Our 12th and final day of beauty brings us to LBF co-founder, Victoria Fantauzzi. What can we tell you about Victoria that you don't already know? She's visionary in her ideas and passionate about science and discovery. Victoria has claimed to have been born with a compass in her mouth and loves to be on the road talking to people about their towns, cities, food, and culture. When she's not traveling you can find her at the studio working with new ingredients or reading stacks of journals, articles, and studies on the latest discovery for consideration in our formulas. We asked Victoria about the top items on her holiday wishlist and she added a little extra that we think will make some of our fans and customers pretty excited. Read on...
1. Haute Hippie Embroidered Tunic-$365
"I'm a bohemian at heart and I'm always attracted to flowy romantic tops, but with an edge. I adore this Haute Hippie tunic with the red embroidery for a fun weekend look over dark denim or in the summer over a swimsuit at the beach."
"I think drop statement earrings are lovely if you're wearing your hair up or down and since I'm constantly wrapping my hair in a top knot these beautiful silver and gold earrings with delicate vermeil beads are something I would love to have."
"If I could have it my way and my budget allowed, I'd live like Oprah and have beautiful flowers delivered every week. Jayson Home in Chicago makes the most beautiful arrangements and I once was able to make a beautiful arrangement last for two weeks! Flowers are still so very impressive to me and as my Mom always says, I'd much rather enjoy them while I'm alive than when I'm dead."
"I use everything in our product line which means I can swear by our products and stand by them proudly. After treating a little fine line that began to develop on my forehead and is now nonexistent, I know of the power that some of our ingredients are capable of in skin healing and repair. So it is with that same enthusiasm that we'll be introducing a skincare color line with incredible skin enhancing capabilities in 2013. It occurred to both Karen and I that we wanted gorgeous makeup with the same amazing ingredients we use in our skincare and we're working on bringing our customers that very thing in the new year. It's very exciting!"
