Coco Chanel, an outspoken personality who changed the way women dressed with her revolutionary approach to fashion. Many of her words still resonate with us today, although here at Colour Me Beautiful, we would argue that there are more colours than black, but that is a discussion for another day!
Let's have a look at some of her famous quotes:
"The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you"
Wise words indeed and this was before colour analysis was even a thing. That said, we would tweak this slightly to read; the best shade in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you. There are only twelve colours on a colour wheel (plus black and white) but there are over 10 million different shades. Our clients receive 42 of their very best shades of colour in their swatch wallets. There's a red, a blue, a green, a white, a black, a brown and so on, for you too.

"If you're sad, add more lipstick and attack"
Never a truer word spoken. We sometimes forget the power of lipstick and how it can make us feel, especially over lockdown last year. It can instantly change your face from drab-to-fab, giving a boost of confidence when it's needed, or merely put a smile on your face when you catch yourself in the mirror. Just remember to choose a knockout shade that complements your own colouring. Find your best colours here.
"Fashion fades, only style remains the same"
Fashion is very much of a temporary nature, a fad, whereas style is something more permanent and more individual. By understanding your own style personality, you can create your own 'brand' and ultimately a versatile wardrobe that works perfectly for your lifestyle. We talk about your style personality in all of our sessions, because this is the starting point for our recommendations.
"The age of a woman is not important: you can be wonderful in your 20s, amazing in your 40s and stay fabulous for the rest of your life"
In our opinion, this is one of Coco Chanel's best quotes. Our clients come to us at all ages because life doesn't stop at 40. In fact, many of our older clients feel more fantastic and confident as they age. Once you understand how to dress your body shape, your style personality and of course, your most flattering colours, you will feel fabulous for the rest of your life.
