Lately, I’ve been all about the finishing touch. There are two steps that, even in the dead of winter, can make you look fresh as a daisy. One is misting your face with water. The other is dabbing on a luminizer.

Karlie Kloss got me thinking about luminizers last summer, when she divulged that Pat McGrath is never without her “Shiny Stick” (Madina Chic & Shine, from Italy). Then, another trendsetting makeup artist told me that he loves ModelCo’s Luminosity Shimmer Stick. Forgive me, but I’d always been under the impression that a shimmery cream—outside of runways and photoshoots—could go terribly wrong, shockingly fast. A true “do not try this at home” product.

RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer changed my mind. I was on a shoot when Rose-Marie Swift, a makeup artist herself, handed me the best-selling item from her namesake organic color line. “It gives a glow to your face—I cannot stand a dry face, with foundation everywhere. You look dead!” She smudged it into the inner corners of my eye, under the brows, and across the cheekbones. I wasn’t transformed into Miranda Kerr (Swift’s longtime buddy…she babysits her Yorkie), but I did look markedly fresher. “The whole line is based on raw coconut oil, so all the healing properties are intact. It’s really healthy makeup,” she said of her ultra-pure formulations. Lo and behold, the ingredients for the luminizer are an unheard of four. Perhaps that’s why it’s so foolproof.
