Discover the secrets to finding your perfect foundation coverage, formula and shade.

Foundation Guide, step 1: choose sheer, medium or full coverage.

Sheer-coverage foundation.

Evens out skin tone but won't cover acne, redness or any other discoloration.

Medium-coverage foundation.

Keeps skin looking natural and is more than enough to cover most blemishes and blotchiness.

Full-coverage foundation.

Disguises a range of skin problems from hyperpigmentation to acne scars.

Stylist tip for applying foundation.
Certain formulas are buildable. Apply layers of product to build extra coverage, or dilute with moisturizer for a lighter look and feel.
