We have just arrived back in Scarborough exhausted. I just wanted to say a big thank you for your patience and professionalism over the last two days during my ‘complete makeover’. I hope you have not had to lay down in a dark room to recover!! ( I didn't Margaret was lovely!)
I loved the experience and feel like ‘a woman possessed’ and with more confidence, now wanting to make some real changes.
I cannot recommend your service enough, everyone should have a go and travelling to see you was really worth it.
The Bravissimo visit first thing this morning was a real shocker, I went in as a 38D and came out a 34E, I don’t mind if you congratulate yourself, it was worth it. My bust is now under my chin and I feel great!
On behalf of the Ladies Group I want to say a massive thank you for coming along and talking to us about "colour. style and fashion trends" at our Birthday Event last night. Everyone I spoke to had really enjoyed the evening and I hope you get lots of feedback. Looking fabulous - you were a great advertisement for your subject and your presentation skills are without doubt some of the best I have seen or heard. So very many thanks once again and every good wish for the future.
The Grove Ladies Group.
"After having lost a couple of stone over 2-3 years and
not having bought many summer clothes last year as the
weather was so awful, I found myself with virtually
nothing to wear that fitted me this summer!
I have known Louise for a few years now so I asked her to
take me personal shopping. Virtually everything that she
pre-chose for me on her initial recke suited me. I bought
a few fab wardrobe staples as well as a couple of funky
"of the moment" pieces and I have received so many
compliments about my clothes both from colleagues and
pals. Let Louise take you shopping- I'm sure you will not
regret it :0)
Thanks you Louise"
Mens colour analysis....
A thoroughly enjoyableand informative session with Louise. She really opened my eyes with respect to complimentary colours for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending the same to my male colleagues and friends.
'Louise's analysis of my colours was professional and thorough, and I loved my new make-up look! With Louise's help I've found colours I never expected to suit me which really do, and the confidence to weed out the colours from my wardrobe that I really shouldn't be wearing. It was also good to know that many colours I do wear and like do suit me! I've been shopping since, and found it so much more enjoyable - instead of being overwhelmed by the choice, I can focus in on my colours and mix and match them to make some really flattering combinations. In the long run I think having my colours done will save me a fortune, and I'd highly recommend Louise's service to anyone! I have even bought a consultation for my mum as a present.'
I visited Louise for a style consultation as I had never been confident about my body shape or the best way to dress it. She was fantastic and pointed out to me all the best bits of my body I had never focused on, this really boosted my confidence! She also showed me to great ways to 'mask' those parts of my figure I had issues with. Not only that but I learned some really effective ways to accessorise my look. If you have any qualms about having this consultation let me tell you it is worth it - I left feeling like a new woman and actually felt excited about dressing my body again!
I also followed it up with a wardrobe sort a few months later which was a complete eye opener. I did not realise how many wearable clothes I had. I expected to feel the need to go shopping after my session but in fact I felt like I didn't need nor want to other than to get a few pieces that Louise had identified were key missing items. We photographed each outfit she put together so I had a record - it was great! She also altered 10 items for me that were too big and now I am a happy and very confident dresser!
'Although I felt fairly confident about the styles of clothes that suit me, I didn't really know which colours to go for and often chose black! Louise's consultation showed me that I should avoid wearing black near my face and she suggested better alternative dark colours to use for suits for work. I loved finding out that some shades of red and orange were really flattering, as these were colours I had avoided. When I go clothes shopping, I don't really waste time now as I have a clear of what I'm looking for, which is a really satisfying feeling - I thoroughly recommend a colour consultation with Louise!'
'I agree with Vicki's comments above and was a sucker for black!!!! But following a thorough colour consultation with Louise I have grown in confidence and am far more aware of which colours suit me. I take my colour wallet with me everywhere, even when I went on holiday to Spain. Louise made me feel relaxed through out the whole session which was so much fun. The makeup made me feel fabulous, is great quality and I especially love the eye base and shadows. Everyone should have a colour consultation - my hubby has even had one!'
I have attended every Seasonal update Louise has ran since I had my colour and style sessions. I love keeping abreast of what is happening in fashion. These sessions help me choose the right new clothes each season without the pain of trawling the shops to find out what is hot and what is not! The fact she covers which colours and styles are best for me each time makes my hectic life so much easier! I have also had my wardrobe weeded by her - what a brilliant experience...
The style consultation is a real therapy session, if you have any body issues I suggest you book in now!
'When I had my colours done by Louise I found her to be really friendly and confident which instantly put me at ease, so I sat back and really enjoyed my pampering experience! She showed me some fabulous colours that I can wear and also demonstrated that I don't have to rely on black, which doesn't actually suit me. I also loved what she did with my make-up.I have quite hooded eyes but the way she applied my eyeshadow opened them up alot, she clearly explained how I could recreate the look myself too. I left feeling great and happy in the knowledge that whatever I buy from now on is going to make me look fabulous!'
'I had a wardrobe full of clothes but was never able to find anything to wear, that is until my consultation with Louise. I was amazed to see how flattering some colours were and just how much 'rubbish' I had - the Charity Shop did well !!! Off white looked wonderful in comparison to white and I am now aware soft shades rather than bright tones I was attracted to suit me best. Armed with my colour wallet I can now go into shops with confidence disreguarding many rails going directly to what I know suits me, saving lots of time.
I have never used make up other than lipstick. Louise used colours which were so natural looking I was delighted with the effect. She showed me how big my eyes could look with some eye base and eyebrow pencil. Its so simple I can do it with ease. Altogether a wonderful experience.'
Make-up Manual Workshop
Thanks to you Louise for a fantastic morning and for making us feel welcome. I really learnt a lot, especially about where to apply blusher and yes the eyeliner is wonderful - no more boring brown or black for me! I went to Boots Saturday afternoon and bought some new make up brushes and a pack of those sponge wedges.
It was a super way to try out a new look and colours, which can sometimes result in costly mistakes at the cosmetics counter. The book is really informative and user friendly and a great addition to the other Colour Me Beautiful publications.
I just wanted to thank you for my style consultation yesterday. I learned - and laughed! - way more than I expected to. It was such a revelation and I really enjoyed it. I've been out today and bought 3 pairs of trousers, and not a tent amongst them!
Hope to come back again for further learning in the not-too-distant.
