my favorite full coverage foundation is Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation! It’s full coverage and seriously lasts all day/night! (Especially when paired with the all nighter setting spray!) but it’s definiely amazing even on its own. The only thing is, it does tend to oxidize, so I usually go with a shade or quarter shade lighter (they have .5 and even some .25 colors). I apply it with either a flat top brush or a damp beauty blender, although the beauty blender takes away from the full coverage IMO.
I also really like Kat Von D’s lock it foundation. It’s full coverage as well, but if you use a brush, it can be heavy. When I wear this, I use a damp beauty blender and it provides full coverage without being cakey. A little goes a long way.
As a pp mentioned, Estée Lauder double wear foundation provides decent coverage too, even though it’s not technically full coverage, but it is buildable. I used to wear this, but I have acne-prone skin and I noticed I would break out more when I would wear it, which was unfortunate, because I did like this foundation. I think it’s definitely worth a shot.
A good drugstore option I started using recently is Physician’s Formula The Healthy Foundation. Like the Estée Lauder double wear, it’s more of a medium coverage, but it’s buildable. I either wear it on it’s own, or lately I’ve been mixing it with my Urban Decay All Nighter foundation and they mix beautifully!
For concealer, I either use a light orange-tinted clay concealer by NYX when I want to cover my dark circles, or Maybelline Fit Me concealer to brighten and conceal. And sometimes I use both if I really need them! Haha
Ive mainly used Urban Decay’s primers and really liked them. They have a white one that color corrects and primes, and a pink one that blurs imperfections that I currently use. I’ve also been using these serum drops by Physicians Formula called “rose all day” under my makeup, kind of as a primer, and I love the way it makes my skin look and feel! It’s not necessarily marketed as a primer, but it works great as a primer for me!
Since I do full coverage foundation, I usually go with a lighter coverage or translucent powder just to set the foundation. But I really like any powder in the Physicians Formula line. I’ve also tried Lorac’s powder foundation that I found worked pretty well but didn’t last me that long. And I’ve also tried out Kat Von D’s Lock It powder foundation for a full coverage, and it works amazing! If I want full coverage but don’t have time to apply everything, I swipe on the powder and call it a day!
In case you couldn’t tell, you have a total makeup junkie here! 😉
