I love a simplified makeup routine. An eye-catching look is easy to achieve with Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Purple and pink hues are some of the most universally flattering eye shadow colors. But if you have brown or hazel eyes, you know that this color really can make your eyes pop.
For this look, I used only 6 products.
1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
2. Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Magnolia (PK302) on the lid. Read more
Never be afraid to play with color! While neutrals may be a girl’s best friend, and your safest makeup approach, when done right, bright eye shadows lend to an overall brightening effect on your skin.
Here’s what I used to achieve the above makeup look: Read more
Next up on the Faccia Bella Recipe Series
for beautiful skin and a healthy heart is my HEALTHY stuffed eggplant recipe. Growing up, my mom would bake up her mouth watering stuffed eggplant that my taste buds would give a standing ovation, but suffice it to say that my waistline did not. I decided to take this tasty lunch or dinner recipe and revise it to meet healthy standards, while maintaining the taste! When you’re messing with a favorite family recipe it makes one a little nervous, well it made me a little nervous anyway, but I am super excited to report that it did NOT disappoint and I will likely pass this version down to my kiddos (BTW, my seven and ten year old indulged with me and gave it a thumbs up!)

Faccia Bella Recipes SeriesDo you want beautiful young looking skin, a healthy heart, and better overall health?
The good news is that it is easier to achieve than one might think, and is well within the busy woman’s time and budget limits. Does it sound to good to be true? It’s honestly not, and is simply a matter of a few MINOR adjustments to the food you already consume, and perhaps an addition of a few new satisfying recipes.
I don’t believe in making a bunch of huge changes all at once, as that is one factor that typically assures failure. We are creatures of habit, so although one might be able to make a major change for a short time, the idea for keeping with it for the long term (which is where one will see the best benefits) is small modifications to your daily habits and routine that will amount to a big difference in the way you feel each day. Not to mention that holding out long term is where you will see the quantifiable effect on your heart healthy numbers. Read more

This season Votre Vu has put together a breathtaking holiday gift set titled, “Oh come let us adorn yeux.” It is a creatively accurate name to describe this set, which is sure to please any lady who loves quality makeup and a little accessorizing.
The gift set arrives to the door in a bold red box with a stylish thick pearl colored ribbon. Upon opening the box the gift receiver will likely feel like a little girl who won’t know which shiny new toy to grab for first! As the box is filled with a professional dual sided silver makeup brush (tried and LOVE, esp for definition), a vintage looking pearl and crystal cluster kilt pin that can be worn anytime of year, and then TWO limited edition Palette Play eye shadows in Heirloom Silver and Champagne Gold, which both come in their own golden pouch. I really was “oooohing and ahhhhing.” These two colors can be worn on their own, in combination, or as added accents with other shadow colors. Read more
I always feel like the conclusion of the Thanksgiving holiday is congruent with the sound of a gunshot for the 100-meter dash until the Christmas and New Year holidays. I’d usually include Hanukkah in that statement too, but as many of you know this year it began Nov 27th and ends Dec 5th, so I guess my Jewish friends and families shopping alarms went off even earlier this year. At any rate, we will all be attending the various business parties, gatherings, and hopefully at least one night out on the town over the next month til we hit the celebratory wall on Jan. 2, 2014.
