I also decided to take a break from writing about makeup as well as contributing on various makeup boards. You see, I had this desire to learn more about the colors "within" me. Nothing that I would buy or even the makeup that I had, was creating what I wanted. I questioned what it was that I was looking for. Really, I just wanted to look like me...but enhanced. Lately, nothing was working. I kept adding different colors, trying to find that balance.
Somewhere along the way of my research online about skin tone and natural coloring, I came upon Color Analysis. The four seasons you ask? Yes...and much much more than that. I started reading a blog called A Greener Tea which is now (www.12blueprints.com) and learned that instead of just 4 seasons, there are 3 different varients of each season. 12 seasons!!
It's too difficult to explain all on my own but here are some references for you if you are interested:
www.eleablake.com (amazing cosmetics company that offers color analysis with a beautiful line of mineral makeup for each season).
This will help you get the information you need on Personal Color Consultation. I was very fortunate to have been draped by Maytee Garza of Reveal Style Consultancy last year. Maytee draped me as a Soft Autumn, which is a neutral warm season. Now I understand why I couldn't handle the depth or brightness that I thought I should be able to handle! This draping has answered so many questions for me about my coloring. Not only am I able to choose the correct makeup for myself but correct clothing colors as well. As I go through my color journey I am constantly surprised about color and how powerful it is!
