Black color absorbs all wavelengths of light, it represents total
absence of light.
You can look at this color from two sides. From the viewer’s side,
black can be perceived as darkness, and darkness is fear. This color can look
threatening. It can make look large person even more massive and menacing,
especially if this large person confronts you.
From the side of the carrier, this color represents a complete
absorption, in other words, protection and safety, as well as privacy. It is
warmer in black when it is cold. Perhaps, bikers, goths, and punks wear black
not to shock and challenge. Paradoxically, they might wear black to feel safe
Many of us reach for safe black when we go to a party in
order not to stand out.
There is a large group of people, for whom black is recommended.
It looks good on them. I do not mean red carpet events, I mean day to day life.
One of their representatives is Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld also
belongs to that group. They have a similar aesthetic vision.
I also belong to their faction. Certain parameters, such as black
hair, relatively high contrast, introversion, low voice and some other
parameters explain my ineradicable love for the combination of black and white.
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.
