BEHIND THE SCENES - WHAT HAPPENS DURING A COLOUR CONSULTATION?
If you’re thinking about taking the plunge and booking a colour consultation then this blog post is for you.
It’s all very well for me to talk about ‘getting your colours done’ - but what do I actually mean by this and what happens during your colour me beautiful session?
Read on to find out…
Where will my consultation take place?
This usually takes place at my studio in my home in Chiswick.
So what actually happens during my 90-minute consultation?
Your session will start with a chat a coffee/tea. I will take you through what colour analysis is, how it works and describe our six dominant colour categories to you before explaining which category you fall into and therefore which colours will suit you best. After this I will use gorgeous fabric panels to determine what your sub categories are before presenting you with your palette of 42 gorgeous colours. During the session, you will be shown how to wear colour (we never 'tell' you what you have to wear!
Do I need to arrive make-up free?
Colour analysis is most accurate when I can see your natural skin tone, without make-up. If you don’t wish to arrive make-up free, it is absolutely fine, and you will be able to remove your make-up when you arrive. Most consultations include the application of a natural, daytime make-up in your best colours so you’ll leave looking fabulous too.
How will I remember which colours suit me?
As part of your consultation you will be shown all of your colours and different combinations using drapes to demonstrate the impact they have on your overall look. To help you remember everything you will receive a swatch wallet containing all of your colours and your consultant will make some notes to pop in the front of your wallet which will detail key things to remember as well as your favourite shades and colour combinations.
Can I come with a friend?
Absolutely! I am very happy for you to bring along a friend - you could even book in for a joint consultation and make it a fun day of colour, make-up and chat!
