What brands of foundation offer African American women flawless coverage and enough different shades for all of our numerous complexions?

Prescriptives makes great foundations for a variety of skintones. They also custom blend for a perfect match. I really like their Flawless Skin formula. MAC also makes a HUGE variety of colors and finishes for every skintone.

Astarte Cosmetics makes excellent makeup for Women of Color. My complexion range in similar to that between Gabrielle Union and Missy Elliot. This line was especially designed for and by women of color.

ASTARTE

Another great line of foundation for women is Milan Minerals Makeup. Minerals are light in weight. This line is owned by an African American woman

I have always used MAC foundation and concealer, I think they have great shades. But if you want something customized to your unique skin tone, I wuld think Perscriptives would be the way to go. I am a light-skinned African American, by the way

i just had my foundation mixed and it cost me $62, but i have enough makeup to last 4 to 6 months depending on how it use it. i tried to go with other brands, they just don't work as well for me. i should also add that it matches my complexion exactly, they added an oil control additive, and it doesn't break me out. well worth the expense in my opinion.

I personally love Becca. MAC Studio fix was crap and it broke me out.

I have tried many - MAC, Clinique, the list goes on! I always find my way back the Prescriptives counter.
