What is a Color Type?

A Color Type is simply a description of your natural body coloring - skin tone and natural hair color - and a description of your best "looks" for clothing and makeup. This is the first step in finding your Color Type. Please read this section carefully. Your Color Type is the key to looking your absolute best FOREVER.

Finding your Color Type

Lists of well-known women with their "Color Type", best "clarity" and the designation of "strong" or "delicate" coloring will help guide you to make a decision that will be LIFE CHANGING! If you want to look phenomenal, nothing is as important as wearing incredibly flattering colors and color combinations!
How dark or light your skin has nothing to do with your Color Type - I am referring to women of all races. The darkest skin tones and lightest skin tones are found in all 12 Color Types. Also, there are no single categories for all blonds, all brunettes or all redheads, nor are there for all Black, Asian, Hispanic, Native American or Caucasian women.
Although I have made only four lists of "celebrities" there are really 12 different Color Types because many people are a Cross between two - half delicate coloring and half strong coloring, for example. If this is you, you will find that you walk a fine line between being overpowered and being underpowered! For some of you, a "light" just went on - now you know why it's been so hard for you to get it right.
