ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Pout Pop
I love the way rich, red lip color pops against an all nude ensemble. And so do celebs: just look at Angelina Jolie, Diane Kruger, Emma Stone and Lea Michele! I wore the combo back in February to a Great Gatsby party. Today, I took a more subtle approach with lace and chiffon. People think you need a tan to wear nude but the neutral looks just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, against pale skin. The red lip helps make sure you don’t look washed out. I used CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain since I found it to be the longest lasting lip color.

    Love the clothes and the color but can’t bear to use the word “nude” for it because people are not all one color! I’m not usually overly PC…it’s just a matter of logic to me.

      Interesting point Wendy. But I think these days, nude is a broader term. Just look at the four celebs above. They’re all wearing different colors, but we’d call all of the dresses nude. When I was asked to recommend nude shoes last year, I made a point of saying that you want to find a color to match your skin tone:

      I also just read an interesting article in the Huffington Post, which quoted designer Pamella Roland saying, “Nudes are a group of elegant shades, but there are a lot of specific shades. I can’t describe a single specific color for nude.” The article was titled: NUDE: Fashion’s Most Debated Color.
