What’s My Colour

Determining your colours is so much fun! With the RIGHT COLOURS, you can build a completely coordinated wardrobe, choose the right makeup, and create a new image that will truly reflect YOU!

There are two main steps:

  • 1) Select the colors you have consistently worn with success throughout your lifetime
  • 2) Evaluate your coloring- your skin, hair, and eyes.

STEP 1: YOUR COLOUR HISTORY

From the group of colors below, select which you feel is most flattering to you in general.  You will intuitively know whether you are better in cool or warm colors.

STEP 2: YOUR COLORING – THE SKIN TONE TEST

This test is to verify your selection in Step 1.

Set up a long mirror in front of you and look at yourself under natural light. Take a good long look at your skin, your eyes and hair without makeup. If your hair/weave is colored, try and reminder the natural colour.

Your skin tone comes from three pigments: melanin (brown), carotene (yellow) or hemoglobin (red), and it is the particular combination of three pigments that make up your skin tone. When looking at your face, imagine the skin as a thin filter, it is the tone just under its surface that determines whether your coloring is warm or cool.

Summers and winters, the cool seasons, have blue undertones, while autumns and springs have golden undertones.

TIP: All Africans and dark skinned beauties will fall under Autumn or Winter, as we do not have Haemoglobin in our skin, all light skinned and Caucasians can be from any of the four categories.

Now, if you’ve succeeded in ascertaining whether you are a cool or warm season, scroll back to the table above and check if you are wearing the right colours for you.
