Basic colour analysis

I can’t quite explain in words just HOW important it is to find the right colours for your skin tone! People tend to look more deeply into the style of their clothing rather than the colour. But the right colours can transfer your whole look! They can enhance the colour of your hair, teeth, eyes and facial glow. The wrong colours tend to completely wash you out. In my eyes there are two basic skin tones; cool and warm. In short, the veins on the underside of your arms (from your wrist to you middle arm) determine which category you come under.  If your veins appear blue, you’ve got blue or white undertones, meaning you’re a cool skin tone. If your veins appear green, you have yellow undertones and are therefore warm.


Cool Skin Tone – Black, red, vibrant pink, navyraspberry, emerald greens, royal blue, plum

Tip: Additionally wear icy tones instead of pastels for a lighter colour. Cool skin tones should avoid beige, orange and gold.

Warm Skin ToneEarth colors, tan, deep yellow,  sage greens, gold, bronzes, monochrome

Tip: For a softer color try peach, apricot yellow.

Please note: This is a very basic skin analysis and only touches the surface. For a full colour analysis please contact myself and I can guide you through the next stages. I can also list a number of professional companies in the UK that you can book in with.
