How does your Season/Colours change as you age?
What happens when your hair goes grey?
What happens as your skin becomes lighter?
Do you start out as one Season and then change?
Can you Change from this Summer Palette …. to the opposite Winter Palette?
Or this Spring Palette…. to the opposite Autumn Palette?
The answer is NO.
The Skin undertone and Season you were born with is the one you will always have. The only issue would be if you had been incorrectly analyised in the first place. As colour analysis has evolved over the past twenty plus years or so – you may have been analyised, because of the limitations of the system/process at the time of your original analysis, incorrectly. This does not mean your season has changed – it just that the new systems are far more advanced in making a correct analysis.
With Colour by Dezine® you cannot be a mixture of two seasons – your colours are selected according to your personal SKIN, HAIR AND EYE COLOUR – this is what makes our system unique – Your personal palette of Colours is prepared personally for you! No Pre-made palettes – we have over 15,000 possible combinations of palettes in our system.
Changing your colour preferences (through the years) is normal – as sometimes as we age we may feel the need to leave certain (usually the brighter and darker) colours behind us, and stick with the softer colours in our personal palette. However, you can still use these brighter and darker colours for “Accents” to great effect! Just because you are getting a little older it is definitely not necessary to abandon your favorite Brights and Darks in your palette !
However, having said that … it is a fact that our skin tone does change as we age, but it does not change our season. Using the softer colours close to your skin will certainly flatter. As we age the level of contrast in our skintone, the softening of hair colour – with the reduction of pigmentation or going grey, and the depth of colour in our eyes and lips, does come into play.
With your Hair colour – be sure to lighten as you age – if you were very dark originally and now are going grey but wish to colour your hair do make sure you colour to a medium blonde to light brown. Winters and Summers can look stunning with Grey/White hair! With Warms (Spring and Autumns) will look younger if they keep their hair in with warm tones rather than going grey.
Need guidance? – the best way to be certain is to visit your consultant and have your colours reassessed – but there is no reason to abandon your favorites.

Fran – Beauty for You
Did you know that the colours that you are drawn to are an Interpretation for your Self Portrait – What is your favorite Colour?
The Colour you have chosen to represent you acknowledges your image strengths
Orange is the colour of form and design. Your energy is high, and as a warm colour, you are sometimes restless. Yet your competence and capabilities to organise are unmatched by any other colour.
An architect or engineer, a designer or marketer -you will find your niche in these professions. You are the greatest self-starter and motivator. To get the job done is your goal, for your energy always requires a direction.
You like form and structure around you because you are very conscious of design. No messy homes or offices for you, for they make you feel ‘down’. You flow straight as an arrow when focused.
Like the sun at dawn, you give purpose to all who know you! After all, aren’t you the resource fuel of life, the colour of fire, and the energy warmth of humankind?
For your identity colour you have chosen the flashiest and most dramatic of all colours.
Physical or emotional, ’very human’ is another name for you. You can be dynamic and direct but also generous. You, red, have a strong character and love to be active and competitive.
You are solid in knowing what you want, and usually win.
If a female, you have a tendency to react quickly and emotionally, not always objectively. As a male who chooses red, you like to be out in front, often in politics, for you enjoy accolades from others. Some people call you a gladiator, some call you a leader. As a leader, you have the ability and energy to move forward positively.
You are red, you are first, the Adam and Eve of society, the sexiest of all. You have strength, courage and conviction rights, as wanting equal justice for all.
YELLOW – Communicative, expressive, social, people-oriented.
You have selected yellow, the colour of the universal communicator. You love your mouth. Sometimes you talk too much, but the entire world listens to your sharing.
At times you’re happy, at times you’re funny, and you’re always good at sales. When you learn to listen, many see you as the great counsellor, as you are sought for your talents to advise. The Egyptians and Mayans worshipped you, the colour of the sun, for your power to sustain life.
You are bright and expressive and give warmth to many. You’re the life of the party, the best friend of man and the voice of the country. Be the shining light for others. Hold on to your personal energy though – it can be wasted, especially when your questions run away with you.
Purple or violet is the most intuitive of all colours. Like the amethyst, you are spiritual and thoughtful. Intuition is your name, for you are very gifted.
