Discover the colors that make you sparkle and glow

Personal Color Analysis Consultant – Online and In-Person

Many people underestimate the power of color! As a personal color analysis consultant with over 30 years’ experience in the Boston area, I recognize that colors come in all varieties and understand how to unleash this power. There is no such thing as just one red — it could be bright, light, dark, muted, toasted, tinted, warm, or cool — whew!!!. Your most flattering colors will make you sparkle and glow — I hear this time and time again from clients who receive countless compliments once they start wearing colors from their personalized palette. Were you color analyzed before and are wondering if it’s time to do it again?
  • If you were color analyzed 20 or 30 years ago and now feel like the colors don’t work anymore, the timing is perfect to do it again. Your colors change over time especially as your hair color changes.
  • If you were color analyzed as a season, but you want something more personalized (I use over 2,000 colors to hand pick a palette just for you).
  • If you had your colors done before…several times…but in each case the personal color consultant told you something different and you’re left feeling totally confused!
  • If your hair color has changed that will automatically change the colors that look best on you.
Here’s what having your own personalized color palette will do for you:
  • You will feel beautiful in every color you wear. As Sue says, “When I wear colors that look good on me, I am totally amazed—it feels like I have come out of hiding and I am sparkling.”
  • You can make more outfits out of your wardrobe because the colors will mix and match so beautifully. Carol shares that, “It’s interesting how when you buy clothes in your colors that suddenly you can start mixing items you bought on separate occasions together. It’s incredible! Thank you.”
  • Shopping will be easier and much more productive! Deb can attest that that, “I love my palette and am having so much fun with it. I feel it’s much easier now to shop and pick out what to wear!”
  • You can stop relying on black so much. As Michelle shares, “Even my husband noticed and said – I really like not seeing you in black all the time.”
  • And so much more — please note your color analysis can be done very effectively either in-person OR online (see all the details below)!

“Color analysis is one of my favorite things I’ve ever done for myself! I have had so many ‘Aha!’ moments since I got the palette – some pleasant surprises as well as some of my hunches validated. Now that I can visualize this many different shades and tints of blue-green, I can understand why, in the past, some garments have ‘worked’ and others haven’t, when I perceived them to be the same color. Thank you!”

No two palettes are exactly the same. As a personal color analysis consultant, I create your distinctive palette based on your hair, skin and eye color as well as your personality. It’s a work of art just for you.

What you will receive with your Personal Color Analysis:

  • Total Image Consultants offers you the most comprehensive, individualized in-person or online color analysis consultation available.
  • During a 1-1/2 hr. consultation (if done in person), I identify 70-100 colors (from a total of well over 2,000 colors) using a special process that goes way beyond “What season are you?”
  • We’ll identify your best neutrals, whether you wear gold or silver best, determine how bright, light, dark or muted your colors need to be to make you glow and in doing this you’ll also learn which colors make you fade way or overpower you so you can avoid them.
  • You’ll know whether black is a good neutral for you since it can be harsh or overwhelming on some people. And, if it isn’t your best color, here’s a blog post I wrote about how to make it work better Your Personal Color Analysis–How to Make Black Work Better.
  • With your color analysis consultation, you will receive a customized color palette that fits neatly into your purse or glove compartment for those spur-of-the-moment shopping trips. You won’t believe how handy it is and how much it impacts the flavor of your wardrobe.
  • No more guessing at what colors work. With your personalized color palette you’ll know for sure! $359 (includes the $90+ handmade palette which you will receive in the mail 2 weeks after your consultation as well as a special report explaining exactly how to use your palette). As Alexa D. shares, “This (color analysis) was truly the best “service” I have ever received and, not to mention, was very life changing!”

Virtual Color Analysis

If you do not live close to the Boston area and want to have your color analysis done virtually, you are in luck. I do all online color consulting using very specific photos you send to me (I’ll send you directions for how to do this). Once we have identified the photo(s) I’ll use, we connect by Zoom for 10-15 minutes so I can meet you and get to know you a bit. And, of course, if you have any questions, please let me know. Here’s what Deb Napoli says about her color palette (done virtually):

“I received my color palette today and I was excited and nervous to open it! I am ABSOLUTELY in love with this and it was the best money I’ve ever spent! I can’t thank you enough.”

*See below what Wendy has to say about having her colors done virtually as well.


Directions for preparing for your Virtual Color Analysis

  • Use the link above to pay and set up the Zoom session for your online color analysis consultation. (If you don’t see a date/time that works, please let me know and we’ll find one.)
  • Very Important: I will need  a photo of you, close-up and in good lighting (like the photo below) prior to our Zoom meeting (I will email you specific directions on how to do this and what I need. Surprisingly, taking a photo in your car often brings the best results in terms of lighting and accurate colors–although avoid late afternoon because of the lowness of the sun). Be sure the colors of your hair, skin and eyes in the photo match those colors in real life. Be sure I can see your eye and teeth color clearly. This is the photo I will be using following our Zoom meeting to create your color palette.
  • Once we have a date I will email you a link to connect on Zoom on our scheduled date (so please watch your inbox carefully).
  • Can you wear makeup in the photo? You can wear eye makeup as long as it is natural colors. It’s best if you do not wear foundation unless you have rosacea or a lot of redness in your face. Then you can wear a very natural foundation to subdue the redness. I need to see the natural shade of pink/red in your cheeks and lips so please do not wear blush or liptstick although you are welcome to send me a second photo with you wearing blush and lipstick (so I can see how much color you wear).
  • At the scheduled time we will meet by Zoom to chat for a few minutes (it’s helpful to me to have a sense of your personality before I do your color analysis). 
  • I will create your color palette online at a separate time (generally within 3-4 days after our Zoom meeting).
  • You will receive your personalized palette by mail within about 2 weeks from when I do your color analysis. Please note that if you live out of the country there will most likely be an extra charge for postage.
  • Do you have questions about doing your color analysis virtually? Feel free to reach out to me here and I’ll be happy to help you: Virtual Color Analysis Questions

“I was a bit worried to receive a long distance color analysis from Ginger, because it was hard to trust that photos could be accurate enough for her to pick my colors. However, I’ve had experience with Ginger over the years and trust her excellence so much, and I really wanted my colors done. I have seen that on my own, sometimes I pick clothing that just isn’t quite right and then I feel like they drain the color from my face, and that feels awful. But, by myself, I kept choosing just a shade off, and not liking the results. So it was with some concern but also trust and hope that I ordered my analysis long distance.

They arrived and I love these colors! A huge range of subtle shades. I put them up against my face and instead of the color draining from my face, they pick up the best parts of me, and my face looks more alive. I had just bought a fun hat and it didn’t look quite right and I could clearly see from the colors Ginger chose that it was just a shade off, and that explained it.  These subtleties really make a difference, it’s obvious. And all of that from Walgreen printed photos. Amazing! Thank you so much Ginger!”


In-Person Color Analysis

I have limited spaces available for in-person color analysis which is done in my home studio. I still have modified Covid protocols in place, but they are easy. If you would like to do your color analysis in-person, please email me ( and I will send you the details as well as possible dates/times to meet. If you have questions, please let me know. The cost is the same as virtual color analysis — $359.

NOTE: If you don’t hear back from me within 24 hours it means I didn’t get it or my response went to your spam (or promotions) folder. Feel free to include your phone number so I can call or text you if I don’t hear back from you.

IMPORTANT: Before you set up your appointment (whether in-person or virtual/online) be sure you are happy with your hair color. Your color palette is based on your hair, skin and eye color and if you have your personal color analysis done and then you change your hair color, your palette colors might not look as good anymore.
