Color Analysis Myths
There is a lot of information about color analysis, about how to find your undertones, what makeup to wear with your skin tone, etc.
Some of it is fine, but there is way too much wrong information out there.
It confuses people and, quite frankly, does a disservice to the field of color analysis. Color Analysts struggle to be taken seriously some times, fighting agains the
belief that color analysis is outdated and just not accurate.
In response, I created a report of the top myths that are prevalent in our field. And need to be addressed.
If you haven't read my free report "Top 15 Myths of Color Analysis", you can now download it instantly. Just click the button on the bottom page.
Below are just a couple of highlights from the report. These are some of the most persistent myths regarding Color Analysis, and it drives me crazy.
Myth: Look at your veins to see if you are cool or warm
I see this all the time. But veins cannot tell you what your season is. It cannot indicate what your undertones are. Period.
Myth: Anyone can be any season, (i.e. 'there are no rules')
In other words, according to this myth, a light, ashy blonde with cool blue eyes and cool skin could potentially be a Deep Winter, if that is how she 'drapes' out.
Or a flaming redhead with green eyes and freckles could be a Cool Summer.
This is nonsense.
Take a look at this woman below. She is clearly a Winter. She doesn't need to be draped to find this out. But believing that *maybe* she could be an Autumn opens up the possibility for some analyst to make that mistake.
The warm, muted colors look muddy on her. The cool clear colors makes her shine.
Knowing the different categories of seasons is crucial in determining one's season.
Don't believe that anyone can be any season. There are parameters to each category and a well-trained consultant will be able to find your correct one.
