Foundation for Asian skin

I am Indian and despite a decade of trying am yet to find a foundation that doesn't make me look orange/pink.

It seems virtually impossible to find foundation for my Indian skin which is patchy and uneven in skin tone. On top of that I have a lot of acne scarring and redness on my face.

Sometimes use MAC studio fix nc42 but its not great and v orangey after a while.. Day to day I just tend to use No7 Intelligent colour in medium even though coverage is very light with MAC select sheer pressed powder nc40 on top.

Any suggestions on what I could try next?

Saw this recently (EX1) -
No personal experience yet though, but maybe worth checking it out? They're especially for Asian skin types (and others who benefit from more yellow tone foundation etc) and their foundation promises to even out skin tone and cover imperfections.

Can't wait to try - really hope they can help you too!
