Assessment: Have a style consultant carry out a color analysis


Color analysis is a process in which a trained color consultant examines the natural tones of your skin, hair and eyes and shows you which colors work best for you.

After previously interviewing Kate, I was intrigued when she told me that the TikTok trend had caused her business to go “absolutely crazy” and I decided it was time to find out why.

Basingstoke Gazette: I'm finishing my color analysis

The beautiful studio is close to Whitchurch and immediately made me feel at home.

As someone who always goes for darker shades, I was excited to see how I could add some color to my wardrobe.

I quickly learned that like the seasons, there are four categories that people fall into – either fall, spring, winter or summer.

I wasn't too shocked to learn that I fell into the “winter” category, but I was amazed to learn that almost any color can still be part of your wardrobe, as long as it's the right shade of course. Even a shade of yellow, which is usually my worst nightmare.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was amazed that each color really changes your entire appearance, brightens your complexion and makes you feel super confident.

Kate was like a color wizard and was really great at explaining the fascinating story behind the wonderful world of color analysis, and the whole experience was really fun too.

In addition, I was also shown what makeup works well and was surprised that a lighter lip color can be added.

Another element of the whole experience was figuring out what hair color suits you best using the same techniques.

Afterwards I was able to take home a booklet with all of my best colors marked.

The experience really opened my eyes to perhaps confidently adding a little more color to my wardrobe.
