YOUR LOOK IS DEEP AND STRONG

Your colours are wonderfully deep, but lighter colours in the palette enable you to create high contrast combinations by pairing light with dark. By repeating this contrast naturally present in your appearance, you look radiant. 

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

Contrasting Accents

All Dark

Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • Depth contrast with colour contrast is especially flattering on you. A neutral with an accent colour.
  • Pair a light neutral in one colour with a different dark accent colour, such as Stone with Burgundy.
  • You can also combine a darker neutral with a brighter accent colour, such as Black-Brown and Emerald Green.
  • For depth or colour contrast combine just accent colours.
    • Royal Purple with Turquoise (depth contrast)
    • or Damson with Blush Pink (colour contrast)
  • An all-dark look works for you especially with striking accessories in an accent colour.
  • If you wear one colour, ensure its dark or vibrant.
  • For balance, wear the strong dark colours near your face.
  • If your lighter colours are near your face, balance the look with deeper/stronger coloured makeup and accessories.
  • Though your contrast is high, it’s not extreme, so take care pairing colours that are in stark contrast- opposites on the colour wheel can be overwhelming.
  • Paler shades can wash you out, they will look better worn with dark or bright colours.
  • Mid to later life you may change to a SOFT or COOL as your hair turns lighter.
  • Great patterns for you are bold, highly stylised forms of natural elements. Geometric shapes with round or rectangular shapes mixed together work well, and elements should be big and loosely arranged.

Don't do it ...
  • Two light colours together
  • Light and frosty colours
  • Muted colours
  • A monochromatic or neutrals-only look
  • Patterns | avoid stiff geometric, small and dense patterns. Natural floral patterns are not your best choice, if necessary, the flowers should be highly stylised, as in paisley and oriental patterns.

Jewellery

Jewellery can be matt or shiny, a great way of adding contrasting colour. Use gemstones in colours from your palette.

Hair

Your hair will always be a brown through to deep dark brown. Depending on your undertone you may want to add high or lowlights that are either warm or cool. As you age your hair may become lighter and this can change your palette to a Soft or Cool.

Glasses

Always choose a frame that is a colour, or metal from your palette. You can mix two or more deep shades or contrast light and dark tones. You can go quite dark with the tortoiseshell. (Avoid pastels)

Makeup

Your Deep look is naturally intense, and high in contrast; so to achieve a harmonious makeup look, you need to repeat these natural characteristics in your makeup. A typical ‘natural’ or nude makeup look won’t work on you. The look for you works when the focus is on just one area of your face. Balance your strong, rich colouring with both lighter and dark shades together.

  • Keep your makeup colours to a minimum of one or two colours per look. Since your makeup colours are also quite bright, too many different colours could leave you looking overdone.
  • For a daytime look, keep your lips in the background. Focus on highlighting the eyes with some mascara and perhaps an earthy eyeshadow instead. You can mix all dark shades successfully, but avoid the very light, delicate colours.
  • Neutral eyeshadows such as Beige, Browns Gold and Greys, with accent colours similar to those in your palette. When choosing eyeshadow, opt for a more matt or slight sheen in the finish. You can also wear metallic eyeshadows, particularly in the deeper colours. Avoid glitter finishes.
  • An eyeliner is a must – and will help define your eyes.
  • Black mascara works well, but try Black-Brown, which keeps a little warmth with the depth of Black. Navy looks striking too.
  • Your blush will need depth to it.
  • Highlighters do not enhance your look, you’re all about lowlights.
  • To frame your face, use a little bronzer.
  • Lipstick wise opt for matt finishes or ones with some shimmer like our Sheer lipsticks. Avoid lip gloss and too much shine.
  • For more dramatic looks, you have can either intensify the smokey eye look with deep, metallic eye shadows and keep your lips nude, or put your lips centre stage keeping your eye makeup clean and simple with neutral eyeshadow and some mascara.
  • Your lips can be dipped into one of your dark lipstick options to make them the focus of your look.

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!

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!

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.
