In South Africa, women are super loyal to their foundation. And luckily for gals in a relationship with Lauder’s Double Wear, it’s one with a lot of staying power. While yes, this make-up is classed as a long-wear type, its popularity is certainly due to its comfortable feel on the skin (no cakey foundation here girls!)
The formulation: Ok, so here’s the techie bit: microspheres act like tiny rollers when the foundation is applied so it smoothes on easily. Once applied, the base dries down to a natural, semi-matte finish with medium coverage, creating a velvety canvas for the rest of your make-up application. Oh and the best bit? As it’s non-powdery it won’t draw attention to any fine lines or wrinkles.
Try this tip: Drop a 50-cent-coin-sized amount of base onto the back of your hand, dip a clean foundation brush into it and apply little by little, blending from the centre of your face outwards.
