With brands like Glossier taking a minimalist approach to makeup, we’re seeing the “no makeup makeup look” take over. And while some are loving BB creams and CC creams, others couldn’t imagine using just a barely-there foundation. Some of us prefer a little more coverage, and that’s okay. People turn to the beauty industry to look and feel like the best versions of themselves, and if you get that wearing a fuller-coverage foundation, you’re in good company—medium-to-full coverage foundations dominate Sephora’s best sellers.

Whether you’re looking to better cover blemishes or dark spots, need your makeup to last all night long, or just love a fierce finish, a foundation with more coverage is your friend.
