Warm & Soft

YOUR LOOK IS WARM AND GOLDEN

Your palette overall is rich and vibrant, the colouring combines warmth with softness to take the edge off the vibrancy. A Warm & Soft’s natural appearance blends, with medium contrast between your features. Your best combinations are similarly contrasting.

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 ...
  • Your overall look needs to be medium in depth and contrast.
  • Monochromatic combinations, which combine different shades of one colour.
    • Greens for example – Sage with Evergreen, is flattering.
  • You can take on the contrast however of pairing neighbouring colours with similar depth.
    • A medium orange like Amber with a medium pink like Coral.
  • Another option is to pair a neutral with a similar depth accent colour.
  • One bright colour in your outfit lifts it, keep the brighter tones nearer your face.
  • Black is not in your palette, if essential, wear sparingly in a sheer, light fabric.
  • Your black alternative is Chocolate | Bronze | Light Navy.
  • Cream is a great version of white for you.
  • Since your natural colouring has medium contrast, opt for patterns that reflect this natural contrast level rather than ones which are too bold.
  • Great patterns include:
    • Small and loosely arranged elements that are natural and gentle; oval shapes, leaves, wood structures, flowers, birds and butterflies; anything hand-drawn.
    • Floral patterns work well, especially small flowers.

Don't do it ...

  • Bright, pastel or icy colours
  • Pure White, Black, Wine and Burgundy
  • Patterns | avoid elements in dense arrangements and stiff, ordered, square geometric patterns

Jewellery

Jewellery is best if it is matt or hammered, brushed or satin. Not shiny, avoid bling! Wood and other natural materials are perfect.

  • Gold – light in depth | Rose Gold – peachy | Copper | Brass | Bronze | Brown Pearls
  • Warm hued gemstones in colours from your palette | Jasper | Topaz | Amber | Coral | Turquoise
Hair

Golden tones reign with strawberry blonde to caramel, auburn, warm brown to deep copper. Always keep warm tones of gold and copper if you highlight, don’t be tempted to go darker. 

Glasses

Always choose a frame that is a colour, (especially a mid-depth colour) or a metal from your palette. A soft tortoiseshell is a classic for both eye and sunglasses.

Makeup

Your colouring as a Warm & Soft means a natural look on you is a rich, glowing look. It radiates from you. It is a glow, not a brightness, and is distinctly autumnal. Your colouring contrast is medium, the softness requires muted colours. To achieve a harmonious makeup look, you need to repeat these natural characteristics in your makeup. If your makeup is matt and understated with a natural lip colour and minimum eye makeup, your face will be framed beautifully.

  • Use similar tones to those in your palette with a warm undertone, cool ones one will drain you.
  • Neutral eyeshadow colours are Gold Whisper, Melon or Peach, and the browns like Cocoa.
  • For highlight and accent eyeshadow colours, opt for Purple and greens like Bayleaf or Olive in your palette.
  • When choosing eyeshadow, opt for an overall matt or shimmery finish. Metallic can look lovely but avoid glitter finishes.
  • A Teal, Moss, Coffee or Aubergine eyeliner can really bring out the colours in your eyes.
  • Warm-Brown mascara is kinder to you than a Black. A Black-Brown is also lovely, or a striking Navy.
  • Bronzer was made for you! It brings out a healthy, golden glow in your appearance. Avoid an overly shimmery bronzer.
  • Your blush can be a coral-pink, to orange or brown. Try Almond or Muscat.
  • Lipsticks are best when they are either matt; Chiffon, or have a slight golden shimmer; Sheer Copper or Sheer Rum.
  • For a dramatic look there is plenty of depth in the colour palette to create warm smoky eyes. Deep reds such as Red Velvet or Tomato are perfect for a dramatic lip.

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!

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.
