6 Foundation Lines With Great Shade Ranges For All Skin Tones

Finding your perfect foundation can be a pain but these brands hopefully make it a little easier.


Here is a fact: Finding the perfect foundation shade for your skin tone is hard! Many of us have spent hours in Sephora or Ulta testing all types of foundation on your hand looking for the perfect match.

But what is even worse than the long process of finding a foundation is not being able to find a matching shade in a foundation that you really want to try because the shade range for the product is super small. Humans come in all different sizes, shapes, and colors. They are all beautiful and it is about time that brands start recognizing this.

Lately, brands have been taking steps to be more inclusive by broadening their shade ranges when making makeup products. While nothing can ever be 100% perfect hopefully one of these brands has a shade for you.

1. NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation has 33 different shades. It is said to last 16 hours and has a natural, radiant finish.

2. Fenty Beauty PRO FILT'R Foundation

Rihanna's makeup line, Fenty Beauty, launched last year and it instantly became a best seller. Her PRO FILT'R foundation is described as a long-wearing soft matte. The foundation line comes in 40 different shades which is truly amazing! To find your truest shade make sure you give the foundation some time to dry down when testing the different shades out.

3. Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation

The Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation has 29 different shades. The foundation is supposed to give a youthful look, has 24-hour long wear, and flashback free SPF-25.

4. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

The Too Faced Born This Way Foundation has 35 foundation shades. They recently released nine new shades to expand their shade range. To accomplish this, the brand partnered with YouTuber and beauty influencer, Jackie Aina.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
