Package Design

What is the inspiration behind the ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation package design?
Luxurious Crescendo packaging is exquisite in finish and detail. With an elegant, uplifting presence, the graceful, upward slant of the cap will unify the brand. Tall, sleek bottles rise with grace and confidence, capturing the essence of the Artistry woman – her elegance and her modern sophistication always at the forefront of beauty. Reimagined with a bold purpose and aesthetic excellence, ARTISTRY Crescendo packaging is a true work of art and an object to behold.

The Crescendo design, high-quality materials, and distinctive colors make ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation an object of desire and reinforce the ARTISTRY positioning of Forward Beauty. Olivier Van Doorne, president and worldwide creative director of SelectNY, stated, “The elegant, uplifting design of the ARTISTRY Crescendo packaging is now a hallmark of the new ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation. The graceful, upward slope of the cap, and the sophistication and confidence of the tall, sleek bottle allude to a beautiful journey forward when using the foundation.”

Why does this product come in a large package?
The luxurious, rich, and creamy formulation is more viscous, or thicker, than other formulas; therefore, it is best dispensed from a piston pump. A piston pump is used to dispense high-viscosity products and, by design, requires a larger package. This type of pump also ensures that you get the maximum product dispensed from each bottle.

What are the air pockets or bubbles found in the product?
The process of filling the bottle results in a small amount of residual “head space” in order to properly apply the pump mechanism. This head space appears as a pocket of air at the top of the bottle. The rich texture of this luxurious formulation requires a special kind of package to allow precise and complete dispensing of the product. Amway guarantees that each package contains 30 mL of product.

How much should you pump for one application?
Depressing the pump halfway generally provides enough foundation for a single application. However, apply as much product as you need to create the look you want.

How many pumps do I need before the product comes out for the first time?
Typically, the pump will require up to five pumps for the product to begin dispensing. On occasion, it may take up to 10 pumps for the product to dispense for the first time.

How do I open and close the bottle correctly?
To remove the overcap, simply pull it straight up. To replace the overcap, apply pressure until it snaps over the base of the pump. For proper Crescendo alignment, snap the overcap down and twist it clockwise until the overcap stops.

How does the foundation pump lock? What is the benefit of a pump lock?
The pump lock can be used to prevent the pump from accidentally dispensing. Turn the foundation pump counterclockwise to unlock and allow pumping. Turn the pump clockwise to lock.

What are the different application techniques to achieve the best look for me?
To achieve the look you want, try Artistry Global Makeup Artist Rick DiCecca’s easy, expert tips:
  • For a perfect foundation – Using your fingers, dab a small amount of foundation to your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. With your fingertips, sponge, or brush, blend the foundation over your forehead, down your nose, across your cheeks, over your chin, and along the sides of your face. Be sure to blend from the center of face toward the hairline for the most even application.
  • For invisible coverage – Apply a small amount of ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation to the back of your hand. Mix with a smaller amount of ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Serum Concentrate. Once this mixture is well blended, apply to skin in a circular motion using a fluffy powder brush.


Shade Selection

How do I tell what my perfect shade foundation is? How do I pick the correct shade for me?
Perfecting your skin is as simple as finding your shade Level and determining your undertone. Level is the depth of your natural skin tone. Since every woman is an individual work of art, ARTISTRY foundations are categorized into 6 natural levels – from light to dark – and make finding your shade easy and more accurate.

Using the ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Foundation Shade Finder found on page 5 of the ARTISTRY Signature Foundation Guide (a downloadable PDF at Amway.com), choose the row of swatches that most closely matches your natural depth of skin color. Here is an easy way to gauge:

Level 1: Fair (color of milk)
Level 2: Light (color of sweet cream)
Level 3: Light-Medium (color of weak tea)
Level 4: Medium (color of milk chocolate)
Level 5: Medium-Dark (color of strong tea)
Level 6: Dark (color of strong coffee)

Undertones are designated as Warm, Neutral, or Cool. The following questions make it easier to determine your undertone:

Warm: Does your skin have a golden or olive hue? Do the veins in your wrist appear more green than blue? Do you get more compliments when you wear browns, dark greens, oranges, and yellows? If you answer “yes” to most of these questions, then your undertone is likely Warm. ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation Warm colors include: Buff, Cream, Sand, Soleil, Brulee, Cappuccino, and Mink.

Neutral: Does your skin have an even-toned, neutral hue that is neither pink nor golden? Do the veins in your wrist appear a little green and also a little blue? Does any clothing color suit you well? If you answer “yes” to most of these questions, then your undertone is likely Neutral. ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation Neutral colors include: Bisque, Ochre, Natural, Tawny, Golden, Caramel, and Walnut.

Cool: Does your skin have a pink or rosy hue? Do the veins in your wrist appear more blue than green? Do you get more compliments when you wear pinks, purples, blues, and whites? If you answer “yes” to most of these questions, then your undertone is likely Cool. ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND Lifting Smoothing Foundation Cool colors include: Chablis, Chiffon, Plush, Sienna, Chestnut, and Mocha.

Most Asians, Latinas, and Mediterranean Europeans are Warm or Neutral. Many Northern Europeans are Cool or Neutral. If you are unsure, start with Neutral.

What shade does Teresa Palmer, the global face of ARTISTRY, wear?

How was the new global shade palette developed to truly match a broad range of skin tones?
