Wearing the right colours can lift your complexion, brighten your eye colour and hair, take years off your age, and most importantly, brighten your mood, making you feel more confident.
I am also really interested in the Psychology of Colour, as it can really impact our mood and how we feel. Often clients will believe that there are certain colours which they ‘can’t’ wear even though they might love them. With most colours, it is just a case of finding the right shade to work with your complexion. As Karen Haller says in her Little Book of Colour ‘there is a yellow for everyone. It is just a matter of finding the right one for you.’
I’m also a great believer in breaking the rules where necessary! As an Autumn colour type myself, I really shouldn’t wear black as it is draining on my warm complexion. But black is one of my favourite colours and perfect for wardrobe staples. I love a black and white outfit and instead of banning black from my wardrobe, I mix in warm colours and neutrals that also help to lift my complexion. Working in rusts, orange, mustard yellows, red and khaki or a splash of pattern. Or I add in a bright warm coral or red lip to lift my face.
