Why do I need PCA?​

What is Personal Color Analysis?​

PCA is a process of comparing various colors (drapes) on you to determine your personal color tone. The system is based in the science of color and human vision. This 12-tone system, created by Kathryn Kalisz, builds and expands upon the traditional 4-seasonal approach of the 1980’s. Kathryn’s brilliance as a master colorist led her to discover that over two-thirds of the population are more neutral in skin tone, neither totally warm, nor totally cool. She created the 12 seasonal tones approach from Albert Munsell’s 3-Dimensional system that classifies colors by Hue, Value, and Chroma – the 3 components of how we perceive color.

Once you know your seasonal tone, you will know what colors to wear to look your best and enhance your natural coloring, appear more vibrant, and feel more confident

Now, more than ever, the importance of knowing and wearing your best colors is not just to look and feel your best, but to also shop wisely and make every penny count. You will shop with new confidence, no more wardrobe mistakes hanging in your closet or stashed in your makeup drawer.

What will happen

at my personal color analysis appointment with Tracy?

Your appointment will start with a mini-science 101 informational introduction to color and its visual effects, which is the premise on which color analysis is performed. You will be seated comfortably in front of a mirror with me standing behind you in order for both of us to be able to observe the visual effects of each color. A series over 40 test drapes will be placed across your chest under your chin to determine your color tone. For women, once the analysis is complete and your personal color tone is determined, you will receive a cosmetic makeover in colors that coordinate with your personal coloring.

Can I wear my glasses or contact lenses?

Glasses are usually removed; however, we can work around them if necessary. Contacts are fine if they are clear. If you have tinted lenses, let me know, as we use eye color effects during the analysis. These should be removed if at all possible.

What will I receive?

You will receive a “Personal Book of Color” which contains 65 of your very best colors. I will show you how to “harmonize” your palette to find the hundreds of colors in your seasonal range that may not be on the actual color fan. The color fan is worth $85 and is included as part of your PCA.

How long does a PCA take?

The session is, on average, about 3 hours.

Will a tan affect my result?

Please shield your face from the sun for a month prior to your PCA. Using sunscreen won’t keep the skin from tanning, so no sun is optimal.

Do you take photos?

Sometimes. Your photos will not be shared on public media without your consent. I may take “before” and “after” photos. The “after” photo will be taken in your seasonal cosmetics and drapes.

Do I have to remove my makeup?

Yes. Please arrive at the appointment without makeup if at all possible. PLEASE NOTE: No foundation, tinted powders or MOISTURIZERS, skin serums, or eye liners, brow liners, mascara, lip gloss/balm, etc. Naked face! Applying moisturizer on the day of your appointment will cause light reflection on the face, which is one of the optical effects we use to do determine which drape is better.

How much does it cost?

PCA Fees $325 (up to 3 hours)
Appointments are to be paid for via Venmo in advance.
Additional time can be purchased for switching clothing or makeup items above the time limit listed for $25/hour.

COVID Protocols

In order to keep everyone as safe as possible:


1. All hard/flat surfaces in the studio are disinfected between clients.

2. I will wear a mask at the client’s request (I am vaccinated).

3. Clients can wear a mask during the intro and after the reveal if they desire but not during the draping and makeup application portion.

4. I will use hand sanitizer periodically throughout the appointment.

What if I told you…

that you only really need 3 eye shadows, 3 blushes, and 3 lipsticks to go with all the colors in your palette? And you would be saving not only money, but also time shopping and storage space in the house and your purse. If you are a makeup junkie like me, you’ll enjoy adding more great options to your collection, knowing that you are picking winners every time!

If you are a man…

who wear suits for business, you know how much a good suit costs; so why not make sure they are in colors that enhance your presence and portray confidence, along with looking dashing? Even if suits are not your thing, you will look great everyday no matter what the situation: business, social, or just relaxing at home.
