Understanding what colours suit you is the underlying secret to getting your make-up and clothing right. Yes, there really are colours that suit you! Colours that draw out the right contrasts in your eye colour, your hair colour, your skin tone and so much more.
This is a deeply personal thing. You're an individual, with individual needs beyond just make-up. We owe it to you to treat you as an individual, which is why we're going to share with you three ways to help you find the colours that suit you.
It's best to see the real you face-to-face. That's why we highly recommend seeing a properly trained colour consultant. If you would like to know your nearest JFC agent please email us your postcode here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
We understand that sometimes there isn't a local agent or it isn't always possible for you to visit them, so we offer an online consultation service. Send us a photo (confidentially!) using this link and we'll send you a free lipstick in one of your best colours plus we'll email you with some personalised suggestions to try.
(Sorry, online consultation service not currently available)
Colours tend to fall into four main categories or "seasons". If you know which of these four categories you fall into, we can give our strongest recommendations - without knowing you individually.
There is a brightness in your colouring. Contrasting cool colours will work really well for you. You may have mid to dark colouring, but there will always be some contrast (a mix of light, dark and bright eyes) in your colouring. Soft colours will look washed out on you.
There is a softness in your colouring and so you will look good in softer colours. Blended, cool colours and subtle combinations of colours work really well for you. Bright contrasting colours will be too strong for your colouring. Your colouring may be dark or fair.
There is a brightness in your colouring. Bright warm colours will work really well for you, as you have a bright and fresh look. Soft colours will look a bit boring on you! You may have light to mid colouring.
