Claire Bannister image consultant and personal stylist for Upminster, Brentwood & Shenfield

House of Colour Consultant based in Upminster, covering Brentwood, Upminster, Shenfield, Romford, Rainham and South Ockendon

Do you feel like YOU in your clothes or does your wardrobe leave you uninspired?


 Prior to my Colour & Style consultations, I possessed that wardrobe in desperate need of inspiration.  I always felt frumpy, lacked self-esteem and, despite having a successful career, hid behind my larger than life personality and constantly wore black! 

I was delighted (and a little scared) to discover that I am a Blue Spring and look fabulous in bright spring like colours I also learnt through my Style consultation that I need to feel glamourous in my clothes - that they need drape and to celebrate my curves...something I had hidden in baggy clothes all my life! I know that my style suits my body and my personality now...pretty liberating for me!

I now have a wardrobe of clothes in the right colours for my skin tone, that suit my body and my personality, which all mix and match perfectly.  I can honestly say I love every item in my wardrobe and they work hard for me! I have always struggled with my weight but knowing how to dress my body correctly just helped me to look slimmer and feel 'me'.

I have left a successful Corporate career in Financial Services, London to join House of Colour as a Consultant because I firmly believe the way we feel about ourselves has a massive impact on our careers and also how people perceive us. With this background I very clearly understand how dressing correctly for work and pleasure impacts on the impression people make of you.  

I believe I am one of the luckiest people in the world because my career now is so rewarding, especially seeing first-hand the positive impact of what I do has on my clients. I 'shine the light of my clients potential though Colour & Style'.  The potential is there, they sometimes have just lost or forgotten it!

I am  the House of Colour Number One consultant in the UK & Head of Training, which is something I am very proud.

I pride myself on providing the most amazing experience for my clients EVERYTIME they come for a class.  You will learn heaps, have alot of fun and be supported by me all the way.

Below are detailed my services but if you have any questions please do pick up the phone and I'll be happy to explain - Tel 0782 5698695. 

Personal Colour Analysis Classes

My Personal Colour Analysis consultation is a 2-3 hour service designed to discover and celebrate YOU. Using a sophisticated process and principles of colour science. I use a time-tested colour analysis process to discover your colour palette.  I will then match mineral powder and blusher to your colouring, and then help you find YOUR perfect lipsticks! This very personalised service is part of what we call the 90 Second Makeup miracle. The 1:1 price is £210 but we are currently offering a 'Bring a Bubble Buddy' scheme where you can bring a family member or friend and the price reduces to £180 per person.

Classes are on my Classes page but if any of these don't work for you please do call me on +44 782 5698695 or email me


Personal Style Classes

This is a game changer.

I will help you understand how to create a wardrobe that allows you to look your best every day. Using Carl Jung’s basic body archetypes, you will discover how your body architecture helps dictate what style of clothing will naturally look better on you. I will also take YOUR personality into account because authenticity is part of creating a wardrobe that reflects confidence, trustworthiness, authority and beauty for YOU.  Again Style classes are now 1:1 and can be done virtually or face to face. A light lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day and you leave with a personalised workbook.  


Price is £275 1:1 or £245 if you can bring a friend or family member.

I want to thank you for a wonderful few hours of discovery spent at your house the other day. You made me feel very welcome and put me at my ease.

The introduction to colour was very informative and then the adventure began... I was amazed to discover that I am a completely different season to what I had imagined and it was so thrilling to discover which colours suited me best and how to wear them.

Thank you for the lovely lunch and for being such good company. Thanks to your knowledge and professionalism, I feel equipped to transform my wardrobe and be the real me. Everyone should do this!
