We have recently been inspired by the Colour Me Beautiful book by Carol Jackson & wanted to pass our newfound knowledge on to our beautiful Willow & Fli Community - Her Objective is to help you...
Discover Your Natural Beauty Through the Colors That Make You Look Great and Feel Fabulous
We LOVE the sound of that.
The summarised version from our understanding is everyone has a unique group of colors that makes them look their best. This is usually determined by Your Skin undertone (warm or cool) Eye & Hair Colour.
HINT: Look at your veins. If you see blue or purple veins, you’re most likely cool-toned, and if you see green, you’re warm.
Eyes - Generally, cool toned people have blue, gray or green eyes, and warm toned people have brown, hazel or amber eyes. Golden flecks usually indicate warm & grey or blue flecks would indicate cool.
Natural Hair colour - cool tones will have silver or ash undertones and warm tones will have red, orange or yellow undertones.
These are then broken up again into seasons; Summer, Winter, Autumn, Spring & then Shades; Deep, clear, light, warm, soft.
Check out this example of our colour analysis.
You might have cool skin, warm eyes & cool hair which makes settling on just one season quite difficult - but there is no rule saying you can't be a mixture of seasons.
The results aren't always clear until you start holding colours up to your face and taking a closer look at what makes you feel your best. It's really about which shades make you look and feel fresh.
We aren't saying you should only wear these colours. You can wear every color of the rainbow if it makes you happy because happiness really does shine through from the inside & make us look beautiful.
We want you to look & feel your absolute best, so let us take the guess work out of it for you, Watch this space for our series on 'Building Your Clothing Personality Through Colour'.
Much Love, The Willow & Fli Girls.
