Brown skin is beautiful and to compliment this beauty there are many foundations made specifically for the varying tones that brown skin comes in. You can find a drugstore foundation, or department store brand to suit your need for flawless-looking skin.
Below is a list of some of my favorite foundations for brown skin. All of these foundations vary in price so there is something out there for everyone’s budget! I hope you’ll give one or more of these brands a try because they work incredibly well with all types of brown skin!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Foundation Makeup
This long-lasting matte foundation is perfect for all skin types, especially dry or oily brown-skinned beauties. The foundation has a flawless finish that almost looks like velvet when applied to the face. It is ideal for people who require serious coverage, but it can be sheered out for lighter wear.
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup
This lightweight texture of this powder foundation works amazingly well with brown skin and leaves behind a beautiful sheer matte finish that allows your real beauty to shine through! The staying power isn’t too great though so it will require powdering or setting after application. This foundation works best if applied with a damp sponge instead of a brush because brushes don’t give you enough control over where the product goes on your face and can leave behind streaks.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick
If you need a foundation with serious coverage, this is the one for you. This stick allows you to apply for heavy or light (sheer) coverage in whichever areas of your face that need it most. It can be used all over or in targeted areas like around the nose and mouth, where we tend to get oily and break out more frequently.
Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation
This moisturizing stick foundation is amazing for combination/oily skin or people who get shiny throughout the day. It leaves a soft matte finish that is not too drying on the face. The buildable coverage makes it easy to use all over your face if desired, but this foundation also works well in targeted areas around the nose and mouth where we tend to get oily.
Almay Smart Shade Foundation
This line of foundations from Almay has more shades available than some other drugstore brands so you are sure to find one that suits your complexion perfectly! I love these foundations because they even out my skin tone without making me look flat or dull-they give my body luminosity which is super rare when you’re trying to find a dark shade with medium coverage.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24h Foundation
This foundation from Lancôme will last all day long. It is a buildable medium to full coverage foundation with a satin matte finish that is great for normal to oily skin types. The thing I love most about this foundation is it has a wide variety of shades available, so there is something out there for everyone!
Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
This foundation has a wide shade range and gives the skin a radiant finish that is not too dewy or matte. This foundation can be sheered out for lighter wear, or built up for more coverage. It’s great for people who need something with medium to full coverage but don’t want anything too drying on their faces.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
This foundation boasts antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, for a fresh dewy finish that is perfect for all skin types. The foundation leaves behind a satin to a matte finish that can be sheered out for lighter wear or built up for more coverage. This foundation with flawless coverage and a brightening effect that will make you look like you’re glowing from within.
