Estée Lauder: Beauty expert Q&A

Samantha White - Estée Lauder beauty advisor

As an Estée Lauder beauty advisor at one of England's busiest Boots stores, Samantha White is no stranger to fielding customers' questions on all things beauty related. From make-up and skincare to fragrance, here she shares her answers to the questions she's most commonly asked, complete with top tips and product recommendations.

What does a face serum do?

A facial serum is a targeted high-performance skincare treatment that penetrates deep within the skin surface to target the appearance of the signs of skin ageing.

My eyeshadow creases and never seems to stay put. How can I make it last?

A good eyeshadow base can help your eyeshadow last longer - I recommend Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eyeshadow Base, a primer that gives all eyeshadows up to 15 hours' staying power.

What's the best way to apply foundation - fingers, brush or sponge?

For a flawless finish and an even (and hygienic) application, we recommend using a foundation brush to apply your foundation.

How can I make my fragrance last longer on my skin?

Using the shower gel or body lotion (or both) from your favourite fragrance range with a spray of your chosen fragrance will give you a softer and more long-lasting scent.

How can I make my lipstick last longer?

To help your lip colour stay put for longer, try applying a lip liner before you apply your lipstick. Blend the lip liner with a lip brush to soften the line and finish with your favourite lipstick as normal.

What's the difference between EDT and EDP fragrance?

Eau de Toilette (EDT) and Eau de Parfum (EDP) are different concentrations and intensities of fragrance. Eau de Toilette generally lasts 2-3 hours on the skin, whereas the more intense Eau de Parfum lasts between 4-5 hours.
