Makeup 101: Cushion Foundations For Darker Skin Tones

Hey, guys!

This is a post that I’ve been working on for a while. I love Korean Skincare and Makeup but I’ve noticed that they really don’t have a lot of shades to choose from for darker Skin tones which aren’t really shocking because even brands in the states are getting bashed for not being an all-inclusive brand/shade range.

As a woman of color myself, I struggle to find a Korean brand that goes further than just Golden beige, so I thought I could put together a list of Cushion Foundations and B.B Creams, that have a larger shade range to choose from.

 Laneige BB Cushion Hydra Radiance SPF 50

This is a really popular brand personally I’ve never tried their beauty cushion but it’s definitely on my wishlist.

 INNISFREE -Aqua Fit Cushion

The great thing about this cushion is that you can build your own from choosing the shade/finish, applicator sponge and even customize your own case.

Plus I’ve personally tried this cushion and it’s one of my favorite Korean cushions, perfect for the summertime very light and buildable.

 INNISFREE-Matte Full Cover Cushion

 I should mention that the actual cushion is priced at $25 and that you can buy a refill for $12 and just like the aqua fit cushion you can build your own, and customize it to your liking.

 INNISFREE- Matte Full Cover Concealer

 Okay obviously this is not a foundation but I just wanted to include this in case. Concealer always comes in handy plus Innisfree’s shade range is pretty amazing considering it’s a Korean brand.

 I hope this helps for anyone that has a darker skin tone or even a tanned skin tone. There are brands out there that offer wider shade ranges.

 Hopefully as Korean skincare and makeup get more popular and mainstream other brands will extend there shade range too.

If I’ve missed any brands please let me know in the comments.
