How To Know Your If You Have an Olive Undertone

Undertones are different to your actual skin tone. They are the natural colours underneath the surface of your skin and knowing your undertone is the key to finding your perfect foundation shade. Warm, cool and neutral are the three basic undertones but these are sometimes split into ranges. 

If you have cool undertones, your skin will have hues of pink, red or blue. If you have warm undertones, your skin will appear peachy, yellow or golden; while neutral undertones have a mixture of these colours. Once you know your undertone, you can choose your foundation to best fit your skin. 

Any skin tone can have olive/warm undertones, which is why EX1 Cosmetics have a foundation shade for every skin tone, from fair to deep, all with warm undertones to perfectly match your honeyed skin.
