FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Color and Style Analysis
How is Color Analysis done?
During your color consultation, I will compare different color drapes to determine the warmth or coolness of your skin and will match coded color coordinates to your skin, hair and eyes to determine your unique color harmony. This computer-assisted process will result in your unique clothing color palette and personal recommendations for makeup colors. The optional complimentary makeup lesson results in a convincing "before and after" transformation.
What is included in your Color Analysis consultation?
The consultation takes about 1 ½ to 2 hours and is divided into 2 appointments. In your first appointment, you will get your color analysis and your makeover (optional) . During the makeover, I’ll show you how to apply foundation, eye makeup, lipstick, and blush that will harmonize with you. You won’t have to guess which makeup colors and shades flatter you the most anymore!
In your second appointment, you will receive your color palette that comes in a fitted case, plus an explanation on how to use your palette in building your wardrobe and selecting accessories and makeup. You’ll also receive a written analysis and handouts with supporting information about your coloring.
Does image really matter? Isn't the inside more important than the outside?
Well, of course. However your image is your loudest voice, the first and sometimes only chance you get to let the world know who you think you are. The objective is to bring your appearance into harmony with your inner being, so that it advocates for you rather than against you.
Why would I need help to figure out what to wear?
There are so many choices out there! It's great to have options, but no one has time to try everything. Without guidance, it's easy to pick more or less randomly, yet realize that you could and should look better than you do. My goal is to educate you so that you can quickly and easily narrow the field to the styles and colors that will do best for you.
Are you going to tell me I can't wear black?
No! You can wear whatever you want to wear, of course. I simply will show you the colors I think will suit you best. You can elevate the effect of even the least flattering colors by combining them with some of your better choices, particularly when used close to the face.
If my hair is almost black, am I a Winter?
Not necessarily. Many people believe that all Asians, for example, are Winters due to their dark hair and contrasting coloring. In fact all seasons are represented in any ethnic group, although certain ones may dominate.
Should I match my makeup to my clothing?
You can if you want to, but it is more important that both your clothing and your makeup coordinate with you. If that is true, makeup and clothing will work together well enough. If you are wearing a clothing color in a lipstick shade, however, you will look your best if your blush and lipstick colors come from the same hue.
What if I don't want to wear makeup?
Not a problem at all! You will still benefit from Color & Style Analysis for your clothing and accessories.
