What is coverage?

Coverage is extremely important for any girl when thinking about makeup but even more important for girls like you.

COVERAGE basically refers to how thick your makeup is and the degree of transparency it affords. Therefore, if you have really bad skin with lots of blemishes and unsightly pimples then you would opt for full coverage. Here are the four types of coverage.

Sheer Cover

Very transparent and low amount of pigment. Doesn’t conceal discolourations on the skin but evens out skin tone.

Light Cover

Good for concealing unevenness and slight blemishes, but can not cover freckles. 13–18% pigment content.

Medium Cover

Covers freckles, blemishes and any marks left by pimples. Approx 18–23% pigment content.

Full Cover

Full cover is good for birthmarks, vitiligo, and even scars. 35% pigment content (and sometimes 50% if you are gonna be on television). Ful coverage is, as the video says, like a whole new layer of skin.
