“un” cover-up


In middle school, when I first began wearing makeup, it was for all the wrong reasons.  I felt extremely self-conscious, and it got to the point where I wouldn’t even go to the grocery store without full-on makeup.  My goal was to cover up the way I looked, or even go so far as to change it.  My view of makeup, and myself, truly began to change when I read Treasure Yourself by Miranda Kerr.  It was also the time I began using Kora Organics and practicing positive affirmations.

I love makeup.  However, makeup is now fun whereas then, makeup gave me a little anxiety.  I am now discovering products that subtly enhance my features,  rather than cover them up.  You are beautiful just as you are!

Today, I want to share with you all my favorite concealer, “un” cover-up by RMS Beauty.  RMS Beauty is an organic makeup and cosmetics company founded by Rose Marie Swift.  All of her products contain just a few, organic ingredients.  I have been using this concealer for a few years now, and I absolutely love it!  Here is how I use the RMS Beauty “un” cover-up:

❤ a little under my eyes instantly makes me look awake

❤ around the nose

❤ on the occasional blemish (the main ingredient in this concealer is coconut oil, which does wonders for acne because it is anti-bacterial)

I just love the whole message behind RMS Beauty.  It is a brand that makes me feel good when I use it.  Also, the packaging is beautiful.  They use high quality ingredients, and only a little bit of each product is needed to be effective.  There are a few other products that I use by RMS Beauty, and I will share those in a separate post!

It is a beautiful feeling to go makeup free, but I really do love makeup.  It is like playing dress up!  I would love to know all of your thoughts on this.  To me, there is nothing more fun than giving each other product recommendations and swapping advice!

My favorite piece of makeup advice is actually from Aunt Becky on Full House.  DJ was just starting to wear makeup, and she was using a lot (a lot a lot).  Aunt Becky gave her a makeup lesson, and told her, “The secret to wearing makeup is making it look like you’re not wearing any.”  I think of this quite often when I’m applying makeup for the day.  It is also one of my favorite scenes from Full House!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and thank you so much for reading!

xo, Carly

  1. I used to feel exactly the same about makeup. Having very problematic broken out skin cause of lot of issues with self consciousness but after years of learning as well as taking better care of my skin, I too love makeup now because it is FUN 🙂 I’ve never tried anything from RMS before!
