I analyze your best colors to bring out your own personal glow.

Chocolate brown is such a cozy color when done right. When done wrong, it can look blah as hell, but the key is to either get some sheen or some kind of texture going–sequins, iridescence, cable-knit, etc. Autumns look washed out in black, or the black just sits on them but brown gets such a bad rap they hesitate to turn toward it. Start incorporating more brown into your wardrobe and thank me later! It really softens up your look. Another hint would be for Autumns (and Springs!) to try brown eyeliner and/or mascara instead of black. I did this and was amazed at the difference. Black eyeliner always made me look undead, but brown brought out the fiiiiiierce.

If you would like me to do a color analysis for you (includes blog feature with pictures and customized color shopping list with your own personal power color) that will bring out your own unique glow, contact me at glowingcolor@gmail.com for rates.

  1. You know what tho, to me the chocolate brown has been HARD to use in place of black, like is counter intuitive and almost the color of my skin in the summer so I cant say ive gone hardcore into it cause ….idk makes me feel naked and such, I do try gold stuff when I have it on tho and implement it on prints

  2. hmm good food for thought. I’m going to have to incoporate some browns in my wardrobe

  3. QQ: Navy and charcoal gray are also good ‘black’ substitutes if the brown is too close to your skin color.

    kingsmomma: I started off with making my work pants brown instead of black. Made such a difference!
