The Week Template

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Evening out makeup, MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Eclair comes to the rescue again // Legs out and wearing orange. Madness // Recent purchases; expect something a little fashion-y popping up on the blog soon // Apple and cinnamon cream tea  - now that’s what I’m talking about // Photoboothing with my chicas Lily and Amelia // The Charlotte Tilbury approved smokey eye edit // The prettiest palette I have laid eyes on, Jouer’s Blushing Beauty // Another OOTD, am I feeling ok? // Promoting my favourite polishes into my new SewLomax pouch

Product Pick of the Week: Dior Nudeskin BB Creme (yep I’m going there again) and Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation – a face base mix made in heaven. The Dior gives the dew, the Armani the coverage and together they have my face evened-out and reflecting in all the right places. And that’s it, I promise not to mention the Dior for a week month.

Blog Post of the Week: No so much a single post, but more a website that I can’t quite believe I haven’t mentioned yet – xoVain. Created by the xoJane team (another ‘oh gawd I’ve lost an hour of my life to it‘ read), it’s a beauty-centric hub of features written in a way that often has me chuckling away behind my screen. ‘I Found a Two-Inch Hair Sticking Out of my Chin‘ is a personal favourite.

Must-Watch of the Week: I’ve been enjoying waking up to updates from the panels at Charlotte Tilbury’s Makeup House of Rock ‘n’ Kohl event every morning. The Mary Greenwell and Lisa Eldridge chat look amazing. Did anyone go and take notes? A copy would be greatly appreciated.

Added to the Wishlist: Can I cheat and just say everything from the Whistles/Zara/COS sales? Please. I’ll fight you for the Whistles Chi Chi Block Heel Sandals?

    Thank you SO much for bringing xoVain into my life – ‘wasted’ (in my mother’s words, at least) a whole day reading it like, but it’s such an amazing blog!!

    Great post Anna (: I know I’m going to crack and buy the Dior Nudeskin any day now if you keep raving about it as you have been, so my purse would appreciate the break! ;)
