About The Honest Olive


Hello! I’m glad you’ve found my blog! I’m just starting out, but please take a look around. I hope you’ll find something that’s helpful to you!


Who am I?

I’m Beccah. I’m 27 years old, and based in the South-East of England. I like all things skincare and makeup, baking, checklists, and pasta. I learn languages for fun. I love cheesecake and I should workout more.


Why ‘The Honest Olive’?

The olive part is simple. I have olive skin, meaning that my skin has muted greenish undertones to it. Because of this, I’ve found that finding makeup that suits me – particularly foundation matching – to be quite the journey! I want to help others, who may or may not be olive, along on their own beauty journeys.

The honest part? I feel like there is a lot of dishonesty (or at least a lack of transparency) in the beauty industry and the beauty blogging world, and I want to distance myself from that. I want my readers to know that they can trust me to give my honest opinion, and to be candid about my own struggles as well as successes.


Who is this blog for?

I hope that anybody with an interest in beauty can find something they like here! This blog will be particularly useful if you have acne-prone skin, combination skin, or olive undertones to your skin. If you’re looking for swatches, honest reviews and comparisons, makeup ideas or just a friendly blog to pass some time, this is for you!
