Who would have ever thought colors could be so life changing?! If you would have told me a color consult would have been a game changer in my life, I probably would have laughed at you. Colors seem so....elementary right? And as far as clothes go, we wear what we like right?
I have to share this with you! My color consult with Lindsey of Created Colorful was such a fascinating experience and I am SO glad I did it! I'm sharing the deets on what the process was like, and why I'm kinda a new woman now!
I found Lindsey on Instagram through my friend Rita. When she told me Lindsey did color consultation, I assumed it meant makeup consult and since I feel pretty good about my makeup game, I wasn't really interested.
Not until I looked more into what Lindsey was doing through her Instagram page, did I realize that what she does is find your best color shades and tones through kind of a science to show you which of them look the absolute BEST on you.
Now you might think a lot of colors look great on you, and you might be right. But you know sometimes you put something on - and you just SHINE! Your best features pop, you get loads of compliments, and it just seems like your outfit was made for you. THIS is kinda what we mean with your best colors.
To begin, I went to Lindsey's website through her Instagram and filled out a color consult form. I paid the fee and sent Lindsey about 10 photos of myself with different shades of clothes held up to my skin.
After a week or two, Lindsey wrote back asking to see me in a few more colors. And after some time, I got a thorough detailed email which told me what my color "season" is and which shades look best on me.
Lindsey takes into account your skin tone, hair color, eye color, and all the color science info I simply don't know all about, and finds colors that compliment you in the best way!
I learned that I am a COOL SUMMER!
This was so intriguing to me because I always thought I had a warm skin tone. I never really shopped for clothes in a particular color because I thought it complimented me, I mostly just chose colors that I like. Pinks, Blacks, Whites, and Greys.
With my consult, I learned that these Cool Summer Colors compliment my skin, hair, and eyes the best. So I've now been able to shop within this color range for clothes I know will make me shine!
Lindsey even takes the time to explain which color families to avoid and why. For example, warm earthy tones would tend to make me look tired or sick. I really appreciated the thought and time put into the color consult results. I learned so much.
SO MUCH MORE THAN CLOTHES
As an online entrepreneur, I got inspiration though my color consult to help me find my new branding colors. You can see the shades of pink from Cool Summer reflected in my branding. And what's best - these are colors I already love and feel represent ME so well.
I feel confident wearing colors I know look great on me, and I have somewhat of a guide for when I go shopping these days. I know what do avoid, and which colors to grab. I still may reach for black now and then, but I can even wear makeup colors, such as blush and lipstick shades in my best tones to be in my cool summer season.
Lindsey is definitely changing lives through brining confidence to women through this service and I just think it's so fun!
Please give her a follow and consider a consult with you. You just might be amazed too!
