Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • Your overall look needs to be medium in depth and contrast.
  • Monochromatic combinations, which combine different shades of one colour.
    • Greens for example – Sage with Evergreen, is flattering.
  • You can take on the contrast however of pairing neighbouring colours with similar depth.
    • A medium orange like Amber with a medium pink like Coral.
  • Another option is to pair a neutral with a similar depth accent colour.
  • One bright colour in your outfit lifts it, keep the brighter tones nearer your face.
  • Black is not in your palette, if essential, wear sparingly in a sheer, light fabric.
  • Your black alternative is Charcoal | Pewter | Chocolate | Bronze | Light Navy.
  • Cream is a great version of white for you.
  • Since your natural colouring has low to medium contrast, opt for patterns that reflect this natural contrast level rather than ones which are too bold.
  • Great patterns include:
    • Small and loosely arranged elements that are natural and gentle; oval shapes, leaves, wood structures, flowers, birds and butterflies; anything hand-drawn.
    • Floral patterns work well, especially small flowers.

Jewellery

Jewellery is best if it is matt or hammered, brushed or satin. Not shiny, avoid bling! Wood and other natural materials are perfect.

  • Gold – light in depth | Rose Gold – peachy | Copper | Brass | Bronze | Brown Pearls
  • Warm hued gemstones in colours from your palette | Jasper | Topaz | Amber | Coral | Turquoise
Hair

Golden tones reign with strawberry blonde to caramel, auburn, warm brown to deep copper. Always keep warm tones of gold and copper if you highlight, don’t be tempted to go darker. 

Glasses

Always choose a frame that is a colour, (especially a mid-depth colour) or a metal from your palette. A soft tortoiseshell is a classic for both eye and sunglasses.

Makeup

Your colouring as a Warm & Soft means a natural look on you is a rich, glowing look. It radiates from you. It is a glow, not a brightness, and is distinctly autumnal. Your colouring contrast is medium, the softness requires muted colours. To achieve a harmonious makeup look, you need to repeat these natural characteristics in your makeup. If your makeup is matt and understated with a natural lip colour and minimum eye makeup, your face will be framed beautifully.

  • Use similar tones to those in your palette with a warm undertone, cool ones one will drain you.
  • Neutral eyeshadow colours are Gold Whisper, Melon or Peach, and the browns like Cocoa.
  • For highlight and accent eyeshadow colours, opt for Purple and greens like Bayleaf or Olive in your palette.
  • When choosing eyeshadow, opt for an overall matt or shimmery finish. Metallic can look lovely but avoid glitter finishes.
  • A Teal, Moss, Coffee or Aubergine eyeliner can really bring out the colours in your eyes.
  • Warm-Brown mascara is kinder to you than a Black. A Black-Brown is also lovely, or a striking Navy.
  • Bronzer was made for you! It brings out a healthy, golden glow in your appearance. Avoid an overly shimmery bronzer.
  • Your blush can be a coral-pink, to orange or brown. Try Almond or Muscat.
  • Lipsticks are best when they are either matt; Chiffon, or have a slight golden shimmer; Sheer Copper or Sheer Rum.
  • For a dramatic look there is plenty of depth in the colour palette to create warm smoky eyes. Deep reds such as Red Velvet or Tomato are perfect for a dramatic lip.

I had the most fabulous, fun and inspiring experience with Nicki for the full colour works analysis.Being in my mid sixties I was a little apprehensive of what to expect, but from entering the beautiful consultation room, Nicki made me feel so relaxed.Nicki has such a great understanding of all aspects of colour and styling and was so professional, passionate and clear in her approach when choosing the best colour palette for me, which I found so helpful.I came away feeling so special about myself and both inspired and excited to start using my personal colour swatch wallet which has given me so much confidence and understanding in choosing my new wardrobe combinations. (So looking forward to my next shopping trip!!).I can’t thank Nicki enough for such a wonderful time and would highly recommend her services.
I had the most amazing experience with Nicki during her full works consultation. I genuinely can’t recommend her services enough. You can feel Nicki’s passion for colour instantly and she made me very comfortable and at ease during the appointment. Nicki really cares and it’s evident she wants to help women feel their best versions of themselves - which alone is just a beautiful thing! As someone who’s always been shy to experiment with colour personally (even though I work in fashion(!)), I came away with a new found confidence to explore colour and I honestly can say that I think about Nicki’s advice now whenever I’m shopping. The little swatch book I bought serves as a bit of a bible for me now and I’m so grateful to her for the experience!

This was my first experience of colour analysis. Nicki is a lovely friendly consultant who shares her expertise in clothes colour and make-up. I rarely wear make-up but absolutely loved the look Nicki created for me. I feel inspired and uplifted by the whole experience and cannot wait to colourfully recreate my wardrobe and my image. I highly recommend Nicki's service and advice to anyone who feels in need of a makeover and confidence boost.

The full works package with Nicki was such a fun and engaging experience! Nicki was great at showing me which colours look best on me and how to layer colours and wear them together. I liked that she not only showed me, but also explained her reasoning behind everything. I loved that she also gave advice on other things such as glasses, jewellery, make-up and hair. I came away from the session with a colour swatch booklet and new knowledge on how to dress and accessorize to suit my palette. Nicki was very professional and went out of her way to select colours and shades of make-up especially for me. I would highly recommend the experience.

The Full Works package with Nicki at Colour Fabulous was such a fun and inspiring couple of hours. At her beautiful house, Nicki skillfully found a range of colours, tones and hues that have transformed how I chose and wear clothes. Even more impressively Nicki found a range of new colours that not only really suit my husband but he's happy to wear them too! After years of wearing the same make-up shades, I was really delighted that Nicki was able to give me helpful and bespoke advice on how to change things up and use different make up tones for different effects. It was great that I could try so many shades and Nicki was so generous with her time and advice. We came away with a range of colour swatches and lots of ideas and a new confidence in how to chose and wear clothes. I would definately recommend the experience.
