What does “full coverage” mean?
When you see “full coverage” on a foundation’s packaging, this means the formula contains a higher concentration of pigment to offer a greater degree of coverage. Dermablend’s full coverage foundations are formulated with high-performance pigments that deliver a smooth, even finish without looking heavy or cakey.
Does full coverage foundation make acne worse?
Many people with acne worry that anything they use on their face—whether skincare or makeup—will make breakouts worse. Rest assured that all of Dermablend’s products are non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic, which means they will not clog pores or cause acne blemishes.
Can I wear full coverage foundation if I have sensitive skin?
You can absolutely use full coverage foundation if you have sensitive skin—as long as it’s the proper formula. All of Dermablend’s products are fragrance-free, dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested and sensitive skin-tested so you can enjoy a flawless finish without worrying about irritation. Those with sensitive skin often prefer a full coverage foundation with a weightless feel, and Dermablend’s flawless creator liquid foundation drops offer buildable coverage that you can control based on the number of drops you use. With only 10 ingredients, this lightweight liquid formula is ideal for sensitive and delicate skin.
Which full coverage foundation is best for dry skin?
A full coverage foundation for dry skin should include moisturizing ingredients, and a liquid formula can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best. If you have dry skin, it’s best to start with a hydrating primer such as Dermablend’s insta-grip jelly primer for extra moisture that helps full coverage foundation go on smoothly and evenly. Follow with flawless creator liquid foundation drops or smooth liquid camo hydrating foundation, which contains glycerin for 24-hour hydration and provides up to 16 hours of smudge- and transfer-resistant wear (when topped with setting powder). You can also use our aloe-infused power-setter 2-in-1 makeup setting spray to refresh and hydrate your skin throughout the day.
How should I apply full coverage foundation?
The best application technique depends on the full coverage foundation formula you choose. When using a liquid foundation like flawless creator, it’s best to use a blending sponge with a tapping motion to build your desired level of coverage. If you prefer a cream foundation, such as our cover creme, warm the product with your fingers and gently tap it into the skin. For powder foundation, use a sponge applicator to build full coverage.
For optimal results, always prep the skin with a hydrating primer and wait about one minute before applying foundation. Using a color-correction product (such as our quick-fix color correcting powder pigments) can help you get a jump-start on full coverage by neutralizing appearance of undereye circles, redness, dark spots and other discoloration before you even reach for the foundation.
