Last year, I attended this workshop event called, “Color Me Beautiful” without knowing what it was about.
Well, I didn’t regret waking up so early that Saturday morning because the event was beautifully organized specific for women. The workshop covered so many things that I want to share with you:
1. Knowing the right color for you. I realized how important it was to know what is the right color suited for the color of your hair, eyes, skin tone of your face. Because it will make you buy the right color of clothes, accessories and make up.
We took this activity Gold and Silver and fortunately I was able to find in the internet the steps on how to do it. You can go to this link for the specific instruction for you to know your color -> http://www.thechicfashionista.com/gold-or-silver-color-analysis.html.
During the activity, I learned that my color palette is a Spring. And, I totally agree because these are the colors which really radiates my face and make me look more blooming even without make up.
2. Know your body shape. During this activity, we measured parts of our bodies to be able to identify the shape of our bodies. This way, we learned the right style of clothes we should be wearing to make us not just feel comfortable but also to feel and look good without putting much effort.
In the same site, there are information on how to know your body shape. It’s very helpful this way, you will not spend on clothes which will not suit your body. Here’s the link: http://www.thechicfashionista.com/body-shapes.html.
3. Know your face shape. This will also help you not just know the right style of clothes for you but also the right hair style and accessories.

I’ve also learned that we should not be scared of accessorizing as long as we know the right accessories. If I only I knew about all of these before, I wouldn’t have wasted my money on outfits and accessories which do not fit me. Since then, I’ve been very careful in choosing the color of clothes I buy.
However, how important we should look beautiful and presentable from the outside, to be more beautiful in the inside is the most important. All of these are worthless if we don’t radiate a beauty from inside that is pleasing to God. As God said, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
“Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” (1 Peter 3:3-4)
As you find what’s right for your color and shape, I hope that you also seek God to know what’s right for Him.
