You have 8 basic colors. Here’s what they are.
And here’s how to find them.
THE 5 THAT EXPRESS WHO YOU ARE
Essence: Your vulnerable color, your version of white, a skin tone that harmonizes the colors in the palm of your hand
Romantic: Your passion color, your version of red found by gently pinching a fingertip—or the color of when you blush
Dramatic: Your “look at me” color, your version of blue, found in the color of the veins in your wrist
Energy: The color that supports you when you need a pick me up, taken from the darkest part of your iris (but not the ring around the iris)
Tranquil: Your peaceful color, taken from the lightest part of your iris
3 NEUTRAL BASE COLORS
First base, formal, your version of black, taken from the ring around your iris
Second base, less formal but still serious, your version of brown, taken from the darkest part of your hair
[tips in the book for where else to look if you color your hair]
Third base, casual, your version of khaki, taken from the lightest part of your hair (tips in the book for where else to look if you color your hair)
This has inspired me to take a closer look at my eye and see if I can't find my best tranquil and energy colours. I know that my best dramatic colour is True Autumns warm teal shade. My romantic colour is a warm coral and I'm still working on figuring out my essence colour. With the 3 neutral colours, my first base colour is TA's deep grey shade, my second base colour is a medium to dark golden brown and my third base is a warm 'golden' toned khaki.
What I'm having a bit of a difficult time with is discovering my Energy colour, which is supposed to be the 'darkest part of your iris' but NOT the ring around the iris - perhaps you can help me figure it out - check out the following pics - I'd love to hear what you think:
I'm thinking that my energy shade might be a warm grey-green??? And my tranquil colour is a warm amber, light golden brown/honey shade?
