How do you know what your style is? Why is it important? What if I don't have a style? Where do I even start? I have so many different styles in my wardrobe, I'm confused... 
 
It is said we wear 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time. I have no idea who said it or even who made the statistic up but I reckon it’s pretty accurate amongst the women I come across as an Image and Colour Consultant. 
 
Quite often my clients have got a wardrobe stuffed full of clothes but only ever wear the same few items. Sound familiar? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s very easy to get stuck in a rut and to wear the same old clothes week in, week out. 
 
The other thing that happens is that you’ll maybe buy something while you’re out shopping just because it catches your eye. You get it home but then don’t know what to wear it with. It’s quite easy to end up with a wardrobe full of clothes this way but still feel like you have nothing to wear. 
 
 
How different do I look without the finishing touch of eyebrows that frame my face? I think without them I look a bit odd and unfinished. 
 
I also think my eyebrows are an indicator of my age if they are left au naturel. Why is this? You may also be in the same boat – many of us are.... 
 
Eyebrows have their own styles and follow trends in fashion -I have over plucked them in the past and they have just simply stopped growing. I get the odd stragglers that need plucking out but they are distinctly lacking in length. The outer third of my eyebrows just don’t grow any more. (Apparently, this can also be an indicator of thyroid issues – not in my case though.)  
 
Therefore, my pale insignificant eyebrows hark back to days when it was fashionable to have them relatively thin, this in turn gives away my age. Have a look around, there will be women with sparse over plucked eyebrows and they will probably be in their late 40’s and early 50’s. 
Do you know which colours to wear that will accentuate your eyes and enhance your natural colouring?.A top tip is to echo your eye colour in your make up if you want to be sure the colours suit you... 
 
As it's full on sale season I'm introducing you to my mate Bargain Bev...she’s a bugger for a ‘good deal’. She loves to shop in the sales and TK Maxx is one of her favourite shops.  
Step 5 is all about the finishing touches of accessories and make up.
