Smooth Operator

RMS Beauty “un cover up”

This is honestly a life changer of a product for me & I’m forever grateful to my friends at Private Edition for introducing me to the brand this weekend.  As stated multiple times recently, I’m over foundation.  I am gravitating towards sheer tinted moisturizers or skin tints (hello, Glossier!) – The product in this little glass pot literally melts into your skin immediately banishing redness, dark spots, and enlarged pores.  I swear, it is magic.  You can use it as foundation, concealer, or cover up.  I have been adding a couple pats to the areas of my face that still have a fair amount of redness after I apply my skin tint/moisturizer.  The results is gorgeous & perfection.  I am truly in awe & can’t stop checking out my reflection in the mirror.  I swear, my skin has never looked so amazing. I bought shade #22, which is yellow based and their biggest seller.
Keep in mind this is an organic company & one of the key ingredients in this product is coconut oil.

Simplicity courtesy of Glossier & Hourglass

Glossier’s perfecting skin tint is like your own skin only better.  It’s perfect for people who don’t love foundation but need a touch of coverage that evens and brightens.  The older I get the less makeup I like on my skin – this is problematic bc the older I get the less perfect my skin is.  However,  I’m way more diligent about taking care of my skin now that I’m in my mid-thirties so maybe that’s why I can sometimes get away with the “less is more” look/approach. I use Glossier’s priming moisturizer too – it’s simple, clean, and buildable – fuss free & my skin really agrees with it. What I love most about this duo is that it perfectly covers my redness without feeling or looking cakey or heavy.  Occasionally, I add a touch of concealer.


To seal the deal, I do a very light dusting of Hourglass’ ambient lighting powder – this powder is silky smooth and packed with light diffusing pigments.  It truly gives you an ethereal glow.  Sheer perfection.


Glossier just launched their cult classic balm in a coconut version.  Mine arrives this week.  Pumped!!  It’s the little things…
