Your red color is your intensified blush. If pink is a
diluted blush, then red is exactly the opposite. And I will add again that there
exists many shades of red.
When you go for red, it may mean one of the two. The first option is you feel tired or you have a breakdown. You put on the red color to support yourself energetically. I had such a period in my life. I’ve been working a lot. One day I bought several things in red – T-shirts, blouses. I lacked strength, and, without being aware of any color theories, I was seeking for the support in the form of color.
The second option when you go for red is a manifestation of your
energy, optimism and, consequently, your sexuality. You want to show all of
yourself and share your energy with the world.
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.
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.
The same color can go through transformations. What can we
do with a pure pigment?
It may be diluted or it may be mixed with some other colors.
Additions have a neutralizing effect, for example, they can shade or mute pure
pigments. Because of the various additions a cool color, like blue, can look
good on all types of skin. So when someone says: “I don’t go for purple,” the
first question that arises in response is: “but what kind of purple?”
The texture of the fabrics also plays a huge role. Just look
at silk and wool in the same color.
I would like to draw your attention to the following. There
is a large group of people who look good in clean or diluted colors. These
empty and “simple” colors make them look expensively dressed.
There is another group of people who cannot stand pure
pigments. And if they are in clothes of pure colors, it seems that they are
dressed to work in their gardens or in the middle of renovation worksJ
The photos I attached are about two princesses. Perhaps it
is not the best idea to show them as an example – they are public persons, they
have plenty of tools in their arsenal, sometimes what they wear is a pure marketing
decision. Nevertheless it is still clear that one of them looks good in pure
colors, and the other needs more complex solutions.
