  • Hi, Imogen! I hope all is well. I wanted to ask you if this outfit (the black & teal-green) is medium contrast or medium high contrast? Here’s the outfit pic:

    Also- exactly what number shade does that green fall on your chart (like the 1-10 chart on your popular Ultimate 3 Step process guide)? I’ve been trying to learn how to differentiate between medium & light-med warm colors, but it’s been kinda challenging. Thanks for all the insightful content you have posted thus far!

      • Thank you!! This helped me determine I am medium contrast, and how to properly pair my colors+neutrals together. I do have one more question, if you don’t mind..

        I have unusual coloring in the sense that I have lighter eyes than most people with my skintone & hair color. The closest I can think of with a similar “coloring combo” is Tashi Rodriguez & Ruth Negga.. Sasha Lane comes to mind too. Zoe Kravitz eyes & hair at the darkest. Also my eye color is particularly similar to J.Lo & Mandy Moore in the sense that my eyes can look green, brown, clear grey, or midnight blue depending on what color is by my face. My question is… how do I create makeup looks that work with my skintone while also honoring or bringing out my eye color? (Instead of clashing with its undertones like I am currently experiencing… even if I have a warm toned lipstick/blush for my warm skin, it doesn’t always work for my soft eyes & hair). It’s a little frustrating because there’s already so few color resources on the internet for WOC, so no one really explain the nuances. And all the black hair & eyed women with my skintone never seem to have to worry about their eye color when creating look. I would greatly appreciate any help.. Thanks again, Imogen!

      • Hey again, Imogen. Sorry to have to bothered you with my second question that I posted last week. Well thanks again for your original answer!

  • Hello again Imogen! After watching the video I was wondering: Would pleated fabric like Issey Miyake’s “Pleats Please” be taking it too far when worn on wrinkled skin? I think his design is fantastic, and I hope I’ll soon have lost enough weight to fit a small top or something 😀
