They say wearing your best colors in your hair, makeup and outfits will make you appear vibrant, healthy and even younger. Whereas, wearing colors that are not in harmony with you may make you appear dull, washed out, older and even magnify skin imperfections.
The new free ‘Shopping My Colors’ phone App has been introduced to easily isolate your best colors for your hair, makeup, clothing and accessories at your salon, at home or even while you are at the shopping mall. It has been developed by Image Consultant and Color Analysis Professional, Carol Brailey.
‘Shopping My Colors’ is now available on the App Store and Google Play. It aims to take the guesswork out of your appearance-based color decisions to make your shopping experiences easy and efficient while ensuring you are choosing colors that are in harmony with your coloring to make you appear your most vibrant self.
The App is the perfect shopping companion for those who want to shop with their best colors on their phone and/or those who want to explore the world of color analysis and use color analysis while shopping.
This App includes:
Sample color references, sample looks, hair color and makeup color recommendations for each seasonal color palette.
Steps to choose your best hair and makeup colors.
Options on how to find out your best colors both offline and online, including do-it-yourself videos.
Links to videos and blogs on color analysis.
Sample looks in the App are updated frequently from Pinterest Boards.
If your coloring is cool and best suited to lighter value and low intensity colors, the True Summer looks in the App may be for you (sample screenshot below):
If your coloring is warm and best suited to lower value and lower intensity colors, the True Autumn colors in the App may be for you (sample screenshot below):
I hope this post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
