My 2023 Makeup Picks: Seasonal Colour Analysis for Autumns
For those of you who don't know what a Seasonal Colour Analysis is, it's a tool used to help us figure out what colours harmonize with our natural eye, hair and undertone skin colour. These colours will give us a glow, meaning it will will make us look more youthful and make our eyes sparkle.
The Seasonal Colour Analysis divides everyone into four basic seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. My client's that have already been allocated a season, had the Style Review service with me. They have received a complimentary colour swatch in their season to take with them shopping and a Makeup guide with recommendations on which shades to look for.

Below are some of my recommendations to help you get started on your makeup colour journey:
Yellow-based (golden or apricot tone) foundations are best as you have a warm undertone.
Look for the words “warm (W), golden, yellow, neutral (N), olive, peach, tan, honey, or beige” to help you get the right shade.
Avoid shades that say “cool (C), rosy, red or pink” undertones.
*Keep in mind if your skin type (sensitive, combination, dry or oily) to find your best foundation.
