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!
