8 Foundations I Love That Come in Full Shade Ranges


With all the backlash in the media right now about brands not catering to all skin tones, I wanted to give a shout out to some of my favorite brands who are doing it right. Every foundation on this list is one that I’ve tried, owned, and loved on my dry, acne prone, sensitive, 30-something skin. 

Whether your skin color is light, medium, or dark, it can be hard to find the right shade to match you, so a huge shout out to the brands who are doing it right!
