Glossy Lid Makeup featuring RMS Beauty

RMS Beauty Products on the face. Five Product Face.

This look, it's not really me. The glossy lids, the choker... they're not my style, but I figured a Monday morning was as good a time as any to try something new and adventurous.

This look consists entirely of rms beauty products, from the foundation to the mascara. I think when I lot of people think of "green" beauty they imagine a blonde girl wearing a paisley dress wearing her moms old gladiator sandals or some cowboy boots holding a dandelion walking through the grass underneath a tree. Maybe she's brought a weathered book and and a fruit and nut bar to keep her company as she spends her afternoon outdoors... Or at least thats what I used to imagine.

I wanted to show that green beauty is more than that and can be used to create any kind of look you can imagine. Today I'm pairing a grungy glossy sooty lid with bare lips and effortlessly highlighted and contoured cheeks. This look uses 100% green beauty products and doesn't use a single brush.

The Products.

"Un" Cover-Up in Shade 55, $36. My favorite green beauty product of all time. It's a damn shame it doesn't come in deeper colors at the moment - everyone should be able to wear this.

Eye Polish in Karma, $28. This product is sooo legit for the grungy creasy glossy smoky eye look I was going for. It has some luminosity to it, so it's more interesting than a flat black.

Volumizing Mascara, $28. The first eco-beauty mascara I purchased, this gives me natural, defined lashes. I'm used to more volume, but I still get compliments when I wear this out.

Contour Bronze, $28. In the pot and on swatches this has noticeable golden shimmer. On the face the shimmer goes unnoticed and the product provides a very natural looking contour for my skin tone.

Magic Luminizer, $38. I have a love/hate relationship with this product. First, the price is over the top. Second, it looks best after melting into the skin for a few hours, so I don't get that instant excitement when I am applying it to the face.

The Tutorial.

I'm starting off with my face primed and my eyebrows done. I'v also got some lip balm on, which is all I'll be wearing on the lips.

  1. Apply "Un" Cover-Up to face and blend in with fingers.
  2. Sculpt the face by applying Contour Bronze along the cheekbones, forehead, and nose and jaw if you're into that.
  3. Highlight with Magic Luminizer on the tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow.
  4. Smudge a little bit of the Volumizing Mascara along the lash line to create a dark base.
  5. Apply Contour Bronze to the lids and blend into the crease for a bronzy glossy eye.
  6. Use a little mascara to thicken and define the lashes.
  7. If you want to go bold, throw on some black glossy cream shadow, like the Eye Polish in Karma.

    Wow! This beauty look is gorgeous. I’ve only tried RMS illuminator but the glossy lid seems to be popular now so I’m thinking about giving this a try. (Funny because I’ve only bought eye primer to prevent a glossy lid haha)

      Right?! It’s funny how one day matte is in fashion and the next day dewy. Just goes to show that at the end of the day it’s all art. -JP
