When it comes to the beauty department, being a woman of color can have its challenges at times, especially when it comes to anything “nude” related. For so long we’ve had to resort to the color beige for nude lipsticks, nail polishes, and even lingerie. Well, all my ladies of color can rejoice…a change has come!
Nude has made a comeback for the fall and there are a few companies that are blazing the trails to bring you more options than just your average beige color! I love a punch of color with anything, but there’s also a time when the simple, minimal look is what I’m aiming for.
Here are a few brands and some of my faves making a statement in the nude department.
Nails – HIPPxRBG
I am already a fan of the RBG brand, which you can read about here. If you’re not up on RGB, the brand has a wildly popular nude collection for women of all shades. “T” shades are your tinted shades, like your BB creams. “F” shades are your foundation shades, similar to your full coverage foundations in F1, F2, F3, & F4.

I love a pretty nude lipstick, but it can be challenging to find a nude that doesn’t show up too chalky or gray, which most of them tend to do. However, I’m a huge proponent of nude collections from Mac, Maybelline, and YSL
Lingerie – Nubian Skin
I can honestly say I have never been able to sport the “nude” look with lingerie. My go-to has always been black to avoid any see-through catastrophes. However, you still run a chance of your under lovelies showing simply because they don’t match your skin tone….until now. Nubian Skin is redefining “nude”, developing a line of nude lingerie for women of color that will launch October 2014! Finally! Ahh! So excited.
