You need these full coverage foundations.

Sometimes, natural looking, barely there foundation just isn’t enough for the occasion (or for our mindset). Sometimes we simply need makeup that covers us up. Whether it’s covering our seemingly un-hideable blemishes or painting over our bad moods. Sometimes we just need that extra protection from the world, (honestly, we feel you).

What makes a good coverage foundation? One that covers, but doesn’t cake. One that doesn’t sweat off when we get too excited on the dance floor. One that is buildable if we need it to be. And most of all, one that rids of those spots we want to hide, or boosts the bad vibes we might be feeling. We’ve chosen a handful of foundations that accomplish all of these things. We can assure that you will be fully supported by totally flawless, covered skin all day and night long.

All Nighter Liquid Foundation by Urban Decay provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get all-night wear and a blown-out effect you never thought was possible for a flawless-looking complexion that looks amazing and stays that way. Perfect for all-night affairs and other scandalous activities, this revolutionary formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day. While Naked Skin complexion products are demi-matte, All Nighter Liquid Foundation is completely matte—but never flat (and it’s oil-free!). Urban Decay loaded this formula with an insane amount of pigment (about three times as much as Naked Skin Liquid Makeup), so a little goes a long way. There’s no need to build coverage or apply multiple layers. This waterproof, paraben-free formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin as it mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine.

Coverage Foundations are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than The Ordinary Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look that can make skin appear more aged. The texture is that of a lightweight, non-oily cream.

The pigments used in these formulations are treated for a rich, highly-saturated effect. These pigments are suspended in our proprietary spreadability system that allows pigments to look natural on the skin, resist collecting within fine lines and stay on for longer. The foundations offer a semi-matte finish and are compatible with most primers and are designed to work exceptionally well with the primers offering from The Ordinary.

Lord & Berry’s Perfect Skin foundation is designed to look and feel like skin for the most natural- looking finish. The soft-matte finish and creamy texture layer easily for medium to buildable coverage. The unique complex of Oak stem cells, Olive oil, Argan oil, Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E deeply moisturize, soothe and protect the skin. Ideal for all skin types.
