Have you ever noticed how wearing some colours bring you alive, make you look more energised, younger, even? Yet other colours seem just not to work at all, wearing them makes you look older, sallow or drained? Here at Signature Image, my colour analysis consultation will allow you to understand why. As a colour consultant, I am here to give you an insight into the science behind choosing the right colours. I am here to provide the answers that will allow you to look your very best every day.
Signature Image: Colour Consultations with a Difference
There is a science behind why some colours look good on you and others simply don’t. When you wear colour, especially in the crucial area under your face, the light reflects the colour upwards. Depending on the depth, clarity and undertone of the colour and your own colouring, the effect can be flattering. It can create balance and harmony. Other colours, however, can cast dark shadows, making you look paler, tired and older. This is why professional advice from a colour and style consultant is vital.
Colour also has a psychological impact on the way people see you. Research shows that when we wear lighter or softer colours, we can appear more approachable and friendly. Bright colours, such as reds, can give the impression of more confidence. Darker colours, such as black, navy or charcoal, can convey authority. It’s no coincidence that these colours are frequently used for uniforms.
That’s why it’s so helpful to know what colours suit you best. It is equally importantly to know how to wear these colours according to the impression you want to make. All this can be achieved when you choose my colour consultation services.
You might have already come across colour analysis that works by ‘seasons’ – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This approach has been updated by Colour Me Beautiful in recent times. I pride myself on keeping up to date with the very latest in colour consultant training, using the most up-to-date methods for my colour research. The latest methods are no longer confined to the four main seasonal palettes; the process has now been refined to create six dominant palettes. Each palette includes four versions, giving 24 different palettes in total. This approach better reflects the many combinations of hair and skin tones we encounter today. It makes colour consultations and analysis far more personalised than ever before.
As a leading colour image consultant, your 1:1 colour consultation will be in-depth and will last between 1.5 and 2 hours in my home studio. I will look at the colour and tones of your hair . I will then look at your eyes and skin without makeup and in natural daylight. I will test for your colours by looking at the impact on you of similar colours but in different degrees of depth, clarity or undertone.
By the end of the colour consultation, you’ll have a personalised wallet containing 42 colours, highlighting the ‘wow’ ones that make you look fabulous when you wear them. I’ll also explain how to wear your colours in combination. I’ll offer a complimentary makeup application that makes the most of your natural colouring. You’ll go away looking and feeling great !
It’s great fun to do a consultation with a friend or relative. I also offer colour workshops for small groups. Both these options increase cost effectiveness.
- You gain confidence from knowing the colours that work for you and how to wear them to best effect
- You’ll have colours in your wardrobe that work together, thus avoiding that ‘I haven’t got anything that goes with this’ feeling
- Shopping actually becomes easier – you just ignore all the colours that you know don’t work for you and focus on those that do.
Discovering your colours can be magical and a revelation – it’s certainly fun and well worth the investment. You’ll find you waste less money on those purchases which end up unworn in the back of the wardrobe.

“My colour consultation with Jane was a really interesting, fun and totally helpful experience. Jane’s studio is relaxed and Jane is very easy to work with. I’m so glad I treated myself to this – after only a couple days and changing just a few things off the back of Jane’s advice, I’m feeling so much better and confident with my personal brand. Would highly recommend both the experience and working with Jane.” – Amy
“I purchased a Colour Me Beautiful session with Jane as a present for my Mum for Mother’s Day. I chose Jane as I was really impressed with her website, her Facebook page and her communication from my initial point of contact. Jane immediately puts you at ease and explains in detail what the session will entail. Jane was a fantastic host, we had a thoroughly enjoyable session with her and were delighted with the amount of detail she went in to. We were especially delighted to receive our own personalised book of colours which we have used during every shopping trip we have been on since. We would recommend Jane in a heartbeat.” – Lily and Elaine
“A friend very kindly bought me a consultation with Jane at Signature Image for my 50th Birthday. The two of us went to Jane’s Studio in Fleet and had a wonderful afternoon with her. She took us through the fascinating process of a colour analysis, which taught me a great deal about colour, how it works for or against us and how to wear it. I loved going through all the colour panels and discovering my best shades. At the end of the consultation, I chose a gorgeous lime green pouch for my colour chart to go in and, to this day, I don’t go shopping without it! Jane was welcoming, warm, wonderfully informative and helpful. I felt she was totally on side, expertly steered me in the right direction towards the best colour and style for me and the whole day was infused with sense of fun.” – Melissa
“I was fascinated by the overall experience. Learning how a colour can make or break the energy that is displayed from your face is incredible. I now feel more confident knowing what colours bring out the best in me and doing this has really cut my time in half in terms of figuring out what to wear. I have a clear focus and feel empowered by the whole process. Jane did an excellent job of making me feel supported, is very knowledgeable and, throughout, made the whole process really fun and engaging! I have already recommended this experience for others to do. I think it’s a must do for everyone!” – Stephanie
“I recently had the pleasure of a colour and style consultation with Jane. It was a really great experience. Jane’s professionalism, expertise and love of her subject made it relaxing, fun and incredibly helpful. I now have a much clearer idea of the the styles and fabrics to choose to suit me and my lifestyle and a lovely palette of colours to work with. I would highly recommend her.” – Katie
