RMS Beauty Shines On
Since meeting makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift four years ago—at her apartment, while she was dog-sitting Miranda Kerr’s Yorkie, no less—we’ve been hooked on her exceptional makeup range. A favorite with green-leaning models—many of whom Swift has primped and primed on set as an editorial makeup artist over the last two decades—her RMS Beauty line features products that are not only nontoxic but also include a laundry list of natural ingredients that actually help heal and nourish the skin as well. The collection is full of perennial multiuse staples, like the “Un” Cover-Up and the Living Luminizer, as well as an edited range of eye, lip, and cheek tints, which Swift adds to seasonally. Her latest launch is a limited-edition shade of the Moringa-oil-infused Lip Shine and, unsurprisingly, it’s a winner. Sacred, as the watermelon color is called, imparts a light, moisture-enriched kiss of bright coral-y pink to mouths that can be built up or worn sheer. While not as pigmented as Swift’s fan-favorite Lip2Cheek colors, the emollient balm also happens to double as a lightweight, transparent blush, which will be a huge plus come summer’s sweltering temps.
