“What color is your nude tone?”
Usually when we talk about the natural skin we always use the word ‘nude tone’. There are many tones for the skin tone since people all around the world have different skin colors. However, Western skin tone that we know as ‘nude tone’ is creamy white skin or light yellow or ivory tone. Because there are many cases that white people skin becomes the basic of all skin tone. When we talk about them we forget to use the word ‘skin tone color’, instead we changed that word into ‘white skin color’.
I casted different races of models and we shot together and that how I found their own specific beauty. And there were some delicate things that I have never realized while I lived in Korea before. Also we called it the same nude tone but we have all different skin color and we can feel the equality. To respect each other’s differences, experiences, cultures. All similar but all different. Just like our skin colors that can be related, wishing we could be the one, slowly.
