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 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.

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 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.

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.

I have both of these foundations, and seriously I adore the estee lauder doble wear the most. Estee lauder foundation it's a long wearing foundation, does not transfer to you clothes, and It has full coverage. I like the lancome foundation to, but I like the estee lauder doble wear better.
I hope these help.

lets be honest.. no makeup will be left on for 24 hrs, its ridiculous.. but i have tried ester lauder and its by far the best foundation I've tried.. i do bridals and have been using this foundation and it seriously keeps makeup on for the longest without having to retouch. According to my clients they loved it .

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 ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup would be a great option for photography! Typically products with SPF or setting products that are not blended well, will leave a white-cast in photography.
