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.

Lovely natural finish but check your colour match

I would never have tried this if I hadn't received a sample card with a few colours to try. I have oily/combination skin so anything with a dewy finish is usually not a great choice for me but this foundation has become my go-to for winter. The finish is natural and healthy-looking, especially when applied with a big oval brush. It wears well when set lightly with powder.

The shade range seems to lean very light compared to other foundation brands. I am EL 3N1 and I generally look for something medium-neutral when I'm unsure of my shade in a foundation or concealer. But my perfect match in this foundation (that I've now been using for many months) is W8 Classic Tan, which is many shades deeper than the N4/5 recommended on the NbN website.

I was a super fan of the Nude By Nature mineral powder, that is until I stumbled on this product! I have not used any other mineral powder since. It is a great product. The dispensation design is ingenious, it is more hygienic, much less messy and not as wasteful. You have to 'grind' the powder out and then apply. With a good brush this things does wonders. You can layer it if you want more coverage as well.

Good full coverage

This foundation has a thicker coverage than the other DB foundations. It gives a nice coverage when applied with their all in one brush. When combined with the hydrating foundation it has an amazing coverage.
