What can I say but I love love love the Estee Lauder Double Wear 24HR foundation. From the moment I was given the little tester it was happiness for my skin. I am always testing out new foundations as its one of the most important makeup items for me. I love a liquid foundation that evens out my skin but still looks super natural. The finish needs to be on the dewy side and feel comfortable and this one ticks all those boxes.
What I love about the double wear stay in place foundation (R545) is that you can build up the coverage or go natural like I have done. Alternatively you can build up the coverage using a foundation brush. To ensure skin is evened out and any redness is gone. In the pic below I used a small amount with my optical bluring brush and blended out from the centre of my face. I haven’t used any concealer in this image so as to show how it looks on its own. Without makeup I have a lot of freckles/sun spots and scarring around my chin. So was super impressed with the coverage and the way my skin looked.
The foundation has been relaunched from the 15 hour to 24 hour staying power. I haven’t put it to the real test but with setting powder or a fixing spray this foundation does last the day. Its really comfortable even in hot conditions and there is a pretty large selection of shades. Its perfect for all skin types which not all foundations can boast. My skin looks healthy and radiant all day long and its half the price of my previous favourite which is amazing.
Getting the right shade is really important so get yourself down to an Edgars store and get tested with the imatch machine. I went to find my shade and then got a 7 day tester. Its best if you go without makeup on so the machine can test on your face and get the right shade. To be sure take one shade lighter as well before you make the buy. The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is an investment so you want to make sure you get it right.
