Color, line and personal style
It is fascinating how the right blouse color can make a woman look at least 5 years younger. If you are ever given a chance to be a witness or a subject to professional Personal Color Analysis, do not hesitate and take it. Take a seat, make yourself comfortable and watch the magic happen right in front of your eyes. In a quiet shelter of 4 neutral grey walls of a color studio colorful drapes change slowly under a woman’s face. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… Suddenly time stops and you hold your breath. Her skin becomes clear and tight, laugh lines around her mouth smoothen, facial features get defined, dark circles under her eyes disappear, while eyes get focused and so intense that you can’t stop looking. And there she is – a woman so real and present as you have never seen before.
Color is not enough though. Even if it brings focus to the picture, helping us see her better, it still does not give us the ultimate answer as to who she really is. Dig deeper, look closer. Look at the way her hipline curves. See how delicate her hands are – it makes you wonder if rings small enough for her exist. Notice sharp jawline when she turns her head and cat smile when she thinks no one pays attention. Can you recognize the pattern yet and the image archetype behind it? You are one step closer to the truth about her.
However, color and line do not reveal their full potential unless one more thing is added to the picture. Two women of the same coloring and figure will never look the same. Even when they share Season and Archetype, they have different personal considerations. Their dreams and inspirations are what separate them, as well as their lifestyles, jobs and places they live in. They have different preferences which influence their choices – pants vs skirts, flats vs high heels and so on. All those individual conditions impact the way they interpret their colors and lines to communicate to the world who they are.
Sci\ART Personal Color Analysis and Archetypal Personal Image Analysis are among the best gifts I have ever given to myself. There has not been a single day I regretted the money spent or time invested. I only regret not knowing then what I know now: how to quickly and effectively combine all the insights about colors and lines to sky rocket my visual potential, my confidence and my self-esteem. For a few months I wondered how to translate all the recommendations I received into coherent and authentic personal style. I searched, I questioned, I read…
Now I have the answer – and I am not going to keep the secret to myself. I wish every woman could feel beautiful, strong and confident in her own skin. I know from my own experience that commitment and consistent strategy are enough to achieve it. Strategy meaning an approach that is comprehensive, long term and intentional.
