This is the second post where I am taking about my experience with Lauren from LFB Color. If you have no clue what I am talking about next, you can read the first post FIND OUT WHICH COLORS FLATTER YOU MOST WITH LFB COLOR #1 to get an idea. 😉 Anyway, in this post, I will focus on how the results of my color analysis have helped me in my personal life. By the way, because Lauren’s expertise, people flight to Houston for service!!
First, you can watch this short video I posted on my Instagram account to see how I have used my personal color swatches in my real life. 🙂
By the way, in this video, most of the cosmetics I used was from Elea Blake Cosmetics and they are hand-mixed, custom-made all-natural mineral makeup designed around my patrons. Like I said before, I already had some color knowledge before I went to see Lauren in Houston last month, but working with her has refreshed all my memories and I learned even more than I knew before. By the way, working with her was just like hanging out with my bestie! She is such a fun and nice person to be around. Anyway, below is how I feel the service and knowledge has benefited me.
1. Looking your best every single day!
People often ask how I manage to look so good every single day. Well, for one, I am constantly getting rid of not so flattering pieces in my wardrobe. This ensures that whatever I reach for each day is the best one for me. Any piece of clothing or accessories must be the perfect color, quality, fit and style in order to find a space in my closet. 😉 I know, I am a very picky person. I usually clean up my closet once a month. These color swatches have helped me dramatically to speed up this process. It doesn’t matter how pretty a piece is, or how good the quality is; if the color is wrong, it must go. I want to wear the right colors to look like I have a healthy glow, like I get right after a workout, not the type of colors that makes people want to ask you “Are you feeling ok?” Lol. I used the swatches to clean up my makeup product drawers too. Now, same as my closet, anything in my makeup area is the perfect fit for me.
2. Saving money on shopping!
How often do you get home and realize that you bought the wrong things for yourself? Or do you, like so many others, have a few pieces in your closet just hanging there season after season and year after year that you just don’t feel like wearing? I am always super careful with what I buy, but sometimes I still make mistakes. You know the lighting in a lot of store’s fitting rooms are kinda like a trap and trick us into buying more. Many times I look very pretty in a color in the fitting room, but after I wear it in real life, I realize the shade is just not right for me and makes me look washed out. Now with those color swatches, I can make sure that I am not going to buy the wrong shade anymore. I use these swatches when I order cosmetic products online as well. It has for sure decreased the percentage of times I bought wrong and how often I have to make a return. It just makes my life so much easier.
I took these color swatches with me on my Europe trip last month. With their help, I finally found the perfect shade of purple that I love and also looks good on me in Barcelona.
So now it comes down to the same question again, how much do you love yourself and trying to be the best version of yourself? I am constantly learning new knowledge to make my life better quality. I have to say, the service/knowledge I receive from Lauren from LFB Color, has brought my life to the next level.
You probably already noticed this pair of flare pants I wore in Europe. A lot of people have asked me where I got them. So here is the answer, I found them on Shopbop. It has a big season sale going on now, as you can see below. You can find the same one here. I definitely will go there to check it out since I have gotten so many great quality pieces there. 🙂
