As an Indo-Canadian, I know that it can be challenging to find the perfect foundation shade to match medium-brown skin that has warm, yellow undertones. Although makeup brands globally are expanding their lines to include more medium-shade foundation options (thank you, brands), it can still be a struggle to find the exact shade that isn't too dark, isn't too pale, or doesn't gray out the natural golden glow my skin has.

After years of experimenting, I've pulled together a list of my top foundation product picks that match my skin tone and that vary in coverage, price, and ingredients. This list has become my personal go-to to share with family and friends with similar skin tones to mine — even if they are a few shades lighter or darker — and it's been proven by their praise and through my personal experience as an avid foundation-wearer.
