We each have a map, an inborn GPS that aligns us with our best makeup.
The makeup that looks most believable, youngest, the least severe (synonymous with aging), and the least fake, is found in our natural colouring.
Anything else can look as off as a herd of grazing cats. It just feels wrong, you know? Not impossible, just crooked.
Choreograph your appearance to keep repeating.
You begin with a natural colour palette that is specific, not random.
Repeat it with your clothes.
And again in your hair colour.
Again in your makeup.
Once more in accessories.
Level after level after level of building blocks that stack up precisely. Every element is aligned. That looks like strength.
Learn which of the 12 palettes is yours with Seasonal Colour Analysis. The cosmetic colour palette below will be in your personal colour palette swatch book.
We will go through the True Seasons first. They do not have a cooler and warmer alternative. The True Spring is purely warm, the most important thing about its colors.
This palette is a little different from True Summer. Even purely warm Seasons have greys, they’re just warm.
The best lip and blush fuse with the basic undertone of your skin. Lip and blush colour look great when they’re quite similar. On real faces, when these colours come from the palette itself, they seem to accord on their own. There’s no need to own more than two or three of each, mostly for variety. They work with one another quite interchangeably, and also with the wardrobe.
You adjust the depth of your makeup colors to the darkness of your colouring or complexion. The lip colours should be about the same intensity as the eyes and hair colour.
An unexpected paradox happens in that by learning who we are not, we experience greater freedom.
In understanding who we are, we feel renewed. By wearing our own colouring as cosmetics, we also look rejuvenated, by 10 years at least.
