From make-up aficionados to some of the industry’s biggest make-up artists, this little pot of glow magic is loved by everyone. And it just so happens to be eco-friendly, too.

With more and more of us wising up to the environmental impact of our day-to-day lives, we’re making conscious decisions wherever possible. Whether it’s swapping out your cotton buds for plastic-free alternatives, incorporating biodegradable make-up wipes into your routine or opting for a natural deodorant; all of these small changes can make a big difference.

The same goes for our make-up bags, too. Thankfully, many beauty brands are taking responsibility for excessive packaging and streamlining wherever possible – and some have been doing this since the beginning.

RMS Beauty has been transparent about the ingredients it uses since its inception and has always been non-gmo, soy-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free. It pays attention to the packaging, too. All of its cream products are housed in recycled glass pots. As for the outer packaging, RMS’s boxes are made from 80% post-consumer recycled fiber and manufactured using 100% wind power.

Above all, RMS has made sure its commitment to being an eco-friendly brand hasn’t affected the quality of its products – and it shows. The RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer, £36 – which comes in the brand’s eco-friendly glass packaging - has earned cult status and it’s frequently spotted backstage during Fashion Week shows around the globe.

In fact, we spotted it backstage at Roberto Cavalli’s SS19 show in Milan, and make-up artist Lucia Pieroni told us it was the one product she used to give models radiant skin for the runway.

So, what makes it so great? Magic Luminizer is a cream highlighter that provides a gorgeous champagne glow, blends out easily and doesn’t contain chunky glitters that leave you looking like a disco ball. It also contains nourishing ingredients, such as jojoba oil, coconut oil and cacao seed butter, meaning it doesn’t drag against or settle into skin.

The gorgeous champagne shade has also been designed to suit all skin tones – and it really does; every member of the Stylist beauty team is a fan. To use it, swirl your finger around the pot and dab it along your cheekbones, across your brow bones, down the bridge of your nose and on your cupid’s bow. The result? Healthy, glowing skin that looks natural.
