It’s about time we acknowledge the power of nudes to be making a strong fashion statement. Whether it is the soft contour of a nude colored bra, a nude panty under white linen trousers or a shimmery nude stockings teamed with a sexy dress.
You know how it is when you match the Nude shade to your skin tone while buying makeup. The same needs to be applicable to lingerie but, unfortunately not many brands have come to address this problem.
I recently discovered this brand Nubian Skin, and this exactly is the problem they are targeting. The founder Ade Hassan actually decided to launch this brand after a frustrated effort to get tyhe right skin tone.
Hasssan says, the two women who inspired her to take the leap are Super model Iman and Eunice W Jhonson. Nubian Skin launched with a carefully edited collection of lingerie and hosiery to provide the essential underwear needs of women of colour. Headquartered in London, Nubian Skin delivers worldwide and looks forward to growing the company’s offering and expanding its reach.
What I found most amazing on their online shopping portal is the “Skin-Tone” section. They are aware that it might get a little confusing to match your shade, thus they have created a Foundation matching guide. Café au Lait is their lightest shade and Berry the darkest. You can actually match your foundation color codes to the Nubian Skin Tones.
