best brands for olive skin tones
« on: May 16, 2018, 05:10:47 am »
Hi all and  thank you for your previous answers  :)

I have an olive-y skin tone. I tan easily. In BareMinerals, the closest I can get to my shade is Medium-Beige. Clinique is off, and there are a few others that I've tried too, over the years. The thing is, all of the brands I've tried never really perfectly match. They're always just a smidge too pink or red. It's so frustrating because in most light I can get away with it, but in natural sunlight, you can totally tell the difference! Ugh!

Can anyone relate? Are there any brands out there specifically for olive-y or skin with a yellower undertone? Or brands that include these tones? Help!

This would be like extra-added-super-bonus, but I prefer non-comedogenic products, when possible.

thanks  :P

Hello, I've heard the EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear foundation has a really good range selection and they're not expensive either I would say drugstore pricing same as loreal range. On their website they state what undertones the foundation are as well. I'm looking to invest in one once I finish with the foundation I'm using atm. I have really really yellow undertones so it's hard to look for the right foundation.

Also I would say look into the ordinary coverage foundation, it's also fairly cheap, they have a selection of colour ranges as well but always seems to be out of stock!

Hope this helps!

Amy Clave Thanks, ! It does help. I'm willing to try out a couple different foundations, especially if they're inexpensive. When I find makeup that I like, I tend to stick to the same brand for years, so it's worth the time to get it right. Another thing is that I get really tan in the summer, so I always have to have 2 foundations. :rolleyes: Usually, it's the same brand, just different shades.
