Major update

I try to get on here and post blog's of things that I want all my readers to know about. I know I haven't been as present as I would like but I feel like this needs to be said and I need to give you all updates.

NC25 was still slightly pink on me. I got rematched and NC20 is perfect...All yellow, no oxidizing and no pink!!! Love it.

Estee Lauder Double Wear. I had a really hard time finding the correct shade of this amaaaazing foundation. Rattan (2W2) has the right undertone but was way too dark. I then got rematched and got Dawn (2W1). The undertone was beige where I pulled pink. I had to mix correctors to get the right undertone but the shade was about right.

I recently got rematched by Estee Lauder a new machine to Dawn (1W2). HALLELUJAH!! UNDERTONE AND SHADE IS PERFECT!

Which brings me to my next point. You can use color correctors such as the green one from MUFE and add it to any foundation to give yourself a better match with your olive undertone. It's expensive but…

As you all know, it's very very hard to find a foundation that matches my light-medium olive skin.

Well...I think I found my all time favorite and I can't believe I overlooked it! Estée Lauder 'Double Wear' Stay-in-Place Liquid Makeup #2W2 RATTAN. It does not move, has full coverage and is gorgeous!!

I have stopped using liquid foundation for a while now because I couldn't find the right match so I would use MAC StudioFix powder foundation in C3. It's a great match but wears off after 3-4 even with the primer, setting power and setting spray.

I usually use that with my ELF yellow HD powder.

I am a little disappointed with this collection. I was hoping there would be a lot of MLBB shades and lots of pink-browns, but what they putout was these unappealing grey's with dirt browns. Not cute.

Here are the descriptions of the shades I bought below:

01 Honeymoon: Graysish purple - similar to Limecrime02 Embelishment: Grayish muave brown04 Ruffle Trim: Brick red with a hint of brown, terra-cotta-esque with less orange, more peach. very wearbale and my favorite.05 Beauty Mark: brown06 Push-Up: nude peach08 Bedtime Flirt: nude peach pink09 Corset : light grayish pink10 Teddy: dark brown/bark12 Exotic: red brown. gorgeous color, very wearable. my other favorite color.

Hello Everyone!

I know I haven't posted for 2 years, but I will do my best to come on here more often.

As you may or may not have known,I was incorrectly told I had yellow undertones; I am actually olive...Light olive to be exact.

Most people think that if you are olive you are automatically Mediterranean and Medium-dark. That's not the case. You can olive an olive undertones and be light, medium, dark and everything in between. Olive is the UNDERTONE, NOT your SKINTONE.

I still religiously use MAC StudioFIX Powder Foundation in C30. That is my all time favorite and best match. They do NOT have C30 in a liquid, which stinks. I have tried their C4.5, C4 and they are pink and too dark. We will see. I have heard many good things about BECCA Cosmetics but not sure if their shade range is wide enough and Olive friendly enough :)

I have also bought EX1 Cosmetics Liquid foundation in 200. Its a good match, but its not as much coverage (medium, buildable) and I feel like it just sits on my…
