There's nothing as sweet as success!
What I love most about doing color analysis, is seeing how beautiful women are when they find their signature colors and wear them. Today, I want to share with you what my virtual color analysis process is like and give you examples of how wonderful it is when you wear your signature colors.
Meet Celeste Bethell Purdie...
And just below, here, is a sample of her personalized color palette...

Introduction to the Clear Dominant Color Home
Do you ever whistle while you work?
I ask because sometimes color analysis makes me think of Snow White. Though she may be in need of relationship counseling, one thing that is clear is her coloring.
She is our icon for the Clear Dominant color home. Clear Dominants have and need lots of contrast. They don’t do so well with monochromatic outfits.
Are You Clear Dominant?
Have you ever shied away from wearing a color that was just too bright for you?
The marvelous thing about the clear color home is that they will almost never need to avoid them. Women who are Clear can wear colors that would be way too bright for the rest of us, and on them, they will look normal.
They might not even seem as bright when those who are Clear Dominant wear them! Fun, right?
Check out this example, a woman of color who is Clear. See all of that glorious color she can wear?
What do you think? Is Clear your color home?
If it is, you get to have the fun of playing with all those bright color combinations, to see which ones you love best.
If you're not sure, find out by taking the free color analysis quiz I created for women of color.
If you don't quite feel right in the clothes you wear, you may be thinking it's you, when actually, it's just that you're wearing the wrong colors.
I can promise you that you will never look more beautiful than when you are wearing your ideal colors. They will help you shine your light in a way nothing else can.

Introduction to the Warm Dominant Color Home
This color palette is probably my favorite, though I love the Deep palette, too. I can wear colors from both of them and will probably become more Deep as I continue to age.
Did you know that women become cooler in coloring as their hair greys?
In my most recent color analysis training, my mentor & teacher, Shari Braendel told us that Warm Dominants are very resistant to giving up their warm colors.
But the truth is that as we age, we begin to lose some of our coloring, and once we have gone completely grey, most of us who were Warm will not be Warm anymore.
Although I know this is true, when she mentioned that, I told her that I was exactly like the people she described! I said I was planning to die in my warm colors!
But I have already begun to notice that the orange in my eyes is not as vivid, and the warmth in my hair is being replaced by the spread of the dreaded grey. Even my skin is less golden than it used to be.
Sad but true. And wearing grey hair with my favorite pumpkin oranges would be like wearing a coat with a tank top, shorts and flip flops.
Have you noticed your coloring changing over the years? Let me know in a comment.
But having a good color analyst can help because she can help you begin to transition your wardrobe. Or, if you color your hair, she can re-do your personalized palette so it supports your true coloring and whatever new coloring has been added. ;)
And some women have coloring that reaches into more than one color palette or type. Though I will tell you which is your primary color home, since I create a personalized palette, too, I'll tell you any colors that suit you from the other palettes, as well.
How to Know if You are Warm Dominant
If everything about your coloring is warm and golden, then you are Warm Dominant.
But if you are not sure that’s true, then try a few warm colors, like pumpkin orange or tomato red. If they are right, it will seem almost like they emanated from you. If it’s wrong, it will likely seem very wrong.
Warms need medium contrast. So if you're a Warm, don’t wear your lightest colors with your darkest ones. Wear both with colors at about the middle of the range.
The picture below is a woman with warm coloring, along with outfit formula and makeup recommendations. For more information about the makeup, click the image.
