Why would you want to employ the services of a Colour Image Consultant? How could you possibly benefit from anything one has to say?
Well, if you've never used the services of a Colour Image Consultant - or a Personal Image Consultant, as they're sometimes known - you could be surprised at what you learn about yourself.
It's a fact - you feel better when you look good. Your confidence level goes up, as does your self-esteem. If you think that sounds pretty shallow, don't feel bad about it - feeling good about yourself is not only to be recommended, but positively encouraged!
A Colour Image Consultant can provide a variety of services, tailored around your personal requirements. To begin with, she will ask you various questions - by finding out a little about you, and your likes and dislikes - she will have a better idea of what will, or won't, suit your personality before she gets to work.
She can advise you on your wardrobe, your hair and your makeup, taking the time to show you how, and why, certain colours and styles bring out the best in you. If you need fashion assistance, she can be your personal shopper for a few hours, giving you totally honest and unbiased opinions as you shop, and helping you to find clothes that look great on you. She can even show you how to streamline your wardrobe by choosing just a few items, in contrasting colours, which can all be teamed with each other to create multiple different outfits.
Whether you're simply looking for a little boost to help lift your spirits, or a complete makeup, hair and wardrobe overhaul, you could do a lot worse than to check out the services offered by a Colour Image Consultant.
For example, getting your colours done is a great way to find out how you can make your already gorgeous self, that little bit moreso.
Let's say that your favourite colour is orange. All the clothes in your wardrobe are every shade of orange, your accessories are orange and your makeup is orange. Well, a Colour Image Consultant will show you that - whilst orange is your favourite colour - it might not be the colour which shows you off at your best. Alternatively, she may tell you that orange is the most amazing colour for you, and show you which colours to wear with it to achieve the best overall look.
Similar to those used by a fashion stylist, a Colour Image Consultant will use techniques to determine which colours suit you best. As you sit facing a mirror, you will be able to see the effects that different colours have on your skin tone and appearance. For example, your favourite bright orange may look great on the hanger, but once it's up against you, it could make you look washed-out and pasty-faced.
Conversely, a rich brown, deep green or vibrant cerise could bring your face to life, quite literally, before your eyes - it really is something you have to see, to believe quite how amazing the transformations can be. Colours that you never considered wearing before could end up being the colours that suit you best, and your Colour Image Consultant will not only show you what these colours are, but how to wear them for maximum effect.
When it comes to hair and makeup, your Colour Image Consultant will demonstrate which colours are best suited to your natural colouring for eye and face makeup, lipstick and hair colour. She will show you how to apply your makeup to help achieve a fresh and natural daytime look, or a bolder, more dramatic evening look, as well as helping you to find a hairstyle which looks absolutely amazing. It is said that the right haircut can take years off you - how bad could that be?!
Once it's been established which colours are ‘your’ colours, you will be given a swatch of these to keep. Take this with you when you go shopping for clothes or makeup, although pretty soon, you will know instinctively what colours show you at your best. An image consultant can help in other ways. As well as learning about your colours you will also get:
- Colour information from top to toe including hair advice including all the history and technical facts about colour. - A complete make up session. - Your own personal swatch with all your colours to take shopping with you so you can always choose the right colours - which will save you lots of money in the future by helping you avoid colours that just don’t suit you.
A session with a Colour Image Consultant really can work wonders. Whether you look upon it as self-improvement, a confidence boost, or simply luxuriating in the pleasure of getting a colour analysis done, you're bound to end up with a spring in your step and your morale sky high!
