Let's look at some of the benefits of colour analysis:
Knowing the colours that suit you means that you won't waste time in the shops looking at colours that are wrong for you.
The correct colours will harmonise with your colouring and make you look younger and more vibrant.
You will get compliments and that will lead to increased confidence.
Wearing the wrong colours means that the opposite is true - you look drab and older than you really are, the wrong colours will not harmonise with your colouring and you may end up hating everything in your wardrobe!
When I do a colour analysis I use the tonal method, which means that everyone falls into one of 6 colour directions - deep, light, cool, warm, bright or muted. Using test drapes I compare deep against light, cool against warm and bright against muted, looking at how the colours harmonise with your hair, skin and eyes. Everyone has a secondary colour characteristic too, so you could be, for example, deep and warm or bright and cool. You will receive a swatch booklet with all the colours that are correct for you so that when you go shopping you can see which clothing colours to buy that blend with the swatch.
Looking at the colour wheel above, everyone can wear any colour but you have to wear the right shade for you.
Most people have 'wrong' colours in their wardrobe, so rather than throwing everything out, there are ways to wear those colours so the item of clothing isn't wasted. This particularly applies to black, which 70% of the population buy!
