Colour Trends for Autumn Winter 2018

BROWN IS THE NEW BLACK! Finally there’s a new ‘IT’ colour in town and it seems to have come out of nowhere! Brown! That’s right girls it’s time to push all that grey and navy to the back of your wardrobe and make room for the colour of the season: ‘Brown’! The colour brown has had a facelift and in my opinion it’s long overdue. I’ve been a colour analyst for nearly 15 years and I can assure you ‘brown’ is the most flattering colour for all my ‘autumns’ out there because unlike black which can often be way too […]

FREE MAC Red lipstick!

FREE MAC Red lipstick!

During any of our Style ME colour analysis sessions we always ask our clients “How do you feel about the colour red?” Why do we ask? Because the colour red is probably the one colour that people are so divided by. When I ask about ‘red’ what I’m really asking is “how do you feel about red lipstick?” From experience women either love wearing it or they put their nose up to it. Dig a little deeper though, like most things, people are only prejudiced about something because they’re unfamiliar with it and when it comes to red lipstick, trust […]

Best Makeup for Hot Weather

Best Makeup for Hot Weather

Although I’m not doing that much Personal Shopping during July and August (can’t bear rummaging through rails of sales stock), what I’m inundated with, is Colour Analysis clients. Summer is the time people generally wear more colour and are more intrigued to know which colours actually compliment them, especially if they’re splashing out on new clothes for weddings and holidays. One thing none of us were prepared for this Summer was this extreme hot weather, this never ending heat wave and although temperatures are no longer in the 30’s it’s still pretty hot and the one question I keep getting […]

Can the right colours make me feel beautiful?

Can the right colours make me feel beautiful?

If by beautiful you mean having a radiant, healthier and youthful complexion then absolutely! Image consultants from companies such as Colour Me Beautiful have been finding men and women their range of most flattering colours for decades. What started as a tool to find executives the right colours ‘to close a deal’ or ‘make a great first impression’ soon became a household craze of the 80’s. Colour Analysis became a hit and women simply wouldn’t shop without their trusted colour swatch booklet especially if they wanted to create a head to toe matching look. Things have changed a lot since […]

Post Surgery – Do you need a Personal Stylist?

Post Surgery – Do you need a Personal Stylist?

So many of our clients come to us after an illness, post chemotherapy or post an operation for example where they’ve had to take so many drugs and steroids that they simply don’t recognize their body shape anymore. They’ve gained weight and their clothes no longer fit them. Maybe they want a fresh start and as we all know nothing signifies a new start better than a new wardrobe. So in most cases it’s people gaining weight but every now and then we get clients who have lost weight and need guidance on how to dress for their slimmer frame. For […]

Sales Sales Sales

It’s the middle of January, everyone is broke and the shops are a depressing site, full of the end of sale rails. As a personal stylist I avoid shopping in the sales like a plague and I definitely don’t take any clients personal shopping during this week. Strange how things have changed, before I became a Personal Stylist I loved the sales. I was always looking for a bargain especially if it was a designer piece! Just seeing a significant price drop was enough for me to feel like I just had to buy it. These are the items that […]
