How to change your life with colour
- Published:10th May 2017
As a young teenager my mum showed me a book she swears by, something that would transform my mood, how people see me and my general ‘beauty’ in other words LIFE CHANGING. The book- Colour me beautiful (I bet your mum had a copy too) Now maybe I am being a bit over dramatic…. But there is some science-y stuff behind this.
Now for me whether good or bad I wear whatever colour I plucked out of my wardrobe that day. I don’t really follow any style rules, and often wear 3 different prints in one outfit not being too bothered about the consequences.
So I have had a little research online and I am apparently a ‘Soft summer’. This means I am in between a Summer and Autumn colouring… which means?!? Well it means if I want to look my very best I should be opting for soft muted colours nothing too bright and electric or clear…
There are now 12 different seasons you can be supposedly and they stem from the seasonal colour theory which was popular in the 1980’s. This is all calculated from your hair colour, skin tone and eye colour.
So… look below for your colour season, you might find out why you look particularly hungover in that lime green jumper or maybe you just have yourself to blame.
