From GOOD FOOD to GOOD FUN, HERE’S WHAT WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT this JANUARY. Basecamp Hotel Nestled at the foot of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada mountains in South Lake Tahoe, California, the Basecamp Hotel is just that for nature lovers and winter-sports enthusiasts. While the Great Indoors Room, left, with its green-grass carpet, birch-forest wallpaper, and canvas tent, is tongue in cheek, the hotel knows its customer: The 50 rooms are outfitted with gear racks, energy bars, and ultracomfy custom-made mattresses for a solid night’s sleep after hitting the slopes. basecamphotels.com. Good Food Awards Sustainable, delicious food is the focus of this annual food competition in San Francisco. After a ceremony to honor American food producers in nine categories, including cheese, pickles, and spirits, attendees can visit the marketplace to shop the winners’ specialties. January…

editor’s letter

makeshift studio AT PRESS TIME, the East Coast had been hit by one of the worst storms of the century. Though the damage in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy will continue to unfold in the weeks and months to come, I hope to hold on to the sense of generosity and community spirit that many of us experienced during some of the darkest days (literally, as so many were without power) following the storm. In addition to volunteering time and resources to various rescue operations, people opened up their homes and their kitchens to friends and family—as well as to perfect strangers. As many living rooms became mini evacuee camps, beautiful meals were made to warm up bellies, calm rattled nerves, and distract momentarily from what had been individually or collectively…

inside the cosmetics case

MAKEUP IS ONE OF LIFE’ great enhancers—a smooth application of a tinted primer, a soft brush of bronzer, a thin line of eyeliner, a light lashful of mascara, and you are ready to step out of the house looking really good and feeling fresh and pretty. My daily ritual is one that has evolved over time and after many television makeup sessions with some very talented makeup artists. I have developed a modern routine and an ability to look polished with a minimum of effort and time. It begins with a clean face, well moisturized with tonic, serums, and a rich day cream. I pop in my contact lenses and get started. My step-by-step routine and new and classic favorites are featured on these pages. Because of my natural curiosity about new…

“I take a long shower each morning, dedicating a good 20 minutes to my skin routine, so my makeup regimen needs to be fast and foolproof—less than 10 minutes from beginning to end.” FACE STEP 1: SUNSCREEN Protection from the sun is a must. Sunscreen is the first layer before my makeup, so I use a sheer formula with a substantial SPF. Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50, $32, skinceuticals.com. STEP 2: PRIMER I want my skin to feel dry and smooth so my fingers glide across it. AmorePacific’s tinted moisturizer lets them do just that. I apply it all over with a brush, which leaves a sheer finish. On weekends, this and a touch of bronzer are all I wear on my face. AmorePacific Moisture Bound Tinted Treatment Moisturizer SPF 15, $70, sephora.com. MAC Cosmetics…

maine gem

Homespun French linen from the 1860s, tailors’ scissors from the late 1800s, and 19th-century wooden block-printing stamps are among the offerings at Marston House, in the coastal town of Wiscasset, Maine. An inn and antiques shop occupying a perfectly spare 18th-century clapboard home, the place has become an obsession of sorts among our editors. (Turn the page and you’ll see why.) Marston House is open from May to October, so plan now for a spring or summer trip. If you can’t wait, check out the inventory—and find plenty of interiors inspiration—at marstonhouse.com.…
