So it seems that after nearly two years of blogging, I still have a favourite foundation. The foundation in question and which rocks my boat is still Estee Lauder Double Wear.
After trialling tonnes of bases; some lightweight, some heavier, budget friendly and bank-breaking. BB and CC creams and powder foundations, I am still loyal to this quite frankly magic foundation.
Giving the most beautiful coverage, easy to blend and hydrating, it’s easy to see why this foundation ranks at the very top. The very first post ever to be published on BBB was showing my undoubted love for this liquid magic. Marketed as a foundation which lasts ages on the skin, this skin-perfecting formula really does. If I want something to last all day, a product that never lets me down, then this is my absolute go-to. It suits my dry skin perfectly, not clinging to dry spots and it doesn’t disappear. The first place for any fading is over the dreaded nose area, where any foundation on my skin seems to just get eaten up, but nothing a little pressed powder won’t fix.
After applying this (which by the way applies easily with a brush, fingertips or sponge), a translucent powder (I’m loving the budget friendly Miracle Matte from 17 at the moment) and a cheek product, you are set for the day. NB: Just how many brackets can I get in one sentence?!
If you are not a fan of the matte look (I’m not really either), spritz a little facial mist or a fixing spray and this will provide a more dewy glow.
Double Wear, you really do rock.
