Make-up tutorial for olive skin tones

Hello gorgeous ladies! Today I’m going to answer to your many requests on how to create the perfect sunkissed look when you have olive skin. Since I wanted some tried and true tips, I called out to my friend Gayana, popular Youtuber and top influencer from LA. And she came up with a step by step make-up tutorial for the olive skinned beauties out there.

Summer make-up for olive skin tones

Enjoy Gayana’s video and find below a step by step tutorial including all the products mentioned.

Make-up tutorial step by step

Start by prepping your eyelids with Laura Mercier Primer in Buff. Then blend in two eyeshadows: KKW X MARIO Palette in Miami & Albanian using Morphe M415 Brush. Give texture to your lashes with Lancôme CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. And paint them black with Lancôme HYPNÔSE DRAMA.

Make-up base for olive skin tones

For a glowing complexion, prep your skin with Belif Moisturizer and Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer. Then apply a thin layer of foundation (Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in 5.75) using Elcie Beauty Sponge. Pro-tip: don’t swipe the foundation, gently dab it in.

Now apply your concealer to cover dark circles and spots. By the way, Gayana recommends Nars Creamy & Soft Matte Concealers in Custard, which work well on olive skin tones.

For a matte and even base, powder your face and neck with Chanel Foundation Powder in Beige. Blend it with BH Cosmetics Marble Luxe #6 Brush & #2. Pro-tip: when applying your make-up base, make sure to fade it out on your neck to avoid color-blocking.

Contouring and brow-shaping

Contour with Tiare Laguna Bronzer by Nars, and bake with Translucent Baking Powder by Laura Mercier. While the baking powder sits, wipe your eyebrows and lips clean with Neutrogena cleansing wipes. Now define and fill in your eyebrows applying Anastasia Beverly Hills Ebony Brow Powder with #12 Brush. Follow with Fix Brow Gel. Then brush away the excess of baking powder using BH Cosmetics Marble Luxe #1 Brush.

Finishing touch for a sexy glowing complexion

It’s time to get that glowing sexy sun kissed look! Fake your gorgeous tan thanks to Lise Watier Luxotika Bronzer. And dab Elcie Cosmetics Golden Haze Highlighter like shown by Gayana.

Then smoke out Bottom Lash Line with the same eyeshadows used on your upper eyelids (KKW X MARIO Palette in Miami & Albanian). While Armenian is the perfect shade to highlight your brow bones, nose bridge and inner corner of your eyes.

To complete your perfect make-up for olive skin, don’t forget your lips! So contour them with Mac Cosmetics Stripdown Liner and make them shine with KKW Super Nude Lipgloss.

Fix your artwork with Skindinavia Setting Spray and go slay like gorgeous Gayana!