Sometimes you are shy and hiding like the violet, other times noble and regal as the ruler.
But always, you have high values for yourself and others. You prefer to look up rather than down. Because of your sensitivity, you have difficulty in trusting others completely.
Some call you spiritual others call you religious. Whatever you are called, your faith will always see you through. You have the gift of feeling; not only for yourself, but you can help others to find their way. Always listen to yourself, for you are truly a gem of grace.
BLUE – Intelligent, executive, responsible, self reliant.
You have chosen the colour that identifies as the wisest of all colours. You could be a judge, executive, or a business manager, for you enjoy decision-making.
Those with a blue personality are hopeless romantic, and unshakable idealists. They can’t stand the atrocities that happen in the world, so they turn instead to the hope and faith inside their hearts to keep them going.
You are very sensitive, but don’t let too many people see it. You are also very calm, and enjoy being around water, as this relaxes them more than anything else, You have deep connection to nature, and spend time outdoors whenever you feel imbalanced.
You have chosen the colour that identifies as the wisest of all colours. You could be a judge, executive, or a business manager, for you enjoy decision-making.
Your balance is your heart, so stay in touch with your feelings. They will guide you to the needs of yourself as well as to the sensitivity of others.
You have chosen the most loving of colours. Your heart and your emotions are your strength. As a light pastel, you are soft and gentle. Your weakness surfaces only when you know not how to close your heart. Yet when hot pink is your identity colour, you become as strong as a red.
You may find your vulnerabilities in not recognising your emotionally draining friends.
Mum or Dad of society are your claims to fame. Responsibility for others is your game. Because you are a combination of red and white, you energise others as the nurturer and rescuer.
Lover, sweetheart and rose, you assert love, the universal.
GREEN – Benevolent, humanistic, service-oriented, scientific.
As a green identity, you have the strongest interest in the healing arts. You are usually found serving and aiding others in humanistic ways.
Your compassion always surrounds the wanting, as well as those who are less fortunate than you. You have good perception and awareness about most things, but you don’t appreciate sudden surprises. You are too stable to have your boat unexpectedly rocked.
When your shade is a darker green, you love to be recognised for your superior mind, which enjoys details and balanced ledger sheets. Some call you a healer, yet some may call you a scientist. As a practitioner, your skills are unequalled, for you can usually see clearly into any situation. Health and balance are your goals, for you would like to discover life’s hidden secrets as well as return the earth and all its inhabitants to natural harmony.
The colour of the ocean, of the trees wet with rain, or the coolness of sparkling brooks—you flow with movement and self contained energy.
If you have chosen blue green (teal) for identity, others find you hopeful, optimistic, believing and trusting. You have more than enough faith and hope, for you trust yourself and others.
Professionally you’ll be found in the helping arts of the mind or spirit and often behind a podium.
Your contemporary acceptance in today’s colour world enable you as royalty hue to give faith to others. Not green, the healer, not blue, the intellectual; but a combination of the qualities of both, you are!
Some seek you for enlightenment, others for practical insight; for whoever seeks you, you offer inner calmness. Faith is your middle name.
You have identified as brown, the colour of the earth. You are supportive and stable like a rock.
Others see you as secure, some call you strength; you exhibit “lean on me” properties. You always bring everything into order, for you have the gift of inner security.
Honesty is your high virtue, as you have no time for exaggeration and frills. Your only vulnerability appears when you can’t express yourself. You like to be heard.
Similar to the farmer and earth guardian, you find your professions close to nature. You like working with your hands.
Secure, supportive and dexterous, you belong to the country. For you are the machine that helps grow—and the protector of the earth.
If you have identified as the colour black, you appear disciplined and protective of yourself. Black is powerful, black is mighty, but black can also be closed to light and openness. Sometimes black can be used for strength, sometimes for protection, but black can image a barrier between you and others.
You may not desire to share but to stay locked alone in your world. Yet, you can be the favourite outfit to go any place or can mix and match with any colour. You give a strong, authoritative image of yourself.
But if you’ve chosen black because of being despondent or down, open the door and let the sunshine in. Come to us for help! You might just find a rainbow waiting with a pot of love and rewards.
