Have you ever had a colour analysis or wondered what it’s all about? Colour analysis looks at your natural colouring - skin, eyes, lips and hair - and what colours are therefore going to flatter you. Wearing colours that harmonise with your natural colouring are more flattering than colours that don’t. Having a colour analysis makes you think about your wardrobe in a completely different way.
“My swatch has transformed how I think about everything I wear.”
Here are 7 reasons why you need to know your best colours:
SHOPPING BECOMES MUCH EASIER
Imagine if you walked into a shop and immediately honed in on the colours that suit you and ignored the rest of the shop. Shopping becomes so much quicker and easier as you’re no longer wasting time on the items in colours that don’t work so well for you. You can shop with focus and purpose and feel more confident heading into shops that you previously found overwhelming (hello Zara!).
YOUR WARDROBE POTENTIAL EXPANDS
When your wardrobe is full of clothes from the same colour palette, everything works together - so you have loads more outfits because everything mixes and matches. You don’t need more clothes, you just need items that work together - your wardrobe could actually contain fewer items yet many more outfits!
GETTING DRESSED IS SIMPLE
You can pick any items from your wardrobe with the confidence that the colours work together. All you need to worry about is the overall silhouette of the outfit!
YOU NEED LESS MAKEUP
Because the colours you’re wearing enhance and flatter your skin, hair and eyes and the colours reflect on your skin literally in a positive light. So you’ll find you need less make up to cover any blemishes and imperfections. When you’re wearing the wrong colours, you might get asked if you’re tired - even when you’re not. When you wear the right colours, your skin looks healthy and glowing.
YOU BECOME THE FOCUS
When your clothes ‘clash’ with your natural colouring, there is a disconnect and the clothes (and therefore your body) become the focus. When you wear colours that harmonise, your face becomes the focus.
YOU STOP WASTING MONEY
We all have items we’ve bought because we’ve seen them online or on our favourite Instagram influencer (I used to be so guilty of this!) but you never feel quite right in them. It could very well be because the colour isn’t working for you. When you have a colour palette to work with, you no longer spend money on clothes that don’t flatter your colouring.
YOU HAVE MORE CONFIDENCE
When you know that you’re wearing colours that flatter you, you feel more confident PLUS you’ll get more compliments! And you have more confidence to go into those overwhelming shops armed with your new-found knowledge!
