool summer, soft autumn
and winter! So confusing. Then a friend had an analysis done by Pamela
and she was over the moon with her results. I was skeptical but really impressed by the things Pamela told her and had
discerned about her. So I went for it, filled out the questionnaire and
sent in photos. I couldn't be more pleased! Not only did she show me
what colors worked best on me but added a lovely letter and
additional information showing all the details giving advice on
everything from colors to makeup and hair colors - and is spot on!
never felt so good about an analysis and how I look. She did it quickly
and was open to questions too. I'm smiling all the time. I highly
recommend Pamela's services to anyone who is seeking. And best of all
she is a lovely person. Her words are kind and give gentle encouragement
in how she presents the material just for you. Thanks so much to my
friend and to Pamela!
Joy from the USA:
"Pamela is both encouraging and thorough . Having been determined a
"Cool Summer" by previous analysts, she pursued "deeper" and determined my
direction was warm and deep with a touch of bright.
This aligned with
colors I have always been comfortable with in my surroundings and really
encouraged me. Thank you, Pamela".
Louise from the UK says:
you’re thinking about getting your colours done, Pamela is the lady to
go with. Her warm friendly personality comes through in all her emails,
you can just tell she loves her job. She really cares about getting all
the details right and she has been a pleasure to deal with the whole way
through. I am thrilled with my results and will be recommending her to
all my friends!"
Ann from USA: Thank you so much for the wonderful color analysis you did for me. I am
so pleased that I finally know for sure what looks good on me. I have
tried other ways of finding out with no success.
Your assessment was
right on, and I have been enjoying making the right purchases for the
first time in my life. I have told all my friends to have you do
their's, even the State Farm lady I met this morning. You are very
professional, and follow through on what you say. This is a great way to
run a business. I will continue to read articles you put on the site as
they are very helpful. Most of all, I feel so much better about myself,
and this is all because of your expertise. Thank you again.
Rose from Australia: "Thank you very much Pamela for all the help and the intricacy of your advice. Understanding colour in more detail and how it relates to how I look in my clothes has made a huge difference to what I wear, how I feel about it, and the remarks I have been receiving! I was really getting it wrong when choosing a lot of my clothes, although always feel good in black and various shades of blue. To find that added to the colours I instinctively chose to feature in the majority of my wardrobe, that I could wear emerald green and those glorious cool pinks, purples and reds has been thrilling.
Purple really works for me and, while sorting out my wardrobe and getting rid of a lot of things I haven't worn for years, it's been wonderful to discover some old friends that were purple, had splashes or were the perfect blue.
I've treated myself to some new clothes in
that pink/purple range and it really does lift my appearance and make me
look more healthy and younger. I now have the most gorgeous pair of
emerald green silk pants (silk chiffon over silk lining) that I kind of
float around the house in feeling fabulous. One of my Christmas
presents was a glorious silk top, primarily royal purple with splashes of lighter purple as well as deep green, which has tied it
in perfectly with the pants. I would never have thought of wearing
emerald green! But the comments have been extremely positive :-)
To conclude I'd say that I feel happier and am having a lot more
fun with my clothes since your analysis. I'm loving it! I would
recommend you highly to anybody who'd like to look as fabulous as
they can, whatever their age. I am 55 and I feel I have lost 10 years!
Sat from Taiwan: "I had been wanting a Color consultation for a long time but was put off by the costs and working
abroad made it difficult to meet someone face-to-face. I
discovered Pamela and her Online Color Analysis, filled in a short questionnaire
and sent a photo. The information I received was fantastic! I got to
know which colors to avoid and which colors made me look better. Certain
clothes, such as the light orange tie-dye, was really making me look ill but
the bright cool red made me look radiant and healthy, and I was quickly able to
implement the advice even with hair and makeup, glasses and so on.
People began to compliment me on clothes and makeup and I felt much more confident. I became so passionate that I began to look at color psychology and how it affects people in general.
Now after almost 5 years, I still refer to
my analysis and am still getting compliments. I
always thought that fashion, style and clothes were not that important,
but if it contributes to your overall well being and confidence, how
can it be bad!
Susan from the USA asked: 'Is it possible to be all 4 Seasons?'
I was so confused trying to determine what my season was, and wrote to Pamela with the odd question of "is it possible to be all 4 seasons?".
I was analyzed by 3-4 different online color consultants and was told I was definitely warm...an autumn. Then I was told "burnished winter" and then summer, with no warmth at all in my coloring. I've always instinctively known a good color when on the rare occasion I found it...and that right color could be black, grey, navy, and raspberry.
Finally the Personal Color Analysis I received from Pamela solved the mystery! Although I never saw it, brightness and contrast is my strongest
feature. Although in my mind my good colors are very specific, now it
makes perfect sense that I could wear a lot of different colors (not
just warm, not just cool, but all colors) as long as it's crisp and
clear and when I have it on, something just clicks and I look years
younger with minimal makeup...for me, it was an epiphany and the end of
my season searching! My feeling is that BRIGHT is not common, and can't
be easily diagnosed, but Pamela took the time to figure it out for
Thank you Susan - I enjoyed the challenge! See a precis of my answer HERE... P.
Lynn from the USA ordered a Light color swatch
I have learned through trial and error the colors that look best on me. I also took your color quiz, which was accurate. Years ago there was a book about whether you were a spring, summer, autumn or winter.
Thank you for your marvelous website - I am quite excited to continue reading about this fascinating subject.
Eleanor, Scotland - "dubious about Online"
thought I would just let you know what a wonderful, positive experience my colour analysis was. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to do an analysis from photographs but you did an amazing job. You recognised that
one of the issues that was adding to my confusion over which colours help me
look my best was my hair colour. Since the ‘greys’ started to seep in I have
found myself more and more perplexed over which colours to wear. Your
suggestion that rather than go lighter it would be best for me to return to my
natural hair colour was spot on.
I must say how attractive and useful I find the colour swatch. I don't find it easy to remember or hold a colour in my mind; so having a physical tool to use when shopping is great."
|The Autumn season
Trisha, UK - "you've really clarified things for me!"
this interesting stuff about choosing your colors. I was 'done' as a
Winter in the late eighties, then again as a Deep Autumn in the
nineties. A few years ago, a Color Me Beautiful training lady did me as DEEP. She said
"a Deep was half way between Autumn and Winter as I was just the warm side of cool".
I now find that your definition of DEEP
has clarified things for me because I have aspects of both Warm and
Cool. The browns/oranges of Autumn are too warm on me, especially as I
age (59), but cool blues and pinks of Winter are too frosty and give
mauve shadows to the skin.
believe that more people are between Warm and Cool than is recognized.
Too many struggle to fit into a season exactly and it doesn't work. Love
your site keep up the good work".
Bertha from the USA is a BRIGHT
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my Bright color family. I have a handful of clothing in this group and have dug them out to retry. It has made a big difference. I had been stuck in wearing cool colors
but see that I need clarity and warmth to look my best. Today several
people I have never met gave me a greeting.
Kobi from the USA is Deep Bright
"Thank you so very much!! I'm so excited to learn that I am part
Autumn/part Winter!! The women in my family tried to do an analysis on our own and they thought I was Autumn but I found many of
the colors very bland. I get the most compliments wearing strong greens and reds, definitely fitting your
conclusion. I was so confused but now very happy with the results - I'm thrilled to start planning my wardrobe".
