More Before and After Color Analysis
Can I wear black with Autumn?
let you know your analysis is a huge success, nothing but compliments and
everyone is applauding the fact that you’ve included the black for me!" Laura, France
says: Autumn is often thought of as a Muted palette, not so! Yes there
is softness in the mix of Warm, Deep and Muted but that's because the
colors are a rich blend and have a strong warm undertone. So if you
like to wear black it makes a perfect foil for these vibrant and lively
You've re-inspired me...
Thank you, you've re-inspired me re colour and I'm excited. Realised that I'd been sinking towards mutedness and had lost confidence in my
Winterness (Had my colours done several yrs ago and was deemed to be Winter or possibly Summer then!!). Have been seeing my natural coloring diminished and drifted away from the deep, bright, cool emphasis. I find it helpful that you
do both Tonal and Seasonal analysis and that you have gone thro your
thinking about both for me. Exactly what I wanted!
Since receiving your analysis and write-up I have reverted to using
stronger cooler lipstick and to playing with stronger colours again and
I feel much better for it and look much more healthy! Ruth, UK
Spring whatever my hair color
Thanks so much for the Color Analysis. I've had my colors done before but was not completely at ease, this has given me a real light bulb moment. I now see why I didn't fit into any of the mixed seasonal types and why changing my hair colour didn't really alter the best colours. A lot to take in - thank you! Andrea UK
Pamela says - Andrea's eyes are extremely bright and her skin very clear. In this case, the color direction was the same whatever her hair color.
No wonder I didn't feel like a Spring!
Thanks for all the time and effort spent trying different seasonal palettes against my face.
I was always confused how I could be a True Spring
because the lipsticks were so orange but now I see it was a certain
saturation I needed but that saturation had to be COOL not warm.
Summer was too grey and Winter too harsh. The true COOL palette is the perfect in-between that I needed. Sandra, Ireland
"If I could wear my house..." says Alex
I was analysed quite a few years ago as Deep Autumn. With brunette
hair at the time some of the colours were good but most too strong
unless I wear plenty of makeup. I actually felt as though it was me that
should have been deeper as surely my 'season' should feel right!
I can see why the
Muted palette with both warm and cool suits me. I already feel 'lighter' and more relaxed
somehow wearing soft colours. The funny thing is if I could wear
my house I would probably look
amazing as the soft colours are already on my walls, furniture & cushions! Alex, UK
You've given me the courage to go gray...
Mary Louise from the US says: No words can say how much I appreciate your color analysis. You hit the nail right
on the head and confirmed what I suspected through the years that I
was graying from a deep winter into a cool winter. You definitely have
given me the courage and inspiration to go gray once more, and THIS
TIME, I won't be going back to coloring ever again.
I want you to know Pamela, that the work you do is more
than just cosmetic. You give women and perhaps even a few men a
chance to feel good about ourselves, start over again and
reclaim our lives. Thanks so much, and please know that you have given
me one more reason to appreciate the British people. Mary Louise, USA
Pamela says: Mary Louise was determined Winter many years ago with very dark hair and cool skin. She's now unable to color her hair because of allergies - but it's a blessing in disguise because the dark hair was becoming very harsh against her skin tone. A quick tweak to the Cool Deep palette gives her far more colors to enjoy and her pink toned complexion has come to life!
'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 Day Maker 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!" Donna, USA
P: Thank you for your kind words. Donna had no idea just how fabulous her coloring was but now, with renewed confidence, she's having so much fun experimenting with her new look.
After several different analysis' Crystal is Cool...
"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." Crystal, USA
"..the best money I've ever spent on myself!"
Wow I'm beyond pleased, 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.
I am purchasing an analysis for my sister, nearly as excited to see her result as my own! Thanks you've made such a difference. Amanda, USA
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!"

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

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, would 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 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.
I kept researching and eventually found Pamela. My Color Analysis 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; I never dared to wear pinks before now I
love them. It made life so much easier knowing my personal colours. Please give it 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.
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!"
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.
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."
