I like makeup, but I always feel like a klutz using it. I look at what others do and am simply amazed — how they look good without looking "madeup." I know I've failed when my daughters look at me and say "You're wearing makeup" rather than "You look pretty."
On the occasions when I've had professional makeup done for the rare video or photo shoot or stage appearance, I'm astonished by how a few simple tools and products make you look like you — only better.
Which is why I'm very excited about the new Artistry essentials line launching next month. It's a tightly edited collection of skin care and shaded cosmetics products that make beauty simple – especially for busy people who have just minutes to get their game face on before rushing out the door. And it's the essentials you need — not dozens of products that overwhelm and confuse.
I have to admit I'm sticking with Time Defiance for skin care, but I can't wait to get my hands on the makeup. First, there's a mineral foundation that's a first for Artistry. Mineral-based powder foundations not only give you exceptional coverage, they're also good for your skin. It's hard to believe that makeup can actually be good for your skin, but I can tell you based on personal experience that it's true. Because I have rosacea and extremely red, sensitive skin, I've been using a mineral product for years and am switching over to the essentials product.
There are three collections for light, medium, or dark skin tones. The eye colors are simple and beautiful and designed to accentuate, not dominate. And the blush looks natural — not like something you're kind of scared to put on your face. And, the best thing is that everything comes in one package — you don't have to try to hunt down which colors go with which or what mascara you might need. It really is beauty made simple for people who want to be simply beautiful.
Now if only essentials could do something about my closet and make fashion simple, I'd be all set!
And, to help get essentials off to a good start, there's a brand new Artistry Skin Care Sales Kit that provides everything an IBO needs to sell essentials and other Artistry products. The kit replaces the Time Defiance No-Tox Party Kit ande combines No-Tox, a "Drop and Shop" approach and "Purse to Purse" selling in one kit. So you don't have to choose to focus on one category and one approach — you have everything you need to sell Artistry one-on-one or in a party setting.
Thanks to everyone who provided input on what you need in a sales kit — as you've seen with the launch of the Simply Nutrilite kit and now Artistry essentials, we're listening to what you need to successfully sell these products.
