REVIEW: Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation!


So I am not going to be saying very much about this foundation in this blogpost because I have a complete video review for you guys which I have linked to at the bottom of this post! I just wanted to tell you guys how *in love* I am with this foundation, it photographs beautifully, is compatible with ALL skin types (even dry skin like my own), and it is light enough to wear everyday! Overall, I am so pleased with this foundation that I had to share it with all of my lovely followers.

Below are a few pictures throughout one of my days wearing this foundation, and lemme just tell you that this was not a day of laying around doing nothing. I went NONSTOP from 630am until 7pm, and here are a few photos to show you how the foundation held up. These photos were all taken in natural light (which explains why it looks very very different in every photo). Hope you enjoy!



1 fl. oz. for $37
My color: Intensity 2.0
2 hours of wear

7 hours of wear

12 hours of wear (obviously my concealer didn't hold up as well as my foundation haha)

The Easiest Smokey Eye *EVER*

I wanted to share this look with you guys because it is so simple and quick, and the star product that I would highly highly *HIGHLY* recommend to achieve this look is only $4!! How crazy is that? The eyeliner and mascara can absolutely be subbed for any product that you prefer, but the Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Pencil is pretty much the greatest thing since sliced bread. No joke. Super creamy and blendable, but when that baby sets...it is set! It will not move throughout the day, and you can take that to the bank hahaha! But in all seriousness, I highly recommend the Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Pencils because they are simply to die for.

Hope you enjoy the video! Don't forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE:)

Products Used:
NARS Pro Prime Pore Refining Primer
It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination - Medium
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eyes - Neutral Medium
BareMinerals Concealer - Well Rested

Benefit Box Powder - Hervana
Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner -
Benefit BeneBalm
Urban Decay Primer Potion (off camera)
Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick - Bad Girl Bronze
Wet N Wild Megalast Retractable Eyeliner - Black (I do not recommend this because it was not soft at all, very difficult to work with, and it was just a waste of money. You could definitely substitute this for any black eyeliner that you own!)
