YOUR LOOK IS DEEP AND STRONG

Your colours are rich and deep, but lighter colours in the palette help create the high contrast naturally present in your appearance. Use colour combinations that pair light with dark to repeat this contrast.  

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

Helpful Hints

Neutral with Contrasting Accent

Contrasting Accents

All Dark

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 jumper or jacket.
  • 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.

Accessories

Jewellery can be matt or shiny, a great way of adding contrasting colour. 

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)

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.
