Fit for a Queen: Three Tips for Complete Coverage the COVERGIRL Way


When putting your best face forward, it all starts with the foundation. Finding the right shade and texture is not only important for presenting a flawless canvas but also for setting a base you can properly build upon with your favorite blushes, bronzers, and other beauty finds. Luckily, easy, breezy, and beautiful just got better.

COVERGIRL is changing the way we face the world with its Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation, a lightweight formula that renders radiant results. It packs the power of a concealer, foundation, and powder in one, with enough SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Plus, as with all products in the Queen Collection, it’s made specifically for women with darker skin tones who have trouble finding a perfect foundation match. Best of all, it’s 3-in-1 formula limits the amount of coverage you need, so you don’t have to worry about clogging your pores and jeopardizing the integrity of your skin underneath. After all, foundation shouldn’t cover up your skin—it should perfect it.

Once you’ve armed yourself with the right Queen Collection 3-in-1 shade, follow these three steps for a natural look.

  1. Prime your face. What good does a great product do if it’s slathered on dirty, flaky, dry skin? A cleansed, exfoliated, and moisturized face is the only kind to which you should apply foundation—and any type of makeup. Adding a silicone-based primer to the mix will ensure that you get longevity from your foundation.
  1. Use the right amount of product. This formula is lightweight for a reason, and as the old adage goes, less is more. Apply a small amount of the foundation to a sponge or clean fingers, and dab it onto your cheeks, blending outward toward your hairline.
  1. Set your makeup with a finishing powder or spray. Just as you wouldn’t leave the nail salon without a topcoat on your precious fingers and toes, don’t skip out on this final step. A translucent setting powder acts like a veil to set your look, while a finishing spray can give you a dewy finish that’ll have you turning heads.
