Full Coverage  
Foundations for Winter

Let’s Talk About the Struggle.

Over the past 6 years, I’ve tested way too many foundations available in the market. From drugstore to luxury brands, it has been a journey. Having completed my professional makeup certification from Pink Orchid Studio, I’ve also been able to identify key products that have proven to work for my difficult and sensitive skin.  

As someone who has always suffered with acne prone skin, eczema and scarring, a full coverage product is something I always opt in for.

During colder months, my skin tends to get even more dry, which means I need a full coverage (but not oily) foundation to work overtime. Not to mention the holiday season is upon us and we need to look good for those virtual Christmas dinner calls…right?

Below are 3 of my holy grail, full coverage foundations I’ve tested and swear by. Not only do they provide full coverage but also a flawless base that can cover anything from breakouts, blemishes and discolouration.


Winter Makeup and Foundation


Foundations Dry Skin

Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Price: $52 |  My Shade:
3W2 Cashew

This 24-hour liquid foundation promises flawless and buildable coverage, providing long lasting coverage without build-up. This foundation is definitely my go-to for everyday looks. Although this is a full coverage product, the Double Wear Stay-in-Place can be mixed with a moisturizer to provide a more sheer coverage and glowy finish.
Best applied with a stippling brush.

#FauxFilter Full Coverage Matte Foundation
Price: $54 |  My Shade: 
Tres Leches 320G


This liquid foundation is for the days I’m looking for “serious” matte coverage, especially when my skin refuses to cooperate. Admit it, we all have those days. It instantly covers all blemishes, scarring and imperfections with one thin coat. It can also be used as a concealer for a “quick fix” on the days you don’t want to apply a full face of foundation or even be mixed with your favourite moisturizer for a lighter coverage.
Best applied with a beauty blender.

Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation
Price: $80 |  My Shade: 
6.5 – Medium to Tan, Neutral

Ok, now I know what you must be thinking. How is one bottle of foundation so expensive. This creamy foundation not only seamlessly covers peeping break outs and scarring but also leaves your skin feeling as if nothing was applied in the first place. Crazy right?  I usually apply this for weddings or special events. Although described as a medium coverage product, I find the formula easily buildable with a natural glow and dewy finish. 

Best applied with a stippling brush. 

Best Foundations for Winter

We can all agree cold winter days aren’t forgiving  but that doesn’t mean your skin needs to suffer. These foundations definitely gave me that wintery glow and made flakiness a thing of the past.
