Sparkle and you ….


So much love sparkle and sequins this year, after all ‘tis the season to be jolly but what’s the best colour sparkle for you ...


Give yourself a glow this holiday season with a few of my basic tips to choosing and wearing sparkle and sequins:

  • Consider your skin tone when choosing your shade of sparkle or sequin.

  • Although they are reflective and on the whole flattering it’s good learn which shade is most flattering for you (because some will be way better than others).

  • Silver works best for those with a cool skin undertone (look for blue veins - blue/pink undertone) and those with a neutral skin undertone too (harder to distinguish between blue and green veins)

  • Gold works best for those with a warm skin undertone (yellow/ gold or bronze undertone - look for green veins) and also again on neutral skin tone

  • Beware - black can drain a warm skin tone and highlight dark shadows and wrinkles - if so wear black directly away from the face and amp up with the make up.

  • Rose gold however looks great on nearly all skin tones. So it’s a winner too if you are unsure of your skintone.

  • A gorgeous glitzy jacket or blazer can be worn over t shirts, sweats and more glamorous tops too add a little sparkle to any outfit

  • Using Sparkle in just one area will divert the area to that area – use it to enhance!

  • Use metallic, sequin, glitter shoes, handbag or a statement sparkle necklace to glam up an outfit!

  • Use contrasting fabrics such as pleather, leather, denim or velvet with sparkle to give it a luxe feel or to dress it down

  • Finally sequins aren’t just for Xmas - they look great all year!

Knowing which colours work best for you makes shopping so much easier. It saves time and money plus you have a wardrobe that mixes and matches together too.
