Years ago, finding the perfect foundation to match your skin tone was a challenge, especially if you're morena. Thankfully, everything has changed now because beauty brands are more aware that the need for inclusive shade ranges is real. Shopping is easier because brands have come out with duskier and deeper colors to cater to brown-skinned girls. Here are just some morenas can turn to:

When Vice Cosmetics launched their Duo Foundations, Pinays rejoiced because 1) they're crazy affordable and 2) they included shades for morenas. They can count on this line if they want a shine-free, hulas-proof complexion.
