Iconic Style Tips

If you follow us over on our Facebook page you’ll have seen that we’ve been asking you what has been the best style advice your Mum has given you over the years.
From ‘less is more’ through to ‘don’t show your underwear’ we’ve loved the pearls of wisdom you’ve been sharing and it certainly goes to show that Mum really does know best.
Today we look at style lessons from iconic women that we can all apply today.
“If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes you can get away with ..

New Brand Alert: Cefinn

At colour me beautiful we love to discover new brands so when we heard that Samantha Cameron was launching her own clothing line we couldn’t wait to take a peak. After all, throughout her husband’s time as Prime Minster, Samantha was known for her impeccable taste and sense of style.
Cefinn, which launched earlier this month with a capsule collection of 36 pieces is, as you might expect, reflective of Samantha’s personal style with clean lines, a simple colour palette and elegant silhouettes. S..

The Colour(s) of Love

February is often thought to be one of the most romantic months of the year, with Valentine’s Day prompting a plethora of red roses, pink hearts, declarations of love and even proposals of marriage. As such, it’s almost guaranteed that wherever you look on the high street during February there will be LOTS of red and LOTS of pink – both colours associated with passion, romance and love.
Red and pink, which never used be seen worn together have more recently become an acceptable colour combinati..

High Heels & Workplace Dress Codes

This week MPs have stated that the government must enforce a law to ban sexist dress rules at work that discriminate against women. Here at colour me beautiful, we are delighted to hear about this, surely to have a rule for one person, but not another because of their gender is both unfair and sexist?
What interests us as image consultants though, is how different people will ultimately interpret dress codes in different ways. It’s all down to our style personality you see; so whilst one woman ..

Why We Should All Live in La La Land

Unless you have been living in a cave for the past month, it won't have escaped your notice that there's a new Hollywood blockbuster hitting our cinema screens right now going by the name of La La Land.
This nostalgic Hollywood musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is one of the most colourful displays of filmography to hit our screens for some time, so naturally the team at colour me beautiful were keen to get front row seats to see it as soon as it opened last week!
After al..

New Year, Same Wardrobe

We’re almost two weeks into 2017 and along with the influx of ‘SALE’ and ‘MONEY OFF’ emails, we’re also seeing lots of ‘NOTHING NEW’ messages; people who are shying away from the shops and instead vowing to buy no new clothes, some for up to a year (take a look at one of our favourite sites The Women’s Room for their recent post on this here.)
You may have heard the statistic that most of us wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time; we get into the habit of reaching for the same items time and a..

Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 – Greenery

Every year Pantone select a shade that they feel represents what is happening in our global culture and therefore serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude. For 2017 that shade is Greenery;

“A refreshing and revitalising shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.” Most shades of green are associated with nature and Pantone's 'Greenery', which is very similar to Apple Green in our colour me beautiful swatches, is a zesty, yellow green tone, making it perfect for those..

Christmas Day Style

Today's blog post is celebrating National Christmas Jumper day, which is taking place up and down the UK to raise money for Save The Children.
In recent years the Christmas jumper has taken on an almost cult-like status with the choice ranging from classic and understated festive patterns, all the way through to flashing reindeer noses!
With that in mind, we thought we'd take you through some different outfit options to help you decide which look you'll be going for on the big d..

Colourful Christmas

We may be a little biased, but having your colours analysed is truly a transformational experience and if you're struggling to think of a special gift for your partner, friend or relative this Christmas then a colour me beautiful colour consultation is really something special!
Here are a few reasons why…
1. Wearing colours that suit you (i.e that work in harmony with your skin tone, eye and hair colour) will make your skin glow and your eyes sparkle! It can also make you appear more yo..

Pucker Up – It’s Party Season!

Here at colour me beautiful we LOVE getting dressed to the nines and heading out on the town during the festive season. A bit of sparkle, a fabulous pair of shoes and a killer dress all make for the perfect party look.
All too often we’ll spend hours, or even days, searching for the perfect outfit for that special festive event, only to leave our beauty look to the last minute. This party season make sure you plan ahead to ensure your pout is perfectly polished too.
A statement lip is the look..
