It has been such a long time since I blogged – I have been really, really busy – have you missed me? I hope everyone is having a great Summer and looking forward to the exciting new fashions that are starting to appear in the shops right now.
Autumn is my favourite time of year and I can’t contain my giddiness that THE hot colour for Autumn/Winter 2014 is RED!!!
The catwalks were awash with healthy, warm and vibrant head to toe scarlets in all hues this season. Red is the ultimate power colour that screams “LOOK AT ME!”. If you want to be noticed and remembered – wear red, but not just any red – your red!
Red is a difficult colour to get right as there are so many different shades of it. I know from personal experience. You see, I never wore red until I disovered Colour Analysis and found MY red. My mother never dressed me in red as a child, I never chose red when I was old enough to shop for myself. I simply believed that wearing red would clash with my hair. But now I have discovered the right reds for my individual colouring, I love to wear it and I am always complimented when I wear it. The red family has so many variations, from raspberry to tomato so getting the undertone right is crucial.
Red is the colour of energy, wear red and you will feel confident and in control. It will bring excitement to your day. It is a great colour to wear at the end of the week when your energy levels may be flagging. So, probably not a great colour to wear if you are trying to get the kids off to sleep 🙂
There are two reds in Pantone’s Fall 2014 collection. Firstly, Sangria, “an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures and faraway destinations”.
Secondly, there is Aurora Red “a more sophisticated shade that adds verve and spark”. Nice of them to give us a choice 🙂
When wearing red, take care with your lipstick and make sure it is in the same tone. Colour Me Beautiful cosmetics are specifically designed to suit individual colouring, so it makes your choice easy peasy! You can purchase Colour Me Beautiful cosmetics from my online shop Susan Styles You. If you are not sure what suits you, just give me a call and I can help you choose!
For those with warm undertones, choose an earthy red like Tomato.
For those with a cool undertone, Ruby is lovely.
