Alicia Keys wearing Votre Vu by Nick Barose at Sundance 2013

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’.Coming of age story about two inner city youths, who are left to fend for themselves over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities. Alicia, who produced the film, and Jennifer Hudson, who stars in it, opted for edgy looks consisting of leather tops, skinny jeans and black leather boots and Alicia with that great looking skin she is well known for. Nick gave a run down on how he put the look together. “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 Bronzeblush/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.”
