A colour consulation isn't about becoming chicer...you get that from instyle or Vogue. These magazines are put together by experts who know all about proportion and style clarity. They show us how to combine trendy and basic items to create a harmonious whole. A colour consultation is about who you are...in relation to colour. If chic is about successfully combining clothing and accessories...elegance is about the person shining though. Elegance reduces clothing and accessories to the essential...so the woman is seen first. This may be minamalist...it may be decorative...depending on the woman.

Having your colours done...may mean letting go. Of how you wish to be or think you need to be...because we can't choose our contrast level...it simply is...low, ,medium or high. We can 't choose our eye or skin colour...and if neither have been valued and appreciated...you might find them drab and mousy..or too strong and overpowering. Even if the colours love you...you may not intially love them. So what is the point then? On this wonderful journey of colour....you are the expert. Yes you learn the colours in your skin, hair and eyes..this is the first part of a consultation. Then we work with photos from art, nature and interior design...where you instinctively know what is right for you. The minute you start making choices away from fashion...where your instinct may have been messed with...YOU KNOW!

Learn your 5 color palettes: inherent, understated, romatic, dramatic, intimate. 

Your colors open up a rich,deep, complex and exhilarating world. It is a journey to understand and value all your colours. In time you will come to love...all shades of you. And  understand which colours make your exquisite beauty shine....and which less so.  Most importantly...you will be empowered to choose what you love. If you truly love a color...it comes from a place deep in your soul...and is exactly the right colour for you!
