I usually mix a couple of different colors to get a match. r/olesa1/22/2013 10:21AM

I have olivey skin +sicksexfix1/22/2013 10:09AM

How about mineral mu? Everyday Minerals sell neutral, olive, yellow and pink shades.Yurippe1/22/2013 5:47AM

Try Inglots or Geurlain or shesido or eldw. I am fair olive ++ohsewdizzy1/21/2013 9:32PM

Alima ! I thought I was olive toned until I sampled theirs-order a sample of the olives sashhi1/19/2013 7:33PM

I feel your pain. I am a very pale olive (NC15) and every single foundation +NoirAngelx1/19/2013 12:26AM

Try Illa Skin base as I suggested below. 4.5 will work on NC15 :)bernb1/19/2013 12:31AM

I think I will! I'm having a bit of trouble finding matches, TY!NoirAngelx1/19/2013 12:38AM

Yep. Lunasol, Shu, Ellis Faas, and Chantecaille all have olive/neutral foundations; for concealer ++raissanina1/19/2013 12:19AM

oh dang fancy brands! lol i dont access to these either :(tokiomama1/19/2013 12:24AM

See below :)raissanina1/19/2013 12:25AM

PBI Bah I have access to none of those brands to get matched in person >:( miranda241/19/2013 12:22AM

Sephora sells Ellis Faas; Camera Ready Cosmetics sells samples of it.bernb1/19/2013 12:34AM

I know, I had to roll the dice, but found my perfect match. Also ++raissanina1/19/2013 12:25AM

:O I forgot about that, I should look into it. I took my chances on Shu Nobara stick and failed :/miranda241/19/2013 12:26AM

Nobara broke me out, unfortunately, and I actually found 754 to be too neutral, which shocked me.raissanina1/19/2013 12:28AM

*takes notes* thanks, this is a great starting point. ++miranda241/19/2013 12:50AM

Hmm. If you're closer to NC25 right now then you might try Lunasol OC02 or YO02 ++raissanina1/19/2013 12:44AM

I used to think I was very warm/around NC30, but lately I'm starting to think I'm more neutral-warm+miranda241/19/2013 12:42AM

You're a bit lighter/warmer than me, iirc? You should check out EF S103 and S104 ++raissanina1/19/2013 12:36AM

754 was the shade I ordered too, and it was def too yellow or olive, and too dark. I actually +miranda241/19/2013 12:33AM

Look at Illamasqua Skin Base in shade 4.5 - it has an olive tone to it.bernb1/19/2013 12:10AM

oh really? thats great news, ill have to find a sephora that carries it so i can sample it! TY!tokiomama1/19/2013 12:12AM

It should work for an NC20 or so skin tone, so may be a touch too light - but the colour is perfect!bernb1/19/2013 12:14AM

probably a lot lighter but ill still give it a shot!tokiomama1/19/2013 12:24AM

Have you tried using a neutralizer?kimmyn1/19/2013 12:06AM

just looked up Lorac, it's for redness, not green....?artemistzitzikilakis1/19/2013 12:49AM

ive tried using salmon concealers, thats as far as i've gonetokiomama1/19/2013 12:07AM

I've heard good things about Lorac's neutralizer, maybe get a sample of that? :)kimmyn1/19/2013 12:08AM

i didnt think about getting a neutralizer for my face! great idea!tokiomama1/19/2013 12:09AM

I think it's geared more towards redness though- another suggestion is the MUFE primerskimmyn1/19/2013 12:10AM

i dont get much redness (only a bit on my nose) just those damn circles are grey/green/blue!!tokiomama1/19/2013 12:11AM
