Don’t be afraid of colour!
Black is timeless, sophisticated, elegant and slimming. I won’t dispute it. However, some of us hide behind it when it comes to fashion because black is safe. For makeup it’s the same; brown and taupe are the safe colour options. I’m guilty of throwing on the little black dress and my taupe shadow and stepping out to face the world; job done. But it never really feels special does it? It’s acceptable, even a little chic, but it’s missing something?
We colour our homes, our gardens and celebrate colour in art, yet when it comes to ourselves I think we can fall short of being fashion forward by playing it safe and avoiding colour. I know I do!
So I’m making it my mission to add a bit of colour every day and the results have been astounding! I feel more confident, I get more compliments, people smile at me more and I feel a bit happier, colour influences our moods in a way I never realised.
Now you don’t have to wear clothes like this…
or makeup like this…
But how about adding just a “POP” of colour.
A bright lip – try matte shades or sheer if you don’t like your lips to stand out too much.
or even carry a bright bag, there are some gorgeous colours available this year
You could try a scarf
or even just a bold piece of jewellery
A subtle sweep of bright liner can look stunning
or even a hat
or a pair of bright shoes
A “pop” of colour can be the perfect way to get comfortable with colour. Are you ready to brave it?
