Best Full Coverage Drugstore Foundations

For those of you that love a full coverage foundation but don't want to spend the $30 to $40 for a high end foundation, here are some of my favorite full coverage foundations from the drugstore. Both of these foundations can be found for under $10 and are available at most mass retailers and Ulta.

If you have problems with acne and acne scarring, pigmentation issues, or just want to even out your skin tone, I recommend using a full coverage foundation. And if you have oily skin, like I do, these recommendations won't make you look overly greasy and will help control the oil a little longer. And most importantly, neither of these foundations break me out!

To make a perfect foundation, I mix these 2 foundations below together to get the perfect finish and coverage.
