The BEST Drugstore Foundations for Brown Complexions

The BEST Drugstore Foundations for Brown Complexions

In makeup, perfecting your base is so important. Your makeup look can be thrown completely off if you happen to choose a foundation with flashback or one with the wrong undertone. This is one of the main reasons why foundation shopping can be soooo frustrating. (And why people really need to stop asking us to "wait" for brands to create deeper shades after their initial launches )

If you are a beauty lover with a deeper complexion, there's a good chance you've struggled with finding the right foundation that truly matches your skin (let alone having the right finish and/or texture you prefer). And lets not even get started on beauty retailers. Even if a brand creates foundations in deeper shades, they might not be available to purchase in store, at a location near you. Depending on where you live, foundations for dark skin tones are few and far between. 

While we are fighting to change this current state of affairs, we also want to help address the issue at hand. We created this post help you quickly reference some of the best foundation lines out there that currently cater to darker complexions. Unfortunately, we don't have swatches of every line but we've included swatches of the products we do have. 

Lets get started with the low-end/drugstore foundations, shall we?
