Jeana

Today, Glowing Color features Jeana.

About Jeana: “I live in a town next to Orlando, FL. I work for a large commercial insurance company. For fun, I work on my family history-genealogy. I have a son 22 and a daughter 23-both working and in college. I’ve been married 25 years. We have 3 dogs. I have one sister. I lost both my parents last year-mom in June and Dad in November. It’s been a hard couple of years worrying and trying to help them. I think that’s why I am ready for this “upgrade”. I want to be the best me I can be. It seems silly not to know what colors flatter you. If I am going to buy a new shirt and I can get it in a few different colors, I’d like to get the one that is most flattering—not the color that I just like.”

Jeana’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? bottoms-black, navy, grey; tops-teal, purple, pink, maroon, light grey, white

What color(s) do you wear the least? never wear ivory, yellow; wear very little black near my face either

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? purples, teals

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? lavender, teal, red

Tayler is a Winter. The red is what gave it away; my eyes are drawn to her in red and it brings out so much in her face, whereas the yellow and warmer colors just sit on her and draw attention away from her lovely face.

Maritza is a Winter. The fuchsia and the royal blue jumped out right away. Her face looks so clear and bright in these colors. Maritza should definitely stay close to the bolder, more vibrant Winter colors and avoid the light and pastel cool colors. Also, go back and read her Color Interview. She was very in tune with her season unconsciously.

Courtney

Today, Glowing Color features Courtney.

About Courtney: “I recently found your website and am very much enjoying it!  I’ve always enjoyed fashion, but I want to learn to select clothes that really flatter me and my coloring.  Also, as someone who used to be a natural blond and now have dull brown hair, I’m trying to figure out the best hair color for my skin tone. I live near San Francisco, and work in San Francisco.  I’m 32, an attorney specializing in tax law and work with nonprofit organizations and charitable tax planning.  For fun I read, travel, dance, take long walks.”

Courtney’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? Black and white — clean, classic, and everything in my closet mixes and matches.

What color(s) do you wear the least? Blue (all shades of blue I wear rarely).

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? Sexy – red. Beautiful – coral or peach.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? Coral or bright pink. 

Courtney in cooler colors:

black gray red hot pink magenta blue  green

Courtney in warmer colors:

ivory yellowpeach orange olive green

Courtney is a Spring. The cooler colors just sit on her, but her glow comes to life in the warmer colors. My eyes go straight to her face when she’s wearing light yellow and peach, but directly to the fabric when she’s wearing blue or pink. My initial thought was that she would be an Autumn, but my eyes kept being drawn to her in the lighter, warmer colors. She can wear some of the deeper, more vibrant warm colors, but the light tones of Spring really bring out her glow. I will also send some hair color ideas to her.

Laura

Today, Glowing Color features Laura.

I’m Laura from Dublin in Ireland. Mother to a gorgeous boy and work full time within fashion retail. I love clothes and I’m usually drawn to bright colours and bold patterns although been trying to stick to block colour of late. I start to doubt my choices as my sisters are both natural blondes and look great in soft & muted shades and sometimes I feel like a clown next to them, so thought now is as good a time as any to finally get a second opinion on what season I am and to sort out my wardrobes. I am kickstarting the year with a new healthy lifestyle plan and would love the confidence in knowing I am wearing the right colours that suit me when I lose the final phase of baby weight . Perhaps not the need to wear as much makeup outside of work to colour my face??? If that makes sense.

Laura’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? not really one colour my closet is like a rainbow, but greens and nude-blush shade.

What color(s) do you wear the least? brown, black close to my face, orange, purple.

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? navy, nude, orange red.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? green or navy 

Before we look at Laura’s photos, here is a shot of her with a hair color closer to her natural color:

Laura is a Winter. Her strong features and lovely eyes pop in the bold, cooler jewel colors of winter compared to being a bit washed out in the warmer colors. Her coloring is also too deep for Summer, hence her feeling not quite right in pastels. I think once her hair lightens a bit, and she sticks to her Winter colors, she will continue to stun.

Ari

Today, Glowing Color features Ari.

About Ari: “My name is Ari, I’m 21 I’m a studying clothing, textiles, and Art. I work at Starbucks as a barista and I live in a little mountain town that’s really dull so I love road trips and finding reasons to wander!”

Ari’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? Black! lots and lots of black! I’m a recovering teenage goth and learning to be comfortable in colors is hard!

What color(s) do you wear the least? probably yellow.

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? yellowy old looking green, or purple!

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? probably this gorgeous velvet poncho that has warm fall colors in it, yellows, reds, greens and oranges.

No doubt about it, Ari is an Autumn. The olive green jacket gave it away! There were also clues leading up to this in her Color Interview–go back and read what colors make her feel beautiful, the colors she gets the most compliments in. There might as well have been glorious autumn leaves falling delicately over her interview. Ari’s natural hair color is an ash brown, which she is currently trying to get back to, growing out her old reddish hair color. I think this is a great idea, and I will send her some other suggestions as well.
