Colour Analysis: How to be your own Personal Stylist
Posted on Thursday, November 28 2019 02:36:00 PM in Fashion & Style by Rachel Salway
When you go shopping for clothes do you get depressed about how things look and end up feeling fat and fed up? Do you come away feeling low and think you’ll never find anything that looks good?
Or are you faced with a wardrobe full of clothes but can never find anything to wear? So you end up wearing the same thing time and time again, making you feel low in confidence and self-esteem? Believe me you are not alone in this! The key to knowing what looks good for you is understanding your style personality, how to dress for your body shape and getting the right colours for your skin tone. This is key to your transformation, because changing your image and the way you feel about yourself will change your life. Don’t know where to start? Let me break it down for you.
When we try something on and it’s just not right it will either be or a combination of the colour, the fit or the personality is just not right for you. The key to transforming how you look is all about getting the right colour and understanding how to dress for your body shape as well as dressing for your style personality. Once you have gone through these steps sorting your wardrobe out will be as easy as A-B-C.
When it comes to clothes, choosing colours that suit your skin tone can perform miracles. Colour is very powerful in changing your look, and wearing colours that suit your skin tone will enhance your best features and instantly make you look younger, slimmer and will naturally give you a face lift. Yes it’s true! Your skin will become clearer, dark lines, circles and blemishes will be reduced or even completely disappear. And equally the opposite can occur so rather than your complexion looking withdrawn and tired, you will look healthier, tanned and your eyes will pop with colour.
Wearing the right colour really can be that dramatic!
Remember what looks good on someone else does not mean it will look good on you, you are unique and beautiful so don’t compare yourself to others.
Lets talk about the science behind colour…
Take our primary colours red, yellow and blue. If we put red in the centre of the spectrum and add yellow we get warm colours and if we add blue to red we will get cool colours. This is the first thing you need to define. Do you suit warm or cool colours?
You can do this by looking at your veins on the inside of your wrist; if you have greener veins this means you suit warm colours and if your veins are more blue you will suit cool colours?
From there we need to look at colour saturation, do you suit pure vibrant colours or more muted greyed out tones?
You can do this by finding a place that is full of natural light and using a big mirror hold different colours up to your face.
If it’s the right colour:
- Your face will naturally lift and your eyes will pop with colour
- The appearance of your skin will look healthier and brighter, like you have a natural tan
- Your complexion will become clearer and you will notice dark circles disappear
- You will stand out rather than the colour you are holding
If it’s the wrong colour:
- You will notice dark shadows and circles around your eyes, neck or chin
- Your face will look drained of colour, dull, grey, sallow or tired
- The colour will stand out rather than You
If this all sounds a bit overwhelming and you cant figure it out, then help is at hand. We can complete a full colour analysis for you on a 1-2-1 basis or hold a class for a group who want to journey into colour together.
