Shop Full Coverage

Foundation comes in so many types, textures and formulas these days, so it can be hard to choose the right one for you! Full coverage foundations have more opaque formulas, and are often used to disguise the appearance of pimples, imperfections and even tattoos.


Full coverage foundations are also ideal for photography and video work. Full coverage foundations can come in a range of textures including liquid, stick, cream, and pressed and loose powders, and there is one to suit every skin type from dry to sensitive to oily.


Some of our best full coverage foundations include:

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation: Designed for use in high definition film and television, this foundation has a natural, satin finish and wears all day. See why our Beauty IQ Editor Joanna loves this foundation so much here.


Also available in a stick form for easy, on the go application and touch ups.


Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup: This liquid foundation has a cult status and for good reason. Easily buildable up to full coverage, Double Wear is a foundation that lasts and lasts, even on oily skin. With a semi-matte finish, this foundation fights against humidity, heat and exercise so you stay flawless no matter what.


The Ordinary Coverage Foundation: A great option for those on a budget, this is one of two much-hyped foundations by skincare brand The Ordinary. With an extensive shade range, this foundation offers a lightweight texture with full coverage and a natural finish.

Beautiful, flawless finish!

Love this foundation! I sometimes mix this with my Giorgio Armani luminous silk and use a beauty blender to apply, I always get compliments on my skin when I do this. I find it to have more coverage compared to Luminous Silk foundation which I like. I find this foundation to be long lasting, and it seems to look nicer on my skin as the hours go on

SO gooood

Imagine the coverage of MAC studio fix and the weight of sheer coverage. This foundation covers all my blemishes, random acne and pigmentation without feeling like I'm wearing 100 layers. I really do recommend this product as it looks and feels great to wear.

Like, not love

As someone who has used the original CC+ cream but has trouble with excess oil and shine I wanted to love this matte version but it just doesn't provide the full coverage that the original CC+cream does. I can have multiple blemishes on my face that can get quite red and angry and while the original cream provides a great level of concealment on them, the matte version does not, no matter how man...
