A Step-by-Step Guide to Colour Analysis

Hi there,

Do you ever find yourself staring at your closet, feeling like nothing complements you quite right? The secret to dressing stylishly might lie in understanding your natural colouring and harnessing the magic of colour analysis.

What is Colour Analysis

Colour analysis is a system designed to help you understand the colours that best complement your skin tone, hair colour, and eye colour. By identifying your ideal colour palette, you'll be able to make choices that enhance your natural features and make you look radiant.

Why Colour Matters

The right colours can make your complexion glow, your eyes sparkle, and your overall appearance more polished. On the flip side, the wrong colours can leave you looking dull or washed out.

Step 1: Identify Your Undertone

The foundation of colour analysis lies in determining your undertone. Your undertone is the subtle hue beneath the surface of your skin and is classified as:

Cool

Pinkish or bluish undertones

Warm

Yellowish or peachy undertones

Neutral

A balanced mix of both cool and warm

Undertone Test 1

Jewellery Test

Consider which type of jewellery looks better on you: gold or silver.
If gold jewellery complements your skin better, you’re likely to have warm undertones.
If silver jewellery looks better on you, you’re likely to have cool undertones.

Undertone Test 2

Cream or White

Cream or white top flatter you more?
If your face appears more radiant when you wear bright white, you’re likely to have cool undertones.
If your skin looks more radiant against off-white or cream, you’re likely to have warm undertones.

Step 2: Find Your Season

Colour analysis often uses the "seasonal system" to help you identify your colour palette. Think of the colours that naturally occur during each season:

Spring

Bright, clear, and warm colours (coral, turquoise, soft yellow)

Summer

Cool, muted, and soft tones (lavender, baby blue, light green)

Autumn

Deep, rich, and warm colours (olive green, mustard yellow, burgundy)

Winter

Cool, clear, and bold colours (black, emerald green, true red)

Step 3: Build Your Wardrobe

Once you know your season and undertone, the fun begins!

Wear on Your Essence Colours

Invest in staples like shirts, dresses, and pants in your seasonal colours. These will form the foundation of your wardrobe.

Neutral Know-How

Neutral colours are your foundational colours that can be paired with your core colours.

Experiment with Pops of Colour

You can add accents or statement pieces from outside your season for variety and personality.

Accessorise

Scarves, jewellery, and belts are perfect ways to inject your seasonal colours and elevate your look

You're Ready to Shine!

Colour analysis is a fabulous tool, but fashion is ultimately about self-expression! The most important thing is to wear clothes that make you feel beautiful and confident.
