RMS Beauty’s Rose-Marie Swift “Hyaluronic acid. Big time. And people who worship YouTubers who don’t know how to do makeup.

Odile Gilbert “Too much plastic surgery. My friends and I go for drinks at the Beverly Hills Hotel and watch all the people walk through. Everyone looks so fake, and it’s so weird to me that they don’t see it! I don’t mind plastic surgery, but it has to be good. It can’t be obvious.”
