3 Ways to Turn Up Your Beauty Look

You have an event coming up and you want to find the perfect dress, the highest heels, a good blowout, and oh, what should you do with your makeup for it? While you decide, here are a few products that can add a nice touch to your look that you might not have thought about.

No matter what trait you are looking to show off, I have some suggestions that have totally worked for me below.


Make legs look silky smooth – temps will be warming up soon so skirts will be getting shorter again. Give legs and extra extra with one of these. It makes you look like you are wearing stockings when you’re not. VOTRE VU Silk Stockings in Classic Bronze ($38/3.38oz @ or NARS Monoi Body Glow I ($59/2.5oz @,

What I’m Loving Right … Now!

($35/15ml @ – this new-to-me line is made to work with your current skin care products in that it has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin to nourish and fix that targeted area. This SubQ Eyes contains some major ingredients to fix all around the eyes – puffiness, dark circles, hydration and fine lines. Yes, I could list all the ingredients but really, they’ll probably mean as much to you as to me. The proof is in the … serum and this one works and doesn’t take weeks to see results. So keep using the products you’re using and just add this eye serum!

BEAUTY 360 Portable Manicure Kit ($9.99 @ – this kit contains 5 interchangeable tips for giving yourself a manicure or pedicure at home: Buffing Tool, Emery Tool, Shaping Tool, Fine Shaping Tool and a Cuticle Pusher.

TATCHA Silken Pore Perfecting Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 35 ($68/2oz @ and – just because we’re changing seasons doesn’t mean you should ditch the sunscreen. New from Tatcha is a lightweight and non-comedogenic one that protects skin from both UVA and UVB. This one doesn’t feel greasy and I didn’t have to wait for it to absorb before applying makeup.

BUXOM True Nude Lip Foundation in Bare ($19 @ – not sure how I missed these when they came out a while ago but I’m glad I did. This one shown here in Bare, a chestnut brown, looks like a regular ol’ lipstick but it adheres to lips beautifully and acts more like a liquid lipstick. And it dries down to a super matte finish that doesn’t budget for hours. I’m in! Available in 7 shades

VOTRE VU Silk Stockings ($34/4.06oz @ – nylons are still so uncool to wear but sometimes you want a little color but not a tan. This skin nourisher will give skin a dash of glow and it contains some  nourishing ingredients like vitamin E and extracts of calendula and Saint John’s wort. And what’s great about it is that it won’t wear off until you wash it off.

Review+Swatches - Votre Vu Quad and Dolce & Gabbana Eye Crayon

I’m really feeling this pencil and eye shadow quad together. The colors are just so now!

VOTRE VU Palette Play Eye Shadow Quad Palette in Violette ($42 @ – loving this quad with four very wearable colors: Chiffon (beige), Raw Silk (light mauve), Moiré (purple), Black Velvet (black). Wear them individually or all together or … with DOLCE & GABBANA The Kohl Pencil Intense Kohl Eye Crayon in Dahlia #5 ($30 @ – this medium purple has a nice metallic finish to it that nicely highlights any of the Votre Vu colors in the quad.

Review+Swatches - Fall Colors with Votre Vu Lipstick and Lip Liner

Line lips before? Line lips after? There doesn’t seem to be one clear answer to this conundrum. I’ve always lined before applying lipstick and feel I get a better defined lip this way instead of using it afterward. How do you use your lip liner?

Anyway, I’ve been pretty drawn to fall colors this month and dark vampy colors are really making the scene or rather my lips these days. A duo that is dark enough but not too young for me is from the French Accents collection from VOTRE VU. It’s their French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in Margaux ($23) and the Drawmatic Lip Liner in Sizzle ($21).

The lipstick is one of those looks-darker-in-the-tube-than-on-the-lips dark berry shade and feels so nicely on lips! Using plant waxes and vitamin E, this one goes on smooth and has a hint of vanilla mint to briefly dazzle the nose. To get the smoothest application, make sure your lips are exfoliated and that they are not peeling or chapped as a shade this dark won’t look as good.

I paired this one with the Sizzle liner is a dark chocolate that goes on smoothly and contains avocado oil to nourish and really keeps color in place and curbs feathering, which I need!

Admiring my lips in the mirror wearing these both, I almost feel like they are not vampy enough but maybe at my age that’s a good thing; I get my fix by looking at it in the tube but then get the real world look when I apply it. Thanks for keeping in check, VV! Both @

Review+Swatches - Votre Vu Lip Lustre

I love lipstick so much that the only time I reach for a gloss is when my look is all about the eyes. I guess I just like the pigment lipsticks provide as opposed to the wet look for lips.

A More Tinted Tint from Votre Vu

Votre-Vu-Love-Me-Deux-I admit that I like a little more coverage than the average tinted face moisturizer offers and I think I found it with VOTRE VU’s Love Me Deux Nourishing Moisture Tint & Concealer, from the French Accents line. The packaging is reminiscent of this one, which is muy convenient for toting it around. I mean, how many of us actually carry a concealer with us at all times? Lipstick? Yes. Face Powder? Yes. But concealer? Mmmm, not really, so when you’re giving your face the once over with the powder, dab a little concealer that’s in the cap, under your eyes for an instant perk-me-up. And the Tint has some great ingredients in it like jojoba oils, aloe vera, and honeysuckle extract as well as vitamin E and pure minerals and botanicals in the Concealer. Available in 6 shade duos for $43/25ml Tint, 1ml Concealer @