White is another achromatic that seeks to find other colours of the rainbow. When you choose it as your identity colour, you are probably going through a transition.
White is universal and abstract, a new idea without form. You are the ego, the individual, the wanderer, but forever alone. You have selected simplistic and pure colour, but one that reaches out for recognition.
Combined with red, mixed with blue, or as an additive to any colour you will change your hue. You search for your own truth, don’t escape your own abstraction.
Come out to play, join with others to make a colourful array. Some may call you a loner, but don’t be alone for you really desire a family and identity to belong to.

Feng Shui And Colour Psychology – Discovering The Meanings Of Colours
Everyone appreciates the benefits of beautiful, comfortable living environments; However, Feng Shui takes the approach that your surroundings affect not just your level of material comfort but also your physical and mental health, your relationships, and your worldly success.
Feng Shui (pronounced “fung shway”) examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in your living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow. Your personal energy flow affects how you think and act, which in turn affects how well you perform and succeed in your personal and professional life. Feng Shui affects you every moment of the day — whether you’re aware of it or not.
As you begin to discover more about Feng Shui, remember that you need to have an open mind and should use the methods that are most comfortable for your particular circumstances.
Colour is used as the basis for many theories and Feng Shui, colours affect the energy of rooms, your habitat and your clothes. Colours are one of the most essential and significant features of Feng Shui.
RED – Fame – Reputation – Red Fire – it is no surprise that in the colours of Feng Shui, Red is one of the most important colours – it is a symbol of joy, fun and happiness, the colour of the active action! Red has a fairly strong influence on the human body – as the spiritual and the physical realm.
Red is intense, represents the element of fire and is considered lucky. It is bold and daring. It should be avoided by people who are anxious or overactive and is certainly not a good colour in the bedroom for insomniacs. RED – a symbol of passion, the personification of courage, power, beauty and brightness. Red is the ideal colour if you wish to draw attention, but avoid red if you are nervous or self conscious – just add a little as an accessory – don’t overdo it. When wearing red – make sure it is “Your Personal Red” from your Colour by Dezine® Personal Colour Palette.
PINK – Marriage – Love – Relationships – Pink Earth The colour of sensitivity, of renovation, renewal. In the perception of some people, the colour Pink becomes a negative, sickly sweet. In Feng Shui pink is the colour of little girls, symbolizing their future tenderness and femininity, the ability to love. Pink has the ability to neutralize or completely inhabit aggression. Pink is the colour of Romance and fun. Wear Pink if you want to resolve a situation with a loved one, because it is soothing and helps dissolve feelings of anger.
WHITE – Children – Creativity – White – Metal – White is universal and is good for almost all people in varying degrees – pure white and Winter white for Winter Season ladies – Winter white for Summers, Cream for Springs, and more yellow cream for Autumn, White colour does not cause rejection. In many cultures white is a symbol of goodness, justice, purity, perfection and peace.
GREY – Helpful – People Travel – Silver/Grey Heaven – The colour of prudence, practicality, and mistrust. In principal, it is a neutral colour and shall not be a big symbolic load. This is – the colour of people who prefer not to stand out from the crowd, not assert itself too loudly, always staying in the shade. When wearing Grey – make sure you dress it up with one of your best colours.
BLACK – Career – Life Path – Black Water – Conveys authority and power, and promotes a sense of depth and strength wear Black if you need to command leadership or exude mystery. Black makes you stand apart from the crowd, so avoid wearing it when you need to be seen as an equal. Black is only flattering on a Winter season.
BLUE – Knowledge – Wisdom – Blue Mountain – Has the ability to balance, and calm the raging emotions. This colour acts as a cold shower, sobering and makes focus. Shades of blue cannot be called playful. They set up a working mood. This is why the blues are preferable to those premises that are intended for official meetings or serious work. Blue is the most popular colour – so be sure to wear your Personal Blue from your Palette to achieve the best results.
GREEN – Family – Green – Wood – Symbolizes nature and life itself. It is usually preferred by people who are not inclined to others’ influence, they are proud and ambitious. Green may be a symbol of healing. According to the theory of Feng Shui, green is the symbol of peace, cooperation and numerous progeny. Green has a calming effect on the person, recovers mental and physical balance, increasing self confidence and abilities. Be sure to use the correct tone of green from your Colour by Dezine® Personal Palette.
