I've really switched off from technology with a holiday and Christmas losing myself in sunshine, books, television and family! We feel very privileged to have managed a holiday after two years as, once home, travel became difficult again. I'll show you some photos from beautiful Mauritius next time.
I don't believe in New Year Resolutions as such, too easy to break, but I've tried to put my best step forward with this month's articles. I really hope you enjoy the History of Royal Fashion which continues over the next few months.
Ok so you’re a Winter – but how do you actually begin to wear Winter colors?When you first look at the color palette you'll see a host of dramatic colors and, at first glance, it can all look a bit vivid.
So how do you begin to dress in your colors and get to look fabulous? As many of you know, this is when panic sets in!
If you are LIGHT, WARM and BRIGHT you will probably be Spring. If you're DEEP, WARM and SOFT you will probably be Autumn.
But what happens if you don't have the requisite 3 color characteristics togethe? I've been asked this question recently and, although I analyzed Sarah some time ago, it seemed very apt to show you her images.
With golden brown hair and soft brown eyes, she could almost be mistaken for Autumn. But although her skin is warm it's very light and extremely delicate, certainly not strong enough to take the soft deep tones of Autumn.
To many people having a Warmskin has to mean either Spring or Autumn, but that's not actually the case. Both these palettes have an element of WARM, but neither is quite right for Sarah and both would severely restrict her palette.
The Spring colors would take her into sharp citrus tones which are too harsh while Autumn colors overall are too dark and heavy.
The medium intensity of the WARM color palette gives pure mellow warmth but with intense brightness excluding the the harshness of Spring and the heavyweight shades of Autumn. We are left with true warmth and clarity of the WARM color palette.
We are all different and many people don't conform to the Seasons but there are 6 beautiful Tonal color families there ready to catch you.
The photos below show how Sarah's delicate coloring shines with the clarity of the Warm colors and bring her to life. Read what she has to say about her former confusion and the result of her color analysis. Color Analysis testimonials..
