Best Looks for Mediterranean to Asian Skin
Women with olive-based skin can carry off a wide range of colours on their face. Olive skin in this sense refers to women from Asia and the Middle East as well as the typical Mediterranean complexion that is usually associated with the term. Darker eye make-up looks great on this skin tone, as do neutral shades, so there are a lot of make-up looks that will suit you.
BaseA light foundation is all that you really need to even out your skin tone. Although olive skin can appear to look yellow, it actually has more of a natural green undertone, as well as the yellow undertone that all skin tones have. This combination can make your skin look grey. To counteract this, choose a foundation that is yellow-to-gold based, as this will "lift" your skin. If you need to cover up any slight imperfections, try a concealer in the same shade, or if your skin tends to look grey and ashen, go for an orange-based concealer. It sounds weird, but it does work!
BlusherWarm pinks, coral, apricot, terracotta, dark plum and bronze will flatter your skin. These will provide a natural glow. Avoid colours that are too bright, as they will leave your skin looking green. Likewise, peach and pale pink will make your face look too washed-out. Bronzing powder is another good option to emphasise your cheekbones. If you want to use a highlighter instead of blusher, pale gold and pinky gold shades will give you a radiant complexion that is perfect for evening.
EyesRich browns and burgundy colours will create a spectacular look, especially if they have a shimmer to them. Other good colours include copper, bronze, gold, warm pink, plum, forest green, dark purple and sapphire blue. As a general rule of thumb, any dark shade that contains a certain sparkle will ensure that your eye make-up is suitably eye-catching. These colours will all emphasise your stunning skin tone.
Metallic shades are another good look, but keep the colours fairly dark. The only real metallic shade to avoid is silver, as it isn't strong enough to complement your warm skin tone.
