Foundation Brown GirlsChoosing the right foundation for your brown skin takes time and needs your patience. You will have to go through a couple of trial-and-errors before you finally stumble upon the correct foundation.  Luckily, cosmetic brands are finally catering to more shades of black. Check out these great foundation brands you should consider if you’re a fellow melanin sister.


Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup by Urban Decay

What Price: $39

Coverage: Medium

Best For: Normal to dry skin

Details: With 18 shades, this foundation emulates the skin. The purpose of this foundation is to make your skin look naked, and it does what it promises. It is buildable and great for those who prefer light-weight products. It gives medium coverage so it is not recommended for those with oily skin nor those looking to hide acne scarring.


Foundation: True Match Super Blendable Makeup from L’Oreal

Price: $9.99

Coverage: Light to Medium

Best For: Normal to oily skin

Details: This light-weight foundation is a more affordable option and evens out the skin beautifully. However, it is not long-lasting on its own. But with a translucent powder and a good setting spray could improve its longevity. Comparing True Match Super Blendable Makeup to a few expensive foundations, its is a favorable choice.


Foundation: Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 from Mac

Price: $27

Coverage: Full

Best For: Any Skin Type

Details: Not only does this full coverage foundation control oily skin throughout the day, its leaves your face with a flawless matte finish. With a massive variety of 33 shades, Mac’s  Studio Fix Fluid is one of my personal favorites and best recommendations to those looking for full coverage.


Foundation: bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum Foundation
 Broad Spectrum SPF 20 from bareMinerals

Price: $29

Coverage: Light to Medium

Best For: Dry to Normal Skin

If you have oily skin, this may not the right foundation for you.  The last thing you want is to look like a shiny Christmas tree ornament by the end of the day. Although there are a range of accessible shades, the darkest may not be dark enough for some skin tones.

Price: $44

Coverage: Full Coverage

Best For: Any Skin Type
