Your Style #119 - August 2022 10 years of Color Shape and Style!
Seems a long time away but I've been hard at work creating a NEW FREE Color Analysis Quiz. Up 'til now there's been a Free quiz to find your Tonal Color Family but now there's a Free quiz for the SEASONS too!
So whatever your coloring there's now a free and easy way of discovering your Color Family. Everyone's coloring is different and whether you turn out to be Tonal or Seasonal then it's perfect for YOU!
This week I celebrate 10 years of Style Yourself Confident - a milestone I would never have imagined. Huge thanks to YOU for your visits and the incredible interaction and friendship we've developed over the years! X
Mary is my subject today and her lovely coloring just screamed Warm! And this was exactly the color palette that worked for her after the very lengthy Color Analysis that I practice.
But after a succession of Color Analysis' consultations Mary was so completely confused about her colors and makeup it was difficult to accept a different direction. In fact her comment was: "I've been a cool or neutral in every cosmetic brand since I was 18 - never any peachy-coral colors associated with Warm, always plum undertones in blush/lipstick".
There was, however, the odd sign that Mary's instincts were in the right direction. She bought a raincoat in a sort of lime green because she says "it was the only one available and it fit". Believe me Mary, anyone in the Cool spectrum would rather die in the storm than buy lime green and it looked fabulous on you (sadly I've lost the photo!).
Anyway, move forward a few days and I had another message from Mary who said:
"I went and tried on some shirts in the colors you sent me and they actually worked. The gold not so much but what you said about "muted" rang true and when I put on more vibrant warm colors I saw a difference 🥰, thank you. I bought a few t shirts and I'll go from there. Funny thing is- these are colors I naturally wore in high school and have gotten away from recently- and it's a little hard to embrace more bold colors bc I'm attracted to khaki etc- but I'll give it a go. Still not sure how lipstick will roll- that's gonna take a while. I'm moving on and now have to see how to make my wardrobe work with what you said. Many appreciations."
