Colour analysis is popular again!
What’s it all about? It’s the practice of draping large pieces of different coloured fabrics under your chin to discover which ones suit your skin tone, eyes and hair. Your best colours make you look healthy and vibrant. The less optimal ones leave you looking sallow and tired, emphasising shadows under your eyes and chin.
Colour analysis became a global phenomenon in the early 1980s when Carole Jackson’s book ‘Colour Me Beautiful’ was published. The theory used then, is the same theory used today. Your best colours match the intensity, undertone and value of your hair, skin and eyes.
People were categorised into four seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. These days, colour systems are much more nuanced to accommodate our multi-cultural society. I use a system that has 18 different colour palettes!
Recently, I was interviewed on ABC Radio Sydney Mornings about the rise in popularity of colour analysis again. Many women called or text to share their stories about how knowing their best colours has enhanced their lives.
This is something many people ask about. If you want to know more, you can listen to the recording here.
If you need help knowing the colours that look fabulous on you, the swatch of colours you receive at your fun two-hour colour analysis session will make shopping for clothes, accessories, makeup and hair dye quick, easy and successful. Plus, you’ll gain more confidence and feel great too!
