Perfect Summer Base

I recently posted a blog post all about the 🌿Artistry Essentials Range 🌿 which is an incredible skincare range that’s nice and light on the skin, perfect for the warmer months. To go with using such nice light skincare, it only makes sense than to use something light as your foundation base. The new CC Cream from Artistry is a great option in my opinion and team it up with their Exact Fit concealer and you’ve got a flawless base without the heavy weight.

The CC Cream comes in a total of three different shades and can be used multiple ways. The way I personally use it is on it’s own as my base. It has a really gorgeous illuminating effect on the skin and in the sun I honestly found it to literally sparkle it was so brighten for my complexion. It contains an SPF of 50, which I was worried would create flashback but it doesn’t.

The CC cream can also be worn as a priming product underneath a more heavier coverage foundation so you don’t have to worry that your going to be buying a makeup product solely to be used during the summer months. It can be worn all year round if you wish. I will say this make my T-Zone, which tends to get slightly oily in the summer, become oilier quicker so I probably wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin types.

The shade that I have is LIGHT and it’s definitely a perfect match to my skin tone. I personally found it best applied on the skin with a dampened sponge. The amount that you see in the above picture is the amount I use for half of my face. I found that a littleof this goes a long way, and with it retailing for 46.60 euros it really should.

To go with the idea of beautifully flawless, fresh skin, Artistry have released their Exact Fit Concealer. Now I have this concealer in the shade LIGHT and even so it is a tad bit dark on me but I made it work by applying it under my foundation rather than over as I normally do. Just something to keep in mind as you might want to go a shade lighter than what you would normally go for when choosing a shade in this concealer.

The concealer comes in the most elegant of packaging that really is standard for Artistry as a brand. It has a built in mirror and the applicator is a flatten doe-foot. The constancy of this concealer is nice and light however I personally didn’t like it under my eyes. I found it really drying and as the day wore on it started to cake and settle in my fine lines even though it claims not to.

I have tried this concealer for covering up blemishes and it works a dream. Because it has almost a velvety matte finish to it, it doesn’t move throughout the day. So once you cover your spot/pimple using it that it, you wouldn’t be seeing that again until you remove your makeup at the end of the day. A tube of this retails for 27.55 euros and it comes in four different shades as well as a brightener shade which is probably the shade I would go for, for us lighter skin toned girls.

Let me know in the comments below your go to summer foundation/bb cream/cc cream. I personally love the CC cream from Artistry and once this tube is finished, I would definitely purchase it again and again. The concealer not so much though I think I might try out the brightener shade.
