I’m sure we’ve all heard of the complete disappointment from some of the latest foundation launches. I’m totally bummed from Tarte’s Shape Tape foundation launch BUT I’ve found some of the best foundation ranges for ALL skin tones, including for POC! So fear not if you haven’t quite found that perfect shade. Listed below are brands that have at least 30 shades to find that perfect fit. I’ve included everything you need to know! Also have a few honorable mentions that didn’t quite make the numbers but still are foundations worth trying.
1. Fenty Beauty

This foundation is BOMB. Gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish.

Best of all, this longwearing, light-as-air texture is undetectable on skin
