Is it just me, or is it super hard to find the perfect foundation shade? 

Personally, I know how hard it is to find the perfect yellow-undertone shade for my olive skintone. I know that i'm not the only one that has a very specific shade when it comes to foundations and that's why I've put together this article!

If you have very light skin, deep and beautiful dark skin, or maybe you have a pink undertone, it can be really hard to find that perfect shade of foundation. It's the worst feeling when go to your favourite brand that only has 10 foundation shades, get colourmatched, only to come home and find out that it's three shades too orange.

We don't want you to have that horrible experience where your face doesn't match your neck... So here are 11 make-up brands that carry 40 (or more😏) shades of foundation.
