The Best Products for Medium Skintones
Sadly, so many brands today still offer limited shades when it comes to complexion products, often having a "Light, Medium, Deep" shade range, but as so many of us know, that's just not enough. There are thousands of skin tones over hundreds of countries, and there's no way we all fit into three categories. Especially for those with medium skintones, it can be so hard to find the perfect tone (not to mention undertone) for your skin, or to even find a brand that offers enough medium shades to find a match. We've built up a list of products for each category that's bound to have your shade, and if not, we encourage you to leave your HG product in the comments below!
FOUNDATION: Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r, $34
Coming from a girl with a medium skintone herself, the Fenty foundation has almost 20 shades that can be categorized as Medium, so finding the perfect shade should be easy. With a poreless, matte finish, this is the perfect foundation for full coverage lovers, and girls who only need a little bit- use a small amount on a beauty blender to create a light coverage.
CONCEALER: Cover FX Cream Concealer, $27
This concealer by Cover FX has 2 Medium ranges- Medium and Medium Deep, plus 3 shades of undertones per range. Picking up a Medium Warm and a Fair Warm will also guarantee the perfect undereye highlight shade that has the perfect undertone.
BRONZER: BECCA Sunlit Bronzer, $38
With 5 shades, this is one of the best Bronzers for darker skintones because of it's shade change as the color deepens. On lighter skintones, an ashy sheen looks better on the skin, but when it comes to tan and deeper skin, a red tone adds a more natural glow without dulling the skin, and BECCA nails this perfectly.

A book of 4 shades that are meant for deeper skintones, this Anastasia kit revolves around dusty, berry tones that are beautiful on medium skintones. These creamy powders are travel friendly, all in one palette and there's one for every look.

Take your pick from a golden champagne, Rose Gold (beautiful for warm toned mediums) and a deep gold for girls on the deeper end.
