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.

What Color Analysis can do for you

    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
  • Everything harmonizes
  • Can make you look younger and more refreshed

This is what color analysis is all about: wearing colors to make you look your absolute best. It is truly one of the most effective beauty tools at your disposal. 

What is Color Analysis NOT about?

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. 

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.
