Get Cheeky, like the Lipdrape, battles colors by different hues and families. Unlike the Lipdrape, these values and chromas are meant specifically for cheeks.
Is this really necessary if you already did the Lipdrape? No, and yes. Get Cheeky is different from the Lipdrape in that it isn’t just about the Hue and the Family, it is also about the Genus of colors. Our Genus groups are split up as follows: Pure, Vivid, Early, Subtle, Deep.
When you do the cheek drape you learn which side of the color spectrum you fall on, the Light side or the Dark side. The Light side is comprised of Pure, Early, and Subtle. The Dark side is comprised of Deep and Vivid colors. This takes the Lipdrape a step further.
Another difference is that the cheek drape tests colors in one additional hue as well, that of Strength. Although there are still Ambition, Creativity, and Power colors in this drape, the results may differ in that your lips have pigment to them making identifying the correct colors a more difficult task. Colors that work on your arm may vary greatly on your lips. The cheek drape works as a way to confirm and build upon your original findings.
In sum, Get Cheeky is a fantastic tool to help you find if you are on the Light side or the Dark side. It also helps those who find identifying the correct colors on their skin to be a bit tricky.
You never need to buy anything, but it would be useful for you to do the Lipdrape as well. The reason is that your lips are a bit of a facial anomaly. That is why many women that were given original generalized seasonal spaces found that some lipsticks that looked great on their seasonal comrades were not working as well for them. Your lips have a different pigment then the rest of your face and they vary greatly from woman to woman. A color that may look insanely good on your cheeks, may just seem natural and unremarkable on your lips. It won’t look horrible on your lips but it may not be enough for you to feel like you can really rock it out. For this reason, we recommend using both the drapes if you are interested in learning your unique color space.
The cheek drape is all about the fighting of the colors. We recommend you start with the Light side colors on your arm with q-tips.
