What Do You Mean By Full Coverage Foundation?

BY Space NK

If you are new to using makeup, then you may be wondering, “What do you mean by full coverage foundation?” Put simply, full coverage foundation is buildable makeup that helps your skin look smooth and even. This type of foundation also conceals any skin imperfections. But, it’s important to remember that using full coverage foundation is definitely not about layering heavy makeup to cover blemishes and shouldn’t be used to try and change the tone of your natural skin. Used well, full coverage finishes can subtly balance out your natural skin tone and leave you with a fresh canvas. Here are the full coverage foundations we’re loving right now…
