06 Nov Color won’t bite! How to bring color into your style?
If you came across one of my posts, you know that color means a world to me. Color helped me not only express my emotions that I didn’t allow myself to feel, but also discovered my true beauty – I’m not competing myself with anyone here – that I saw by surrounding myself with my colors. Why color is powerful? You’ll find out soon!
Everything that surrounds you has a color. Every meal you eat is a combination of colors. Look at the meaning of color in business! If you analyze the marketing activities of large brands that enter the market, you’ll learn the importance of colors – logos, uniforms, promotional materials, etc. It’s hard not to mention the interior designers who have a lot to do with color. They adapt colors to the needs of their clients.
Why do we seem to have different standards when it comes to style?
Do you think your communication starts when you open your mouth and bring out the words? You have to get a chance to speak and express yourself. You need to build trust and gain the interest of people who will listen to you. That’s when color comes into play as an important communication tool. There is nothing to be afraid of here. Just open yourself to new experiences.
Your body creates a whole that is characterized by its proportions, shapes, and colors. Your colors – eyes, eyebrows, lips, skin, and hair – create a natural palette that you can show and highlight with the help of colors that naturally interact and complement each other. It’s like putting foundation make-up and powder under your swollen eyes to cover it. The same effect you’re able to achieve by wearing the right colors close to your face. You can harmonize and brighten your skin, as well as enhance the color of the eyes and mouth.
This rule works the other way around as well. Some colors take your natural beauty away and make you look older, ill, tired, and turn your lips blue. The good news is, you can still wear all colors without looking wishy-washy. Let’s say that you’re wearing a blouse in which color doesn’t match your beauty type. Add a piece from your color palette! It can be earrings, a blazer, or a scarf. Whatever makes you happy.
The real fun starts when you know your colors. You don’t have to waste your time on makeup, and you’re so confident that you take charge of the situation. you know, you see and feel that you look good! You send a clear message – Hello world! It’s me! I know who I am, what I want, and I won’t hesitate! 😂 You attract attention and build trust because everything fits together.
How do you know which colors are in your palette?
You have two options. The first one is observation. You observe how your face – without makeup and in daylight – interacts with different colors. Look at your eyes, nose, and mouth. These areas respond quickly to colors. In the beginning, you probably won’t see much of a difference. Colors take time and sensitivity. Trust me, be patient. You’ll start to notice the difference! Wear, feel, and observe.
The second one is color analysis made by a professionalist – like me. Color analysis is a process of finding the right colors based on your face. It can be made virtually or in person. Read more about color analysis on my website: www.magdanetkowska.com/colorme/
It’s hard for me to agree that black adds class and sophistication. It looks great but only with a strong accent in a different color like red lipstick. Black is considered the heaviest of colors that can overwhelm and dim. Also, the atmosphere around black color – uncertainty, lack of trust, camouflage. It doesn’t sound like a good first impression that can build strong relationships, right?
When I see women who only wear black for most of the year, questions come to my mind – Are you really truly seeing yourself? If you don’t show emotions, and if you don’t give me the reason to start the conversation, how can I trust you? What are you running from? What are you hiding from yourself?
Break the black! Even if only with accessories. Add color to your wardrobe to bring some life, emotions, and character to your style. Mix, have fun, experiment! You won’t hurt anybody if one day you come to work in a red skirt. You will get a lot of compliments because people will immediately notice the difference! ❤️ You’ll also improve your mood and boost your confidence. That’s one of the biggest benefits of wearing colors. You can’t fake confidence, you either have it or not. The craziest part? High contrast colors arouse respect.
Girl, if you wake up in the morning happy and excited, show it! Maybe another time, you wake up in a romantic mood feel like flirting. Show it! If you feel blue and you don’t want to talk to people, show it! Use colors to express how you feel. People will read you. People will see your message. Listen, if I had to describe every situation that I had with women approaching me most wonderfully, I would be rich. I develope trust immediately. I am myself, I show creativity, joy, empathy, and love, which I have too much. 😉
If you don’t know where to start, I have a piece of advice for you. Start from the beginning. Go to several stores and pick up clothes in different colors. Observe how they make you feel and how they change the way you look. Your intuition will lead the way. You don’t need an audience, do whatever makes you feel comfortable. I can only say that this works! Only the first step is the hardest. Need some inspiration? Visit my Pinterest!
I know you can be scared. Nobody taught you about colors. Fashion magazines also don’t educate in this field, which is surprising if you consider the fact that they always hire fashion stylists who know that color matters. Don’t let your fear dictates your choices. Show up for yourself. If you want me to create a list of basic emotions that build individual colors, let me know in the comments section below. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll learn about colors too. It’s so good to be back! I seriously missed writing. But I’m glad I decided to take a break and work on my website. I would never finish otherwise. Now, when the party is over, I can focus on you.
As always, I’m waiting for your comments. What’s your current relationship with colors?
