From the Vault: Makeup for Olive Toned Skin
Olive toned skin comes in a variety of colors from light to dark, but the key characteristic of this family of tones, is a sort of golden appearance to the skin that isn’t too cool nor too warm. Olive toned skin tans easily and can be found in (but not limited to) various ethnicities such as Latina, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and South Asian.
If you have olive toned skin, it is very important to avoid makeup shades that are too cool or too warm. You want something to mimic the neutral tones found in your skin. Bronzers look great to play up this undertone, but make sure the bronzer isn’t too orange. Other colors that look great against olive tones are peaches and purples.
