For celebrity makeup artist and founder of RMS Beauty Rose-Marie Swift, a lifetime of asking questions led her to look up—literally. Swift, who tends to famous faces including Gisele Bündchen, Miranda Kerr, Tilda Swinton and Zoe Saldana, is an avid astrologer, a makeup artist who is as likely to read the stars as she is to work on them. “I wanted to know why people acted the way they acted and did the things they did and why good luck happens to some people and not to others,” says Swift. She explains that a grammar-school fascination with uncovering childhood crushes evolved into an in-depth study of the stars and planets in her 20s, starting with her desire to understand the fashion world. “I began working with models, curious to explore some of their behavior patterns, why one would be famous and one wouldn’t be. It’s not just looks,” she says. “You look at their charts, some were being rewarded in this lifetime.”
