Finding the perfect foundation for a brown or black person is always a struggle. Especially when certain brands don’t cater to your skin tone. For years and years, people with a darker complexion have missed out on the luxury of being able to choose from a diverse foundation range. You can walk into a drug store and see rows and rows of pale complexion shades. Oh, and you can’t forget about those 2 to 3 orange foundations meant to cater towards people of color. It’s getting better, though. As summer starts and school ends, it can be even tougher for people of color to find a foundation that blends in and doesn’t stand out.
Here are 6 diverse foundations that are going to last you through the hot summer days.
Maybelline Fit me matte & poreless $8, found in store at Ulta.
