What Foundation Does Your Favorite Model Use?

No matter who you are or what you do for a living, foundation remains one of the most difficult products to pick out. This is especially true for women with darker skin tones, as pointed out in a recent article on The story highlights several factors that make it a challenge, including the limited availability of foundations with a wide-enough range and the typically multidimensional quality of darker skin tones.
So, rather than simply ponder this conundrum, Vogue decided to get recommendations straight from the mouths of women of color who look good for a living: models. Being born with certain aesthetic advantages doesn't necessarily mean someone has good taste in makeup. But, there is something to be said for getting to work with makeup artists and trying new products all the time. We have a feeling that if anyone has figured out how to master foundation, it's these ladies.
From Jourdan Dunn's surprising drugstore pick to Riley Montana's tip for foundation that's good for oily skin, this is the kind of information that we should all bookmark, stat. Head on over to for the whole story, and let us know what your favorite foundation is. (Vogue)
