    I'm of South Asian descent and my skin colour is beige/yellow.

    I don't wear blusher, but I use a peachy/light bronze highlighter. I also noticed that chocolate coloured liquid eyeliner suits me better than black eyeliner.

    Sorry that I can't be of greater help!

    I also have olive skin and find peach tones or bronzer far more flattering than the luminous pink some girls insist on sporting.

    I generally put my makeup on in this sort of order (after cleansing and moisturising) :

    Primer, colour correcting concealer for dark circles, foundation, blemish concealer if needed, translucent loose powder. Then eye makeup which with me varies a LOT, then cheeks, then lips.

    A bronzer or a peach tone would look nice.

    tbh you should only wear foundation on olive skin if you have spots or scars or bad pores
    if you can choose a blush that highlights your skin tone, choosing peaches, apricots, tans or even bronze instead of the rosy pinks that are more suitable for pale skin
    also use a highlighter instead of a bronzer which is better for pale skin apply it to any parts of the face where light would naturally hit it
    for eyes any eyeshadow and mascara should always be black for olive
    and eyeliner maybe dark blues, purples, greens or even charcoal.
    and bring pink in but only for the lips Wearing bright or pastel pinks is completely off limits for olive skin; however, a nice mauve or deep red is sensual and sexy

    you could also just wear a clear gloss

    and all of that totals in around £13 but low prices i can recommend they are amazing products such pigmentation in the shadows
