There are loads of training companies out there telling you that they offer the ‘only accurate method of colour analysis’. Utter rubbish!

Colour is totally subjective

There isn’t a single organisation on the planet that legislates on which colours are right and which are wrong. The only person who can tell you whether you’re right or wrong is your client!

The only accurate colour analysis is the one that provides the client with the result she is personally looking for – for where she is right now, who she is being, and who she would like to become.

This isn’t about you being right. It’s always, always about helping your client dress appropriately for every occasion to express who she wants the world to see so she can look and feel completely confident and get what she wants from and for her life.

But if ‘being right’ is more important to you than your client, then my colour analysis training is definitely not for you! However, if you’d really like to Stuff the system and Put the client first, then join us and become part of a movement to change the world with the fabulous gift of colour analysis, one client at a time!

Q: Kim, what’s the difference between this course, Fabulous Colour Analysis, and Colour Analysis Training in a Box?

A: I’m teaching ONE consultant in Colour Analysis Training in a Box. I am teaching a group of SIX consultants in the Fabulous Colour Analysis course. So the questions, perspectives, and conversations are completely different…

In Colour Analysis Training in a Box, you can watch Sue having her own full colour consultation. In the Fabulous Colour Analysis course:

  • you’ll watch practical, personal colour consultations for each of the 6 consultants from the UK, Cyprus, and Mexico
  • and on video 6, watch all six consultants analyse each other, using a variety of methods
  • demonstrating how to deal with the different nuances of Caucasian, Afro-Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Hispanic colouringthis alone would probably be worth you getting Fabulous Colour Analysis

Take a look

In this 16-minute clip from the Fabulous Colour Analysis course you will learn about:

Pioneering days
Learn about the pioneering days before professional drapes and swatches arrived on the scene.

Seasonal / Tonal approach
Why the tonal approach took over a decade to find its feet, and why seasonal analysis works for some consultants and is absolutely the wrong choice for others.

Client from hell
Why I would be the client from hell, plus the colour you should never paint a bedroom and why!

Every skin tone
An easy-to-learn method of colour analysis that works for every single skin tone and colour you’ll ever come across.

Your colour client

Our happy customers have a lot to say about the Fabulous Colour Analysis Course!

I am so thrilled I spent my money with you! It was such a relief to me that your work is completely focused on the client and flexible in application. Hallelujah! I had my colours done in the early 90s and it really changed the way I felt about myself in a good way. I did though, over the years, think surely we are more than a season and couldn’t really reconcile my mixed feelings about it all. When I went looking for a course I got turned off so many because they seemed so rigid and passé. I LOVE colour and I do a bit of coloured pencil art and have always wondered if I could be a personal colour consultant. Since leaving my last job I started a bit of direct sales in makeup as a hobby and thought it was about time to step into my love of colour. I took up your colour course first and then the style course and am making my way through both. I am absolutely loving it. The colour course feels quite natural for me. Some of the styling feels more challenging and I have so much to learn. I wanted to say I was so thrilled to see you talking about movement advice for clients in the style course. For me, it is SO powerful and an area so overlooked and not really understood by most people, except under a broad term of ‘body language’. So, thank you for your generous and pragmatic style as well as your informative courses. Since starting your courses I have felt completely affirmed and am committed to my own business now as an image consultant. Woot! New career! Once I get rolling, I would like to get some regular 1:1 mentoring with you. In the meantime, I’ll finish these courses and get onto certification.



Hi Kim, I signed up for your Fab Colour course last night and stayed up til 3 am watching part 1. Made me chuckle watching you with that colour me beautiful ‘the one that started it all’ book. Oh how many hours of my life quizzing that book and the personal style cmb book. Your references to Dallas and Dynasty – brilliant. You basically said in the first 30mins everything that was in my head for years. And I’ve looked at so many systems trying to figure out the differences and similarities. You are music to my ears. So happy I found you!



First I would like to say congrats for your amazing performance on the course. Second, I would love to say thanks for giving to us the opportunity to have 3 calls with you, for me it’s more than a treasure! Let me tell you that I’ve studied with others previously and it’s been very, very interesting to contrast the different ways and I’m enjoying and understanding too, that the more I know, the more I still have to learn so I would love to prepare some very important questions for you. I can’t lose this opportunity! Big besos from España and thank you again for everything!



I just completed Part 1 of Fab Colour (love it). I own an Ecommerce business that helps women health seekers find self-confidence via safe beauty products. I want to continue my color analysis training so I can offer the best service when it comes to helping my customers choose the best makeup colors, especially online. I would also love to offer full color analysis courses as an add-on service. I am very excited about all this!! Thanks so much Kim for making this possible.



Love this course Kim. I can watch on my iPad anywhere. Also I like the interaction in the group of ladies. I found this course answered a lot of my questions so many thanks for that. Found it amusing too!

Karen Standing


Just to let you know I’ve been getting on fabulously with your Fabulous Colour Analysis course that you recommended to me. The colour and business advice I have found truly useful and what you say about the client’s psychological aspect really rings true for me.



Thanks Kim! I’m thrilled to get started on this venture. Thank you for providing such thorough training materials. I feel much more confident about color analysis now after finishing your course!

Karen Power


Hi Kim, I recently purchased your online course Fabulous Colour Analysis and have learned so much after just the first day. Your no-nonsense attitude and sincere support are not only encouraging, but also inspiring. Now, I’d like to purchase some colour supplies.
