We’re been going over some of Clinton Kelly’s style mistakes and how to avoid them. I have to agree with him on this one: nobody looks good in beige (well almost no one). Light neutrals such as khaki can make you look drab, sallow and lifeless. When you wear color near your face you are “establishing a relationship with your face and the color.” Wearing beige near your face — probably about the same color as your face — actually highlights any flaws in your face such as broken capillaries around your nose, some sunspots on your forehead, etc. One exception: darker skin provides a contrast to beige — s0 it may be a better color for you.
The same principal goes for lipstick, ladies. Beige — Nude makeup…it’s not your friend. It only flatters a 20 year old with perfect bone structure. Most women, especially as they age, need color on their face and that means on their lips, too. One-two shades darker than your natural lip color is perfect.
