Babalu is always in search of the best-of-the-best. Oscar's work fits a very special category - while you may have seen towel art in the form of swans or mermaids on one of those fabulous Caribbean cruises, noone whips-it-up so fast and sharp like Oscar! www.towelheadchic.com
We caught up for a chat with makeup artist to the stars and founder of the iconic RMS Beauty cosmetic line Rose Maire Swift where we learned about the inspration behind her beauty line, her early meeting with a future star and her favorite colors...
What inspired you to create the eponymous line of RMS Beauty organic beauty products: After many years in the fashion and make-up industry, I’ve learned a lot about the impact of daily exposure to chemicals in beauty care products.
I realized I had to create something that breaks away from traditional cosmetics on the market as well as the pack of so-called natural cosmetics that are already available. I founded RMS Beauty a few years ago and formulated my products with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin. In their purest form, the healing properties of natural enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants remain fully intact, encouraging amazing potential for anti-aging effects.
Share with us a notable story on-the-job as a makeup artist... The first day I ever worked with Gisele I did her astrology chart for her. I told her she was going to be super rich and famous and she said in her heavy Brazilian accent “oh no…I don’t even speak English”. We have worked together ever since.
Make up is about play color, let's hear your favorites... What color first comes to mind when you think of the following:
The Beach: Blue
A man's eyes: Blue
A special Dress: Black
How would you make the world a better place... God I don’t know if I can but I certainly am trying to make the cosmetic industry a better place.
