Colour Consultant : In-person Individual or Group


If you want to make the smallest change with the biggest impact (AND look younger AND save money & stress) then a Colour Consultant makeover is for you!

Here’s me explaining Colour Matching to Karl Stefanovic & Sarah Abo on the Today Show…



What Is A Colour Consultant?

I use the 4×4 Seasonal Colour Wheel but I modernise it by fusing that 1980’s science with my 20+ years real life fashion industry experience, delivering a bespoke, flattering palette you can actually shop in to.

It’s a system I’ve been studying for a decade alongside almost 900 client photos to use as reference points which allows me to create your Colour Capsule© Wardrobe

How Does Colour Matching Work?

UNDERTONE : As your personal colour consultant, it’s not about telling you that pink or green ‘is your colour’ but more about teaching you the TYPE of pinks and greens that flatter your undertone, whether you’re cool, warm or undertone neutral

COLOUR LEVEL : This is assessing the contrast between your features and providing the right level of colour for your particular look ie. dramatic, soft, strong etc.

But Your Colour Palette Is Only Half The Story

I pull on my 15 years experience designing collections as a global fashion designer so you come away with an in-depth understanding of what suits you and WHY so you can apply this theory to make-up, sunglasses etc.

PLUS part 2 – how to interpret your swatches in to clothes AND how to put them on your body – the key area lots of colour consultants omit because they may not need to be accountable for taking you shopping

I teach this through my unique ‘CAKE & ICING’ Colour Strategy to create maximum bang for buck!

Without this, you’ll only know half your story…

How Else Is My Colour Consult Different?

Bespoke Colour Palette

I create a bespoke colour palette tailored exclusively to you as nowadays our colourings have become much more intricate the more global we become, so most clients are a combination of more than one season

Because this system was based on what ‘should’ suit you from an 80’s science point of view, I often ‘edit’ pre-packed colour seasons because not all shades actually flatter YOUR unique features


The Modern 4×4

I still use the professional colour drapes as used industry wide, but these were created decades ago and the way we wear colour has changed, so I update my drapes to reflect this

I also create simple and discrete colour swatch wallets that omits the need for all the complicated key systems I was seeing


What If I Don’t Like My Colours?

Don’t worry, we have strategies for that, but it rarely ever happens as once you SEE and FEEL the difference flattering colour makes to your appearance, you’ll never look back!

The Psychology Of Colour

Studies have shown that wearing certain hues directly effect our mood such as sunny yellow and tranquil blue. Our choice of clothing is generally emotional which starts with deciding what type of colour we’re in the mood for:

“Do I want to attract attention?” – wearing bold pops of colour, or

“Do I want to be ignored?” – wearing dull grey or black

The shades we wear also have a huge impact on our personal branding and how others judge us
