What is Color Analysis?
Simply put, Color Analysis is the act of studying a person’s natural coloring (skin, hair and eyes) and recommending the appropriate set of colors that will harmonize with and enhance that person’s coloring.
The wrong colors:
“Sit” on skin
Make others notice the color first, not YOU
Can be Aging
Can make you look ill
Emphasize negative areas
The right colors:
“Melt into” your skin; Others notice YOU first
Make your eyes pop
Can make you look younger and more refreshed
What Color Analysis is NOT
Color Analysis is not about matching colors to your personality. Style personality is important. But a bright personality does not necessarily mean that person has to wear bright colors. And a reserved, quiet person doesn't have to wear soft, muted colors.
Style is about what's INSIDE. Color Analysis is about what is on the OUTSIDE. And matching your clothes and accessories to match it.
Your Style Personality can come through by utilizing your palette of colors, regardless of what season you are. But if you use only your best colors, everything else is improved and YOU and your personality will be noticed first. Your colors will enhance, not distract, from your look.
Color Analysis is also NOT about matching colors to your body shape. There is a train of thought that a person's body shape will reveal here 'season' and tell her the best colors she should wear. Soft, shapely bodies should wear soft colors; dramatically shaped bodies should wear dramatic colors and so forth.
I don't believe in this at all. Wearing colors that harmonize with your skin, eyes and hair is all you need to focus on. Body shape is not a factor.
