I’ve used Estée Lauder before, but they recently sent me in to see one of their Beauty Experts to get a customized iMatch consultation to find the right Double Wear product that suited me. Turns out, since I wanted a good coverage while not looking like I’m wearing a heavy foundation, and of course because I need something that can hold up with my job under the lights (or my job at home keeping up with three littles) without having to touch up during the day, the classic Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation fit the bill, although they have offerings all the way from Glow BB Moisture Makeup to Powder Foundation in the Double Wear line.
If you haven’t seen what it is that I do when I’m on the road yet, well, you get a little sneak peek here.
I use the shade called ‘Dusk’ and even though I only use the smallest amount, I still find myself shocked at how much coverage it provides. It’s really simple to use, I apply it with a foundation brush after putting a dime sized amount of the foundation on the back of my hand so that I’m not dipping the brush into the bottle, and then blending outward with the brush from the center of my face. Applying this way helps to avoid a demarcation line around the chin and gives coverage where color is usually most inconsistent… around the nose, etc. I also decided to give the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer a try, and apply that afterward with a concealer brush after also putting a bit on the back of my hand (using my hand almost like a painter’s pallette).
Have you used Estée Lauder or have another favorite product you love to use? I’ve been using a powder foundation for awhile now, so it’s nice to switch it up! Any tips for a new liquid foundation user?
