Latest Kit Acquisitions: RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

Once again thanks to the magic of social media, I was introduced to a new brand, RMS Beauty. Brain child of New York makeup artist Rose Marie Swift, this more than organic range was created to heal and nourish skin the products were used on. The ingredients used are all raw and food grade thus promising the Living and Nourishing qualities. It's a big range so I won't go too heavily into it. I only have one product at the moment and it's surpassed everything I've expected from an organic range!

Living Luminizer
This beautiful radiant illuminator is based in coconut and Castor oil and is so light and illuminating without any stickiness or oiliness. I was dubious but after using it on all my shoots as soon as I got mine, I can safely say it's stunning and will be in my kit till it's finished!

I got mine from Cult Beauty for £30.00 for 4.25g.

To show you how it looks like, I've included photos of a shoot I recently did where I applied it on all the highlight planes of my model's face. Obviously I've exaggerated it as I wanted to really create a dewy sheen. Have a look.
Foundation: Givenchy Teint Couture, Estee Lauder Maximum Cover.
Eyes: Givenchy Magic Kajal in Brun D'Exception, PIXI Silky Eye Pencil in Black Cocoa, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer, L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Noir Exces.
Eyebrows: Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette, MAC Brow Fix in Clear.
Cheeks: Le Maquillage Foundation in 117, Living Luminizer.
Lips: Sisley Confort Extreme Nutritive Lip Balm, bit of foundation, Living Luminizer.
Powder: Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder.

Here's a close up with flash to really show all the highlights!
What do you think? I'm a huge fan already and will be looking into getting more of the range in my kit. Have you tried any from this range? If so, please share your thoughts!

  4. It's been on my wish list for a long time. I own the RMS concealer ("un" cover- up) and it's great. It has good coverage and the most natural finish of all the concealers I own (and I own a lot). I also want to try the new bronzing cream she released and some of her lip2cheeks. Oh and great makeup as always. XX

  6. I would LOVE to know how to achieve a look like this, how to get the under eye area so bright without powdering. I have a lot of people who have dark under eye circles and ofcourse you have to color correct that first and then highlight, i always set that with powder.. Help!

    1. Hi Katarina, to be honest, it's all about a combination of products and how they work for you and your techniques. I have found that I am not great with creamy concealers and I prefer a stiffer and heavier concealer. Also I don't really worry about colour correcting under the eyes, it would have to be a seriously bad case for me to even consider it! My theory is that the more layers and products you have, the more it will crease. I keep my layers super light and also please don't conceal up to the eyes, you will find that under eye circles only ever happen along the bone contour and if you conceal all the way to the lashes, eyes will look squinty and pig-like. Have a go and see how you go. It's all about experimenting and finding out what works best with your skills and techniques. I dislike the current trend of over foundationing, concealing & contouring favoured by many Youtubers who in all respect are far from makeup artists. Good luck and let me know what you think.
