Of all the beauty products in the world, full-coverage foundation is, without a doubt, the hardest for makeup brands to get right. There, we said it. But it’s only because it’s the truth. Too often, coverage is valued over texture or finish (not to mention an inclusive shade range), resulting in a final product that conceals everything, but ends up looking like a cakey, dried-out mask.
That being said, there are myriad of brands — such as Huda Beauty and Make Up For Ever, to name just a few — that have managed to strike the perfect balance between a high-coverage, yet still hydrating and natural-looking formulas that are great for all skin types, including oily skin and dry skin.
So we’ve compiled a list of editor-approved full-coverage foundations that not only get the job done but do it beautifully. But enough chit-chat. Ahead, find 19 foundations you can shop on Amazon, Sephora, Ulta, and more than cover up blemishes, hyperpigmentation, acne scars — you name it.
