It was predicted that red would be the colour of the Autumn/winter season and with the festive season fast approaching; it’s no surprise.
A quick wander round the shops confirms this and I’m sure the emails in your inbox do too!
Colour has been found to affect people’s mood and energy levels – how do you feel when you wear colour?
Red is the colour of energy making many people feel confident and in control and there’s a red to suit everyone.
The undertone (whether it has a yellow or blue base) matters a great deal with reds so be sure to choose the one best suited to you if you’re wearing it close to your face. If in doubt, revisit your colour swatch wallet or book a consultation.
Just remember, you don’t have to go top to toe in red! Embrace as much or as little as you like – here’s a few ideas.
Surprisingly versatile! Wear with a slogan top (also on trend), animal print or simple understated top.
Wear with denim jeans for an off-duty look or over a dress for work or dinner out. Invest in a winter coat or mac for a truly statement look.
Red boots have walked onto the scene this time and can make quite a statement if you prefer to let your feet do the talking. If you prefer a more understated look, there are plenty of trainers, loafers and ballet shoes to choose from too. Extra points for embellishments!
A simple way to update any look is with a statement item of jewellery such as a necklace, wrap around a new red scarf or invest in a new bag.
The red lip
It’s not always just about the clothes that you wear, your makeup finishes your whole look off.
An element of confidence is required to carry off a statement lip so make sure you choose the right shade for your skin tone. To keep it in place, use a lip base and a lip liner – both can be purchased from me.
The Colour me Beautiful range of cosmetics has been designed around our colour types and as with clothes, there’s a shade to suit everyone!
A few weeks ago (16 September), I posted a red lipstick colour to suit each of our dominant colour types on my Facebook page. Purchase a Lipstick for £14.50 from me or through my online shop.
