I just found out today that I actually have Color Me Beautiful consultants not too far away from where I live! I don't have a car and I don't drive so getting to anyone who does color draping has been an issue for me. I really, really, really want to have it done though!
I just found out that a mall that is not too far from where I live now has CMB consultants who will do color draping! Yay!
I have already had three virtual diagnoses done online, one by Lora Alexander who believes I am a Deep Autumn, and is also convinced that I suit very dark and strong Winter-ish colors. The jury is still out on that one as far as I am concerned.
I also got an opinion from a representative of an Australian image company online for free, and she believed that I am Light, Warm and "Dusky." Some of those colors seemed light years better than what Lora recommended, but some also seemed like they were perhaps too cool or too desaturated, and the recommended hair colors seemed too light.
Recently, I had a wonderful virtual analysis done by Lynda Tarantino of www.thatsyourcolor.com and she believes that I am Warm Autumn, which I think is probably the most correct of the three. In any case, everyone seems to agree that I'm warm. It just seems that people disagree over whether I'm a neutral blend leaning toward warm (Deep Autumn or Soft Autumn) or whether I am absolutely warm. There also seems to be disagreement over what level of contrast I actually suit.
I am really hoping that visiting a CMB consultant IRL and having real life draping done should put this issue to rest. I was just wondering though: has anyone here been draped by a Color Me Beautiful consultant in real life, and what did you think of the outcome? Were you satisfied with the season they assigned you and with your colors?
I'm pretty certain I'm a Warm Autumn as Lynda Tarantino said so I don't think my draping session should be difficult. I think I would just like to hear a CMB consultant confirm it.