PURPLE – Wealth- Prosperity – Purple – Wind – With the most ancient times it was considered a symbol of power, authority and power. Despite the fact that the purple colour has a lot to do with red, their impact is different. Purple is associated with royalty and luxury. Wear purple clothes or accessories when you are in the midst of transition, want to attract new opportunities, or in a spiritual setting.
YELLOW – Health – Yellow Earth – The colour of the sun, it corresponds to the notions of a positive start and a good mood. Yellow is also the symbol of peach. In the system of Feng Shui yellow is a symbol of happiness, joy and inner harmony. The yellow colour is associate with mental activity and is essential for the implementation of the thought process and success in intellectual fields. In addition, has the ability to inspire optimism in people and good spirits. Be sure to choose the correct shade of Yellow from your Colour by Dezine® Personal Palette

I can certainly attest to this I have two lovely fur babies – Bichon Frise puppies both females, a mother and daughter. Bella (left) the mother had 6 puppies and Cindy (Right) was the pick of the litter …. the one with the most spunk who jumped out of the pen first! Who could resit these two beautiful puppies, so gentle in nature, well trained, do not bark unless you knock hard on the front door! Use the bell and there is no problem. Do not shed fur, they have wool, not fur. They make you go for regular walks, love unconditionally and require lots of cuddles… which is extremely calming to you. By the way, I strongly recommend you have two pets they are great company for each other – our two are always cuddled up together – check out below for more added benefits.
Welcome To The Wonderful World of Colour
You probably know that colour is the first thing we meet someone for the first time. But did you realise that we also make virtually instant judgments about a person’s status from the colours they are wearing. For instance, in medieval times, the lower classes weren’t allowed to wear the colours of the upper classes, or they were fined, sometimes up to a half year’s wages! The lower class had to wear the colours of the earth – brown and green tones, that came from dyeing cloth with things that were immediately to hand and were cheap – grass, soil even dung!
The most expensive dyes were brand-new colours at the time, particularly purple and red. These colours were kept for royalty and the bigwigs in the church. Just at one glance and everyone will know instantly they are in the presence of massively powerful individual.
This instant recognition of status still happens today – every single one of us makes judgments about other people based on what they’re wearing – how they present themselves.
What We Wear and Why – Is Totally Fascinating
Have you ever wondered why Colour is so important? Image a world without colour – colour impacts our personal and business lives – colour enriches our lives -Why? Colour is light reflected, without light there will be no colour. Colour communicates subconsciously. Do we sometimes take this powerful tool for granted?
Colour is a powerful tool; it is in our food, clothing and environment and is used constantly in advertising. The Psychology of Colour can really assist you in many ways – Colour can help you in communication with others – you have a powerful asst to use consciously.
Colour and Style is everything! How you present yourself is a very important part of who you are. Your first impression is vital to you and how you communicate with others. When you move into a room of strangers, they are judging you as much as you are judging them. Before you have even spoken a word to them, haven’t you reached a certain conclusions about them? How you use colour, tone and intensity personally and in your business? There are no good or bad colours – colours can be used positively or negatively. The Psychology of colour is a universal language.

When planning your wardrobe, Colour is the most important aspect to consider, to ensure you are choosing the colours that are going to compliment your own Personal Colouring. We have prepared your Top Wardrobe Colours for you. Plus, when you have the formula correct you will find that everything coordinates beautifully – I find when I purchase something new (from colours in my personal Colour by Dezine Colour palette), when I get home I find – Wow – it goes with so many things in my wardrobe because the correct basics are there!
YOUR PERSONAL SKIN COLOUR – What is your undertone? Are you a Warm or a Cool??The advantage of knowing what colours look best on you and what shades of makeup you can wear to enhance your own natural colour direction, choosing the right colours for your Skin Tone is an important part of the beauty process. Wearing the wrong tones in clothing or makeup can make even the healthiest skin look unwell.
COOL – you have a pinkish cast to your skin and lips. Your veins are more blue and green, and pronounced on your inner wrist. Because you are a Cool your makeup and Clothes colours need to be Blue based.
