The cosmetic makeover was a revelation, as was the colour session. I was lucky enough to have my sister surprise me with a styling session for my 40th birthday, something I had always wanted to do but as a busy Mum, working part time and also studying, I failed to prioritise the time. I found Amalia to be extremely informative and educated in her approach to our session. The cosmetic makeover was a revelation, as was the colour session. For years I had stuck to a “tried and tested” wardrobe and my make‐up skills were, shall we say, minimal. I now feel armed with information and knowledge that will assist me in making good, long term wardrobe decisions, based on my particular colour palette and also now appreciating how to accessorise correctly. Even the colour of my hair was scrutinised for appropriate length/colour. Amalia spent almost a whole afternoon with… Read more “Donnette”
I have had so many compliments from my family, friends and even people I hardly know on how great I am looking. As a mother of 2 young children, I felt that it was time to do something for me. I wanted to look and feel better about the way I looked. That was when I found Amalia. Amalia was so sincere and passionate about what she does. In the short amount of time I spent with Amalia, I left my consultation with the tools and confidence I needed to shop for the clothes and make-up to suit my personal skin tones. Not only that, but an understanding of the style of clothes that best suit my shape. My wardrobe had previously consisted of mainly black. Now I always go shopping with my colour samples that Amalia provided me with and now have a wardrobe full of wonderful colours. I… Read more “Heather”
Amalia has amazing fashion sense and knowledge along with great natural intuition about what looks good and what doesn’t. My afternoon with Amalia was inspirational! Amalia has amazing fashion sense and knowledge along with great natural intuition about what looks good and what doesn’t. I learnt so much about what make up to wear and what clothes suit my body shape and my colouring. I would recommend a consultation to anyone who wants to get out of their current “fashion slump” and develop their own sense style and confidence.
Dear Amalia I just want to express my sincere appreciation for the time you spent considering my wardrobe of clothes and helping me to discover what styles and colours suit me best. During the past years I have wasted my money on clothes which I have not worn much. I only wish I had your advice before now. You have helped to complement the good things about my shape and to emphasize them, rather than hide them under shapeless forms. I have altered some of the tops to suit my figure and they look much better. And I am looking forward to shopping with you so that we can find more suitable wear. Now that shop assistants are so rare it is important to have another opinion, and especially someone who knows how to do this so well.
Dear Amalia, thanks so much for the shopping trip the other evening. It was great to see, and try on the types of clothes I should be wearing – most of them I would have walked right past. I realise now that I have always shopped for the same boring types of clothes and I’ve found it difficult to start looking at different styles. The fashion world can seem so daunting and confusing. With 3 young children I rarely get time to browse and try things on, so now that I know what I’m aiming for, it’s so much easier and quicker and better! I can make the most of a short shopping trip. I can go shopping and know that I should be looking for skinny jeans, waistcoats, furry or chunky knitted ones especially, shorter tops, big necklaces and thick scarves. Now I love shopping and know exactly what… Read more “Donna”
On your wedding day you want to look fabulous but have those little practical extras that back that fabulousness up. The conversations we had had about colour and shape really influenced the direction myself and the designer took with the creation of my wedding dress. Knowing the most flattering neckline, hem length and how to show off my best features were great starting points for sketching designs and talking to the designer. Our practical discussions on finding the right foundation and blush to match my complexion gave me extra confidence on the day. Going shoe and handbag shopping with you was fantastic as you encouraged me to go with accessories which would really make the whole outfit tie together. On your wedding day you want to look fabulous but have those little practical extras that back that fabulousness up. I enjoyed the process of going through my wardrobe as a… Read more “Kelly”
Hi Amalia, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you, for your fantastic work in helping me know and understand my colours, what makes me look my best and there for feel my best and for making it such a positive experience. I am so glad that I found out about the colour seasons earlier rather than later. After having worn the colours that don’t help to make me look my best and changing that, I have had noticed a difference in how I feel about myself, and so many people notice the difference too, they comment that I look healthier and brighter and beautiful. I feel so much more confident in myself and it’s a wonderful feeling. I can confidently choose what to buy when I’m out shopping and just in picking out an outfit for the day has become easier, because I know that if… Read more “Jess”
I had the pleasure of discovering my “beautiful face” when Amalia shared her wealth of knowledge and passion for revealing people’s natural colour palettes. Since discovering that I am in fact a “winter” palette, when for most of my adult life (I’m 33) I had traditionally leant towards summer colours, I have experienced a kind of revelation – I can now celebrate my natural features by recognizing how a simple colour adjustment changes everything! I have always loved my eyes and my hair. Since my Beautiful Face consultation, I have retreated to more natural tones in my hair (so while remaining on-trend, I’m no longer getting lost underneath the “trendy” locks of fluorescent purple & pink highlights amongst blondes, coppers and blacks). My eyes not only shine brighter from a simple hair colour change – coupled with the simple move to more complementary colours in my clothing, I’ve experienced a… Read more “Jolene”
Dear Amalia, I just wanted to write to you to thank you for challenging, changing and refocusing my clothing wardrobe and my whole approach to colour! I didn’t appreciate the changes you have made in me until I was recently out shopping for an outfit and instead of looking at all the fashion in every store, at a scan of each shop, I was able to quickly identify if they carried clothing in “my” colours, shapes and styles and only try on those outfits. I saved so much time and angst in what would previously have been a very painful and arduous process. I found an outfit in record time (for me) and came away completely happy! I was really nervous about opening up my cupboards and having you “cleans” my wardrobe, but it was a completely positive eye opening experience! Learning why I get compliments every time I wear… Read more “Sarah”
Dear Amalia You have made a huge difference to my life. Not only do my clothes mix and match but each morning I find that I have choice when preparing to go to work. I no longer go to bed and wonder what will I wear tomorrow or wake up and wonder what will I wear today! There has been such a change in my clothing style and colours worn, that I have received many comments and have been able to pass onto them that I now have a `stylist`. On Good Friday after Church I went to a friend’s place after church for morning tea and met someone for the first time. When she met me, she said, oh I have noticed you, you are the one with the nice clothes! Also two people who I have always thought were very stylish, have commented on my new clothes and… Read more “Lesley”
