If you’re blessed with an even skin tone, you should opt for a sheer coverage foundation. Sheer coverage foundation is a transparent foundation which gives the least amount of pigment. It will just brighten up your complexion and not hide any flaws or scars on the skin.

Sheer coverage foundations are lightweight foundations which contain the least amount of pigment. The content of pigment in a sheer foundation is not more than 8 per cent. Some sheer foundations also come with 8-12 per cent pigmentation rate, which means they can cover uneven patches and slight scars on the face.

Sheer foundations give you a naturally glowing skin and won’t leave you with cakiness. They glide on the skin easily and also make your skin look beautiful. Even a thick coat of sheer foundation will leave you with a naturally glowing skin.

Sheer foundations are generally suitable for women with normal to dry skin. They won’t settle into the lines and also work well on mature skin. Sheer foundations come with SPF at times, hence they can keep your skin protected.

Some of the best sheer foundations are:

Becca Sheer Stick Foundation SPF 30

Full coverage foundation is a highly pigmented foundation which can cover scars, pimples and dark spots on the face. If you want your makeup to last for a longer period of time and also cover dark patches on the skin, full coverage foundations are the best. Full coverage foundations are extremely helpful for those with uneven skin too.

Full coverage foundations can cover imperfection easily, thus giving you flawless and glowing skin. Some full coverage foundations are so highly pigmented that you won’t need any concealer to conceal dark spots, dark circles or patches on your skin.

Full coverage foundations also come with SPF properties, so they protect your skin from harmful UVB rays; most of them also do not clog your pores. A small quantity is enough to brighten up your skin if you’re using a full coverage foundation. These are available in liquid as well as powder format, hence you can easily choose one as per your skin type.

Some of the best full coverage foundations are:
