This Iconic Foundation Wants You To Make A Statement | Clozette

What does it mean to make a statement? More than just communicating through words or creating an impression through actions, the notion of freedom behind making a statement is what makes it so significant.

We love the liberating idea of defining and filling in our own blanks — that’s why with the shades extension from the iconic Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation, making our statement can be as flawless as ever. Here’s what we uncovered at the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation Shades Extension Masterclass event.

Freedom To match my shade flawlessly

Finding the perfect shade with the IMatch

Because 10 beige-y nudes just won’t cut it anymore. From 19 shades to 40 skin-lovin’ shades, the inclusive and wide variety of shades from the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation mean that you can now find the perfect match to your skin tone. Not sure what your shade is? Simply pop by Estée Lauder counters and find your match using the IMatch.

Freedom To stay in place all day

Discovering its unique formulation at the torture test booth

This matte finish foundation’s formula is as amazing as its diverse shade range. When put to various torture tests — for water-resistance, transfer-resistance and coverage — to see whether it will withstand different conditions and make the wearer worry-free in various settings, it passed with flying colours.

It is transfer-resistant, so you don’t have to be afraid of having your foundation smear all over the screen of your phone or smudging under your clothes; it is water and sweat resistant, so you no longer need to worry about your base melting off your face in the middle of a humid day; it offers 10CM high coverage — which means your base still looks seamless at a mere 10CM away! — so your make-up stays flawless and in place for as long as 24 hours.

Freedom To ace my base

Want to ace your base? Take notes from Estée Lauder Singapore’s Chief Make-Up Artist, Jerome Chan. If you are a dry skin type, one great way to wear the Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation, according to Jerome, is to mix it up with a few drops of the famed Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. Achieve a more natural finish simply by using the fluffy powder brush with soft, flexible bristles to reveal a beautiful, airbrushed complexion.

Freedom To express myself unapologetically

At the end of the day, the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation’s diverse shades extension, remarkable formula and flexibility send one clear message: enjoy life’s possibilities and be free to be you. So, how would you make your statement?

'Tis the season to party! We're sure you've already started accepting invites for get-togethers and dinners with friends and family. There's no harm in preparing early. We're already listing down our essentials, and you should, too. Ahead, what's on top of our list for holiday soirees.



"The holiday season beckons and calls for a new bag to tote around for the festivities. The TESS bag from Chloé’s Festive Collection 2018 comes in a shiny, gorgeous sepia brown to welcome the warmth of the end-of-year celebrations. I love that it comes with two straps of varying lengths so you can wear it like a handbag or sling it over your shoulders for versatility and practicality."




"I'm gearing up for the festivities by making sure my holiday look is on point. This season, I'm all about the lips. And I'm thrilled to have learned about Lipstick Queen's Method in the Madness range. The tubes have swirls of two colours that combine to make one hue on your lips. The best part? No two swipes are alike! I'm eyeing the Reckless Red shade to complement the holidays' hues."

"I don't own a lot of bags because I'm satisfied with having just a handful for varying occasions and uses. That's why it takes something versatile that ticks functionality, style, and of course, 'personality' and 'oomph' factor to catch my attention — and this Hampstead bucket bag from Mulberry fits the bill. Aside from its sleek design and structure that can go well with day-to-night looks and both formal and casual situations, I like how the straps can be customised depending on my mood for the day. It also comes in classic colours like black and white, fun shades like red, teal and pink, and even prints if you're feeling adventurous. P.S. With it being a bucket bag, I don't have to worry about running out of space when throwing in my essentials for the day."

"It's no secret that I love wearing colourful ensembles but when it comes to eyeshadow looks, I prefer to take the minimalist approach. My foolproof formula for achieving an easy, polished eye makeup? Apply glitter on the lid and matte shade at the top. But for the holidays, I want to try using more colours like rose gold and coral hues. That's why Etude House's Tiny Twinkle Color Eyes in #01 Rose Gold caught my fancy. It has a balanced combination of mattes and shimmers, contouring and highlight shades. I'm ready to sparkle!"

"Did someone say HoliYAY? With the holiday season approaching, it's time for some layering as we countdown to the next winter vacation. The UNIQLO and ALEXANDER WANG collaboration line will be launching in 20 countries and regions around the world on 9 November, which also includes a HEATTECH underwear range available in both men’s and women’s lines for the first time. A perfect ensemble for cooler climates. Why stay indoors when you can enjoy light yet fashionable dressing with the new collection of HEATTECH and HEATTECH Extra Warm?"

"If you ask me, the best part about the holidays is the gift sets. What better way to show your love (or self-love) than indulging in these amazing products, at the happiest place on earth — Sephora. Tarte's Lasting Lippies Lip set features five full-sized shades that live in the cutest Christmas patterned box, promising to make those lips look party perfect in seconds with their signature quick-dry matte finish."
