PLEASE READ: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I AM NOT A MAKEUP PROFESSIONAL. 😉
When I was pregnant, I remember people telling me I would have “no time to get ready” or even brush my teeth every morning. Hearing this frustrated me because getting dressed and ready every morning is something I need to help jumpstart my day. A fresh face of makeup and styled hair makes me feel like a million bucks, so I swore to myself that I would at least attempt to continue this every morning after my son arrived. Well, almost 2 years later I’ve stuck to it and have managed to at least throw SOME makeup on every day. I’m a makeup girl, I just prefer it. Mainly because I look like a hot mess without it!
That being said, I’m always looking for high quality products that keep me looking fresh all day long! I recently had the opportunity to try out Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation to see if it fit the bill! I headed over to my local Estée Lauder counter and received an iMatch consultation to find my exact color. I was SO surprised at how perfect of a match it was! That rarely happens to me with my olive skin tone! The coverage is incredible, smooth, and not even the slightest bit cakey (a pet peeve of mine). I couldn’t get over how flawless my face looked. I also picked up Estée Lauder’s Matte Perfecting Primer and one of their eyeshadow palettes, which you’ll see in the video below.
I chose to do an every day makeup tutorial using the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation because it’s perfect for every day use, as well as special occasions! I don’t feel special makeup or even clothing for that matter should be saved for a special day because life is short! Enjoy it while you can 🙂 I’ve been wearing this foundation since my consultation because I can’t get enough of it. This look is pretty basic using simple makeup techniques (I promise, because again…I’m not a professional!), so I hope you enjoy it!
Also please note: I totally have a cold during this video. Hence my coughing. sniffling, BLAH. This week has been rough, so forgive me!
I really love how long lasting this foundation is…it keeps my look just as fresh in the evening as it did when I applied it! Some other great features about the product:
15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity.
Won’t change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable.
Fragrance- and oil-free, dermatologist-tested, and non-acnegenic.
Products used for the look:
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation
Estée Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer
Estée Lauder Instant Intese Eyeshadow Trio in Amber Alloy
Yellow Concealer Stick
