Re: Full coverage foundation

Hi there @mbostic,

I'm going to recommend to you the products that have helped me achieve a flawless, matte, full coverage face for some years now. I, too, have oily skin so I know the struggle! I have linked everything down below for you for easier access. Good luck!


Step 1- Ole Henricksen's Oil Control Hydrator (to moisturize)

Step 2- Becca's Ever-Matte Primer- follow the directions so the primer doesn't clump!

Step 3- Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation- use a damp beauty blender to blend and smooth out the foundation evenly all over your face.

Laura Mercier Translucent powder- set your foundation with this with a large velour puff or with the tip of the beauty blender by stamping the powder into the foundation.

Urban Decay All Nighter or De-Slick spray- set your whole face with a few spritz of this setting spray and you should be good to go all day!

@mbostic   You've received some great advice from @gonerogue


I also totally agree with the recommendation of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation - it is my holy grail! 


I am also totally in love with the Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray and Laura Mercier setting powder (or Cover FX).  


My favorite primer, though, is NARS Pore & Shine Control.


Good luck - Hope these tips help! ❤️
