There’s been a growing demand for concealers with wide shade ranges. YSL Beauty recently drew flak for releasing only six concealer shades. The darkest shade, Mocha, didn’t even match the black woman’s arm in the swatch photos.
Just like foundations, it’s now important for brands to be inclusive in their concealer selection. Although some brands won’t always have the exact shade for your skin tone, you also have to remember that concealer must be one shade lighter. It’s all about finding one that complements your skin’s undertone.
