If you have olive skin and are struggling to find a foundation that matches your skin's tone and type, keep reading. This hub will give you the best foundation for olive skin.

Women with olive skin often find that there are commercial shades of foundation that are either too pink or powdery looking for the yellow and green undertones in their skin.

We have taken the guesswork out of the equation for you. So you won't need to scan and try out a slew of brands to find your perfect foundation.

You also won't have to worry about acne breakouts or your skin looking too dry. The foundation that we found was the best suited both acne-prone and more mature skin. That is difficult to find in one bottle of makeup.

The Best Foundation for Olive Skin: Origins Stay Tuned

The best foundation for olive skin is: Origins Stay Tuned Balancing Face Makeup (pictured on the right).

We chose this to be the best foundation overall because:

  • It has a wide range of shades that suit olive skin, complementing your naturally occurring yellow and green undertones. and the pigment technology in Stay Tuned ensures the color stays true all day.
  • The foundation is long-lasting. You won't need to touch-up during at least an eight-hour period.
  • It is oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it won't clog your pores.
  • Even though it is light enough for young skin, we found this foundation also works on mature skin. It helps fill in wrinkles without making them appear cake-y.
