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.

Nice finish

Perfect shade for medium to neutral tone skin with a touch of colour . I have previously used shade NW25 and found it a little yellow/dark but ok when I'm tanned . Easy to glide on the skin and leaves a nice semi matte finish . Foundations with an SPF I usually find a little heavy but not this one
