I received complimentary product from Estée Lauder through Condé Nast. All opinions are my own.
That past month has been a bit of a roller coaster...I spent 10 days in South Africa, wearing shorts and tank tops, with my hair in a bun and zero make up - it just didn't seem worth it to get all glammed up for the elephants and leopards, you know? Then I arrived home with a toothache, which turned out to be an abscess, which resulted in not one, but FOUR different trips to the dentist for a root canal. Then it was off to Los Angeles for the Avengers Age of Ultron press junket...where I sat down with Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.
That? Yeah, I definitely got a bit glammed up for!
I am a pretty low maintenance chick, so I like to use the bare minimum make up products that yield maximum results. Less is more when it comes to my make up bag, especially when I am packing for a trip! I prefer products that can work wonders without a ton of applicators, and the new Estee Lauder Double Wear line at Macy's fit the bill!
I sat down for a customized iMatch consultation with a beauty consultant at the Estee Lauder counter at Macy's in Miami and it was not only informative, but fun too! These ladies are pros when it comes to figuring out the perfect product for your lifestyle and your skin. I explained my minimalist approach when it comes to make up, my usual morning routine and the consultant matched my skin to her handy matching guide to find my perfect shade.
The Estee Lauder Double Wear line at Macy's included so many options, but I opted for the Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup, as I can simply apply the BB cream to my face with my fingertips when I'm in a rush, and it has SPF 30, which is so important for me since I live in Miami. I have to wear some type of sun protection on my face everyday, and this BB cream goes on light and smooth but provides great coverage!
If you prefer a bit of a heavier coverage, there is also a more traditional Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation available in every shade imaginable!

I got a little makeup happy while at the Estee Lauder makeup counter...I ended up buying not just the Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup, but the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Foundation as well, so that I can carry it in my purse while I am traveling for those mornings when I run out the door on the way to an event and need to do my makeup on the go.
Like the day I sat down with the cast of the Avengers Age of Ultron for an interview - you know I had to look my best! One of the most awesome things about this line of makeup is that on top of it providing a beautifully smooth, even coverage and making your skin look flawless, it stays that way for up to eight hours!

I actually don't wear makeup, but I do know that this is a great brand for people who do.
I love Estee Lauder makeup. It's such a great brand, and it doesn't kill my wallet. That picture of you is so beautiful, by the way!

I've been having the hardest time finding makeup and especially foundation that looks great on me and lasts. Every other right now is flaking off! I need to give this one a try.
I am extremely low maintenance and don't like to fuss with much. I like the idea of the 15 hour coverage
I'm glad you were able to find the perfect products for your interview! Estee Lauder products seem great.
I've always loved Estee lauder stuff, but haven't been able to wear any make up for a while due to trying to figure out an allergy issue. But man, I would love to get some more of this and start using it again!

This is all my mom wears. They have such an amazing product line.
Oh I love Estee Lauder products! These sound so great. I need some new BB cream, I'll have to head to the Estee Lauder counter soon!

I have always loved Estee Lauder! Their makeup goes on light but covers well!
Sadly, I have never tried Estee Lauder! I have many friends that use and love it though!
With my super oily skin I've never had good results with a liquid foundation. I use a creamy type though I hope at some point I can change that because the more I age, the less I like wearing foundation makeup. It's so uncomfortable.
I obsess over my makeup sometimes, but have never gone to Macy's to help pick some out. I love how they help you find the right products for your face and personality.
I thought your make-up looked amazing! I love Estee Lauder.
I am not much of a makeup person, but when I do use makeup I prefer to put a light amount. I like that this make up is light and not heavy on the face. Really don't like the feeling of caked-on makeup. Should really give this make up a try.
Estee Lauder makes amazing products. I will have to try the skincare line. My daughter loves the makeup.
I have never gone to Macy's to get makeup but its great to know that they assist in helping you find the right look. You looked amazing in your pictures.
I love Estee Lauder products! They are always high quality and have exactly what I am looking for.

I love all the different color choices. Sometimes my skin tone changes and it's nice to have so many choices available.
I could use a matching consultant. I feel like my foundation is always too pink or too ghostly looking.
Sounds like you do makeup right, like my wife. Just enough to accentuate, not enough to look like you're wearing any.
I love all the Estee Lauder products and they make it so much easier to match your skin tone.
I struggle with finding makeup that I like. Estee Lauder looks like they have great product. I'll have to check them out.
but when I do use makeup I prefer to put a light amount. I like that this make up is light and not heavy on the face. Really don’t like the feeling of caked-on makeup. Should really give this make up a try.
