Make-up advice for Asian-olive skin

 

 - Make-up advice for Asian-olive skin
Yellow (not pink-based) foundations are best for olive skins. If color matching is proving tricky try a bespoke blend from Cosmetics a la Carte, which will give you the finish and coverage of your choice (£45, stockists: 020 7622 2318 or cosmeticsalacarte.com). Mineral foundations, both powder and liquid, will give a long-lasting, dewy glow - try Jane Iredale Bases (from £35, stockists: 020 8450 7111) or Inika Mineral Foundation (£23, inikacosmetics.co.uk).

A pop of color also looks great on Asian and olive skins, so swirl a rosy blush onto the apples of cheeks and for lips. Go for rich shades with a warm or brown base. Korres Color Guava Lipstick (£13.50, available at Asos.com) is the perfect tone - simply smudge into lips with fingertips for day and shoot straight from the tube for night.
