Yesterday I went and had my “colours done” It was something I’d always fancied doing and never really got around to. My mum & dad kindly bought me a voucher for a colour analysis for Christmas so I booked up and went along. Jill (my consultant) was lovely. Really friend & chatty. And not too scarily matching either! She worked out that I was “Cool” (I would think that goes without saying 😉 ) and that my secondary element was soft. This means that I can wear black (yipee!) but navy & charcoal look much better. Teal is *my* colour and I can wear hot pinks too. There are no yellows, oranges or browns in my colour palette. No sludgy greens and only 1 kind of red. But lots of blues, greys, greens & pinks. I was really happy with my selection and it was a relief that I don’t have to wear mustard! (Apparently very few people suit mustard).
Jill also did me some make-up. Tinted moisturiser is amazing! And she showed me how to put on blusher which I’ve never used. We then moved onto lipstick. I don’t suit reds 😦 She said if I was desperate to wear red lipstick then I would have to get a blue-red but that I’d look much better in a pinky/plum colour. Which she showed me and I have to concede – it did look much better. So I don’t have a red lipstick but it’s as red as I’m going to get! I just have to get used to wearing something that bright!
All in all it was a great morning and well worth doing. I would definitely recommend the process and Jill in particular. I am now fully-armed ready to clear out my wardrobe and go shopping!
