Preparing for a professional event always turns my stomach into knots. I always want to convey my best self to those that I work for, with, and admire. I was taught at an early age that first impressions matter, and it’s a lesson that I cling to even now. I always want to present myself in the best light. The worst part about preparing for an event is never getting my business cards ready, or my spare phone battery charged and tucked away, it boils down to getting my makeup right. I’m always on the hunt for a products that are perfect for my skin – a product that will stay put long past the last introduction. Since the first moment that I tried Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Makeup, I knew I had finally landed on a winner, and since then I have been utterly impressed!
I’ve never been sold on getting professionally color matched to a foundation. I always thought that I was good judge of my skin tone. Boy was I wrong. Getting an iMatch consultation from Estée Lauder was probably the best idea ever. Cleansing away some of my BB cream, “this” said my Estée Lauder consultant, brandishing a now sullied cotton pad at Macy’s Herald Square, “is far too light for your skin tone”. I bit my tongue until she applied Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation in Dessert Beige.
Peering in to the offered mirror I was shocked at how ridiculously perfect the coverage was – I had a bright red breakout, and it was completely indiscernible under the foundation! My sister, who was with me, was equally impressed and as a belated birthday gift I bought her the Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup that she was perfectly matched for herself! The foundation itself is so light, and only a little is needed for sufficient coverage. It doesn’t look or feel like it’s “pancaked on” and my skin looks so even and fantastic that I’ve been reaching for my Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation on a daily basis.
I’m so sold on the Double Wear line, I’ve already returned to Macy’s to get my other sister and mom matched as well. With birthdays and Mother’s Day coming up, I know that a couple products from Estée Lauder would be definitely well-received!
While at Estée Lauder’s in Macy’s I also picked up their Matte Perfecting Primer, Foundation Brush, and Advanced Night Repair serum as part of a promotion for only $10! They always have different promotions going on, which is partly why I love them so darn much! I definitely recommend getting iMatched. Unlike many brands, Estée Lauder’s Double Wear line features a wide range of skin tones (which is fantastic!), so you definitely want to land on the shade that is really the very best one for your skin tone.
With my new, perfectly matched, foundation I know that I am really putting my best face forward. I don’t have to worry about sweating off my makeup or get stressed about how well my foundation is staying put as I travel from event to event. You know when you feel so impressed and so happy about a product that you simply can’t stop talking about it? Well, that’s where I am right now. I’ve gotten so many compliments on my “skin” recently that it’s just blown me away.
