Soft & Light

YOUR LOOK IS COOL AND SUBTLE

Your palette has a gentleness and delicacy, and like your natural appearance blends rather than contrasts. Your colouring combines coolness with a softness and your stunning colours are cool with a blue undertone. From softer pastels to the brighter colours, your best colour combinations for outfits are those that complement each other or that have medium contrast.  

Adding your tertiary palette of Light, means your overall look is elevated with colours towards the lighter end of the scale. These make wonderful additions to your wardrobe.

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 ...
  • You look best in medium to deep colours.
  • Combine Accent colours in similar depths.
    • Sky blue with Soft Violet.
  • If you want to incorporate neutrals into your outfits, choose a neutral and accent colour with similar or slightly different depths.
    • Combine a lighter neutral like Rose Beige with a brighter, similar depth accent such as Rose Pink.
  • Or pair a darker neutral with a brighter, similar depth accent.
    • Charcoal with Cassis.
  • You can achieve more contrast through combining neighbouring colours, as long as they have the same depth.
    • Blue-Green and Amethyst.
  • One way to achieve a gentle contrast is through similar depth monochromatic colour combinations.
    • Pair a slightly lighter and darker shade of the same colour, such as a light Sky Blue and a slightly darker Cornflower Blue.
  • Due to the natural gentleness of your appearance, neutrals will never make you look washed out or boring, but be sure to combine them with a brighter, similar depth accent colour.
  • Great patterns for Cool & Soft are gentle but not too delicate – such as watercolour and floral textures, floral drawings, and brush strokes. Since your natural colouring has medium contrast, opt for patterns that reflect this contrast level rather than ones which are too bold. The elements of the pattern should not be too small and should be loosely arranged.

Don't do it ...
  • Colours with a warm undertone
  • Neon colours
  • A neutrals-only look
  • Extreme contrast – pairing colours that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel.
  • Patterns | avoid ordered arrangements, small and dense elements, and stiff geometric patterns.

Jewellery

Metals that are brushed, hammered or satin are especially flattering.

  • Silver | Platinum | White Gold | Diamonds | White, Pink & Grey Pearls | Mother of Pearl
  • 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 (brushed, hammered or satin) from your palette. Contrasting colours will work well.

Makeup

As a Cool & Soft your colours are not only cool, but quite muted and medium depth. Cool and understated, but always with a pop of colour! A natural look on you is a gentle, dewy look. A pink or nude lip, delicate skin with a fresh blush and subtle, light eyeshadow is perfect.

  • Your neutral eyeshadows are the whites, greys and taupes on the colour palette. For highlight eyeshadow colours, opt for the pinks, plums, blues and greens on your palette like Opal, Damson, Midnight and Peppermint.
  • When selecting eyeshadows, opt for a matt finish or a slight shimmer, avoid glitter and sparkly eyeshadows.
  • Make sure to blend your eyeshadows in really well. Harsh lines are not best for your blended look.
  • Marine, Teal, Granite, Aubergine or Amethyst eyeliner really bring out the colours in your eyes.
  • A striking soft Navy would look lovely, or a Black-Brown mascara.
  • 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. Sparkle or gloss can easily be too much on you.
  • 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.
