Beautiful You and Color!

$25

with Candace Sanborn

Calendar Mar 2, 2021 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Learn to select clothing colors that flatter your eyes, hair, and skin coloring. Prior to class, you’ll send selfies of your face to the instructor so she can determine if you're warmer or cooler in coloring. You’ll watch your appearance change as the instructor virtually “drapes” different shades of colors over your photo. In addition to learning about your most flattering colors, you’ll receive general recommendations for eye shadows, blush, and lipsticks based on your coloring. Soon you’ll be rethinking the colors you wear – from clothes to jewelry, to makeup! Candace is the owner of Radiant Image and has 30 years of branding and marketing experience working with a variety of organizations throughout northern New England. Her mission is to apply her wealth of experience to people, particularly women, to increase their self-confidence by helping them feel great about their appearance and their ability to connect effectively with others. The class takes place on Zoom. No discounts.
