At this festive time of the year, there are many events and parties to attend and if you are looking for a foundation and powder that will keep your make-up flawless for long hours, then Estee Lauder’s Double Wear line is the solution.

Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundaton has a long lasting power. It has a lightweight, buildable formula (medium to full coverage) which will not change colour or smudge through heat, humidity and non-stop activity. It has a natural matte finish and SPF 10 sunscreen to protect your skin. It is fragrance free, oil free, non-acnegenic and it has been dermatologist tested.

There is also Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup Compact which can be used both as foundation and setting powder. It is as well fragrance free, oil free and it won’t clog your pores. It has a medium coverage and matte finish. The powder comes with the sponge, but I prefer to use it with a brush because this gives a nicer, more even finish. It is silky smooth and it feels comfortable without drying your skin.

I use this as finishing powder over the liquid foundation with great results for my combination skin as my make-up looks as fresh as when I first applied it without any touch-ups all day.
