  • Alicia Keys - 2013 Sundance Film Festival

    Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose used Votre Vu products to create the look for Alicia Keys’ surprise appearance at the 2013 Sundance premiere for ‘The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete’.

    “For the look of Alicia’s surprise appearance at the premiere of ‘The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,’ we wanted to go for a very simple, fresh and modern look.

    I first applied the Votre Vu Love Me Deux in St. Tropez.  Then I lightly dusted the peachy pink blush from the Beaute en Bronze  blush/bronzer duo.  This gave her a very natural, glowing flush because the blush has gorgeous light shimmer in it.

    For her eyes, I lined her waterline with the Le Joli Crayon in Charbon as well as her inner rim and smudged it out a bit to give definition to her eyes while still keeping it soft and simple.  Then I applied the Eiffel Power mascara to her upper and lower lashes.

    Lastly, for her lips, I applied the Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose with my fingers for a very sheer color and then applied a bit of balm over it to keep her lips hydrated and glossy for the evening.”


    Votre Vu is available at www.votrevu.com.

  • ByuTi new salon opening in Brentwood by Jordan Landes-Brenman

                                          My ByuTi Brentwood hair journal

    My byu-ti hairstylist Stacy Ellis gave me a  initial consultation. She gave my waist length hair some long layers, and then used a hair dryer and roundbrush to blow out my naturally wavy hair. Stacy then used a Hot Tools curling iron to create curls, which she then brushed out into soft waves. I loved the results! All products are by Redken and Pureology.

    It is a gorgeous salon and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. I met with the owner Natasha and we talked about the great promo where anytime a guest comes and gets a service they get something in the mail within days after their appointment which includes 3 items: 20% off their next appointment, 20% off any product, and a gift certificate for a complimentary service for a friend to use to get a service at their salon. Byu-Ti is very into giving back to their customers, their community and really places a high value on customer service.

    ByuTi’s new salon opening in Brentwood is located at 11740 San Vicente Boulevard, floor 2, Los Angeles California
