Amy

Today, Glowing Color features Amy.

About Amy: “I am 39 and have worked as a veterinary technician for the last 17 years. I’m also an aspiring artist and nature lover. I like to spend my free time drawing, painting, working on photography, hiking, gardening and hanging out with my pets and family.”

Amy’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I like to wear warmer colors most of the time like rust, orange, olive green. I really like these colors but aren’t sure if they work on me. I also love plum and soft, muted colors.

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

I rarely wear jewel tones as I just don’t like them. I also don’t wear white often. 

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

I feel the most sexy in nudes and very light peach.

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

I have gotten compliments in peach, cranberry and deep teal/blue.

First, how beautiful are Amy’s eyes? Stunning! Although the lighting varies in several photos, I can see that Amy is an Autumn. I suspected this before I even saw her warmer-colored photos when I got to the 2nd photo she sent me of herself in white. The cooler colors, while lovely, are just sitting on her. The warmer colors, particularly the yellow and burnt orange, absolutely light up her face and bring a vivacious spark. Amy is a woman who subconsciously is in tune with her best colors, based on her color interview. Although she sent in more photos of her in cool colors, I hope she will begin to cull her wardrobe to favor these bright and warm tones.

Danni

Today, Glowing Color features Danni.

About Danni: “My name is Danni and I live in Richmond, London. I am married and have 4 cats. I work at Roehampton Uni and like interacting with the students there. I love cooking and as my waistline will sadly confirm, eating too! I went vegetarian recently and am finding it a real challange. I enjoy collage, decoupage, beachcombing and macro photography. Oh! And making jewelry. I also like singing, and bubble baths.”

Danni’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I like dark red, khaki/olive green. I wear lots of earth tones.

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

I dislike royal purple with a passion, find grey boring. White I don’t mind, but it’s not practical!  

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

I always feel pretty and in pink (haha)

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

I get compliments in turquoise and red. And teal.

Danni’s natural hair color is a golden brown according to her, not as copper as you see here.

Danni is an Autumn. I noticed this pretty much right away! The warmer colors soften up her face and bring out a lovely glow. She said she wore earth tones mostly, and I think she will find a nice variety of shades within those tones to work with.

Skinny Black Girl

Today I am featuring a friend of mine, the amazingly talented writer of the award-winning Skinny Black Girl blog.

SBG’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? 

I wear a lot of black. I try to keep my wardrobe minimalistic (I hate stuff) and I find that black pieces are easy to repeat because they don’t stand out too much. Also, I’m a huge fan of the little black dress looks of the early 90s. Now that I’m a grown up, I just wanna look like En Vogue. lol. 

What color(s) do you wear the least? 

Pastels, in general. I find they’re too soft for my liking. I either like neutrals or bold colors.

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

My go-to sexy color was red, but cobalt blue is creeping up the list. 

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

Red, cobalt blue, and bold purples.

SBG in warmer colors:

SBG is a Winter. I see more of SBG than what is represented here, so I can personally attest to the fact that she looks stunning in the bold, cool, jewel tones of Winter. The blue she is pictured in is more of a Summer blue, but in the cobalts and royal blues, she glows like no other! The warmer, softer colors either wash her out or just sit on her. SBG is one of those women who I see and instantly know their season. If you read her interview, the answer is reflected there as well. As a matter of fact, what I would consider her top 3 colors are the colors she gets complimented on most. I think once she starts shopping with the narrower eye of Winter, she is going to be so happy with her purchases going forward (especially as a minimalist).

Side-by-sides are a little difficult here because of the lighting differences in some of the photos, but you can get a general idea. The red lips and coat against her skin are lovely and enchanting. I LOVE the green dress with the stockings, but on SBG the warm, muted green does not light her up the same way. See the difference?

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 

Jeana in cooler colors:

Jeana is a Winter. She should definitely avoid pastels, but the vibrant jewel tones really work for her.

Maritza in warmer colors:

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.

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 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:

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.
