Review:

'More Alive with Color' by Leatrice Eiseman explains how to be stylish by using a diverse palette. (Publishers Weekly)

Both books are based on Eiseman's three Colortime concepts: Sunrise, Sunlight and Sunset. Each is represented by a different palette, and derived by eye, hair and skin tones....Eiseman updated the trio of palettes for her second book with what she describes as more current shades and tones. (Daniela Gilbert, Women’s Wear Daily)

Find the right shade of a color you thought you could never wear. Believe it or not, there is a red for everyone as well as a green, a yellow and an orange. The trick is to find the hue for you, and to do that you need to understand the undertones in your skin, explained Leatrice Eiseman, author of More Alive With Color (Capital Books, $29.95). (Elizabeth Wellington, Philadelphia Inquirer)

Consumers are less intimidated by color than ever before, says author Leatrice Eiseman, also a Color Marketing Group member. She has written several books on color, including ‘More Alive With Color,’ being released next month by Capital Books. (Susan Hall, Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal)

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of More Alive With Color: ‘The biggest change is a calming down of color and more integration of neutrals, yarn dyes and garment washes,’ Eiseman says. ‘We're also seeing more white and off-white. The newer direction is softened. Times are tumultuous. So much is happening that we want our colors to be calmer and more muted.’ (Girlyswap.com)

Milk white is pretty much the standard white, says Leatrice Eiseman, author of "More Alive With Color," but there are dozens of other shades. Milk white likely stands out because it's a bright white. (Samantha Critchell, Associated Press – Asbury Park Press)

Leatrice Eiseman, author of More Alive with Color(Capital Books, 2006), said the CTA should choose hot pink, because it's more vibrant and attention-getting than the color's softer, more complacent shades. ‘That's going to make all the difference in the world,’ she said. Indeed, the vibrancy of such shades of pink has made the color appealing to both men and women, Eiseman said. (Chicago Tribune)

The warm golds of the current fashion season fit nicely into what color expert Leatrice Eiseman, calls the ‘sunset’ color palette in her latest book, More Alive With Color (Capital Books; March 2006; $30). Eiseman organizes colors into palettes of morning, noon and night. The ‘earthy’ colors so popular now blend right into the ‘sunset.’“The elements of fire and earth underscore the sunset (p.m.) palette and speak of a mellowed, golden evening,” says Eiseman. “Warm tones prevail, as they light up your predominantly golden undertones. (Paramus (NJ) Post)

Using hair, eye and skin color as a guide, she designates categories such as sunrise, sunlight and sunset. Then she adds “crossover colors,” which she says are those most often found in nature and work well for accessories ... she addresses a wide range of issues including proper makeup, hair coloring, men’s business attire (subtle) and a personal quiz...And the most interesting chapter is about what your favorite color says about you. Green, for instance, implies stability, balance, a good listener and a tendency to gossip. (Kansas City Star)

...teaches readers how to discover what colors best complement them. It goes on to offer guides to designing makeup, clothes, even rooms and houses, all based on personal color choices.It mainly is intended for women, but it does have a chapter entitled ‘For Men Only’ that deals almost entirely with business clothes. (Dan Hays, Statesman Journal (Salem OR))
