6 Reasons Why We Love Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation

A good foundation is a beauty staple – a one-stop way to conceal, brighten, mattify, and perfect. Of course, there are hundreds of options available, which can make it hard to find the right foundation for you. But if its full coverage and a long-lasting formula you’re after, look no further than Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation. A true beauty icon, it’s perfect for day-to-night looks and transforming skin tones. 

Sound too good to be true? We think not. Here are just a few of the reasons why we think you’ll love Double Wear just as much as we do. 

It’s available in over 60 shades

With 61 variations to choose from, the Double Wear shade range truly has something for everyone, from light to deep and in cool, warm, and neutral undertones. 

It’s easy to find your match

Because each colour has an undertone – C for cool, N for neutral, and W for warm – it’s easy to find a Double Wear shade that perfectly matches your skin’s own undertone. If you’re not sure of your skin’s undertone, follow the handy guide below: 

Cool – Your skin has a rosy pink tone and tends to burn easily in the sun. 

Warm – Your skin has golden olive tones and tends to tan when exposed to sun. 

Neutral – Your skin is even-toned, not overly pink and not overly golden. 

It lasts all day (and night)

As its name suggests, Double Wear is designed to be long-wearing. Thanks to the oil-free formula and matte finish, and the fact that it’s sweat-, heat-, and humidity-proof, and water resistant, it can stay fresh on your skin for up to 24 hours. 

It’s got amazing coverage

Thanks to its medium-full coverage formula, Double Wear effortlessly conceals imperfections and unifies the appearance of an uneven skin tone, so skin appears calm and even. What’s more, despite its impressive coverage, the formula feels lightweight and comfortable on skin. 

It’s easy to apply

With its silky-smooth texture, Double Wear is easy to apply with foundation brush, sponge, or even your fingertips. Start by applying at the centre of your face (where redness is usually more noticeable) and then blend outwards to diffuse the pigment. Return to any areas that need a little more coverage with an extra layer. 

It’s a multitasker

Because Double Wear has such good coverage, you can even use it as concealer in a pinch. Dot a small amount onto a blemish and allow it to semi-dry before applying your foundation on top. If the blemish is still visible, apply another dot and blend it in.
