As someone who has struggled with acne, I know all to well myself how hard it can be to find a great full coverage foundation. Many foundations seem to just highlight all the imperfections on your face, sit funny, or cost WAY more than you can afford.

No need to worry now though! Because I know first hand how your skin can impact your confidence, I've done some digging to find some affordable, but super high coverage foundations. They range from drugstore to high end, but nothing will set you back more than $42.

I'm of the opinion that foundation is an investment, but I know that it's not always possible to drop a load of money on it, so if you're in search of an affordable, high coverage product, look no further:

If you can't spare more than a few dollars, the Wet n' Wild Photo Focus is a great affordable foundation with high coverage! The formula was tested in a variety of different light settings, all of which had amazing results. You'll be looking candid all night long!

2. Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer

This foundation can be picked up at Walmart, but it's said to work just as well as some that are three times the price! It's a 2-in-1 product, meaning it makes your morning makeup routine that much faster, and it provides amazing matte coverage that lasts all day!

3. L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

Price: CAD $15.26

This foundation has been described as having coverage that is full, but not over the top. It is a matte finish, but doesn't cake up your face! It's been said to be great for people who suffer from acne, as the formula absorbs oil and keeps shine away for up to 12 hours.

4. Fenty Beauty Pro Flit'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Price: CAD $42

This is one of my personal favourites. Fenty Beauty is high end, but still affordable, and provides insane coverage! My only problem with this product is that it oxidizes quite a bit, so you'll want to be sure to go with a lighter shade when purchasing!

5. Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Breathable Foundation

Price: CAD $20.99

This foundation isn't quite as high coverage as others on the list, but it's got an amazing formula that will leave your skin looking as smooth as velvet, which is definitely what you want when going for clear skin.

6. MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Price: CAD $43

In the summer heat, you'll definitely want something that's waterproof. The product creates a totally matte, full-coverage base that will stay perfectly in place, all day long! 

7. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer

Price: CAD $36

@dilman_cosmeticsembedded via  

This is another great 2-in-1 product, for those who like to get some bang for their buck! The product comes with a giant spongey wand, which makes application beyond easy!

8. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Price: CAD $42

@venus_beautieembedded via  

People have been raving about Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation for as long as I can remember. The formula is very buildable, so you can cover everything from small acne scars to a massive tattoo! It's waterproof, and lasts up to 24 hours.

9. BareMinerals BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation

Price: CAD $42

@ajustearotaembedded via  

This foundation provides great coverage, but still feels weightless on your skin, which is exactly what you want on a hot summer day. A little product goes a long way, so the bottle will last you forever!
