Top foundations for asian skin

Finding the right foundation shade is never easy and those with a brown complexion know the struggle all too well.

There is a vast range of shades within the Asian community, made broader by varying undertones – something that beauty brands previously didn’t take into consideration. The result was often an unnatural orange finish or an ashy complexion. Luckily, things are changing and brands are finally starting to get it right by catering to all skin tones.

That's why we’re so happy to be sharing a diverse selection of foundations for Asian skin that will make you look and feel phenomenal.
