A Beauty Giveaway!

Building a capsule wardrobe consists of paring down but at the same time improving the quality and life span of the clothes in your closet. And one of the key pieces of information that each person should know is what their color palette is that would best flatter their skin tone and hair color.

While I’m not expert, I do know what works best for myself and the basics for advising others, but when Yelena from the blog/website Glam Things offered to share her advice and expertise with one lucky reader on how to determine their own color palette, I thought it would blend beautifully into the goal of building a wardrobe and overall look that enhances one’s confidence and beauty.

As a certified color analyst and image consultant, Yelena will gather specific details from the lucky winner (via photos you provide) and in return the winner will receive the following:

  1. Discovering Your Season File~ where I explain WHY I believe that you are that certain Season.

  2. Your Individual Color Palette with 30 of your best colors.

  3. Manual~ Description of your season. From this Manual you will learn:

  • how to wear your colors
  • your best neutrals
  • how to wear black
  • your color combinations
  • make up
  • hair
  • glasses
  • your level of contrast
  • fabrics
  • prints
  • jewelry
  • accessories
  • perfume
  • your best styles
  • what mistakes to avoid
  • personality characteristics
  • looks
  • celebrities

At a value of $59, all of her professional advice is free to the selected winner (winner will be announced Friday November 9th in the newsletter).


1. Sign up for a Free 5 day e-course Successful Color Combinations Fast!” offered on Glam Things – click here to register.

    As a hairstylist we are taught to wear black, so as not to take away from the person in the chair. Black is not my color, and would like some spunk in my attire. The rainbow has no black so bring on the sun!! lwiederspan@yahoo.com

  54. This is such a lovely opportunity and I would love to have the chance to discover more about myself 🙂
