In 1983, I was certified in the basic four seasons of color analysis with Beauty For All Seasons. Then in 1989 they offered the training on the Color Alliance Color System. I finally found where I belonged in my colors. I was a Contrasting Panache Autumn. Norma Virgin had designed this system of color, because many of us consultants were asking for more. We wanted and needed more palettes because not everyone was fitting neatly into the basic four seasons.
You see, I was someone who needed the citrus colors over the golds and mustards so neither the basic spring or autumn palettes were exactly right for me. When I received my Color Alliance Lifestyle color palette, I was in love with the Color Alliance system of color from that point on. I did not have to look back once because I was sold on the individuality of this palette that was fine-tuned to the hue, value, and chroma of my skin, hair, and eye color. The Lifestyle Palette was just the best! I had finally said "Yes, this is me!"
