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.

Product itself is lovely, but packaging no good.

I normally wear the asap mineral powders but I purchased this liquid one recently to try it for the first time. I think the product itself is absolutely devine for a lightweight foundation. It feels silky smooth on my skin and has fairly light coverage which is fine for everyday at work but I use a little mineral powder over the top too if I want fuller coverage.
But the pump bottle it comes in is horrendous for a product in this price range. It apparently has an airless pump so every time it stops working you have to bang it on a hard surface to get the pump working again. I just gave up and took the top off and tipped the product into my hand. Not ideal.

Ticks all the boxes

This is definitely my pick of foundations at the moment. I can't stop my skin from getting oily throughout the day but with this I need far fewer touchups than with my previous foundation. Great colour match and excellent coverage without looking caked on. One pump is the perfect amount - plus it's cruelty-free which is an absolute must for me. Not to mention the incredible low price point! Why buy anything more expensive, this does it all.

Great mineral foundation

Great mineral powder. Especially for the price. Nice soft powder, light coverage. Great for setting foundation. Was using nude by nature but have replaced with this.
