Cool

YOUR LOOK IS COOL AND REFRESHING

Your colouring of coolness means your stunning colours are cool with a clear blue undertone. From soft pastels to icy bright colours, the contrast between the colours is high, helping to create the medium to high contrast naturally present in your appearance.  

Personal style will also always influence how you wear your clothes and the colour combinations you prefer.

Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • As your natural colour contrast is medium to high, it is not extreme. A neutral and an accent colour always make a good pairing.
    • Lighter neutrals combined with darker, brighter accents, such as Light Grey with Bright Periwinkle looks striking.
    • You can 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)
    • or Light Aqua with Hot Pink (colour contrast)
  • A monochromatic look can be achieved in two ways:
    • Tonally if you have a softer look, eg. Sapphire with Cornflower
    • Or with depth contrast if you have a more contrasting look, eg. Icy Blue with Cornflower
Don't do it ...
  • Colours with a warm undertone
  • Avoid neutrals-only combinations
  • Extreme contrast – pairing colours that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, such as yellow and purple, can be overpowering.

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

With cool refreshing and bright colours, that range from very light to very dark, achieving a harmonious makeup look means you need to repeat these natural characteristics of medium to high contrast.

  • 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 bring 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 pink or plum coloured with matt or shiny finish, Soft Mauve, Dusty Rose or Sheer Silk.
  • For a more dramatic look you can choose a slightly deeper pink or berry shade like Sheer Fuchsia to liven up your lips. Add a smoky eye in a grey Steel or Storm.

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.
