Color analysis is a process during which a trained color analyst identifies a set or palette of colors that is perfect for you. It's a great way to avoid the mistake of wearing colors that look like they are wearing you.
But sometimes, color analysis does not work well for women of color. Watch the video below to learn more about why...
Color Analysis for Women of Color
One reason color analysis can be a challenge for women of color is that color analysts, in the past, have been taught to believe, and therefore, expect that women of color are likely to fall into the deep seasons. I suppose that that is because their coloring is often deeper than that of Caucasian women.
But it's a mistake to assume that means anything, because it is each woman's relationship to other colors that matters, not how she compares to other women.
If you actually use color analysis - free of bias - to analyze a women of color's relationship to other colors, you'll find that they fit into every category.
Are there categories that are less likely to have women of color? My best answer to that is maybe.
But it doesn't matter. We just need to know when they do fit into each category.
Because women of color have failed to get a fair shake for so long on the color analysis world, I am specializing in working with women of color.
And if you know my own color analysis story, you'll know that I was told I was the wrong season when I was much younger and gave many years away to wearing the wrong colors because of it. I don't want that to keep happening to other women of color.
And one reason I was so excited to find Limelife is their commitment to creating color that flatters women of color and makes us glow. Once I help you identify your best colors, I don't want you to face a limited makeup selection, I want the makeup world to be yours, too.
So LimeLife is a great way to match you to your best makeup colors, as well.
