Long Distance Color Consultation

You don't have to travel to St. Louis for a personal Color Consultation

We can work across the miles using quality digital photographs. Here's how ...

For a long-distance color consultation, you email the following selection of photos, being sure they represent your coloring consistently and accurately.  They don’t have to be professional photos – just clear and accurate color.

  • Front photo of your face
  • Front photo of torso and face
  • Very close-up photo of eyes
  • Very close-up photo of hair around your face
  • Profile photo of head/face

Minimal makeup is OK if that’s what you typically wear, but nothing bold or extreme and no heavy color-changing foundation. Photos should be taken in indirect natural light – outdoors or by a window – and ideally against a neutral background like a fence or the side of your house. Morning light is best for color accuracy.  Don’t stand right next to trees or plants; their green color can distort the photo.

Include your name and contact information in the email, and complete the purchase through the shop by credit card.  You'll typically receive your Color Fan and workbook within about 10 days.  After it arrives you can join a small-group ZOOM class with even more detail about how to interpret and implement the information.


Here’s what Susan shared about her long-distance color consultation

I absolutely love my colors. I can see that all of them are perfect for me.  The reds I’d been wearing were very bright. I’d never worm a muted red like the ones you recommended but I’ve purchased some lipstick and polish colors in my new reds and love them!


You nailed my colors so perfectly. I already have clothes in some of them, but also had lots of black and bright white. Now I see clearly how much better the gray tones and pearl-white are for me. I feel pretty when I wear my new colors and get so many compliments —  not so much on what I’m wearing but how nice I look and how young I look for my age. I wish I had my color information a long time ago. It is a smart investment because it will keep me from making mistaken purchases in the future.


What you do is so great, especially for mature gals who need all the help we can get. The long-distance color service is perfect for women who can’t travel to St. Louis to work with you in person. This service plus your book and DVD have done so much to help me look better and feel better about myself.
