The Power of Colour

The Power of Colour

The Power of Colour:

“When I was a young girl, I wanted so much to be pretty.

Studying myself in the mirror, I saw a pale, colourless face and decided that I really wasn’t pretty at all.

While the powder blue uniform required at my school made some of the girls look marvellous it did nothing for me. In fact, it made me look grey, dull and lifeless.

The colour of that uniform robbed me of some potentially good feelings about myself well into adult life…….

After having my colouring analysed by a professional Colour Consultant, I found that I do not look pale, and lifeless after all – as long as I wear a colour (the right blue, for example) that brings out the glow of my natural colouring.”

-Carole Jackson, Colour Me Beautiful

That’s the power of colour – it’s not just about what you wear – it’s about how you feel in what you wear.

Each of us has a unique skin tone, and combined with hair and eye colour, gives us our own overall colouring.

We use the seasons to describe people’s colouring.

Just as nature has divided herself into four distinct seasons, your genes have given you your own unique colouring that is complimented by one of these seasonal palettes.

Autumns look fabulous in colours of that season – warm browns, rusts, yellows oranges and warm greens;  Springs shine in clear, delicate colours with yellow undertones; A Winter will look fabulous in vivid, pure colours and cool, icy shades; while summers sparkle in softer, muted colours of the ocean and sky with cool, blue undertones.

Once you discover your Season you will learn which colours make you look gorgeous every day. You can then apply this to your wardrobe, hair, makeup and accessories, and from there, plan your wardrobe easily with every item in your wardrobe matching!
