I was greatly taken aback about a week ago when I saw another image consultant take to video to state that online colour analysis doesn’t work and that in-house colour analysis was the only way to get your colours done.
Initially I was mad 😡😡 but then I decided that attacking this woman’s viewpoint was not the way to go. As Michelle Obama is famous for saying, ‘When they go low, we go high’, so I didn’t retaliate and decided instead to write this blog post explaining what everyone ought to know about online colour analysis.
I have just had an online colour consultation done with Aileen and it was an absolute joy. She listened carefully to me and took me on a colour journey to help me understand my own colouring and why certain colours worked more than others. She gave me the confidence to trust my instincts and more knowledge to build upon. It was so nice to do something for myself, I never thought I would be the type of person to even consider doing something like this but meeting with Aileen previously made me realise that I am worth it. Highly recommend ❤️Lisa Barry
Online colour analysis has been around for a while but it hasn’t gone mainstream yet, which I am in the process of changing with my 5 Weeks To Online Colour Expert Program. Like all things that are new, there is some scepticism around whether it works or not. Happily I can say, it works beautifully for me and the image consultants I train. I have included a few testimonials here from delighted ladies just to drive the message home.
I recently attended a remote color me session with Aileen to identify what colors would best suit me. I’m a mother of 4 kids and have a demanding job so finding time to shop is a luxury I do not have, nor enjoy, so all my shopping is done online. I have found it a struggle to select clothes that I truly feel comfortable in, that reflects my personality and compliments my complexion. Aileen’s session was really enjoyable and very insightful! It also gave me reassurance that the colors I select are not too far off the mark but what I found most valuable is how to inject other colors in my color palette, that really pull an outfit together. This last mile really makes a difference and it’s something I will continue to put into practice! Looking forward to my next session with Aileen to help with style of clothes that reflect my personality! A million thanks Aileen for all your help! I really enjoyed the session and how you approach it in a very pragmatic way!Rosemarie Brennan
Getting your colours done is all about you and helping you find the colours that work for you, your lifestyle and your personality. Consultants can often get on the ‘wheel of steel’ about being right but this is of no use to you. I teach colour analysis so that my colour consultants work with you – You get their expert opinion but you also have a say. You know yourself best and your opinion has to be taken into consideration.
On Saturday I was surpised by my dear friend with an online colour analysis. It was by @aileenlane_laneimageconsultingDorthe
This was a great experience and I learned a lot of new things about how to make the best of my own colours.
I am summer, would have counted my self more of a spring or autumn.
I will now try to experiment with some colours combinations that I have not tried out earlier. This will be so exciting.
Thank you Aileen and Trine for this great experience. I loved it 😍
I have had many clients over the years who previously had their colours done in-house with other colour consultants and they hated the colours they were given. This is a failure on the part of the consultant if you ask me. The role of the colour consultant is to work with you, not to give you a swatch of colours that you don’t love because they think they are right.
Thank you, Aileen. for an interesting and insightful online colour analysis session and the many practical tips.Maria
An online colour analysis will give you all the information you would get in an in-house consult. Much of the analysis is done offline by the colour consultant but the online consult is absolutely imperative to get your input. This has been the step missing in older versions of online colour analysis.
Thank you Aileen for my Online Colour Analysis. It was really great to be able to have this appointment in the comfort of my own home. I was really surprised to discover my season and Aileen helped explain it all to me very well, with lots of goods ideas & suggestions, so I can start to build my wardrobe around colours that not only suit me but my style. Her support after the appointment has been fantastic as well. Thank you so much!Kelly Steffensen
Often times image consultants ask me what apps I use for online colour analysis – The answer is none. There are no reliable apps that I know that can predict the correct colours consistently so we use the same information as we do in an in-house consult and we piece the information together to give you a full range of colours that make you feel and look gorgeous. We show you the colours that work in makeup, in accessories and how to build a wardrobe around the colours that make you look your best.
If you still have questions about online colour analysis, I am very happy to answer them. Online Colour Analysis is the future, so now is a probably a great time to get on board!
