Colour Analysis for Women

What is Colour Analysis?

Have you ever :

  • Been confused by colour?
  • Looked in the mirror and felt dull?
  • Wanted to wear more colours but not sure which ones suit you or  how to wear them?

A colour me beautiful colour analysis will demonstrate:

  • Why certain shades complement your natural colouring more than others.
  • What your dominant colouring is and how this determines what colours suit you.
  • A complete make-up in the right colours with tips on the make-up that suits you naturally.
  • How to wear and combine colours to achieve the look you want both at work and play.
  • How to coordinate your wardrobe and achieve more outfit combinations without having to buy more clothes.
  • Where to find your clothes this season.

Carol Jackson developed the Colour Me Beautiful system of colour analysis in the 1970's based on the colour theories of Johannes Itten, an artist from the Bauhaus School of Art in Germany.

It took as its basis the colours and shades of each season; for instance spring has a bright, vibrant warmth to it whilst winter is full of cool tones and dynamic contrast.

These days the system used is more sophisticated, there are six dominant types of colouring with variations within each dominant. As Colour Me Beautiful regularly continue to update and improve their system they are still the market leaders for accuracy and product quality. We will even advise on how to wear black when it's not within your palette!

By examining an individual's natural colouring - their eyes, hair and skin tone - Ann can work out which palette of colours will suit that person. These colours will be the most flattering for clothes and makeup. Hair colours, accessories and even home decor can also be discussed.


What happens in a session?

Individual session :

At your colour analysis session (which lasts 1.5 - 2 hours), Ann will find out about your lifestyle, clothes, make-up, shopping habits and what you like to wear.  By looking at the way your skin tone, eye and hair colour work together, Ann will show you how to wear the colours from your personal palette and ways in which you can use these colours to complement your unique colouring. This session also includes full make-up and advice for women; grooming advice, an extra shirt and suit swatches for men.

All 42 shades in your palette will be looked at and out of these it will become very clear as to what colours are the most flattering, including a few that should look simply stunning on you.  Ann will advise you on what your neutral colours are and how they work best for your wardrobe staples such as suits, jackets and trousers.  You'll then be shown how you can use accent colours to give your outfit the WOW factor.  You'll also receive a full make-up makeover in colours that complement your skin tone and features, along with a list of suitable make-up shades, so you'll leave feeling and looking great!  A personalised wallet containing 42 fabric swatches and colour combination tips is yours to keep for your future shopping trips.

You will also be able to observe what doesn't suit you having seen the effects of "right" and "wrong" colours against your skin. For instance wearing the wrong colours can emphasise what we may be trying to play down or they can make us look pale and tired. The right colours can make us look brighter, younger, bring out the colour of our eyes and have a clarifying effect on the skin.  Overall you can expect to feel more confident about what you are wearing and also receive more compliments as you wear the colours that bring out the best in you.

In Groups :

In groups of two to five - each person receives forty minutes of colour analysis, which is an abridged version of the individual session.
