After having Ava I feel like I’ve lost my way in my style. My body shape has changed and I’m not sure what suits me any more. Colour Me Beautiful is “the perfect place to find everything you need to enhance your image and boost your confidence.” Sounds ideal for me so when I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing their book I jumped at the chance. I will also be having a full consultation in the new year which I’m really looking forward to.
Colour Me Beautiful the book, aims to bring out the best in you, by giving you confidence, making you unique and helping you to make the most of your shape by wearing the best colour and style of clothes for you.
The book is split in to sections. Finding your style is the first, with a style personality quiz and breakdowns of the different styles. I’m a mix of romantic and city chic. I think it changes depending on my mood, but romantic is definitely my preferred style. Once you know your style there are tips on how to make the most of your style, your colour palette, how to accessorize, hair and makeup.
Understanding colour is the next section. I’ve always been intrigued by what skin colouring I have and what colours suit me but have never spent much time on it. The book talks about the psychology of colour and then helps you to discover your colour type and gives you examples of colours that you should wear for clothes, make up and hair. I think I am a soft colour as I don’t really fit in any of the other dominant colours. Hopefully my consultation will help me with this.
Size doesn’t matter shape does is a really interesting section of the book helping you to identify your body shape. With 6 shapes to choose from you may be surprised. I had always thought hourglass was more curvy than I am, however I come out as a neat hourglass. The book also explains proportions and scale to really narrow down your body shape and size. There are then sections on who can wear what, your working wardrobe, case studies and creating your capsule wardrobe all based on your body shape.
This book has so much information, I could spend hours reading it and it makes me excited to try out some of the tips and advice I have picked up. There is much more included such as your everyday wardrobe, underwear, accessories, organising your wardrobe, looking beautiful with a bump, glamming up, keeping current, ages and stages, how to shop and even perfect packing.
This would make a great present for any woman. For your chance to win a copy of the Colour Me Beautiful Book, enter via the Gleam form below.
