For olive skinned beauty junkies, finding makeup and beauty bloggers who share your undertones can be a challenge. Tracking down the perfect foundation is often difficult, and finding colors and shades that complement your unique undertone isn’t always a walk in the park. Olive undertones occur in a wide range of complexions, which can make shade matching that much more complex. Deeper olive skin tones tend to appear golden, and lighter skin tones have a cooler, green tint. Think you might have olive undertones?

Here’s a quick way to find out: Check the veins on your wrist. If they are equally green and blue, then you have either neutral or olive undertones. Although finding the perfect makeup for your olive undertone seems complicated, influencers can help. We’ve rounded up seven beauty bloggers with olive undertones, ahead:
