Léa Seydoux - "Grand Central Terminal" Premiere at 2013 Cannes Film Festival

Celebrity makeup artist Saraï Fiszel created the look for Léa Seydoux for the premiere of “The Grand Central” at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival using Votre Vu products.



Coordinating with Léa’s stylist and hairstylist, Léa’s team decided to go for a femme fatale look, very strong and bold.

It was raining really hard the night of the premiere, so Saraï wanted to make sure that Léa’s makeup would withstand the weather and look fresh and dewy all night. Starting with the base, Saraï first applied a layer of Votre Vu’s Love Me Deux in Paris and then lightly powdered her face with a YSL pressed powder. The trick is to then apply another layer of the tinted moisturizer on top of the powder wherever needed to make sure that it stays on really well and doesn’t look cakey.

Then, Saraï took Votre Vu’s Beauté en Bronze and applied it all over the face with a thick brush that wasn’t too dense. “The brush makes all the difference when applying bronzer to the face because you want it to apply evenly and without patches.” After dusting the bronzer all over, Saraï then went back with a denser brush to contour the face and create a nicer angle.

For Léa’s eyes, because she has such gorgeous eyes with dark pupils, less is more for a fresher look. Saraï started by applying just a few individual lashes to the outer corners and then applying Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power mascara. To create thicker looking lashes, Saraï took the mascara brush and wiped off some of the product with a tissue. She then meticulously applied the mascara making sure to coat each lash and then went back and layered the mascara several times, each time using the same method.

For her brows, Saraï took Votre Vu’s Arch de Triumphe in Warm and applied it with the Votre Vu Brow Brush & Shaper first to her hand to ensure that it didn’t apply too heavily and then filled in her brows lightly to look natural and not too defined.

TIP: Use a lip balm on the eyelids and cheekbones for a fresh, dewy look. “There’s something sexy about a little glossy eyelid and on the cheekbones to make it look like you don’t have any makeup on,” says Saraï. Recreate this effect with Votre Vu’s bébé Duette lip balm!

To finish off the femme fatale look, Saraï created a deep red lip using Votre Vu’s French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in Margaux (available soon).

Discover Another Side of Grapefruit with Fruits & Passion Pompelmo Cucina Al Fresco Collection


The Cucina Al Fresco collection from Fruits & Passion now includes Pompelmo, a fresh and delicately aromatic new fragrance. Pompelmo, which is Italian for grapefruit, takes you straight to the heart of summer. Its accents of crisp green cucumber combine with refreshingly delightful pink lemonade.




Like a Bottle of Fresh Pink Lemonade!

Inspired by the Mediterranean, Pompelmo transports you to a beautiful sun-soaked terrace! Its feature product, Hand Soap ($12.50 - $28.50), comes in a stunning textured glass bottle that is both decorative and recyclable, and can be reused thanks to its useful, yet vintage-esque swing stopper.

Pompelmo and the Benefits of Olives

The key ingredient in Pompelmo is first cold press olive oil. A traditional emollient that nourishes and helps protect skin by infusing it with essential fatty acids. Olive oil creates a protective barrier to moisturize, soften, and smooth skin.


My Thoughts: Perhaps, I'm in the minority, but hand lotion is something that I normally don't use. I find most hand lotions to be greasy (such a weird, icky feeling when I'm doing something such as typing!), thus I end up washing it off. Their hand lotion ($8), however, is probably the best one I've used so far. It is moisturizing, yet absorbs well and it smells really good! I also love their hand soap - it lathers well, yet cleanses effectively and gently.

Uma Thurman's Hair at the Met Ball: Red Carpet How-To’s from Stylist David Babaii

Silver screen siren, Uma Thurman, always looks impeccable on the red carpet. At last night’s annual Metropolitan Ball, she took a walk on the wild side for the punk theme, chaos to couture; and didn’t disappoint in a striking poison ivy green chartreuse Zac Posen gown that was simply stunning. As she crossed the red carpet her fashion was flawless, paired perfectly with a full, sleek, high pony tail, a classic up-do. She trusted her tresses to her long-time stylist, David Babaii. To emphasize Uma’s bone structure and voluminous long hair, David placed a ponytail at the crown of her head for a polished look. To ensure her hair was red carpet ready and fabulously full, David recommended she begin taking Viviscal, a supplement designed to nourish hair and promote growth.



David Babaii commented on Uma’s sleek strands, “What’s been amazing is that I notice the texture of Uma’s hair is different now, the elasticity is better, the density of each lock of hair is thicker and longer, it holds a style better and overall it has been amazing to work with since I recommended she start Viviscal. To be honest, it has made my life easier as her hair is longer, more luscious, and just amazing.”>



To achieve Uma’s sultry look, David blew her hair out straight from root to tip then secured all of her hair in a high ponytail position, to elongate her gorgeous cheek bones with an elastic band.
