Foundation can be one of those dangerous downward-spiral-products. It can be used to hide a little blemish, but then you suffocate your skin and one imperfection leads to a full-blown break out. I was just chatting with a friend over sushi the other night who bemoaned a rather familiar tale: "I always break out after wearing makeup!" Guess what? That doesn't have to be the case.
Remember my post about ingredients that could be causing acne? Well, keep those ingredients out of your foundation, and you'll be on the right track towards backlash-free makeup. This, in fact, is exactly what RMS Beauty did. RMS Beauty created a foundation out of food grade ingredients (that's right, food grade) that nurture your skin while veiling imperfections. Exactly what makeup should do, at least in my book.
"Un" Cover-Up is weightless. Be prepared to apply it and, once you put down the mirror, utterly forget it's there. This is what happens when you eliminate silicones that clog pores and prevent your skin from breathing. Historically, this has been one of my pet peeves about makeup. I don't want to be able to feel it there all day long. I've never worn anything lighter than RMS "Un" Cover-up. Even the mineral powder I have feels heavier on my skin. I'm never going back.
RMS Beauty is a favorite of Gisele Bundchen, Miranda Kerr and Karolina Kurkova. Not surprisingly, because the entire RMS Beauty line is made of pure ingredients that are designed to synergistically nourish your skin.
One of the best parts of this foundation is its blendability. I tried on a shade, oh, maybe 3 shades too dark? (I guess I'm paler than I think.) But I was able to work it in so that you barely noticed that my face was too tan. So feel free to apply with a heavy hand or a lighter hand, and vary your coverage that easily. In fact, going even a little easy on the blending will allow this product to also take on the role of concealer. Either way, it absolutely melts into your skin.
The finish of "Un" Cover-Up is beautiful. It's satiny smooth and looks just like your own glowing skin, but better. It never takes on that makeup-surface-treatment-
