The popularity of rosé has elevated the wine from merely a beverage to the embodiment of a lifestyle. A splash of pink in your glass instantly evokes feelings of relaxed sophistication. For me, that translates to visions of lounging seaside in the south of France, snacking on fresh seafood behind oversized sunglasses and a chic, wide-brimmed hat.
Rose-Marie Swift is no stranger to that dream life, having spent the past 35 years making up the famous faces of bon vivant A-listers such as Demi Moore, Isabella Rossellini and Paloma Picasso. When she launched her organic cosmetics line, RMS Beauty, in 2009, her focus was on keeping it real, from the ingredients to the final look.
The latest addition to Swift’s popular collection of potted luminizers is an effervescent shade called Champagne rosé. “It looks like bubbly Champagne, but it’s got a little pink hue to it without being over-the-top kaleidoscope, over-the-top glitter,” she explains. “It’s very refined and elegant.” So the next time you find yourself trapped at the office, stuck in traffic or suffering through another bad date, a swipe on your cheeks may be just the thing to elevate your mood.
