Dating is hard.
There is just something scary about going through the whole process of meeting someone, deciding if you like them, and then maybe seeing them again. Am I the only one who thinks this? I obsess over looking perfect, saying the right things, and just being the best version of myself. In other words, I’m neurotic.
Now… add the fact that my adult cystic acne is flaring up (read all about my struggles here) and you just add an entirely new level of stress to an already stressful (for me) situation. Not okay! I’ve been this.close to rescheduling dates because of my skin, how sad is that? Beautiful accessories and killer heels can only get me so far… I need to feel confident in my skin!
As you can imagine, I’m always on the hunt for a foundation that will give me flawless coverage and I’ve recently discovered that in Estée Lauder Stay-in-Place Double Wear Foundation. I know, I know… I might be the last person on the planet who is discovering this product but let me tell you this: It has a cult following for a REASON. That reason being the fact that it’s the bomb.
While no product on the market will hide the fact that I am having a flare up I can’t begin to tell you how much I LOVE the flawless coverage this foundation gives me. The best part is that it doesn’t look cakey in the slightest and instead melts into my skin to look completely natural and perfect. Can you believe that I don’t even have to use setting powder with the Stay-in-Place Double Wear Foundation?! I CAN’T. Instead of setting my foundation and concealer with a thick layer of powder to ensure I locked it into place I can instead just put on a light dusting at the end of my routine and you have no idea how happy it makes me.
Speaking of concealer I’ve also been giving the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Long Wear Concealer a shot and it’s just as fantastic and rave-worthy as its foundation counterpart. This concealer is creamy enough to be easily blended into the skin but hardcore enough to provide coverage that lasts all day no matter what you’ve got going on. I can even use it under my eyes without worrying about creasing… true story! It literally stays perfect all day!
When you’re almost 30 years old and experience acne flare ups a good foundation and concealer combination is essential to your survival. There is just something so insanely comforting about knowing that you can put on your makeup, look completely natural, and feel confident because your foundation will last through anything that comes your way. Did I mention that the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation lasts for 15 hours without fading, smudging, or wearing off? Yep, it’s true.
If you’re looking for a full coverage, non-heavy, perfect wearing foundation I’d definitely recommend giving Estée Lauder Stay-in-Place Double Wear Liquid Foundation a shot. I don’t think I can tell you just obsessed with it I am! Even if you’re not as neurotic as I am when it comes to dates I know you’ll be able to count on this product to provide you with the coverage you need to get you through any situation.
