Finding the perfect foundation is hard enough as it is — no one needs limited shade ranges to make things even worse. Luckily, thanks in part to the Fenty Effect (aka Rihanna and her 50-shade foundation collection), things are starting to change. It also took the work of outspoken customers and even internet celebrities like Jackie Aina (who partnered with Too Faced to add 11 new shades to one of its most popular foundation formulations) to really get the ball rolling.

Now, in 2019, more and more beauty brands are taking the plunge and releasing extensions for their best-selling foundations to make them more inclusive. Ahead, we've rounded up some of the more versatile foundations with shade ranges that almost everyone can enjoy a match from.
