Votre Vu created the look of Parker Posey for the premiere of “Price Check” at the Sundance Film Festival.


Parker Posey must have a painting of herself in the attic that ages. (re: The Picture of Dorian Gray)  This woman does not seem to age at all. Maybe her secret is the host of Votre Vu products she uses.
Here is a quick recap of what Parker wore in the freezing temperatures at the Sundance Film Festival!


Kelsey Deenihan for Votre Vu created the look of Parker Posey for the premiere of “Price Check” at the Sundance Film Festival.  

"Below freezing temperatures is never good for ANYONE'S skin. We get red around the nose, chapped lips, and our skin becomes very dehydrated. Before starting Parker's makeup this morning I had to take my time and replenish the skin's moisture and nourish it with products that would last her all day.

Today I really wanted to make sure I had Parker's skin hydrated and protected for a full day out in the elements, and fully prepared to wear makeup for a long day of press.

I started off by toning Parkers skin with Votre Vu’s Fleur Blanc Tonic. I used a cotton round and moistened it with tonic and wiped it across the face and neck. This refreshing first step leaves the skin silky soft and ready for the following Votre Vu skincare.

 

Tout Le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gelee was applied around the eye and lightly massaged into this sensitive area until fully absorbed. This cooling gel hydrates and comforts the area around the eye while firming and reducing the appearance of fine lines and creases.

 

Tragic Magic was key today. I applied a generous amount all over the face and neck. The lime in the creme clams the skin and reduces redness


Once Parker's makeup was finished I lightly dusted the face with Votre Vu Mineral Powder to set the makeup, decrease shine, and complete the look."

  1. Ok, she looks lovely but... (I apologize in advance for the shouting) OMG WHAT WITH THE HORRIBLY BAD FAKE FRENCH BRAND NAMES NOWADAYS
    "votre vu" sounds so stupid, I can't even come up with an English equivalent to make you understand how stupid this is and how bad it sounds, those 2 words have NOTHING TO DO TOGETHER OMG WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?????

    1. LMFAO!!!!!!! I love when "Imitation French" makes no sense. It's seems like it would be something like "Your Seen" so perhaps they were trying for "Your Look" but Vu is seen and look is chercher so that doesn't seem to make sense. I suck at French grammar so the 2 words together might negate any definition at all. :-D I love that you got so fired up about it. It's EXACTLY what I would have done if I could speak a foreign language!

    2. Not only do I speak French, but it's my mother tongue, I'm a French native!! So it drives me crazy.
      Closest translation of Votre Vu would be "Your Seen" indeed.
      Oh and Fleur is female and Blanc is male so the two words aren't working together either!!!
      Damn!

    4. Fleur blanche. Adjectives vary depending on the genre of the word they describe.

    5. Ah ha! I see now. Well you know us zany Americans and our winning knowledge of French! Better Off Dead French Dinner Scene from You Tube

    6. I ADORE that film! And I completely agree about the ridiculousness of 'classing up' a brand by choosing a foreign name that makes no sense in the actual language! Don't they realise that we exist in a global community and that magazines, blogs etc are read by people of various nationalities and mother tongues? Of course, if this brand is American then it makes a bit of sense as the US can often be guilty of a very isolationist view. I say this as an expat American who when she visits her home state of NH is treated as if she has moved to the moon and is asked (no lie) whether England uses the dollar too!

    7. Reminds me of some Mac names. I think that "Et Tu Bouquet?" is the stupidest name ever in the story of makeup, and from a Canadian brand that's even more ridiculous as a part of Canada speaks French!

    8. Went to a presentation of Votre Vu products a while ago, and I am so glad to see that someone agrees with me about this silly name! Personally, I can't really take a company with a name like this seriously, it seems to be poorly researched from a marketing point of view (they said they wanted to expand to other countries--I can just about guarantee they will be made fun of if they use this name in any French-speaking countries). So it makes me wonder if I should take the company's products seriously. Faux French name = faux French products?? Just find it very irritating that such a supposedly "high-end" product line uses pretend French for its names.

    1. politely butting in: nope, you in French is "vous" not Vu, vu is "seen" and that name has no meaning!

  5. Wow, never had anyone get so upset about the name! Normally the excitement I see is for how great the products are! If it works and does what it claims it's supposed to do, I wouldn't care if they called it ####. But of course I don't think that would sell much, do you?
