Questions & Answers for Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

Question
How should I apply to get that flawless, natural look?
I bought this product in a Sephora store after a Beauty Advisor demo-ed it on me. When she applied it, it was beautiful, flawless, and natural looking. However, I can't seem to reproduce it at home. I've tried using both a foundation brush (the same one she used) and a beauty blendr sponge. The only way I can get anything close is to use powder on top, and the Advisor specifically said that I didn't need to use powder with Double Wear. Advice?

P.S.: I have really good skin already, so it's not a matter of needing more coverage. I actually went in wanting something that would look less "made-up" and just enhance my natural skin.

I use a stippling brush, it works GREAT!
And I'm going to have to respectfully disagree....I use a loose powder to set the foundation and I've NEVER had a problem with it causing the foundation to flake off. Press powder, in my opinion, can leave behind a cakey look.

I apply the foundation with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 and then apply a light dusting of the pressed powder(Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup) and I get a flawless finish. In the past I used loose powder which was a mistake, it actually breaks up the makeup and flakes off. pressed is the way to go.

I would recommend applying this product with your finger tips for a natural coverage that isn't too heavy.

There is no SPF in this foundation. However, it will look white or grey in flash photography because it still contains titanium dioxide and iron oxides.

Unfortunately, there's no SPF in this foundation. I generally like to put sunscreen on my face before I apply my make-up (especially in the summer time). That way you know you will get the sun protection you need, since depending on how much foundation you use, or where you apply it, it might not fully protect your skin.

I also find that when you, just use a little bit of this foundation, and find the right shade, you don't need to really need to worry about looking pale, but if that's a major concern, I would recommend using a highlighter and bronzer after you apply your foundation.

2W2 is more yellow, and if I remember correctly, a little darker than 2W1.

Cool bone 1n1 but if you can never find a pale enough foundation (like me) it is still too dark

The lightest color I could find in my Sephora store was cool bone. I usually do not wear the lightest color, but the next shade up in foundations. So, if you are really ivory skinned (like a pale red head), you might want to find out if EL makes something lighter than cool bone through their website. Sephora does not carry every color.

I am super pale so its really hard to find the right foundation (colour) for me. I also have acne prone skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, and some dry patches on my blemishes. I have literally tried out sooooo many foundations and I can't seem to find the right one :( Should I try this one out? I went to Sephora yesterday and the clerk suggested the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation for me so I put it on today and it's not full coverage and you can see my dry patches! Please help ugh :(:(:(:(

I use this, but I have older, combination skin. It's full coverage so it will cover your acne, but it might cake up. What about trying the Double Wear Light, which comes in a convenient tube? I often see it praised by youtubers in their 20s with acne prone skin, along with the Clinque one for blemish-prone skin. Good luck.

I also tried tart's foundation and found it did not work for me! I seem to have some of the same skin issues as you, and I truly do love the double wear. I asked for a sample and tried it for a couple days and I was sold.

Question
Color Match
I have heard wonderful things about this foundation but sadly my Sephora doesn't carry the brand. I am extremely pale (as in, I go in the sun and burn immediately) and really have issues finding a foundation that will match my complexion. As a comparison, the best match I can find is MUFE Mat Velvet in Alabaster. I have very cool undertones. Would Cool Bone be light enough for me?

The took the suncreen out of Double Wear in response to customer complaints about flashback in photos. The colors now look slightly different as a result.

Question
Which shade will best match my skin tone?
Hello I have been using Dessert Beige but I feel that this is not a good color match for me (too pinkish/orangy for my liking).

My Color IQ is 5Y05 (Naked Skin Foundation 3.0 matches my skin tone perfectly). Can you please recommend a Double Wear shade that's closest to 5Y05?

It's really hard to tell. I currently used both Dessert Beige, and Naked 3.0. I think they are really closed to each other. I, however, think Dessert Beige match my skin better than Naked 3.0. Dessert Beige, is 2N1... N represents "natural" .. So if the tone is incorrect for you, you can try 2W1 or 1W2 (warmer) OR I would recommend going to Estee Lauder booth, and get a perfect match for your skin. You can get sample to try out as well.
