Three things are essential about how your skin looks at the Christmas day. Your skin should be flawless, glowing and natural. In a quest to discover foundations that performs better than my last one, I stumbled upon a well talked about foundation in the beauty realm – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place MakeUp in the shade 2.
For this time of the year, I couldn’t be happier with the results. Let me describe this beauty in technicalities.
Estee Lauder Double Wear is a full coverage foundation. It is not heavy or uncomfortable by any means for the results it provides. I am unsure about it staying till 15 hours, as I’ve only used it for max 10 hours and this product hasn’t disappointed me one bit. In fact, on my good days, I can just use this without any concealer. The formula has been changed but I will not draw comparisons, as I have only tried the new one, which works perfectly for my combination skin.
Since it’s a cream based full coverage foundation, the best application has been with a buffing brush or a stippling brush. I’ve also used a Beauty Blender to sheer it out and that works on days you can survive without good coverage. My favourite has definitely been the combination of a stippling brush. The application is very smooth without the foundation clinging on any dry patches and the finish is quite flawless.
In all fairness, I would recommend no one to use a foundation brush with this foundation, as if you are not light handed, this can be a bit much and even look cakey with no fault of the product.
For this look, I have also used my Bobby Brown corrector in medium beige with YSL Touche Eclat highlighting concealer in the number 2.
That completes this look!
