Cool & Clear

YOUR LOOK IS COOL AND BRIGHT

Your colouring combines coolness with brightness. The stunning colours you have are cool with a clear blue undertone. From icy to bright colours, the high contrast in your palette ensures combinations for your outfits can be as contrasting as your natural appearance.

With your secondary palette as Clear, clothes and makeup that have clarity and a vibrancy to them will enhance your colouring. Personal style will also always influence how you wear your clothes and the colour combinations you prefer.

Helpful Hints

Neutral & Accent

Contrasting Accents

Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • You look best in medium to deep colours.
  • Though your natural colour contrast is high, it is not extreme. A neutral and an accent colour will always look striking.
  • Pair lighter neutrals with a darker or brighter accent, such as Charcoal with Blue Green.
  • Or combine darker neutrals with lighter, brighter accent colours, such as Dark Navy and Duck Egg.
  • For depth or colour contrast combine just accent colours:
    • Cassis and Baby Pink (depth contrast).
  • The classic colour combination of black and white is perfect on you.
  • Great patterns for Cool & Clear are bold, highly contrasted, black and white, and brightly coloured – in keeping with the bright, saturated colours on the palette. Look for geometric patterns or round and rectangular shapes mixed together. Abstract prints are also great.
Don't do it ...
  • Colours with a warm undertone
  • Muted Colours
  • A neutrals-only look
  • Extreme contrast – pairing colours that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, such as True Green and Blue-Red, can be overpowering.
  • Patterns | avoid small prints as well as anything faded or blended (eg. watercolour prints). Natural floral patterns are best avoided. If you want to wear floral patterns, opt for highly stylised flowers.

Jewellery

Jewellery is best shiny, clear and sparkly. It works beautifully with your sharp, clear colouring and is a great way of adding contrasting colour.

  • Silver | Platinum | White Gold
  • Cool hued gem stones from your palette
Hair

Cool hair tones have a huge variety from pure white, to grey, to cool dark brown and ebony, also salt and pepper. There are no natural highlights, and the hair is either neutral or ashy. If you are ash blonde you will grey gracefully, but keep the tones of highlight ash or platinum based. For dark hair try plum and burgundy lowlights. Your hair may eventually become a grey, silver or pure white. 

Glasses

Always choose a frame that is a colour, or metal from your palette. Contrasting colours will work well.

Makeup

Cool & Clear colours are cool, bright, and range from very light to very dark, repeating your natural highly contrasted and intense colouring. One important thing to remember for your makeup look is that both your eyes and your lips must have the same intensity. Don’t go for just a bold lip with minimum eye makeup. It will unbalance your face. Your makeup is at its best when it’s similarly contrasted, cool and crisp.

  • Use similar tones to those in your palette with a cool undertone, warm ones one will drain you.
  • Neutral eyeshadow colours are the whites and greys on the palette.
  • For highlight and accent eyeshadow colours, opt for the purples, like Dusk, Heather or Lavender Bliss, or brighter Purple itself. Blues like Eau de nil or Midnight and greens like Peppermint or Blue Lagoon are clean, cool shades. Frosted finishes or cool metallics typically look best.
  • Avoid matt eyeshadows, which may look dull on your bright appearance. A dash of highlighter over the top or a cream shimmer is perfect.
  • A Marine, Teal, Granite or Amethyst eyeliner really brings out the colours in your eyes.
  • Black mascara is perfect for you, or a striking Navy.
  • Instead of golden bronzer (which will not enhance your colouring as you do not want its warm tones) opt for a lighter one with a pinkish undertone, and apply delicately. Alternatively swipe a little cool toned highlighter to your cheeks instead, it will add some wonderful shimmer.
  • Your blush will be a cool pinkish or purple based colour, try Shiraz or Candy.
  • Your best lipsticks are berry colours, red and purples. Even though these colours may at first glance seem bold, they will look very natural on you because they mimic the intensity of your appearance. Cerise, Soft Mauve, Purple Rain or Strawberry.
  • A cool pink or purple lip colour (depending on the depth of your skin tone) will look very natural on you. You can use lipstick or lipgloss.
  • Classic dramatic makeup is the pin-up look, with light eyeshadow, winged black liner and a red lip. Smoky eyes are also possible. You have all the right greys for it on your palette! Keep your lips similarly bright, nude lips are an absolute no-go.

What a wonderful experience! Nicki is so welcoming and soon puts you at ease. After talking through my new colour palette (it looks wonderful!), she also recommended which colour and shape of glasses would suit me, together with makeup, jewellery and scarves to finish off an outfit. I can't recommend her highly enough!

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!

I recently had a colour consultation session with Nicki. I really enjoyed the experience and Nicki was so welcoming and friendly. The session was so informative and I can't wait to start focussing on colours that I now know work for me. Would highly recommend!

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!
