This is THE complexion palette your olive skin needs

If you’re looking for a does-it-all skin perfecting palette - look no further. Two bronzers, two blush shade and everything you need to create the perfect contour – this needs to be your next pay day purchase.

Is there anything better than a brand new super slick make-up palette? We think not! Super insta-friendly, perfect for your handbag and ideal for for touch ups on the go. The only problem is most only contain a couple of shades you actually want to wear. Well, not anymore.


Morphe, loved by influencers and celebrities, has absolutely struck olive gold with its new Complexion Pro in Totally Tan, £24. It contains the perfect balance of bronzers, blush, contour and highlighter hues so you can create a flawless finish with one single product.

The two bronzers – Big Shot and Trailblazer – both contain red and gold undertones making them ideal for warming up olive skin. A deep rose blush (Splinky) and a deep peach (Maker) can be used to add depth and a natural looking health flush.


However, it is the two contour shades which are the real gamechanger for olive skin. Some contour hues can make skin appear ashy or dirty, instead of sculpted. But, with a warmer tinge to the deeper contour powder (Misbehavin) and golden undertone of the brightening (Power Player) powder will add highlight without making the skin look sallow. Both the shimmer highlights are gold and bronze based – rather than pearl which can make olive skin look washed out

Yep, it's a winner for us.


“If you want a flawless finish then you need to try EX1 Cosmetics. I use it on all my clients and always have a bottle in my personal make-up too. It looks so good on camera, doesn’t give any flashback, and gives skin a golden glow.”


“I have olive skin so I really wanted to try EX1 Cosmetics, as I had no idea what shade I would be. I tried the match me tool, thinking it was a bit of a gimmick, but it got my shade spot on. For someone will yellow or green undertones these products are amazing!”


“Before I used EX1 Cosmetics I tried EVERY premium foundation on the market. Some were ok, but most left me feeling disappointed and underwhelmed. I didn’t have much hope for a foundation costing £12.50, but I was SO wrong. The medium coverage looks like your skin but better and it doesn’t oxidise.”


“I’ve always been told I have warm or medium skin tone, but every foundation I ever tried was either too pink or too orange. After trying the skin classification tool and realising I have warm skin with green undertones – everything makes sense! Now, I look for make-up aimed at olive skin – like EX1 Cosmetics – and I have never looked back!”


“I used to mix at least two different foundations to create the right shade for my skin – until I found EX1 Cosmetics. The shade match is spot on and the formula blends perfectly into my skin. I love it.”


“I had seen that loads of celebrities using EX1 Cosmetics Foundation and I was intrigued to see if it lived up to the hyp e. It blew me away. The formula feels so premium for £12.50. I recommend it to everyone.