WARM – you have a Yellow greenish cast to your skin. Your veins are more Green than Blue on your inner wrist and they are deeper under the skin. You tend to freckle in the sun. Because you are Warm based your colours in makeup and clothes need to be Yellow based.
YOUR PERSONAL HAIR COLOUR – Your Personal Colour Season is determined by your “Natural Hair Colour” What was your hair colour as a teenager?
This is an important factor in determining your season. “Natural” means the colour of your hair when you were young – not what colour it is if it’s been artificially enhanced – colouring your hair does not change your season. When colouring, always stay within your seasonal palette for hair colours. Many make the mistake of putting Golden highlights in Cool hair colour, or ash into Warm hair colour. Also remember, as we age it is advisable to colour our hair lighter – not darker.
Be sure to Not to Add “Warm” colours to your Hair if you are a Cool or “Ash” colours if you are a Warm. Your Hair colour if “coloured , needs to harmonise with your natural colouring.
YOUR MAIN EYE COLOUR – When you wear your main eye colour, it immediately brightens your face and makes your eyes POP! The exception to this rule is if your eye colour happens not to be in your season. For example – I am a cool Winter and have Cool skin undertone, Cool Hair Colour and a Sage Green eye colour – therefore, I am 2 parts Cool and one part warm. If I wore my eye colour I would look very ill. If you hold your eye colour fabric up to your face you will soon see if it works for you or not.
YOUR WHITE – the Whites of your eyes. Most people do not have bright Whites and so the stark, bright White shirts and tops do not flatter. Have a look at the Whites of your eyes and see what White you see is it pure White, soft White, Grey White or even off White?
Winters suit pure White, Summers Winter White (soft off White) Spring – Soft Cream, Autumns Warm Cream. The wrong white will dull your eyes!!
YOUR BLACK – Yesterday, I spent time round the malls, and it is disappointing to see so much Black in the shops, you can walk in the door of a boutique and scan the racks and see only a touch of colour included in all the Black. What is this fixation with Black? – it can be so depressing!
We are all about Colour! It is uplifting, stimulating, draws people to you, and just makes you feel good and good to be around! Try and put less Black in your wardrobe – soften your look with NAVY!
Did you know that only Winters wear Black well? Summers Can Wear Charcoal, Springs and Autumns Green//Black or Brown/Black. But best of all Navy!
EVERY SEASON HAS A NAVY THAT SUITS THEIR COLOUR PALETTE – and yes, I know the old saying – Black is Slimming – but so is NAVY! and it is just that much softer reflection on the skin. I have put together a video for you to see the difference between Black and Navy – that I hope will encourage you seek out and find some great pieces by adding some Navy to your wardrobe.
Check out our Blog Post and Video on Black Verses Navy Debate – you will find it most enlightening http://beautyforyoublog.com/black-verses-navy-debate/
Your Reds – are some of the most flattering colours for all skin tones, providing they are the “Right Red”. We often hear people say I cannot wear Red – but the problem is that they have not selected their personal Red according to their personal colouring. Red is romantic, feminine, and also energetic and active. Your lip colour, blush and nail colour need to come from your own version of Red. Your Red is good for Causal wear, Dinner wear, Lingerie, accents and accessories. However, don’t wear red if giving a presentation if you are wanting feed back – it is far too dominant – also NEVER wear Red to a job interview!!
Your Blues – emphise your colouring through contrast. Deeper Blues are basic and can be mixed easily with brighter accent colours. Blues can be used in an entire outfit or as an accent. Blue is the most popular colour in the spectrum. Be sure to choose your correct Blue to flatter you personal colouring.
Your Purples – are quieting, cool and refined. They are elegant colours and can be used in an entire outfit or as an accent. If you are blonde, your Purples will intensify your hair colour. Cools look great in Purples. Warms have limited choice of Purple – they must be a warm tone Purple.
Your Blue-Greens, Greens, Teals – will be an exciting addition to your Colour Palette, since they emphise your skin tone colour. These colours will spotlight you and can be worn in an entire outfit or an accent. These are excellent colours for day or evening wear. Your personal palette will show your correct Green shade.
