Hi everyone,

What foundation brands are the best for covering very bad skin? I know about MAC's full coverage, but does anyone reccomend anything else?

Thanks

Hey Shelly

Ive worked on a few makeup counters which has helped me try before I buy as we all know how expensive the best can be and how disappointing when it doesnt do what it says on the tin lol, I found that Dior foundations forever and sculpt are very good. For shoots ive also used the Ben nye concealers and foundations which i wouldnt recommend for everyday but they are amazing at covering bad skin. I have a palette that has around 12 shades which is great for my kit as it matches pretty much every skintone.
Only tried a few of the Mac foundations which i wasnt that impressed with.
hope it helps

As a make up artist myself I believe you can't go wrong with Dior spray foundation..amazing coverage..Dior airshow I think it's called...

Or dermablend concealers or foundations r amazing but don't need a lot of it..

Jane Iredale mineral foundations are great - they cover everything.  I use the pure pressed cake powder which acts as a concealer as well and is also waterproof and has spf20.   Main site is www.janeiredale.com and I think they have a link there to international distributors.

Are these foundations just good for covering pigmentation issues, or are they good for really uneven skin. I was looking for something that is thick enough to help even out skin that has acne or bumps/pits from acne.
