The Double Wear Duo

With the festivities over for yet another year (anyone else counting down until we can do it all over again?), I'm sure I'm not alone in noticing the affect December has had on my body. One too many late nights, a few too many lazy days and countless calories consumed way beyond that which is acceptable any other time of the year. Waistbands are being loosened the world over and for those unfortunate amongst us, the damage doesn't stop their. The not so healthy diet combined with a few alcoholic beverages can wreak absolute havoc for my skin. There is of course a posse of skincare I turn to at times like these however for instant, I can't go to work looking like a pizza, results I've been reaching for the Double Wear Duo.

Estée Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation and concealer are my high coverage duo of choice for when the signs of festive feeding need to be covered, stat. Now when going for a full coverage face, I find it best to opt for thin layers well blended to avoid the dreaded cake face. The formula of this foundation if pretty impressive so teamed with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush it's pretty hard to go OTT but it's still best to start with a light hand, you can always add more.

Buff, blend and then touch up any redness determined to peak through with concealer. Both foundation and concealer are super long lasting, even on my oily skin, so powdering isn't really required. However to be on the safe side, I usually do a little precision powdering over problem areas or more recently I've been opting for my newest love the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, but more on that another day.
