The Best Foundation And Concealer Combos You Need To Buy

Ever been in a situation where your favorite foundation doesn’t work with a concealer that you recently bought? Well don’t go trap into the advertisements and ruin your makeup texture by combining completely different products altogether.You should always be careful when buying skin and makeup products for yourself, especially foundation and concealer as they are the foundation of your makeup look and they decide whether the look will be flawless or cakey. 

No worries, there is a heavenly foundation and concealer combo that you can use to achieve that glowy and flawless makeup look. The combos we have tried helped us ditch all our products that we used to use separately so we can finish them and never buy again, and a plus point is that they don’t make our skin patchy or cakey even if they are full-coverage foundation and concealer.

Must-Try Foundation And Concealer Combos

Out of many foundation and concealer duos we have tested and tried on ourselves, we have picked the best ones that's suitable for everyone and every skin tone.

Full Coverage Combo

I prefer using products that provide full coverage, and this duo works wonders for me.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Foundation

Fenty Beauty's Pro Filtr Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is the ideal foundation for combination skin type. With just a small amount, it gives a matte, full-coverage base that's perfect for when you want to apply a full beat without appearing cakey. To add some radiance to my under eyes and high points on my face, I pair it with Charlotte Tilbury's Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer, which complements it perfectly. I usually select a slightly lighter shade than my skin tone to brighten my appearance and enhance the glow that this concealer offers.

Long Lasting Combo

If you're looking for a foundation and concealer combo that will give you a filtered look, you can't go wrong with this duo from Huda Beauty.

The foundation has a matte finish and is resistant to water, transfer, fade, sweat, and humidity. Plus, it contains green tea to help improve the appearance of discoloration and stress. The creamy formula is perfect for those who want to achieve a flawless base without looking cakey.

Hydrating And Weightless Combo

Another go-to foundation that I use is the Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Serum Foundation. It provides medium coverage and gives off a natural, radiant glow.  I love that it's infused with jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and olive-derived squalane, which make it really hydrating on the skin.

To complement it, I use Sephora Collection's Best Skin Ever Full Coverage Multi-Use Concealer, a liquid concealer that provides full coverage. It does a great job of hiding any dark areas, and I appreciate that it feels lightweight and moisturizing, thanks to ingredients like hyaluronic acid and algae extract.

Best Combo For Covering Up Scars

As someone who has dealt with extreme acne for years, having a good base routine is incredibly important to me. Even though my skin is pretty clear now, I still like to have medium coverage to keep my acne scars hidden. However, being on the combo to the drier side means that foundation tends to look cakey or bunchy as the day goes on.

Kosas Revealer Foundation

Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer

That's why I love the Kosas Revealer Foundation, it glides right on and gives me enough coverage to conceal my discoloration without feeling heavy. Plus, it has a pretty glowy finish that stays put all day. I have a few concealers that I really like, but my absolute favorite is the Hourglass Airbrush in Creme.


When it comes to finding the perfect foundation and concealer combo, it's all about finding products that work with your skin type and provide the coverage you need. These foundation and concealer combos offer medium to full coverage without feeling heavy or cakey, and the concealer is great for buffing away imperfections. Keep these products in your makeup bag for flawless, natural-looking skin every day.
