    inclusive makeup brands with wide range of shades for dark skin tone

    Even in India, it can be very difficult to find a foundation for skin that is rich, dark, or dusky. The lack of options is a major concern, in addition to the fact that the industry is also fueled by colorism and encourages consumers to choose foundations that are lighter than their skin tone. Finding the appropriate undertones is quite difficult because there are so few options available. When it comes to catering to skin with melanin, the majority of brands that are fairly inclusive by Indian standards still have a long way to go. Take a look at these brands that are contributing to giving dark skin a huge range of products:
