How to Make Our Original Loose Powder A Full Coverage Foundation

January 09, 2024

If you thought powder foundation was only capable of providing sheer coverage for those with naturally flawless skin, it’s time to think again. We’re proving how versatile our Original Loose Powder Foundation can be with the right application technique. See what we mean.



What is Full Coverage Foundation?

First, let’s define full coverage. Full coverage makeup uses highly pigmented foundation products to cover any blemishes, even out your skin tone, and actually provide an even texture, too. Full coverage makeup can be reserved for weddings, photoshoots, and big events, or you can play down the rest of your makeup and look perfectly put together for a day at the office or a night out with friends.

What’s the Best Makeup for Full Coverage Foundation?

Most people assume the best foundation for a full coverage look would be liquid. And while we’re big fans of using a buildable liquid foundation, we want to show you how a mineral powder foundation can be just as effective. Our Loose Powder Mineral Foundation comes in 30 unique shades that provide sheer-to-full coverage while promoting clearer, healthier-looking skin over time.

How to Apply Full Coverage Foundation Without Looking Cakey?

Gone are the days when full coverage makeup meant wearing heavy, cakey foundation that often did nothing to enhance your skin. Instead, we’re sharing how to apply our loose mineral powder for a full coverage look that’s luminous, bright, and oh-so-natural.

How to Apply Makeup with Foundation Brush

First things first, you’ll tip a very small amount of the product into the lid. From there, you’re going to swirl your foundation brush (we love the Beautiful Finish Foundation Brush) into the lid, picking up the product. Next, tap off any excess. Then, apply big sweeping circles across the skin as you buff the product in.

The more your buff this product into the skin, the fuller the coverage and the more luminous the finish. Have faith in the process—if you want to apply another layer, continue with very small amounts of powder. We promise, a little goes a long way and before you know it, your full coverage look is complete.

Full Coverage Foundation FAQs

If you still have questions, we’re hoping these answer a few of them.

    • What makeup foundation is best for mature skin?

Dewier formulations tend to sit better on mature skin. However, we’re fans of using what feels best to you. Whether that’s a liquid foundation, powder foundation, or something as simple as a tinted moisturizer. Feel free to play around with what you like!

    • What’s the difference between concealer and foundation makeup?

Concealer is often used to brighten and highlight specific areas of the face or to add extra coverage to blemishes, dark spots, or discoloration. Foundation, on the hand, is used to create an even skin tone across the entire face.

    • Can a powder foundation offer full coverage?

Yes. In fact, our Original Loose Powder Foundation can be built up to create a full coverage look that’s never cakey.

    • Is powder foundation good for oily skin?

Yes. Powder foundation is good for oily skin as it can help control excess shine, provide a matte finish, and keep your skin looking fresh and bright.
