Patience may be a
virtue but instant gratification is what we all desire. And
facialist Tracie Martyn and her partner, Marius Morariu, specialize
in fulfilling beauty dreams.
The New York-based couple (professional
and personal) have developed a line of services and products, most
notable the Resculpting FacialŪ, favored by celebrities such as
Madonna and Penelope Cruz as an indispensible pre-event treatment
which took years to perfect but offers immediate results. “He’s
a real purist,” says Martyn of Morariu, who has a background in
nutrition and invests copious time and research into the development
of their high-quality, all-natural products.
The payoff: a fan base
that reads like a CAA client roster, thanks also to Martyn’s
hands-on service and the duo’s shared, long-standing passion
for earth-friendly, non-petroleum based ingredients. With the launch
this month of their Resculpting Body Cream™ - containing
black-currant lipids, green tea, Bulgarian rose water, and amino
acids – Morariu and Martyn fulfill yet another quick fix
fantasy. “(It’s) a super-luxurious body lotion that
smells amazing and is moisturizing and hydrating,” says Martyn.
“And it really does slim you down.” Clients will most
certainly want to test such claims for themselves; luckily the line
is not just for pop stars and actresses. As Morariu says, it’s
also for “regular people who want to look good as soon as
possible.” In other words: get in line.
