The organic makeup meets skincare line to give you that subtle glow…
When I started to make the switch to all natural beauty and skincare products, RMS was one of the first lines that I turned to. I first heard about the brand due to their Living Luminizer, which reached cult status and was featured on nearly every beauty blog time and time again as the best subtle/natural highlighter. As a lover of glowy skin, I decided to give it a try and have been hooked ever since. It imparts a healthy sheen that will have people wondering whether you simply always glisten or just got back from a wellness retreat in the Maldives.
RMS was founded by Rose-Marie Swift, a celebrity makeup artist, who discovered years ago that she had some health issues related to high levels of toxins in her blood stream. Many of these toxins could be attributed to the cosmetics that she was using and applying every day. Thus, in a mission to improve her own health as well as the health of other women, she created the RMS line of organic color cosmetics.
All RMS products are not only certified organic and non-toxic, but they are made with raw, food grade ingredients. Some of the certified organic ingredients that they incorporate are coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, castor seed oil, and jojoba oil. You can read more about the beauty benefits of applying coconut oil here. Thus, their makeup not only adds beautiful color that can be mixed, matched, and layered, but is also nourishing for your skin. It provides a wonderful intersection of makeup and skincare and is one of the leaders in the natural beauty industry. Additionally, all of RMS’ packaging is eco-friendly and the small pots are all recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable. I love that each item comes with very minimal cardboard, meaning less waste and overall a smaller impact on the environment.
I believe that even those who are not as concerned with the ingredients in their products, will love RMS for the wide range of colors and the beautiful looks that the makeup creates. It is also a perfect line for that minimal, no makeup-makeup look that can be applied on the go in 5 minutes or less. The little pots of color you can simply throw in your purse and smudge on with your fingers after the gym, at work, or even while in the car at a stoplight. Some of my favorites from the line include: the Eye Polish in lunar (wonderful for lightly accentuating the eye), the Lip2Cheek in demure (the perfect flush for every day), Coconut Oil wipes (great for packing and removing makeup on trips), the “Un” Cover-Up (easy to apply concealer/foundation that never looks cakey). I would highly recommend checking out the brand if you have not already and I’ve linked below some of my top picks in case you were wondering where to start.
Happy Friday everyone! Let me know below what your favorite products are for applying on the go.
