It seems obvious, you’ve got big brown eyes or hazel eyes, you must be an Autumn, right? Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that. That is why so many women so often get their hair colour or make up shades wrong.

The make-up artist (who hasn’t been trained on Colour Analysis by the way) will assume, because you have brown eyes or hazel eyes, you’ll suit brown or gold eye shadows, as the colours complement each other. Or your hairdresser may assume your hazel eyes will be enhanced with caramel locks. You yourself might confidently assume a khaki coat will bring out those lovely hazel eyes of yours. Well, what if I told you those warm tones could actually be working against you? Ageing you, making you look yellow, jaundice even, or could be making your cheeks look chubby and your jawline undefined?

This is the why colour analysis is the most genius tool, you’re walking around making assumptions but when your Colour Analyst drapes you with the four different season shades of green: Autumn, Winter, Spring or Summer, you will instantly see whether khaki or a warm green is working for or against you. It doesn’t matter what age you are, if you’re a man or a woman, you will see it right in front of you in the mirror, “the drapes don’t lie” is our saying at Style ME.

This is why, I personally love doing colour analysis sessions because even me, after probably doing 1000 colour analysis sessions (that’s no exaggeration) in the past 15 years, I simply can’t tell you what season you are unless I’ve got my drapes around you. Don’t get me wrong, I can make a guess but that’s all it will be, a guess.

The only way to know for sure what your season is, is to get your colours done. Once we know if you are light or dark, bright, or muted or have a cool or warm undertone you’ll know exactly what colours will suit you then you can confidently go to your hairdresser or to the make-up artist and ask for that exact tone, you become the expert on you!
