When it comes to finding the right foundation there's so much to consider – powder versus liquid versus stick, matte or dewy finish and then there's coverage – sheer, medium or full.
None of these matters however, if you can't find the perfect shade.
For too long we were subjected to an excruciatingly tone-deaf offering of colours which was usually limited to light, medium and dark, or three very similar shades of tan.
In recent years brands have started expanding their shades to be more diverse and inclusive.
Leading the pack, as per usual, was Rihanna and the launch of her line, Fenty Beauty.
With 40 different foundation shades catering to ALL skin tones Fenty sparked the beauty industry's very own makeover.
"It was important that every woman felt included in this brand," Rihanna told TIME.
"We are all so different, with our own unique skin tones, so we started with the 40 foundation shades out the gate."
It's a no brainer that Fenty is at the top of our list when it comes to brands offering the best and biggest colour ranges in foundation. Peep the cult brand plus the full list below.
