Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • For you, with your high contrast, the more unusual the combination, the more striking. Some depth contrast can be created by pairing the lightest and darkest of one colour:
    • Lapis with Light Aqua. (Warm blues up with gold accessories.)
  • Instead of depth contrast, aim for high colour contrast:
    • A neutral with a bright accent colour, like Chocolate with Coral Pink
  • For depth or colour contrast combine just accent colours:
    • Kelly Green with Watermelon
  • In general, always aim for at least one bright colour in your outfit.
  • The brighter and lighter shades are best near your face.
  • One colour is trickier, if you do, make it one of your most vivid.
  • Mid to later life you may change to a COOL as your hair turns to grey or white.
  • As your natural colouring is highly contrasted, opt for bold, clear patterns with higher contrast between the elements rather than ones which blend too much.
  • Great patterns for you are geometric patterns or round and rectangular shapes mixed together. Abstract prints and hand-drawn elements are also good. Elements should be bigger and not too dense.

Don't do it ...
  • Colours with a cool undertone
  • Avoid muted tones
  • Icy, frosty colours
  • Two lights or two darks together
  • A single colour on its own
  • A monochromatic look
  • Avoid neutrals-only combinations
  • Patterns | Avoid small elements, very loose and very dense arrangements and natural floral patterns. If necessary, opt for stylised flowers.

Jewellery

Jewellery is best bright and shiny, polished finish. Matt finishes will clash with your naturally bright colouring. As a Clear & Warm, Gold looks amazing but is not the only metal that works for you. You can mix and match more easily than other palettes.

  • Gold | Rose Gold (peachy) | White Gold | Silver | Platinum
  • Gemstones in colours from your palette | Sapphire | Topaz | Emerald | Turquoise | Amethyst
Hair

Hair tones are from brown, to deep dark brown and black. You may have golden or copper highlights. Keep the base of your hair dark, use two to three shades of warm toned lowlights if you want to enhance your natural colour and don’t be tempted to go blonde. If you eventually go grey or white, your dominant palette may change to Cool.

Glasses

All the metals mentioned can work for glasses frames, as can any of the colours in the palette. Colourful, bright or dark frames are especially wonderful on you, as is a touch of sparkle. Make sure the lenses are non-reflective so your striking eyes remain visible.

Makeup

Your makeup as a Clear & Warm is at its best when it’s highly contrasted, colourful and bright. The vibrancy of your colouring and clarity of your look needs to be replicated in your makeup. Choose contrasting shades and clear bright tones. A natural look on you is a glowy and intense look rather than a no makeup look. It’s important to use at least one bright colour in your makeup as this is what will bring out your natural level of contrast. This is best achieved through lipstick. What is required is a bold lip paired with defined eye makeup.

  • Neutral eyeshadow colours are the Creams, like Champagne; Peach, Greys, Steel and Storm; and Taupes. You can easily wear dark eyeshadow, but don’t go too dark and avoid muddied soft colours.
  • For highlight and accent eyeshadow colours, opt for the brighter and more colourful colours on your palette. Darker Pinks, Purples, Blues and Greens look particularly nice. Delph, Purple, Midnight, Peppermint.
  • Make sure to avoid eyeshadows with very matt finishes, as those might dull your appearance, use a cream shimmer or add a highlight over the top.
  • Eye liner wise, anything darker than Granite might look too heavy on you. Instead, opt for brighter colours, Teal, Marine Blue, or Amethyst.
  • A Black-Brown or Black mascara is perfect for you, or a striking Navy.
  • Bronzer and shimmer highlighter enhance your look.
  • Your blush will need warmth to it, a pinky, a peach or coral like Salmon.
  • The best lipstick colours for you are intense. Gloss also works well. All types of peach, coral and pinks. Warm Pink, Coral, Red Velvet, and Cerise. They may seem bold but will look very natural on you due to the natural intensity of your appearance. Avoid dark, cool colours such as burgundy and plum. These would clash too much with your warmer complexion.
  • A Dramatic look can be achieved by intensifying your lips with an even brighter lip colour, or you can go for a smoky eye. But don’t make it too dark, as this would overwhelm you.

Went to see Nicki last week for a re rate appointment as it had been a long time since I had my colours done. Turns out I am completely different to what I originally thought! It was a bit of a shock realising I could wear all the colours I've been avoiding for years and finding out that my safety zones of blues arnt actually ideal for my colouring! Since my appointment I haven't stopped looking for new clothes that match my swatches I've already grabbed a few new pieces that I wouldn't have normally chosen but I actually really love once on! 😊 I also have tones of screenshots of clothes online that I'm looking to purchase and new outfit ideas it's very exciting 😀 even my partner now finds things in my colours and can see the difference in colours on me. Thankyou Nicki you've given me my confidence back! 🌟🥰

My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful Colour Up and Party Package and we cannot recommend Nicki more highly. From the moment we stepped through the door we were made to feel so welcome and Nicki’s expertise and passion for colour bowled us over. Nicki obviously loves what she does and her knowledge and enthusiasm was energising and infectious 🤗We were so interested to learn which colours suit us best and Nicki encouraged us all to experiment with lip colour too which was a game changer for all of us. Thank you so much Nicki from all of us - shopping will never be the same again - we will be forever grateful!

We had a great party with Nicki! She was really patient with us and took the time to explain everything. We really enjoyed pur afternoon and got some great tips, some new make up, and some scarves to get started on our new colour palettes.

I recently had a Full Works colour analysis session with Nikki, and it was absolutely fantastic! From the moment I walked in, she was incredibly friendly and made me feel at ease right away. The experience was not only enjoyable but also extremely informative. Nikki provided me with a swatch booklet that has been a game-changer for refreshing my wardrobe. Now, shopping for clothes for my holiday is a breeze! She gave me detailed insights into the colours that suit me best, even down to the perfect jewellery, makeup looks and hair tones. I left the session feeling confident and excited about my new look. If you're considering a colour analysis, I highly recommend Nikki. She is knowledgeable, professional, and truly delightful to work with!

A thoroughly enjoyable experience in beautiful surroundings. Nicki has a high level of passion and knowledge about everything colour related. You gain a wealth of information during the session as well as follow up information afterwards. I'm very much looking forward to sorting through my wardrobe and experimenting with colours I never thought would suit me. Thank you. X

My mum and I had a wonderful time with Nicki and came away with a much better idea of how to pick colours and clothing that will make us look and feel our best. Nicki is a great host and very approachable, give it a go!

Thank you so much for an enlightening and informative morning. You were fabulous to work with on my colour epiphany journey. It was just so lovely to share the moment with Grace, my 17 year old daughter too and you were lovely with her. I want to go shopping immediately!!! I will keep you posted on my wardrobe additions. I am definitely going to embrace more colour and you have inspired me, so thank you.
