I’m not one for a full face of makeup but I’ve always worn a powder product with a hint of foundation. I used to use Clinique’s Superpowder Double Face Makeup but after grilling the makeup artist for my sister’s wedding for her recommendations I switched to Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Powder and haven’t looked back.
I like my skin to be even-toned but not caked with foundation, and I find that the Double Wear Powder does this very well. My morning makeup routine is a spot or two (or many) of concealer, apply the Double Wear Powder over my entire face, enhance my cheekbones with blush and then on goes my eye makeup. Nice and easy, and it gives a natural yet groomed finish.
I reckon the Estée Lauder product is better than it’s Clinique counterpart as firstly it lasts twice as long and I can pretty much get a year out of one compact (and that’s using it daily), and secondly, I reckon it stays on my skin longer therefore giving better coverage. At the end of the day I wipe it off using a skin cleansing wipe, splash my face with warm water and then moisturise.
There’s a range of shades and colours and you need to get a professional to match it for you.
