Best Brands for Olive Skin Tones??

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I'm new to the forum and super-excited to chat with you all! I've got a question! :)

So, 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. 

Chat soon! <3

Hi @Melissa Rebecca! Welcome to MUT!  Have you tried Bobbi Brown foundations? The shade range is more yellow based.

    • Hello.
      This is extremely embarrassing for me, but I am a man and a while ago I tried some makeup just for a laugh. The problem is I found that I ended up really loving it and the way it made me feel. I am interested in looking into maybe getting some makeup but I have no idea what I'm doing. I was wondering if maybe anyone had any suggestions or recommendations on any products I should look into? I'm sorry I know it's strange and it's very embarrassing for me to ask about, and I hope it's not uncomfortable in any way at all. Thanks.
    • @rianarob If possible, I return the product to the store. I had to return the whole Too Faced Peach collection when it first came out because I purchased all the products but the fragrance gave me a horrible reaction on my face. If I am unable to return the products then I sanitize them the best I can and give them to friends, coworkers, etc. Products like lip gloss and liquid eye products just get tossed. I don't have the time or need to sell them. I've looked into donating products to a women's shelter but none around me take used or sample sized products.
    • Kat Von D is releasing a new brow collection  4/20. Thoughts?
