Finding the right foundation is probably one the hardest things to do when it comes to securing your make-up essentials. I have personally tried and tested over 10 different foundations with each having their faults. But I have finally found my Holy Grail Foundation. At £27.50 for a 50ml bottle many would cringe at the price tag. But Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation has an lightweight and matte formulation which creates an unique look on the skin. The product promises to “stay-in-place” for up to 12 hours and provide a SPF 10 sun protection.
From personal experience I can definitely say that the product lives up to its promises. The foundation stays on my skin throughout the day and keeps it looking fresh with its matte finish. I couple this foundation with MAC Prep and Prime and Mac Mineralized Skinfinish Natural to give the foundation that extra boost to stay in place all day and into night.
With regards to application, you can use a foundation/stippling brush or my preferred method is to use my fingertips. Using your fingertips helps to blend the foundation in evenly and the added warmth from your fingers stops any streaks occurring.
This foundation comes in over 20+ shades and is perfect for all skin tones and types. I often struggle with redness on my cheeks and this foundation covers it perfectly without feeling like I have caked it on.
