The Best Full-Coverage Foundations That Can Conceal Anything


Calling all opinionated beauty lovers: We want to know which products you can’t live without! Take our annual poll to pick the top hair, makeup, nail, and skin-care products that deserve our coveted Readers’ Choice seal.

Of all the beauty products in the world, full-coverage foundation is, without a doubt, the hardest for makeup brands to get right. There, we said it. But it’s only because it’s the truth. Too often, coverage is valued over texture or finish (not to mention an inclusive shade range), resulting in a final product that conceals everything, but ends up looking like a cake-y, dried-out mask. That being said, there are myriad brands — such as Kevyn Aucoin, Huda Beauty, and Make Up For Ever, to name just a few — that have managed to strike the perfect balance between a high-coverage, yet still natural-looking formula. So in the name of solidarity and all that, we’ve compiled a list of editor-approved, time-tested full-coverage foundations that not only get the job done, but do it beautifully.

Enough chit-chat — ahead, find 22 foundations that cover up blemishes, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, you name it.
