Intimacy means something deeply personal. It is a close
connection or a deep understanding of a place or a person.
Suppose you would like a person to open up, be relaxed in
your presence, be ready for any discussion, THEN turn into intimacy itself –
meet them “NAKED”!
Today’s post is dedicated to your nude color.
The nude or your skin tone color is not as absolute, formal
and insulating as black. When wearing the right skin tone, you feel relaxed,
accessible and elegant. Wear this color if you want to be very frank and honest
I read that some professionals (e.g. psychologists) paint their
offices in “their nude” as if they continue themselves in the walls.
This color makes you slightly vulnerable, it expresses your
basic essence to some extent.
If your skin is lighter than your hair color, you can
combine your nude color with your hair color to create a more organic look.
The list of skin tones is quite long – from alabaster to
dark chocolate. In addition, there are people with a “simple” skin, without sub
tones, and there are people with a “complex” skin. I just would like to draw
you attention at the amount shades of “beige” or “nude”. You will notice a
little difference between two colors.
What is a neutral color? You have probably heard or read
about them. What gives you the knowledge that neutral colors are, for example,
black, beige, blue and brown? What can you do with this information?
Let us try to find one of your neutral colors. In order to
do this, we will look at the most important and largest accessory in our
appearance, our hairstyle.
We will not discuss the shape and types of hairstyles. Look at your hair color (your natural color). You will see that it is not smooth, it consists of highlights, lighter and darker shades. Pick a color that matches your hair color. No need to find only one color. It can also be lighter, darker. Think of several options. We remember that the quality of colors depends on the texture of fabrics.
If you found and you now know what is your neutral color, then it’s time to ask yourself: “what can be done with this information?”
Purchase items of this color. You can have trenches,
sweaters, dresses of this color. In most cases, your neutral color gives a
casual effect, and most importantly, it harmonizes the image.
You can repeat the hair color in your image. Use accessories
– bags, belts or shoes. I picked up a few illustrations. Appreciate the
delicate use of black in the first two illustrations. See how thin lines of
black work with hair color.
What if you work with people a lot? For example, you are an employee of HR department. You need to keep your interlocutor in focus, you need to broadcast the following message: “it is easy to communicate with me.” I am not talking about how to look authoritative and formal. Expressing authority is a topic for another post. I am also not talking about making a super strong impression on anyone, stunning your interlocutor to the point that he forgets the topic of your conversation. I am talking about establishing such a dialogue so that the one who talks to you looks directly into your soul, because our eyes are mirrors of our souls.
Well, you need to wear your eyes, which means clothes of the
color as your eyes. The effect will be intensified if you make combinations
with your white color, in other words you will add the white of the eyes to the
Wearing the color of your eyes will not be a heavy job, as a
rule, these are not very bright colors.
Eyes of many people change the color depending on the
clothes. Choose the color that will make your eyes brighter. The trick is to
find a color that highlight your eyes and do not make them dull.
For those who are not very advanced in personal color
analysis, I would like to explain the logic of any color palette. It is quite
simple. A good half of the colors in your palette (at least according to the
system, of which I am an adherent) are the colors inherent in your appearance.
Have you ever thought that such a romantic color as pink is
the color of a diluted blood?
Your red is the intensified color of hemoglobin, your beige
is your melanin.
I am sure that you
will make discoveries in your appearance if you study yourself attentively. For
example, I found that the irises of my banal dark brown eyes are surrounded by
a purple ring. And purple always looked great on me.
Try to find the colors inherent in your appearance. Look for
your beige. This is not a very quick process, but by itself the journey to
yourself is already a pleasant pastime.
