Best High Coverage Foundation


One of the major problems I have while cosplaying is that my makeup ALWAYS either slides off by the end of the day, doesn't provide enough coverage or emphasises my dry skin.


What are the best high coverage foundations and concealers suitable for hot convention weather?

I recently invested in an airbrush, compressor and makeup. It covers and lasts like nobody's business! It's great! And if it's only used for cons, you don't go through it too quickly which is nice.

But other than that, I've heard good things about CC creams. Although I would go for the asian brands instead of american, because it's a pretty new product to american companies. Asian brands seem to have more reviews (because they've been around longer) so it's easier to find the right product for your skin.

Sometime you can find sample packs of Asian BB and CC creams on Amazon. It's a good way to try out several different products to see which is the best for your skin.

You might want to try a foundation from a medical makeup line, like Covermark by CM Beauty or Dermablend.

Because they are formulated to cover up medical conditions, like vitiligo and rosacea, the coverage is the best on the market, plus these makeups are most always waterproof. These foundations are pricier, though. (You get what you pay for.)

Full Coverage Foundation from Mac. I swear by it for costuming or performances. I have oily skin and I sweat a LOT in costumes and wigs, but I've never had an issue with that foundation.
I like it when you don't touch my hair - I'd prefer if you don't touch my hair - Please stay the f##k away from my hair.