Your Metallics – blend with your wardrobe and can be used for jewellery and accessories. Rose Gold for Cools and Yellow Gold for Warms. Gold for Cools are only best when you have a warm eye colour. Silver is by far the best choice for Cools. Bronze is also great for warms.

Your skin needs to be hydrated, and night time is a great time to replenish the skin from the exposure and pollutants of the day – and allow your Beauty Products do their work while you sleep. That is why we call it “Beauty Sleep!”

Apply your moisturiser and allow to absorb prior to applying your Colour by Dezine BB Cream – What is a BB Cream?? BB (Beauty Balm) is an all-in-one moisturiser, primer, foundation and sun block and can be worn alone as a tinted moisturiser , or primer under foundation, and also under Mineral Foundation depending on the amount of coverage required. Part Skin Care, part makeup, 100% amazing! This lovely BB Cream is super hydrating protection with a sheer radiant coverage, provides a superior skin protection with a natural “No Make up” look. SPF 20. You can apply with Foundation brush or Latex Free Sponge. Colour by Dezine BB Cream ($72.90)
Not just on any blemishes, but under the eyes, try a dab of concealer on your eyelids (with your Latex Free Sponge), between your eyebrows, on any broken capillaries, underneath your nose and in the corners of your mouth. This will conceal redness and brighten your face in no time! Our Concealers are awesome – they just stay where you put – just pat on. ($37.85) Available in 3 shades.
Go easy on the powder – the key to the no – makeup makeup is being fresh faced – so putting on lots of powder will take away from that – however, our Mineral Powder is ideal, as you build the coverage you need – for this look – apply in the areas only you feel you need a little more coverage, or to take down too much shine. You will also have the added benefit of a SPF factor of 15 – 20 depending on how much you apply. Apply with Kabuki brush. Silky application that adheres to the skin giving you a spectular coverage without a “Powdered” look creating a flawless finish. Available in 3 Cool and 3 Warm Shades ($72.90 – Refills $46.90)
Brows are so important – it is like the “Picture Frame” to your eyes.. Applying our Brow Defining Powder with our Mini brush will give you a super effect – filling in any gaps, just apply in short feathery strokes to achieve a natural effect. (38.50) 5 Colours to choose from.
If you have eyebrows to tame – then the best choice is Brow Wax Splits – this compact gives you 1/2 wax and 1/2 brow defining powder. You just apply a little of the wax to the brows first to tame and then apply the powder – and WOW! All sorted. ($35.90)
We have a great choice for you when it comes to Blusher, shades are sorted into the Seasons, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn to make your selection easy. It comes in a handy Flip top compact. ($33.35). Or, the Blush Bouquets (Pictured Pink Carnation) in a larger compact which gives you a stunning swirl of colours, depending on your Season, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn ($58.00). The best tip for our No Makeup Makeup look is easy does it! – blend, blend, blend out the edges with your Mineral Powder.
For this look we need a Naked Palette – to use for your base all over the eyelid to create a Neutral eye all over the eyelid, using a shimmery nude colour on the lid we suggest for Summer: Pink Ice, Winter: Crush on You, Spring: Vanilla Ice, Autumn: Sugar Cane. Eye Shadows available in Flip Top Compact ($32.55) or handy refills that you can pop into our Refillable Magnetic Compacts that come in Mini ($29.90) and Large ($35.90) Refills ($17.50) – You choose your colours from a very wide selection that you will ♥

Or Eye Pencil Coco ($27.50). The Key Rule for makeup is that YOU MUST WEAR MASCARA if you wear eyeliner. Mascara ($36.90)
Though no-makeup makeup may not seem like the place for lipstick or gloss – but it is essential to finish this lovely look. Define your lipline- by adding a Neutral lipliner is a good start –
I recommend Cool: Pink Lady, Warm: Flesh ($27.50)
Then a light lipstick Cool: Pink Princess, Snob Appeal, Luna Rose, Gotcha – or for a completely nude look Intense Beige.
Warm: Simmering Peach, Dream Catcher, Intense Apricot, Oyster, Our lipsticks are super moisturising, super shiny and Paraben Free ($36.50). Lip Gloss Cool: Lilic Mist, Warm Peachy – Also we have Clear if you decide on just a sheer gloss ($28.50)
