When Brie Larson showed up to the Academy Awards on Sunday night, she did so with a gleam in her eye and a glow on her face. While the honor of presenting a Best Actor award is enough to make anyone shine, her dewy skin and angelic complexion was actually a result of Tracie Martyn, who’s known to manage the skincare of Hollywood and New York’s elite. Squeezed between dress fittings and hair and makeup consultations, Ms. Martyn applied her signature red carpet facial on Ms. Larson just hours leading up to the ceremony.
Ms. Larson wasn’t the only star to have benefitted from Ms. Martyn’s touch last weekend. The New York-based facialist hopped a flight to Los Angeles to work her magic on such faces as Sofia Vergara and Robin Roberts, who interviewed everyone on the red carpet leading up to the event. Ms. Martyn is also known to work with Kate Winslet, Kelly Ripa, Diane von Furstenberg, Riccardo Tisci, Jennifer Jason Leigh and more. Her famous treatment is a result of her collaboration with longstanding partner Marius Morariu, a nutritionist with a background in science. In 1999 they came together to create a treatment that fused an element of pampering with result-driven performance.
