4 Foundations That Are Inclusive of all Skin Tones

As much as we love the no makeup makeup trend, certain occasions (and acne scars) call for the full coverage that only foundation can bring, but finding one that perfectly matches our skin can be tricky—especially for darker toned ladies. Fortunately, there are brands that know the struggle and offer a wide selection for virtually every skin tone. Take a look at our favorite inclusive selects.

The Top-Rated Foundations That Actually Stay Put

A.p.d.g. Longwear Liquid Pigment

A.P.D.G. has been around for eons, but it’s finally getting the love it deserves thanks to Reddit users who swear by the vegan and cruelty-free formulation and shade ranges. For starters, there are 16 tones dedicated to darker skin tones and the brand offers sampler packs so you can shade match before committing to a larger purchase. Obsessed!

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24h Long Wear Foundation

If you’re looking for non-greasy long wear, this OG makeup brand is for you. It manages to maintain your skin’s pH level so that color stays put all day long. And just when we didn’t think it could get any better, it has a natural-looking, velvety matte finish in 40 shades.

Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

After struggling to find the perfect foundation, Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty foundation that would work for all skin types and tones. “The Fenty Face was created for women of all skin tones, of all personalities,” she says. And it’s true. The affordable foundations offer 40 shades ranging from the lightest light to darkest dark.

Sephora Collection 10 Hr Wear Perfection Foundation

We’ve been huge fans of the makeup giant for years, but the in-house line doesn’t disappoint either. And with 37 shades loaded with hyaluronic acid that smooths the skin, and vitamin E to protect against environmental stressors, there’s something for everyone—yes, even the super-tanned beauty who’s always on vacation.
