From foundations and concealers with limited shade ranges to highlighters that can appear to chalky on the skin, it often seems as though there aren't enough products out there that were formulated with deeper skin tones in mind. That said, when it comes to eyeshadow palettes, there are a ton of options out there that not only include some of the most stunning matte and shimmery shades, but they also perfectly complement those with darker complexions.

"If it passes the swatch test where it [feels] buttery and not powdery to the touch, then it's good in my book."
