    I'd suggest the Elizabeth Arden minerals foundation. Go to the counter at Boots and ask the ladies they're so helpful.

    If you have some cash to spare I highly recommend MAC as they have an incredible range of colours.

    Fashion Fair in boots does make up for dark skin.

    Iman is also very good but on the pricey side.

    Superdrug does a range called Sleek but i dont think its available in every Superdrug and Maybelline does make up for darker skin as well.

    Happy shopping
