Summer is the time to look good, feel good and even though many of us prefer an all natural skin during the hot summer days, I still find a good foundation really handy. Most of the days I use foundation anyway and that’s why I am especially happy to talk about this perfect duo. Thanks to Amway I got to know their makeup brand Aritstry who’s makeup products I had never seen before but from what I could see and read, they look gorgeous! I chose these two base products to try out first since makeup base is super important to me and I really needed a good primer anyway. But honestly, these exceeded my expectations!
This Beauty Balm Perfecting Primer has a really nice texture and makes my skin feel smooth and glowy as it has some little shimmer in it. I just love how it preps my skin for foundation and I think it has played a massive role in my updated everyday makeup look. AND it has SPF 35 in it which is absolutely amazing for the summertime! I can’t recommend this enough, honestly! The price of this is 41€ which is not the cheapest for a primer but it works wonders! In case you’re interested I’ll leave the link to the product here.
Artistry has quite a few foundations to choose from but I went with this Youth Xtend Smoothing foundation because it seemed a little lighter and that’s what I want my summer base to be. Light and glowy and natural. In addition it blends out super nicely and it’s definitely one of the best foundations I’ve tried. I always blend it out with my fingers because I feel like that’s how I get the most natural result. But I have used makeup brushes and sponges too, so it looks nice with everything. The foundation itself has a medium coverage but I think that non of my previous foundation has made my skin look so smooth and nice. I just couldn’t believe it at first because my skin condition is not the best at the moment but this foundation hides pretty much all of it away. At the same time being light on my face. I meaaan, I am obsessed! Also, it has SPF 20 in it which means that my skin is safe in the sun and what’s not to love about that. You can read more about the foundation here. The price is 54€ but it’s worth it! I honestly can’t see myself going back to the usual 10€ foundation again.. I’ll probably still do it anyway but if I could I wouldn’t! 😀 I am just beyond grateful and happy that I got to know such an amazing brand. Can’t wait to share more with you!
