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 applyingVotre 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).
