Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation provides a natural and matte finish with buildable coverage. A matte foundation is the perfect option for when you want to look effortlessly flawless all day, however, you can mix it with other products to create different textures. If you prefer a more sheered-out look for every day, add a few drops of Advanced Night Repair Serum. This creates a radiant finish that evens your skin tone, but maintains a natural look. For a creative touch, mix a dab of foundation with a few swipes of lipstick on the back of your hand to create a cream blush. Blend it on the apples of your cheeks. For glowing skin, mix your foundation with an illuminating primer. Try any of these effects or use the foundation as a base to create more glamorous looks.
Want to know how to apply double wear foundation? The Double Wear collection includes a range of products to create a complete makeup look. With 55 Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup shades available, there’s a match for every skin tone. Find your perfect shade by identifying if your skin has cool, neutral, or warm undertones. You can create a more luminous effect by mixing your foundation with a small amount of highlighter. For the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup, try various sponges and brushes for different coverage and texture effects. When selecting your concealer shade, use a slightly lighter shade than your foundation around the under-eye area, but match your shade exactly to your foundation for uneven skin tone. To make your eyes pop, apply a darker shade of mascara to your top lashes and a lighter shade to the bottom. Double Wear eyeliners are easy to apply for precise looks but include smudger tips to blend out.
If you're wondering, what is my foundation shade? With over 55 Double Wear foundation shades available, there’s one for every skin tone. When choosing your shade, consider the natural undertones of your face. Cool undertones are rosier, while warm undertones are golden or olive-toned. Neutral undertones are not more or less pink or golden. You can filter through Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation swatches by undertone and according to light, medium, and deep shades using the foundation shade finder. If the tones of your hair, eyes, or neck don’t match well with the tones on your face, you might choose to color correct with a shade with different undertones. Our makeup formulas work for all ages. Depending on your skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dullness and more, we have regimens.
