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 got this applied at the sephora store and most of the staff recommend fingers! More control and much easier to blend.

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 have dry skin and I loooove this foundation. I also have some acne issues and the coverage of this product is more than great!! I don't even have to use concealer anymore, except for under my eyes because I like the brightening effect. My skin is very pale as well. When I was matched for this foundation, the sales associate recommended the shade ivory nude to me and personally, I like the shade on my skin tone. Try this foundation out. I can easily say that it's my favorite foundation out there!

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.

Question
Clingyness
I have pale, combination/acne prone skin. I was going to buy this foundation because I desperately need something that will cover my acne and redness without making me look like a huge whitehead. I'm planning to go on Accutane in the next few months because the pills and creams are not working. I fully expect Accutane to dry my skin out completely and my skin will surely get dry and flakey. So, does this foundation cooperate with flakey, dry skin? Does it cling to dry patches?

Unfotunately this foundation is very matte and can cling to dry patches. However, try applying it with a damp sponge (doesn't have to be a beauty blender, you could try the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge). I have dry skin and I wear this foundation all the time using a sponge. It applies pretty easily, especially with a sponge, I recommend dabbing on powder with a sponge or brush instead of buffing it or dragging it on your skin if your skin is dry, it'll help set the foundation over it without disturbing it.

Hi I was on Accutane years ago. When I was 17 to be exact and I am now 35. This was the only foundation I wore back then, and now it’s even better (more colors, better consistency) I have some severe dry patches around my nose. Apply the foundation with a wet beauty blender as it will be less drying. Use your fingers to apply in areas where you need more coverage. If you find the foundation to drying, mix it with a bit of your face cream, or a little bit of a BB type foundation. I completely recommend this foundation because it will not cause or irritate your acne. It will also do a good job at covering any scars you currently have. Best of luck to you, and hang in there!

This foundation works best on combination to oily skin. This foundation has a very matte finish and will cling to dry patches. If you want to try something that has full coverage, but has less of a matte finish, we recommend trying Estee Lauder's Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup>http://bit.ly/1xhVKeS.

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.

answer 3
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.

Please help me find the correct shade for my skin tone
My Sephora does not carry Estee Lauder and I have been wanting to try this foundation so unfortunately I couldn't get a color match. My color shade for Nars sheer matte is Stromboli and for Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation I use Medium Sand. Which shade would I be in the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation?

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.
