  1. Who are colour me beautiful? What do they stand for and what makes them so special?

 

colour me beautiful’s expert consultants offer consultations in colour analysis, personal styling, wardrobe audits and personal shopping experiences.

Our range of services are designed to help you enhance your look for a fabulous and confident new you.

Our mission is to empower women to have the means to look and feel amazing every day. We believe a well-dressed woman is a confident, happy and successful woman and that everybody, no matter their age, dress size, colouring or budget should feel fabulous in every possible way, every single day.

  1. Im too young to have my colours done – you have to be over 60, at least!

 

Why spend a lifetime wearing colours that don’t work for you when you could enjoy combining new tones and shades in ways that will truly compliment you so you look and feel amazing, every day!

Colour analysis is for EVERYONE, no matter their age!

Wearing the right colours makes your skin glow and your eyes sparkle – you will look and feel more youthful. We all have colours that we know don’t work for us, they may leave us feeling washed out or grey – how fabulous would it be to discover which colours make you look AMAZING and which to avoid so you never have a drab day again?

  1. I live in black – youll make me give it up and I dont want to!

 

We never tell someone they can’t wear a particular colour, particularly if it’s a staple in their wardrobe, this includes black!

What we will do though is show you how to wear certain colours, to ensure they work with your natural colouring, rather than against it. This may be by combining it with other shades, or accessorising to keep darker tones away from your face. You never know, black may even be in your colour palette!

Love colour, love style, love yourself. Love colour me beautiful.

  1. I had my colours done 20 years ago, I dont need to do it again.

 

Over time our skin tone, hair colour and even eye colour may change, meaning the colours we wear in our clothes and make-up may also need to be tweaked.

We also changed from our seasonal colour system to the Munsell System ten years ago, this means the way we categorise your dominant colouring and the palette you should wear may differ slightly from when you last had your colours done.

You may not need to come for a full colour analysis but if it is 20 years since your colour session it is worth enquiring with your local consultant as to whether you could come along for a colour refresh to check that your palette is still working in harmony with your colouring as it is today.

  1. Im more interested in how to dress for my body shape and getting style advice, colour me beautiful only advise about colour.

 

Whilst we are most famous for our colour analysis services, our consultants actually offer a whole range of personal styling services.

From colour analysis through to style consultations (where you will discuss your personal style personality, body shape and clothes, fabrics, fits to suit you); personal shopping, wardrobe audits, capsule wardrobe workshops and parties are other services we offer.

There are many options for you to choose from to suit all your personal styling needs!

  1. Im worried youll tell me that everything in my wardrobe is wrong.

 

Whether you come for a colour analysis or style consultation, you won’t be told that everything in your wardrobe is wrong.

Our aim is to help you get the most out of your existing clothes by providing guidance on colours and styles that work for your body shape, colouring and your style personality. There are infinite ways of combining colours to make them work best for each individual and often small tweaks to clothing can transform them to work perfectly for your body shape.

We guarantee that you won’t have been dressing without getting the colours and styles of your clothes right at least some of the time – often it’s just a few small tweaks or additions to your existing wardrobe that’s needed.

  1. Im happy with the colours I wear, why do I need to change?

 

Having a colour analysis session will open up your mind and your wardrobe to a whole array of colours you may not have even considered before.

If you’re happy with the colours you’re already wearing that’s great! We’ll simply give you some more options to add into the mix and advice on how to get the most out of the colours you’re wearing to ensure they’re working for you, to look your absolute best!

  1. I don’t wear make-up, therefore I dont see the point of having my colours done.

 

If you don’t wear make-up then there’s even more reason to come for a colour analysis!

Wearing the right depth, undertone and clarity of colours next to your face will ensure your skin glows and your eyes sparkle. It will also eliminate dark shadows and prevent you from looking pale or ‘washed out’ – wearing the right colours has a truly transformational effect, meaning you will look fabulous – with or without make-up!

  1. I hate wearing bright colours!

 

That’s no problem! Not only do we tailor your colours to suit how you look, we also take into account your style personality, lifestyle and personal preferences.

Our goal is to make you look and feel amazing by providing you with colours and guidelines that not only suit you but that you also feel comfortable in. If bright colours aren’t your thing we will ensure you leave with a selection of shades that will work for you and that you’ll enjoy wearing.

  1. What do your bridal services offer? Could my local wedding dress shop not just advise me on my dress choice?

 

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so it’s only natural you will want every detail to be perfect.

  1. The consultations are too expensive.

 

Think of all the unworn or ‘worn once’ items of clothing in your wardrobe – over the years how much money would you estimate those items added up to?

A colour or style consultation will take the guess work out of shopping, ensuring that you make the right choices every time. It will also demonstrate to you how to build a capsule wardrobe of clothes so that what you buy can be worn in many different ways time and again.

  1. Im a working Mum with a young family, I dont have time to come for a full image makeover!

 

We understand that in today’s busy world time is of the essence, and there are lots of options available if you can’t afford to take four hours out of your day for a full makeover experience.

Your local consultant will be able to break your session into two parts – 2 hours for colour and 2 hours for style, which can be done on separate days. Alternatively, enquire about colour me beautiful events in your area via our events page – our consultants often hold parties, open houses or workshops which are perfect for those short on time.

  1. I have no sense of style, this just isnt for me.

 

We all have a sense of style – we just need to discover it!

Your consultant will guide you through which colours, clothes, fabrics and styles are suited to you, providing you with the knowledge to allow you to easily identify what works for you and what doesn’t.

The result? You become happier and more comfortable with your style. With the information you receive you will know exactly what works for you and why – we guarantee your look will be transformed and you will feel amazing!

  1. My son has just finished university and is about to attend his first job interview. He really needs to lose the ‘studentlook – do you offer any services that would benefit him?

 

Yes! It’s not just women who we offer makeover services for, we have a range of services for men too!

Our ‘Image for Men’ service will show your son what is special about his natural colouring and build, and by taking his personality and lifestyle into account, one of our consultants will give him some simple guidelines to help him make the correct choices, faster.
