Pure & Simple Everyday Essentials
This whole look is completed with RMS Beauty, my favorite makeup brand in the world. It is extremely pure, 100% natural, has healing and nourishing properties, and looks & feels amazing — more than any other makeup I’ve encountered in my life!
This line is all about simple, straightforward products which make it perfect for an everyday look. I LOVE how quickly and easily I can apply everything — I literally swipe it on and go which is how everyday makeup should be. I use just the basics for this look which actually turns out to be my favorite kind of look anyway! Plus, everyone appreciates when I can get ready in only 5 to 10 minutes, myself included.
ABOUT THE BRAND
I wanted to share a little bit about the line that my everyday makeup routine is made up of and why I love it. RMS beauty has sourced not only the safest ingredients but also guarantees the highest quality (there is a difference). The USDA certifies RBD (refined, bleached, deodorized) products as Certified Organic, but this means that they have ultimately been stripped of their vital nutrients during processing, despite being “organic”. RMS beauty avoids RBD products entirely, which is why they’re my #1 makeup brand and I feel AMAZING about putting their products on my skin regularly.
ABOUT THE FORMULATIONS
Certified Organic, RAW, virgin, coconut oil is the base of all RMS Beauty formulas. The coconut oil is extracted from fresh virgin coconuts without the use of heat or chemical solvents preserving its natural Vitamin E, antioxidants and enzymes. Coconut oil is the richest source of lauric acid which is also found in mothers' breast milk. It is known for its natural anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties which makes it a perfect choice for keeping skin clear and healthy, and even better for acne prone skin.
HERE ARE ALL THE PRODUCTS I USE FROM THEIR LINE TO CREATE MY "EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS" LOOK:
This is like butter, I kid you not. I don’t think I’ve ever used a concealer that melts into my skin so well, and it also doubles as foundation! This is hands down my ideal formula for a concealer/foundation — I couldn’t have dreamt of or created something better! It’s lightweight while still covering imperfections and never looks heavy or dry. It also moisturizes and heals your skin upon wearing it. I wear shade “11”.
I’m in love with this cream bronzer because the color is UNMATCHED. It is such a deep, rich hue (the opposite of orange) and mimics a true sun-kissed glow. It’s made with Buriti oil, the oil highest in Vitamin A and Beta-carotene known to man, pressed from the nuts of Brazil's moriche palm tree. I love how blendable it is too — I use RMS Beauty’s Kabuki Polisher brush to blend it out.
I think I’m starting to sound like I was paid to say this BUT — this setting powder is also unrivaled. I have literally NEVER seen anything make my skin look so blurred and flawless. I was actually in shock the first time I used this. My skin looked like a porcelain doll as soon as I applied it. It minimizes the appearance of pores, softens the skin, and absorbs oil to create a silky second skin. (There’s also no white residue.)
LUMINIZER X QUAD
I'm SO obsessed with these luminizers for a more natural look. My two favorite shades are Champagne Rosé (a warm blush champagne) and Champagne Fizz (a glam opalescent shimmer). They give a sheer, luminous glow and the formula is super easy to glide right on! Sometimes I'll layer a couple different shades together or wear them individually.
To keep it natural and simple, I don’t use any eyeshadow. Instead, I swipe on some eye polish which is just a subtle, glossy, sheer metallic hue to open up my eyes and make them brighter. I love shades “Utopia” (a deep sunlit gold) and “Lunar” (a champagne pearl). I put them all over my lid, but concentrated especially towards the inner corners of the eyes and a small dab at the inner most point. These are also very nourishing and moisturizing to the eye area.
This mascara is made of oils, butters and waxes and instantly adds life to my lashes without flaking, smudging or clumping. I use their “Defining” formula which is creamy and rich and separates the lashes to define each one. It’s very lightweight and natural looking but still makes a dramatic impact on my eyes. Since I have sensitive eyes, I like being able to wear this without any problems or irritation.
I love swiping this over my lips as my last step in my routine! Although it is formulated for use on lips and cheeks, I tend to only use it on my lips. I wear shade “Spell” (a modern nude dusty rose). This is like a lip butter, it’s super creamy, hydrating, and the pigment is very concentrated so just dabbing a little on goes a long way!
I’ve never loved every single product from an entire line before — EVER! If I had to use only one line of makeup products for the rest of my life, this would be it! RMS Beauty has truly blown it out of the water. I can’t say enough good things about the brand as a whole and the performance of every single product. The products actually make putting makeup on more fun!
