Today, Glowing Color features Chizuka.
“I am from Tokyo, Japan. Came here (los angeles, California) in 2006. I was working 5 years as a carpenter until 2011. Now, I am studying construction business in college, but having said that, I am a girly girl, I love wearing dresses and heels; Although, I do wear sweat pants and sandals most of the times because I am also a mom of one 2 years boy and twin baby boys… But, I still want to look good in sweatpants! I do flamenco dance as my hobby. I love all kind of dancing.(hip hop, Argentine tangos..etc).”

Spring                                                brown yellow

 

Chizuka is a Winter. I knew it the second I saw her in the cobalt blue. The warm colors washed her out, but she is absolutely glowing in the cool jewel tones of Winter. I think once she starts adding those bolder colors into her wardrobe she will feel like a new woman! Chizuka definitely tends to naturally gravitate toward summer colors. She’s on the right track with the cool tones, but just needs to make them deeper and more vibrant to incorporate Winter. Chizuka, I especially know how it feels to be a mom of young children and feeling drab….then turning it all around with the right colors. It is so refreshing! I can’t wait to see your updates!

Julie

Today Glowing Color features Julie. Julie writes,

Hello,I’m a French girl who’d liked to receive your advices to know which colors look best on me cause I can decide. Am I Spring? Winter? Which hair color is for me? and so on…

I’m Julie, thirty years old soon and French!
No, I’m not living in Paris but in Strasbourg in the East of France, on the border of Germany.

My passions are creative arts and dance (modern jazz). 

I work in a school  but I’m not a teacher, it’s a temporary job. In fact, I’d like to get a job more creative in the field of art.
I love to create, painting, photographing and sewing. My latest creations was plushes (or do say “soft toys”?).
You can see some of them here:

Be sure to check out Julie’s plush toys; they are cute! Let’s now get into her Color Interview.

What color(s) do you wear the most?

Greys (but not too dark grey like charcoal), black, navy blue, blue jean and sometimes purple but not very often. I used to wear a little bit of kaki when my hair were dyed in ginger.
I like discrete, easy to wear colours but I’m currently trying to put some colours in my closet with purple, red and blue- green.

In fact I recently start to like this blue-green color, I think you say “deep teal” in English but I’m not sure in French we says “bleu canard”), when my hairs were dried in ginger it was even better looking.
This colour seems to bring out my eyes (that’s what people said to me), and when I’m wearing this colour they tell me that it changes my eye colour which seems to be the exact same colour .
Strange isn’t it?

What color(s) do you wear the least?

– Pink.

– Beige. I look like a ghost and disappear with this colour.

– Brown. I used to wear it when I was light blond but now I think it was a mistake. I don’t like to wear it anymore, it doesn’t seem to fit me (and my man hates when I wear brown he says it’s not a color for me, well in fact, he begs me to take off the clothes in that color but maybe he isn’t a big fan of this colour at all. …).

Actually,  I’m not “attire” by which seems to be “autumn colors” in general even when I was a ginger it doesn’t work with me and I must confess that I secretly hope to not be “an autumnal girl” ha ha.

Anh I’m not a big fan of pastels colors, I think it’s because it doen’t look so great on my light and white skin….

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

Red without a hesitation! With blond or ginger hair I really like it!

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? 

“bleu canard”in French  (deep teal?) 

Keep in mind Julie’s natural hair color is dark blonde. The ginger-red is a dye in these photos, though you can see some of her natural color at the top as opposed to the ends of her hair. Let’s take a look at Julie in cooler colors first.

Right off the bat, I can eliminate Summer for Julie. That leaves Winter, Spring, and Autumn. Now let’s look at Julie in warmer colors.

First, let me say that I think it is nearly impossible for Julie to look bad in anything. She is beautiful! With that out of the way, Julie had two telling photos that showed me her season. Those two are her in the yellow and orange. So Julie is the one season she wanted to avoid. Julie is an Autumn. Now, commonly, those who hate the season in which they belong are not wearing their strongest colors within the season. Just because you are an Autumn does not mean that ALL Autumn colors are going to have you at your glowiest (do you like that made-up word?). I will specify which Autumn colors Julie should seek out and I think will make her a happy camper. For example, brown is an entire world. There are so many shades and variations. Some browns will work for Julie, and some browns will not. As for Julie being attracted to the teal/peacock blue. This is what I call a “fun” color. You may love it because it matches your eyes, or it is your favorite color, or whatever other reason. You have your “glow” colors and your “fun” colors. I am here to advise you on your “glow” colors. I will not tell anyone they can’t wear their “fun” colors, but that is their own decision. Personally, you can pry purple clothes from my cold, dead hands because it is not in my season but I will wear it anyway because I love it!

Now I’m sure you’re thinking, “Julie looked pretty in some of the cooler colors!” Yes, but you’ll see they have nothing on her in warmer colors. Let’s do some direct comparisons:
