Looking and feeling brighter this Summer is easy with tips from Colour Counsellor Jules Standish.Â
If you want to express your feminine side this Summer embrace pink, the colour of love, compassion and nurturing. Â Research shows that men love women in pink as apparently it dates back to the stone age when men associated pink with flesh! Wearing pink shows you are a kind, generous person who likes to please others, that you are romantic and enjoy being creative, especially with all things beautiful. Â Emotionally, pink will help you release old habits, let go of sadness and heartache and allow you to open up to being loved. Â
Pink also has beneficial properties psychologically and has been used in experiments in prisons to calm down inmates and lessen aggression in as little as 15 minutes! Â
Pink really came into fashion when pink ribbons became the symbol of Breast Cancer Awareness, empowering pink as a survival colour and chosen for its femininity and strength. Â To highlight the use of pink as a feminist colour today, there is a 100 000 strong group of women in India called the Gulabi (pink) Gang. Â All of the women wear bright pink saris and wield bamboo sticks in pursuit of justice, as domestic and sexual violence are commonplace in their rural area. Â They have stood up for their rights amongst their families and villages and are now bringing about system changes through direct action and confrontation. Â A powerful collaboration of pink!
Pick Your Pink: For pink based cool skin tones, choose icy pastel shades and hot magenta but if you have warm, golden based skin tones then the coral and salmon pink tones will suit you best. Combining pink with greens and blues will balance this glorious colour or try wearing it with the neutrals of white, grey or navy for a smarter look. Â Â
