Truth in Aging: Have you seen my brows?

Big, strong, bold brows are hot – as evidenced by my trip to New York Fashion Week. I used to have dark prominent brows, but recently I’ve been looking in the mirror and they seem to have disappeared! Read more here

Cat Eyes for All

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

This cover of the New York Times Fashion Magazine this past Sunday epitomizes fall to me. Dramatic cat eyes go with all of the deep, rich hues of fall. Burgundy dresses, high chic leather boots, furs and shearlings, the glamour of fall demands smoky and daring eyes. It used to be hard to get this look, requiring the perfect steady hands plus the perfect mix of water and eyeliner. No more – there are so many new, one-step, easy to use products. From Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour to NARS’ Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, drama and glamour is...

Got Laura?

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I was doing a little spring cleaning of my makeup and skincare drawers and realized that I am a Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in nude addict. I had seven tubes that were 90% used up, what is it about that last 10%? Hydrating and light, I love this tint. It evens out my skin tone, without feeling like I have caked on foundation. The proof is in the picture.

Yearround Lip: The Perfect Nude

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

Our Marlton team showed me a lip combo that I just can’t seem to stop wearing. Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Chestnut with Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Baby. A warm, light-brown nude – this goes with every outfit from summer through winter. It’s just a hint of color so I don’t look dead, without being a color. At night, I can put any sort of mauve lipgloss over this to pop up the glamour. (Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Blush is perfect) With all of the nude lips showing on the runways for spring – this one is...

Secret Cure for Winter Time Skin Blahs

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

My skin definitely has the winter time blahs: pale, pigmented, dull. The team at our Wildwood, Bethesda location (5 min from my house) recommended that I try Laura Mercier’s new Crème Smooth Foundation in Warm Ivory. It is a beautiful whipped foundation that comes in a jar and gives the most amazing coverage and moisture without looking pasty. It is so easy to put on – I use my fingers, just like putting on a moisturizer. My skin looks perfectly even and flawless – who doesn’t want that? This is my new secret weapon pre-work and pre-going out at night....

Sometimes You Just Need a Pro

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

Last Saturday was my 40th birthday party. I honestly usually do my makeup myself for all events, but decided that I would go to bluemercury and have it professionally done. I know it sounds funny since I own bluemercury, but honestly, I usually do not have time to have someone do it.I must say, there is nothing like having a great makeup artist do your makeup. I wanted a heavy smoky eye and nice, clear, even skin that lasted all night. I raced into our Bethesda location at 4:30 and Kate went to work. I was out in 30 minutes...
