Mineral Makeup Foundation - Viviana Shade

Mineral Makeup Foundation For True Olive Skin That Leans Pink

Enjoy a natural mineral base that is a gorgeous medium true olive to neutral that leans toward cool and works wonderfully for women with Mediterranean and Latin heritage that are fairer to medium in skin tone, yet have a soft brownish pink beige to their undertone. This mineral makeup shade can help correct yellow and sallow skin tones and is opposite of our HANNAH shade. It can be lightened with BIANCA if too dark or darkened with ADRIANA when needing more richness in depth as seasons change.

    Best Mineral Foundation

    Posted by Sanela Mujic on 16th Aug 2018

    I believe I've tried most of the mineral foundations but all of them irritated or dried my skin. I have rosacea and stopped using any foundation till I found Sterling Minerals. As I live in Germany and with shipping costs and customs clearance I have to pay a lot of money, I was not sure if I should order it. But it was the best decision ever. First time that the color really fit and that my skin looks healthy. No itches, no irritation and no spots after few hours. I'm also for few days on a sugar and dairy diet and am using just oil and the foundation, so my skin really improves!

    Great Coverage While Feeling Weightless

    Posted by Jeanette on 31st Jan 2017

    I am, first and foremost, so appreciative of the attention the owner, Katherine, gave in helping me find the right formula and color. I sent her a picture and, to my surprise, she noticed a slight olive tone to my skin. With her assistance, Viviana ended up being a great color that I would never have guessed was my color on my own. It tones down the redness I have, while blending with my neck and chest. I love the weightless feel of this foundation that gives great natural-looking coverage, without the cakiness I've experienced with so many others.

    I finally found the perfect shade for my skin after trying many different brands and types of foundations. I also like the smooth look it gives my skin..not too shiny and it's not cakey at all.

    I believe I found my perfect match

    Posted by Sylvia B. Ohio on 4th Nov 2014

    I just received my samples of your foundation. You had suggested Viviana and Hannah. Tried Viviana (Dewy) this morning using the dry method and it just looks like my skin but better. Going to try Hannah tomorrow, although it appears to be darker. I got all samples in both the Dewy and the Velvet. I also ordered Amara based upon the description on website but it looks way too gold/yellow for me, but I will try it also. Also bought a sample of the Satin Rose Mineral Veil. Great makeup so far.

    Finally an excellent color match!

    Posted by Linda on 19th Jun 2014

    For years (40 to be exact I am 62) I struggled with finding a foundation with the correct undertone. I have been told I am "warm", "golden", or "olive". Yet, in color analysis, I look sick and sallow in "warm" colored clothing, namely browns, oranges, greens, etc.. My best colors in clothing are berries, fushia, navy, magenta, blue purples and blue greens, the cooler jewel tones. Most foundations look too orange, too red, too pink, too yellow or just plain chalky.

    I am of Italian ancestry and would consider myself on the lighter side of olive. Enter the Sterling Mineral shade "Viviana", a unique neutral to olive tone for those of us with a tad of pinky brown as an undertone. For me it is a perfect match and my complexion never looked so uniform and vibrant. Viviana tones down the sallower areas on my face, bringing out the slightly pink undertone I had when I was younger while still leaning olive. Amazingly, I don't look too pink or too "green". I look rested and my complexion has life to it again. Against my complexion, even the undertones in my grey hair look more flattering!

    mix match

    Posted by Liza on 1st Apr 2014

    I also bought Bianca to mix the two to get my color but it still isn't my color...I will have to buy another color to see what my actual match is. Aside from that the product is really good. I have tried other mineral makeups and they irritate my skin, this one doesn't. And I feel like I am not wearing anything. Am hoping to find the right color because it is so worth it. Puerto Rican skin color is always hard to match :-(
