rms beauty is the brainchild of punk rocker turned celebrity makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift. We love her approach to natural products. Each product contains food-grade ingredients in their most natural state. Everything is designed to work synergistically with your own skin, nothing will be harsh or damaging to remove.
New York City–based makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift has come a long way since her career's unlikely beginning. Her earliest recollection of cosmetics? “Using green food coloring to do my little sister up as Eddie Munster,” she says with a laugh, adding “I think we did a Spock look, too.” These childhood memories speak to the fact that doing makeup is something that just came natural to her.
For more than 20 years, Rose-Marie has drawn on that innate talent to build a successful artistry business. We recently sat down for tea with Rose-Marie in her downtown NYC studio; here's what she had to say about her and chatted all about her line, the importance of high-quality ingredients, and her beginnings as a ’70s punk.
