Even though there are hundreds of brilliant beauty brands out there, the shade matching issue is widespread, with a recent survey by EX1 Cosmetics indicating that 90% of people with olive skin still struggle to find the right foundation for their skin type. Luckily, though, companies are listening to consumers and expanding their shade ranges to meet the need.
