Okay so winter this year in Ontario has been a little bit more than us Canadians are used to handling. And if you have sensitive skin, this is the kind of weather to trigger a dry, scaly red face. These are the kind of conditions where putting on face makeup wouldn’t be wise, and conventional foundation, blush and bronzer would normally exacerbate any problems.
I am one of those people who gets eczema and rosacea. But this winter my face has been abnormally soft and very minimally irritated, and with all honesty I think that apart from minor lifestyle changes, it’s because I’ve been wearing rms beauty on my face every day. I know it sounds a little too good to be true, and I myself never would have thought that there would exist makeup that heals as well as covers and beautifies. But it’s true, and it’s called rms beauty.
I actually bought the ‘living luminizer’ because when I had my makeup done by Rose-Marie (the founder) earlier this winter, she put it on my face and I couldn’t believe how soft it made the apples of my cheeks feel. I also have the “un” cover-up which can be used as foundation or concealer, and the cream eye shadow in “seduce” which I have not even used as an eye shade yet but only as a cheek contour.
So, why is rms beauty so good for the skin as well as a high performing cosmetic line? Well, all three products I just mentioned are made with organic oils such as coconut, jojoba, castor seed, organic cocoa seed butter and organic beeswax. They don’t even use any synthetic preservatives, just rosemary extract (a natural preservative), and no other harmful chemicals or additives.
So here is my routine using natural and organic makeup to get that radiant glow as well as heal and moisturize my skin. I start by concealing with rms “un” cover-up and a little bit of Kjaer Weis.
I don’t have a blush, so I just use lipstick on my cheeks. I’m using Zuzu Luxe in Truth Or Dare. This lipstick is all natural and organic, and made with jojoba oil, so it’s also soothing for the skin. I lightly draw a line in between the apples of my cheeks and the cheekbone.
Then I take the rms cream eye shadow in seduce and add a couple dots to where I would contour, underneath where I applied the pink lipstick. This is a great product for creating defined cheekbones. It really adjusts to the skin tone, creating a natural looking shadow.
Then I add a lot of living luminizer to the apples of my cheeks
It looks like this before I blend it :
Then I just blend it all together, towards my hairline, overlapping the products into each other but still maintaining them in that order. I thought this was too pink and pale, so I decided to add some warmth afterwards by blending in some 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze in Peach:
And that’s that. Now if I could only figure out how to deal with all the static in my hair this weather causes.
