Carole Jackson, Color Me Beautiful (1980)

The most successful book on seasonal color analysis was Carole Jackson's Color Me Beautiful (1980). The book was a 1980s pop-culture phenomenon and spawned a number of related sequels, including Jackson's own Color Me Beautiful Makeup Book, and Color for Men, (1984), as well as titles in the same line by other authors. Jackson utilized a seasonal color system less complicated than Caygill’s, and sought to assist each reader to find her own "thirty special colors."
