They will instantly make you look more radiant; your skin, eyes and even your teeth will look healthier, whiter and brighter. There will be an instant ‘glow’ that emanates because your signature colour harmonises so well with the colour of your natural features. Signature colours can be used to best effect when you wish to make an excellent first impression such as a job interview, a romantic date, a speaking engagement, a business promotion, marketing advertisement, or special event. These are the times when wearing one of your signature colours will mean that you are projecting the very best version of yourself; your audience will find you more appealing and most importantly, you will feel an innate sense of confidence knowing that the colours you are wearing look fantastic on you. Wearing one of your ‘knockout colours’ means you are more likely to leave a positive and lasting impression.
A signature colour can also be deemed as one that enhances or intensifies your features and makes them appear more striking. Any colour worn above the waist in the form of clothing, accessories (scarves, hijabs, jewellery etc.), makeup and hair colour can enhance or intensify your look. Learning about your ‘special’ colours will make such a difference when you go to select new eyewear, simply purchase a new lipstick, or decide what colour to dye your hair, including lowlights and highlights. An ‘enhancer’ is a hue that is the same, or very similar value and intensity, to the colour of your natural hair, eye, or skin colour. Selecting eyewear, or eye makeup in colours that mimic the colour of these particular features will harmonise with your natural tones and create an aesthetically appealing appearance. For example, brown eyes can be enhanced with values of brown including cocoa, caramel and taupe eye shadows, or, eyeliner. However, it’s always important to consider the correct level of contrast that suits your specific colour direction. If low contrasting colours wash you out, then select eyewear, for example, that creates a medium contrast with your eyes and hair colour. Contrast is another very important element that you will learn about when you undertake a personal colour analysis with me.
