Cool & Clear

YOUR LOOK IS LIGHT, BRIGHT, DELICATE AND COOL

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

With your secondary palette as Cool, clothes and makeup that have a cool undertone will enhance your colouring.

Adding a tertiary palette of Clear, means your overall look is elevated with colours that have a brightness to them, and in combinations that are more contrasting. These make wonderful additions to your wardrobe.

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

Helpful Hints

Contrasting Accents

Neutral & Accent

Lightest & Darkest of a Single Hue

All Light

Colour Guidelines | Click on image/title for more info

Work it ...
  • One way to achieve a delicate, yet brighter look is through contrasting accents:
    • Primrose with Light Periwinkle
  • Pair a neutral with a brighter accent for contrast:
    • A darker neutral – Light Navy with Violet
    • A lighter neutral – Cream with Blush Pink
  • Lightest and darkest of a hue for depth contrast is striking:
    • Light Aqua with Peacock
  • The brighter and lighter shades are best near your face
  • You can wear two light colours together, but in general, aim to incorporate at least one brighter colour into your outfit.
  • If you wear a medium to darker shade, contrast it with a lighter shade rather than a deep one.
  • 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 medium sized elements, not too dense and not too blended.  If you want to wear floral or geometric patterns, opt for small stylised flowers or patterns.

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
  • Colours with a warm undertone
  • Overly bright, neon colours
  • Black and Dark Navy
  • Patterns | avoid very loose and very dense arrangements, and large geometric prints

Jewellery

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

  • Diamonds | 9kt or 14kt Light Gold | White Gold | Silver | Platinum | Shiny Pearls
  • Cool hued gemstones in colours similar to your palette | Pale Rose Quartz | Tourmaline | Topaz | Turquoise | Opal | Aquamarine | Amazonite | Emerald | Jade
Hair

Your hair will always be a natural ash or platinum blonde, and as you get older always go lighter with your highlights rather than darker. Ensure you a keep cool undertone to them.

Glasses

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

Makeup

Light & Cool makeup is fresh and 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.

What is required is minimal eye makeup and a gently coloured lip. Your palette is gentle but colourful; which means your makeup looks can get quite colourful too. Use similar tones to those in your palette with a cool undertone, warm ones one will drain you.

  • Neutral eyeshadows such as cream, browns and greys. When choosing eyeshadows, opt for sheer finishes. Accent colours in pastels such as Lavender Bliss, Opal, Eau de Nil or a lilac tinged Dusk look delicate. Alternatively try the more colourful purple, blues and turquoises, just don’t let them get too bright or dark.
  • A Marine Blue, Teal, Amethyst or Granite eyeliner really bring out the colours in your eyes
  • A soft Navy mascara keeps your look light, pure Black can be too heavy for your colouring.
    If you like a bronzer, opt for a lighter one with a pinkish undertone, do not over-apply, keep it delicate.
  • Keep your blush light, a gentle Candy or Marsala.
  • For lipsticks you only need a little brightness, opt for a matt finish, nothing too glossy or too shiny. A light pink lip in Soft Mauve or Sheer Silk looks elegant.
  • For a more dramatic look choose from the deeper berry and pink colours to liven up your lips like Cerise or Strawberry.

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!
