For running errands, heading to class, or a day at the office, a lightweight foundation may be all you need. But when a special occasion rolls around, or you’re dealing with unsightly breakouts, a full-coverage foundation could be calling your complexion’s name. Since you never know when you might need a little extra coverage, it's a good idea to always keep a formula that can cover anything on hand. Rather than having to turn to Google in search of the best full-coverage foundation for oily skin and dry skin, we’ve done the work for you. And no, a foundation that will give you an instantly flawless complexion doesn’t have to break the bank! Below, we’re sharing our best full-coverage drugstore foundation along with a step-by-step tutorial on how to use it.
Allow us to introduce you to the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation, our best full-coverage foundation for dry and oily skin types. Formulated with high-load pigments, this foundation offers total, flawless coverage that feels fresh and lightweight on your skin. The formula has a natural finish that blends instantly to cover dark spots, blemishes, scars, and hyperpigmentation, creating the perfect canvas for flawless makeup application. Need we say more?
Now that you know about our secret for instantly flawless skin, you may be curious as to how to put it to use. Follow the steps below to learn how to use full-coverage foundation as part of your next makeup look.
The first step of any makeup look should be to apply makeup primer. This will help create an even canvas for the rest of your makeup, as well as keep it from fading throughout the day (or night). Smooth on the L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base to get the perfect skin texture. The lightweight formula glides onto skin and minimizes the look of pores and fine lines.
Bring out the full-coverage drugstore foundation! To apply it, we recommend using a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. First, dot the lightweight formula onto your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Then use the makeup sponge to buff and blend it out using a soft bouncing motion. Hello, seamless skin!
Sure, your skin looks flawless, but you’ll still want to add some definition to define your features! Use an angled face brush to apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks, sides of your nose, jawline, and temples.
Next up: blush! After all, what’s a perfect complexion without a bit of color? Pick your favorite shade from the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush collection and brush it across the apples of your cheeks.
The last face makeup product on our list? Highlighter. Just as you emphasized your facial structure with shadows when contouring, you’ll want to emphasize the high points of your face by adding radiance. Use a tapered highlighter brush to dust the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder onto your cheekbones, tip of your nose, and cupid’s bow.
We’re not done just yet! Flawless skin calls for flawless eyebrows, don’t you think? That’s where the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Micro Ink Pen by Brow Stylist, Up to 48HR Wear comes in. Place the comb tip at the front of your brow and brush upward and outward toward the tail, building as you go until you’ve perfected your brows.
With a face as faultless as yours, you’re sure to want it to stay that way! Finish your full-coverage foundation look with a few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray for a just-applied makeup look that won’t budge.
While full-coverage foundation can come in handy, there are times where you’ll want something a bit lighter. Check out our article, How to Wear Foundation with Light or Sheer Coverage, to get the 4-1-1.
