Makeup Treat in NYC

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I had the great fortune last week to have two phenomenal Trish McEvoy makeup artists come to my hotel room in NYC at 7:30 am to do my makeup. I was taping a TV segment with Fox Business News and also had meetings scheduled with the beauty editors of InStyle, Vogue, and more. There is nothing like having your makeup done by a professional - They just know how to make you look your best.I knew in order to look my best, I needed great skin. No matter how much makeup you put on, it doesn’t sit well if your...

Decorate in Minutes

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

It’s Saturday night and we have people coming over in 15 minutes for a last minute wine and cheese soiree before going out for dinner. It was so last minute, that I have nothing to decorate the house with. No flowers, no plants, no anything. I went through my candle cabinet (I keep a ton on hand for last minute hostess gifts) and found the Black Pepper Candle by Molton Brown. It is a chocolate brown candle in a huge gorgeous glass container – it is elegant in and of itself. I lit this in my kitchen, right next to...

Grimy Skin and Taking a Break

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I took the train home from New York City to Washington DC last night. This was after a full day of meetings in New York City and no time to freshen up. My skin felt so grimy and dirty.

It is soothing and oil-free - my skin felt clean after, but I wanted more.I...

My concoctions change every couple months, when I decide they stop working, the weather changes, or I get bored.I must say, I am in love with my latest nighttime cocktail. (I have morning ones too.) After I wash my face and make sure every bit of makeup and the day's grime is gone, I start with Phyto+ gel by Skinceuticals. This is a lightening, soothing gel with kojic acid. (I have an uneven, slightly freckled skin tone which seems to get worse as I get...

Everyone is always asking me about what beauty products I travel with. They must think that if I travel with it, it must be wonderful, because you can only travel with a few products.The truth is, I am the worst traveler. I have to check my bag because I insist on traveling with every possible permutation of beauty products I may want to use. Hardly any of them come in convenient travel sizes. My suitcase is usually 75% beauty items, 25% clothes. And I am unwilling to compromise.I have attached a photo of what I am currently traveling with. I...

My Sunscreen Buffet

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

Summer '07I am somewhat fair, have a tendency to freckle, and spend every weekend at the beach with my family. Thus, my sunscreen obsession. The counter near our back door has a myriad of suncreens all lined up neatly in a row. I find that if I put the right texture on the right body part, my family and I are more likely to use sunscreen, and use is half the battle. Our current buffet has the following:Best Face Block for Beach - Skinceuticals SPF 45 – I won’t go to the beach or bike riding without this on my...
