Foundation is the most crucial base for every makeup look, but finding the right shade isn’t always easy, especially when there’s not a wide colour variety to choose from. Luckily, there are some beauty brands working hard to create more inclusive foundation shades, so that you’re able to find the perfect undertone and colour for a ‘my-skin-but-better’ finish. Shop our favourite inclusive foundation ranges, below.
