Wedding Makeup // Estee Lauder DoubleWear Foundation
The Wedding Makeup I will be talking about today is the Estee Lauder DoubleWear “Stay-In-Place” Foundation.
Why this is great for a wedding:
Estee Lauder DoubleWear Foundation is perfect for a wedding day because like it’s name it really does stay in place. It won’t budge in the heat or humidity, or nonstop activity. It is a medium to full coverage foundation that isn’t heavy and actually lets your skin breathe. It also looks really great in pictures which is a MUST for wedding day. I have really oily skin (if you didn’t know already) and if I wear this for a long time it does end up getting a bit oily, but it doesn’t look bad like other foundations, it’s very easy to blot away the excess oil and your makeup will look just as flawless as before. It really does stay in place! It also makes other things such as blush, bronzer/contour, and highlighter lay beautifully on top of the foundation.
It comes in a nice glass bottle, but
WITHOUT a pump. I hate having to pour foundation out instead of pumping it out, it feels like you are wasting so much more product. You can actually buy pumps for this foundation, I just haven’t done that yet. It comes in 31 shades, so I’m pretty certain there is something for every skin tone.
Price and Where to Buy:
This foundation is $37 and in my opinion 100% worth it for your wedding day. If you aren’t getting married but really want a foundation that will not budge with the summer heat, this is your girl. This foundation can be found at your local department stores at the Estee Lauder Counter, or online at Sephora (not available in stores). I recommend getting color matched for this foundation, especially if you are wearing it on your wedding day.
How I apply this:
I typically apply this foundation with a damp Beauty Blender, dabbing it all over my face until completely blended. Applying it with a BB gives it the most flawless finish.
So there you have a closer look at Estee Lauder’s DoubleWear Foundation, this foundation is pretty much a cult favorite and I can definitely see why. It’s brilliant. I hope this post was helpful to you! Stick around for the rest of the series!
