What's In Marie Villepin's Makeup Bag?

Beauty Snoop: What's In Your Makeup Bag?

When your famously dashing dad's full name is Dominique Marie François René Galou-zeau de Villepin-and he's prime minister-and your best client is Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy, chances are you travel in rarefied circles. But to her credit, Marie de Villepin goes by the stage name Marie Steiss so as not to be seen as cashing in on her aristocratic roots when she promotes Givenchy's scent Ange ou Démon (that's "Angel or Demon" to us) or struts for Diane von Furstenberg (who was once Princess Diane von F.-do these nobles know how to network, or what?). Having grown up wherever her career-diplomat father was posted (including the U.S. in the '80s), Steiss was well-prepped for a stint as perfume ambassador: "I've seen the way fragrance makes people feel all over the world, and I think it's special," she says. And like any sophisticated nomad, she has refined her style essentials: "I travel only with the basics: cleanser and something to sleep in." Well, un petit peu more than that, as she reveals here. . .

1. KNOTTED SCARF: "When I was little, I got in the habit of stealing my mom's Hermès scarves, tying them in knots, and carrying them around. My mother was able to finally persuade me to use her less expensive bandannas. I still have one! It's my security thing."

2. SKIN DRINK BY GIVENCHY: "Because of all the traveling I do, my skin gets dehydrated-I use a lot of this."

3. ROSEBUD SALVE: "From the earliest age, my parents tried to impress upon me that beauty comes from within, so I really don't use a lot of makeup. This product, however, is always in my bag. I put it on my lips and my eyes for a little bit of shine."

4. LAROCHE-POSAY HYDRANORME: "This is my favorite cream to use at night. I stock up on it when I'm in Paris."
