When it comes to creating a flawless complexion, there’s no easier way to fake it than by using foundation. Foundation can help minimize blemishes and smooth uneven skin tones. That’s why choosing the correct shade is crucial, especially if you’re a woman of color. It's not hard to beleive that woman with darker skin tones often have trouble finding the right foundation shade. The trial-and-error situation gets even harder when there is only a handfull of shades— all of which are typically very fair. Whether it's picking out the perfect match for your skin tone or having limited shade options available, it can be tough.
However, I have found several foundations that would be suitable for woman of color. Here are my favorite high-end and drugstore foundations that have made it their mission to provide every black girl with shades spanding form Zendaya to Lupita.
