3 Day Personal Colour Analysis Practical Training Course

Getting Ready

Congratulations on taking this step in signing up to do our classroom Personal Colour Analysis Practical training!

Please read through the following information carefully, to help you best prepare for your training!


Training starts at 9.30am, though it’s great if you can come 10-15 minutes earlier so you can grab a coffee and get settled in.  We normally finish around 5.30pm each afternoon.

Training Location

32 Owens St Doncaster East, Victoria, Australia

Getting Here

We are on a number of bus routes, if you need to plan your journey, we recommend you try the Public Transport Journey Planner.

Your Personal Colour Analysis Practical (1)

What to Bring

You will be provided with all your tools and manual at the start of your training.

We provide fruit, nuts and biscuits for morning and afternoon tea.  You are required to either bring your own lunch to eat here, or there are a number of cafes a short drive away from our location if you wish to go out to eat. We have microwave facilities for heating food if you wish.

What to wear:

If you are doing our Colour training, we advise that you wear neutral coloured clothing as it makes it much easier when you are draping your clients as you won’t be distracted by what you’re wearing in the mirror.

Book your Colour Clients

Please arrange people to be your practice ‘clients’ for colour draping. You will need a person for each of the times and days listed on the schedule (click on the red button below to access the Client Colour Draping Schedule).

Finding Colour Clients

Your models can expect to receive a professional personal colour analysis and will need to be available for 1-2 hours. During this time, they will help you practice draping and applying makeup, and they will learn about the colours that flatter them best! Please let your clients know that they do not need to be wearing makeup.

They will walk away with a mini business card colour swatch, and be welcome to purchase a full colour swatch if they wish, for only $50.

If you cannot find clients please let us know at least a week in advance and we will assist you in finding people for you to practice on.  We understand that those from overseas or interstate may not have a network here.

These are the words of one of our lovely practice clients who came and helped during one of our training courses.  As you can see, they love the experience, we find that putting it out on your email and your social media (Facebook is particularly effective) it can be quite easy to find people to have consultations.

Hi Imogen,
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for the last couple of days. It has been so lovely working with all the helpful, kind & sweet ladies. You have a great team of girls who have taught me so much about myself, my sense of style and my wardrobe needs. I feel invigorated, uplifted, excited and inspired by the experience and really benefited from it.
Thank you for thinking of me and for the opportunity.
