YOUR LOOK IS LIGHT, BRIGHT AND DELICATE

A beautiful, very delicate and colourful palette. Use colour combinations that repeat the low to medium contrast level naturally present in your appearance. You need vibrancy, a bit of contrast, and playful colour combinations to come alive!  

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 ...
  • A great way to achieve a little contrast is by pairing a neutral with a brighter accent.
  • Try combining neutrals with brighter accent colours; a darker neutral
    • Light Navy with Violet, or a lighter neutral – Cream with Blush Pink.
  • Pair neighbouring colours on a colour wheel
    • Primrose Yellow and Apple Green.
  • In general, always aim for at least one bright colour in your outfit.
  • The brighter and lighter shades are best near your face.
  • If you wear just one colour, ensure its light to medium in depth.
  • Black is not in your palette, if essential, wear sparingly, preferably below the waist in a sheer, light fabric.
  • Your black alternative is Light Navy | Rose Brown | Pewter | Medium Grey.
  • Accessories and shoes can help lighten your look.
  • Great patterns for you include small and dense, gentle and delicate prints.  Rounded shaped geometric patterns with natural elements such as flowers, butterflies and birds, will also work well.

Don't do it ...
  • Two dark colours are overpowering.
  • Avoid darker colours head to toe, or near your face as they drain you.
  • Avoid neutrals-only combinations as these will look dull on you.
  • Overly bright colours.
  • Patterns | avoid stiff, and square geometric arrangements or big elements.

Jewellery

Jewellery is best kept light to match your delicate colouring rather than deep and rich. Metals can be shiny, brushed, or matt, but avoid antiqued or oxidised finishes that will darken the metals too much.    

  • Light Gold (9kt or 14kt | White Gold | Silver | Platinum | Pearls | Mother of Pearl 
  • Diamonds (smaller, inset) 
  • Gemstones in colours from your palette 
Hair

Your hair will always be a natural blonde and as you get older always go lighter rather than darker with highlights. Depending on your undertone you may want to add highlights that are either warm or cool.

Glasses

Always choose a frame that is in a colour or metal from your palette. A mix of light shades, pastels or clear work especially well for you, but avoid darker shades.

Makeup

Your makeup is with light and fresh colours, delicate with little contrast. The best makeup looks are those that repeat your natural characteristics. Avoid strong or deep colours as they will make you look overly made up. You can be colourful though. Your palette is gentle but colourful; which means your makeup looks can get quite colourful too.

What is required is minimal eye makeup and a light, nude lip. Use similar tones to those in your palette.

  • Neutral eyeshadows such as cream, gold, browns and grey with accent colours similar to those in your palette. When choosing eyeshadows, opt for creamy, sheer colours. Just don’t let the colours get too bright or too dark or they will overwhelm you.
  • A Marine Blue, Teal or Moss eyeliner will really bring out the colours in your eyes.
  • A Black-Brown mascara keeps your look light, or a striking soft Navy. Pure Black can be too heavy for your colouring.
    If you like a bronzer, opt for a lighter one and do not over-apply, keep it delicate.
  • A light blush, just a little and lovely with a shimmer.
  • Lipsticks that are creamy or sheer achieve a natural and delicate result. A gentle, but colourful sheen.
  • To dramatise your look you don’t need bright or dark lipstick. Aim for a gentle but colourful lip and slightly more eye makeup. A dark lip combined with heavy eye makeup is too heavy for you.

To give you specific advice on colours best for you with regards to hair, makeup or accessories like jewellery or glasses, I would need to determine whether your undertone is Warm or Cool. Please do ask me if you are interested to know more!

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!
