Have you ever wondered why some colors look great on you, while others make you look dull or washed out? The answer lies in color analysis, a combination of art and science.

Color analysis is the process of finding out which colors suit your skin tone, hair color, and eye color best. It's based on the idea that different colors have different effects on how we perceive ourselves and others. By knowing our best colors, we can enhance our appearance, confidence, and style. It is generally agreed that the wrong colors draw attention to flaws (wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne) while harmonious colors enhance natural beauty and create a healthy appearance. A certified color analyst can also advise on how to choose clothes, makeup, hair color, and accessories that look best on you based on your best colors.

Why is color analysis important, you ask? Well, for starters, it can save you a lot of time and money. Imagine never having to try on dozens of outfits in the dressing room, only to find out that none of them look good on you. Imagine never having to buy clothes that end up collecting dust in your closet, because you never feel confident wearing them. Imagine always knowing what colors to wear for any occasion, whether it's a job interview, a date, or a party.

But more importantly, color analysis can boost your self-esteem and happiness. Wearing colors that flatter you can make you feel more attractive, confident, and comfortable in your own skin. You can express your personality and mood through your clothing choices and create a positive impression on others. You can also have more fun with fashion, experimenting with different styles and combinations.

So how do you find out what colors suit you best? Well, there are different methods and systems of color analysis, but as a certified color analyst with Style by Color, I look at your dominant color characteristics to determine your color code: warm or cool, clear, or light, deep, or soft.

When we work together, I’ll determine your color code, by looking at three things: your skin tone, your hair color, and your eye color. I also look at the contrast of colors on you, as well as the intensity and value. Intensity refers to how bright or muted colors are, while value refers to how light or dark colors are.

Based on these factors, I can determine if you look best in dark colors, bright colors, or more muted colors.  Will leopard print look better on you than zebra print? Will gold accessories look best or does silver look better? What is your best lipstick color?  All these questions, and more, are covered in our consultations.

Color analysis is not a rigid set of rules that limit your choices. It's a fun and easy way to discover what makes you look amazing and feel confident. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and discover your true colors! You'll be amazed by how much they can transform your appearance and your life, and I would love to have you sit in my color consultation chair!
