Get to Know Your Skin Tone (Olive Skin)

Now that you have a better understanding of your particular skin tone, we can focus on specifics like what colours work best for your milky skin. The following will cover what works from head to toe, so take note on what appeals most to you or come back and re-read the article.

This week will go over what works best for those with Olive Skin. If you happen to fall into the Trapezoid (male) or Hourglass (female) categories and have been waiting for this week to get a better understanding of what works for your skintone, congratulations, we have arrived. You lucky few are pretty much the perfect Fashion Model, and the jealous envy of, and some may even say 'hated' by others. Thankfully for me, and unfortunately for those luckily unlucky few, the majority of us don't fall into these categories, or I'd be out if a job.

There is something to be thankful for Olive Skinned individuals. Lucky for you, there isn't much of anything you can't wear. From hair to make-up, clothing and accessories, the world of colours and combinations is yours. There are brown and yellow undertones in your skin, which makes wearing colours like oranges, reds, greens, and pinks rather easy for you.

When it comes to your hair, it's basically a matter of what you'd prefer, as anything from browns and reds, to most blondes will do fine. Your make-up will require a bit more effort, but considering the fact that you likely have undertones of red and perhaps green, you'll have great flexibility when it comes to choices. Blushes ranging from a bit more brown to more pink, lipsticks ranging from bright reds to more neutral; the world is yours, what look are you trying to accomplish? For foundation, it goes without saying, be sure that yours is as close to your skin tone as possible.

The seasons will play a heavier role when it comes to enhancing skin tone. For a brighter summer glow, reach for oranges and brighter pinks, and for a more subdued winter glow, reach for shades of green and neutral colours.

Outside of the hair colour options and make-up, these pointers can and should be applied to males as well; the gentleman should always be as fashionable as his female counterpart. Remember, being fashionable is all inclusive, clothing should complement hair, make-up and shoes should complement clothing, accessories should complement the entire outfit, but the complete ensemble should be flattering to the individual.

Be sure to enjoy the journey while creating your own unique style!
