July 14th is a day of celebration to commemorate the storming of the Bastille in France; a day to remember the end of the French Revolution and the beginning of a new era in French history. This past Bastille Day marked the beginning of a new era for those of us in the beauty industry as well. I was joined by beauty writers and addicts alike at the Bakehouse Bistro & Café in the West Village to celebrate the recent launch of the Votre Vu French Accents Premier Color Collection. Known for their high quality makeup made with plant-based ingredients (and no animal testing!), this was my first introduction into the brands cosmetic line — I know them more for their skincare.
The event could not have been any more fabulously Parision — the venue was perfect, the staff was dressed in Marie Antoinette-esque wigs and berets, delicious cocktails were served, and (most notably) there was a beautiful showcase of the French Accents premier color collection on display for all to admire.
