7 Best Dark Skin Foundations that Wont Break Your Budget

7 Best Dark Skin Foundations that Won’t Break Your Budget

We know how expensive even the most basic beauty products can be, so with this post, we’re starting a new feature that will bring my readers beauty products that don’t break the budget. I call it “Beauty and the Buck” 🙂

I remember back in the day, when you couldn’t find a suitable foundation to save your life if you had darker skin (been there).

Now, darker skin makeup isn’t all that difficult to find, but many times they’re so expensive it’s insane.

That said, I went searching for foundation for darker skin that isn’t ridiculously pricey to share with my readers 🙂

Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation

Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation
