When it comes to finding makeup, half the battle is finding shades that complement your complexion. Whether it’s the perfect nude lipstick or a seamless foundation match, you need something that blends with your specific tone. The beauty world is finally becoming more inclusive and we’re beginning to see shade ranges that actually reflect the beautiful array of skin tones we have all over the world. Gone are the days of a ten-shade foundation range! We’re rounding up our fave products that have an extensive shade range to give them the hype they deserve. Check it out:
When Morphe announced they were releasing a 60-shade range, the beauty world stood up and gave them a (virtual) round of applause. And the foundation is just as noteworthy; it’s matte, full coverage, plus it’s long-wearing, transfer-resistant, and water-resistant. There are five shade brackets in total: rich, deep, tan, medium, and light, with each range covering multiple undertones (warm, cool, neutral, and olive). As the shade range is so extensive, we do recommend you try it on in-store if you can.
2. L.A. Girl Concealer Pro.HD Conceal, £4.99
If you’re looking for a drugstore concealer, L.A. Girl is a great affordable option. The crease-resistant concealer offers intense coverage that will brighten your undereye in seconds. The formula is creamy and blends out really well without creasing, which is a must! The collection also includes a selection of colour correctors so if you have any pigmentation or dark spots, you can cancel out unwanted tones. There’s also a rich collection of colour correctors to cater to the needs of different skin tones, for example, they have orange to neutralise dark spots in deep skin tones and mint-green to cancel out redness in fair skin tones.
The L.A. Girl Concealer Pro.HD Conceal is available on Love To Slay.
Hands-down the most flattering colour on all skin tones. The formula is easy to blend, the colour is gorgeous (a golden-peachy-apricot), it isn’t chalky, and happens to be a shade that just works well on every skin tone. You can wear as a wash of colour or layer for a more intense finish. Either way, perfect.
The NARS Powder Blush in Orgasm is available on Love To Slay.
This foundation is a popular drugstore go-to. The formula is insane, especially if you have oily skin; it instantly mattifies without looking cakey and is super comfortable on the skin. It also contains micro-powders to help blur imperfections and pores, while also absorbing any excess oil. And most importantly, unlike other drugstore ranges that offer 12 shades (thank you, next), it offers 40 shades from Fair Porcelain to Espresso.
The 3D Highlighter Collection offers a snatched highlighter for every skin tone: Pink Sands for fair to medium skin tones, Golden Sands for medium and tan skin tones, and Bronze Sands for tan to rich skin tones. Each palette features two different textures, a cream-base highlighter that melts into the skin (top left), and three powder highlighters that can be layered to create a 3D effect.
The Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palettes is available on Love To Slay.
This palette is perfect for all skin tones. Consider this palette your toasted-nudes holy grail. While the top two rows of shades are your standard neutrals, the bottom two rows add some warmth into the mix with terracottas, bronzes, and coppers.
7. Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème, £12.70
It’s not always easy to find lip colours that work all the way along the shade spectrum, especially within the drugstore aisle. However, the Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème has a range of super pigmented matte lipsticks that come through on every skin tone and look ultra-flattering. The transfer-proof formula feels really comfortable as it’s infused with shea butter and soybean oil to hydrate the lip, plus it only costs £12.70! We’ll take the full collection.
The Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer is a super full-coverage concealer that will take your eyes from hella-tired to fresh AF. The formula is infused with green tea to give your under eyes a surge of energy while the cool tip applicator helps immediately depuff. Huda Beauty spent months creating a shade range that would be super diverse without being too overwhelming; the result is a 20-shade range that spans from ultra-rich to super fair.
Fenty has been committed to being inclusive from the beginning! It’s OG foundation had 40 shades, which they have now expanded to 50 shades, plus it comes with a matching concealer. Riri has also delivered another variation of the Pro Filt’r foundation, catered for dry to normal skin with a luminous finish (the OG was a matte finish for normal to oily skin). Both are made with climate-adaptive technology so they’re sweat-proof and humidity proof.
The hype around this lipstick is totally legit. From fair skin tones to medium olives going into duskier complexions, this bright red works for everyone. It goes on slightly dry, being a powdery matte, but it’s nothing a little slick of balm below the colour won’t take care of.
The MAC Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo is available on Love To Slay.
