A Book About Getting Your Colors Done

Fab Read: Color Me Confident

Have you ever had your colors done? I haven't but I'm totally intrigued by the '80s phenomenon. I did some research and found this book, Color Me Confident: Change Your Look — Change Your Life! ($13) by Veronique Henderson and Pat Henshaw. It helps you discover what shades work best with your skin, hair color, and eye tones, by asking questions and showing photos. It also reveals tricks to help you adapt your wardrobe according to your lifestyle and features a confidence-building plan so you can pick outfits according to your shape. Are you into this?

Oh and because ethnic women have less variation in hair and eye color, the Carole Jackson-system often leaves out Latinas, Asians, Africans and Mediterraneans. That's the downside of it. Just because we all have dark hair and eyes does not mean we all are winters, getting your "colors done" needs to be redesigned for modern times!

Yeah but i found that it really was not accurate. When taking the test, my hair being black and having dark eyes pretty much automatically made me cool and a winter which is so not right. Even olive skin they put in winter, now i'm sorry but since when is yellowish olive skin considered a cool color lol. Cool colors usually wash me out, and make me look yellow or green, warm bright colors however don't. And not all of the sites agree on the color palette anyway. I say you know what you like, and if you're really wondering, ask a TRUE friend, they'll tell you if you don't look good.
