How often do you receive compliments like, “You look amazing”? Do you instead hear, “Wow! Great necklace” or “I like your dress!”? Do people notice YOU or do people notice your clothing?
If you aren’t feeling seen or wish that you would receive the compliments instead of your handbag, you need to study “Dressing Your Truth, Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile” by Carol Tuttle. Carol’s book and online Dressing Your Truth (DYT) experience are revolutionary in helping women discover who they really are and how to portray that to the world.
DYT suggests 4 Types of profiles in the Beauty Profiling system developed by Carol:
- Type 1- The bright, animated woman who says, “I have an idea…”
- Type 2- The subtle, soft woman who says, ” What do we need to know and do to make the idea possible?”
- Type 3- The rich, dynamic woman who says, “Let’s get to work and get it done!”
- Type 4- The bold, striking woman who says, “Here is how we can make it better, and here is how we can duplicate it.”
If you do not instantly recognize yourself in one specific type, do not worry. Every woman actually has all four types within her personality but there will be a dominate type. Carol shares many clues for figuring out which type you are in the book. Even more information is shared in the online course, including an analysis of your facial features. Carol told me in an interview that the team of experts can nearly always tell which type a woman is by studying her facial structure. She offered to have me send her a picture of myself so she could help me with my type since I’m simply not clear. I’m waiting to hear if it’s the type I suspect!
When determining your type, be prepared for some emotion to arise. Carol told me when they used to do live events that women would cry in denial over what type they were placed in. This may stem from suppressed feelings/personality from childhood or due to trama in life that changes a person. Carol wants you to try and remember how you were when you were 2,3 or 4. Don’t remember? Ask you parents or older siblings!
I told Carol, when I spoke with her, that I “cheated” and went to her website where she has accessories, makeup and skin care broken down into profile Type. I simply found the style of jewelry that I liked best and proclaimed that type to be mine! Carol cautioned me not to do that as my perception of what I like may be influenced by the culture, trends and comments I’ve received in the past. Her whole program is based on dressing in such a way that compliments the TRUE type that you are. It may be a struggle in the beginning to switch to a new style but her challenge is to try it for 30 days. She’s sure that once the true personality of a woman is granted permission (from self) to be seen, the woman will embrace her new look and feel more confident than ever.
By reading the book I could see that the Dressing Your Truth course is helpful to women in more ways than just how she looks. There is a new found confidence that carries into every area of life. Carol even mentioned that many women will lose weight once they start dressing their truth!
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the online Dress Your Truth course online. The book is the jumping point to the program but the online course is where it’s at! Filled with videos to guide you to dressing your Type, wearing your hair to compliment your Type and doing makeup. They offer monthly video meet-ups and plenty of support to helping women and men discover their true look. I’ll be reporting on my progress as I participate.
