5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the cover 26 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When this arrived in the post I chastised myself for buying yet another beauty book on a whim. But, I was pleasantly surprised.
I've tried to figure what "season" colouring I am before, but none seemed to fit. This book is different. There are six colour groups (light, deep, warm, cool, clear, soft), all with two further sub-categories. Each category has clearly laid out palette of 30 colours to suit your complexion, with 12 further shades in your subcategory, a guide for choosing make-up & a brief demonstration on putting it all together.
I also like that the models they use though out the book are ordinary women you'd meet on the street.
The second half of the book has an excellent guide on dressing for your body shape (I've bought Gok Wan's book, but this one chapter is far better), a guide to finding your style personality (creative, dramatic, romantic, classic, natural, city chic), making the most of your face shape & putting it all together.
An excellent guide for anyone who's unsure about what basic colours & styles suit them. Geared at a 30+ market I think, but I'm 25 & loved it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too complicated 2 Jun 2011
Firstly, what is a man doing reviewing a book entitled Colour Me Beautiful? Many years ago, before I was married, I paid for a Man's Image consultation and was "diagnosed" as being a Cool Summer. Actually I had been wearing all the wrong colours. Anyway I was impressed with the consultation and the lady's knowledge. However, some years later I attempted to contact her again and discovered she had become very disgruntled with Colour Me Beautiful and had moved on to "better things" hence they put me in touch with another of their consultants nearer my home. I booked a revision with her and she stated that I had never been a Cool Summer but instead a Cool Winter!
After meeting my wife I suggested she have a consultation but instead we decided to buy this book. I then discovered that Colour Me Beautiful have changed their system and now include such characteristics as "soft, pale, clear, muted etc. etc." making it more confusing than ever. Another problem is that, in my copy of the book, many of the colours seem not to have printed well. For example, I still have my swatches from my consultations and the colours frequently differ from those printed in the book. Therefore, as most people have commented, I would recommend investing in a consultation with a suitable Company rather than relying on this book. Its main use would be as a revision guide if you have already had a professional consultation.
Most ladies seem far more intuitive than men when it comes to choosing the right colours and styles of clothes to wear although, of course, glaring mistakes can often be seen along any High Street. Another idea to make a consultation cheaper is to book as a group. Admittedly you would receive less one-to-one time but at least you would determine your colour Season. Only afterwards would I suggest buying this book. Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing ! 13 Dec 2011
By Blodwen
This book was recommended to me and I was a bit sceptical at first . Not for long ! It has given me assurance that I was already doing things right albeit unknown!! But has now given me new options and confidence to try new things . I have also started to be ruthless with clothes I don't wear or need ! Favourite : if you are a different size and haven't worn it in a year you don't need it!
The illustrations and colour plates are realistic and it is an easy to read and understand book once you determine what type you are and the photos of women are a miixture of glamour and ' normal ' with illustrations you can recognise . It is a book I would recommend for most ages but certainly to older women in their 60's like myself who no longer have the money to spend on impulse purchases !! A good investment .

5.0 out of 5 stars New version of Colour Me Beautiful 27 Oct 2011
I read the 1980's version by Carole Jackson, but I was finding the content rather dated. This newer version gives a greater variety of colours to my palette and the make-up and accessory advice is much less dated. I discovered that instead of being a Winter with no other overtones, that I am "clear and cool", and many colours have moved into my palette, some of which I had felt almost guilty about using. So now I am no longer forced into bright turquoise when the middle aquas suit me much better...even almost warm aquas under other names ...those colours people have always complimented me on! So I recommend it as a cheap way of updating one's look. Also I rediscovered those lines that suit my curvy figure....not just straight skirts! Now I'm older I can't cinch in at the waist so much, so I needed some alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book! 27 Mar 2010
Anyone who is interested in style, fashion, color, and makeup will thoroughly enjoy this book! A follow-up to Color Me Confident, this book has been updated with new photos, illustrations, and new real-life women to illustrate the concepts. Fun celebrity examples are also shown. It is especially nice to see how fantastic the real life women models look when dressed in their best colors and fashion silhouettes. You'll enjoy being able to analyze yourself in terms of your best colors, best clothing for your body shape, makeup colors and hints, best hairstyle for your face shape, etc. There is an expanded section on how to wear black in the most flattering way. The authors have done a great job updating this book-you will LOVE it!
