What Color Type Are You And How To Find The Best Colors For You

Why should you bother taking a Color Analysis?

 

With the right colors your eyes, skin and hair glow. Imperfections (dark eye circles, discolorations, etc.) are reduced which means that you need less makeup. You’ll appear bright and alert. Just imagine how time-saving it is to have your power colors at the back of your mind. Isn’t it a treat to put on a color and feel fantastic in it? I believe that taking a seasonal color type analysis will give you a sense of direction of what type of colors (cool, warm, deep, light, clear, muted) look fabulous on you. It simplifies shopping and you’ll have a wardrobe full of clothes that you want to wear 🙂 

 

So what color type are you or what are your favorite colors?

 

You look pale and your skin looks pale,too. The shadows under your eyes appear more than usual and you feel tired. Even the unloved wrinkles are more apparent?

No panic…!!! Can be a simple reason. Namely, you’ve made the wrong color choice with your clothes and the color of your outerwear don’t match to your natural skin tone, eye and hair color. Then you absolutely need a good color type analysis, which is always contained in a good image- and style-consulting.

For all color types, the basic rule of combining the color applies: The garments of the upper part and the accessories should be from the first 10 main colors of the respective color-type color wheel, which harmonize with your skin, eye and hair color excellently. These colors will highlight your natural beauty. The lower part like trousers and skirts can also be combined with other colors. But the best is to use the colors of the right color palette.
