Foundation for festivals & concerts

Earlier this year I was trying to find a really good foundation to wear to a festival that would last all day and night without smearing or going gross and fading. I couldn't find much and just gave up. So later on I was at an Estee Lauder counter trying on their foundations on my hand. I tried on Double Wear Maximum Cover and a couple others. So after a whole day of shopping, washing my hands and even showering I discovered that the Double Wear Maximum Cover was still on my hand and had not changed or worn off at all. I was really excited and went back the next day to purchase it. 

This thing is like photoshop in a tube. It literally hides any blemishes or flaws and leaves you with perfect skin. This foundation may be too thick and heavy for some people, but I personally didn't find it to be too thick especially for a festival or concert. My favourite thing about DWMC is that it lasts for soooo long without moving or fading! I will come home after being out for 12 hours and it still looks the exact same. My only issue with this baby is that it does make my face look pale in photos with flash (like most foundations that contain a SPF). Overall, this is my all time favourite foundation for festivals and concerts, it has great coverage and lasts a crazy long time.

Here is me without makeup, as you can see I have freckles, pale skin and redness.

and here is me with the foundation and a bit of blush :)



  1. Hiya Bella :)

    Thank u so much for that lovely compliment on my makeup dear!

    This foundation sounds so promising:) And it looks really good on you too :)
    I´ve fallen in love with Dior Sculpt, it´s also quite thick and it covers up so well. I love it.
    The only thing is that if I don´t touch up several times a day it tends to become quite shiny. And because of the constant touching up with powder it can become a little cakey towards the end of the day, especially if you like me work in a hairsalon which tends to get extremely hot espc now duing summer.. hmmm.. desperately looking for a new one to try out..;)

    1. Thank you :)
      I might have to try Dior Sculpt. I didn't find the Estee Lauder foundation o go shiny, but I set it with powder and have dry skin, but I love it
