If you have olive skin, you may find it hard to get the right foundation that complements your skin colour perfectly. Don’t assume that because one foundation matches another lady with pale skin, it will also look beautiful on your skin; it may appear completely off on your skin complexion.
Many companies are ignorant about olive skin when making products for light complexions. And for those who are keen about it, often create concealers and foundations with cool undertones. We identified this gap and came up with the following guidelines with light and pale olive skin in consideration. We are looking to make you proud of your skin, so we compiled the best olive skin tone makeup suggestions for you. See what works well for you. But most crucial, have fun!
The Best Foundation Matches
Foundation levels your complexion, concealing the blemishes, redness, and discoloration. It also presents a black canvas for your light olive skin makeup such as bronze and blush. Besides, some foundations give you protection from the sun. However, if you have pale olive skin tone, finding the correct foundation is a daunting task. Many foundations out there in the market change your complexion to orange or pink. And a variety of yellow-based formulas are not ideal either. So, in this case, what do you opt for? You are not doomed to fail in your makeup. Though not so much foundations are available for olive skin, few still exist.
