The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: Head to toe Zara, standard // You look good in that hangers // My new love, Diptyque’s Amber // You seen my NY vlog? // My current reading list – you sensing a theme? // A catalogue of nail colours fresh off the Burberry SS14 runway // A birthday gift from the lovely Lily  // Zara is a dangerous place right now // LFW-ing it up 

The Week in VDM Posts: The Weekend Post #89: Online Beauty Shopping // Chattin’ Beauty with Lily // Tarte, Tarte and More Tarte // Macadamia Flawless: Weird or Wonderful? // Bourjois Java Rice Powder // Which Tinted Moisturiser? // Red Carpet Manicure // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder: Now I Get It… // USA Beauty Shopping List  

Product Pick of the Week: MV Organics Jojoba Oil* – a multi-purpose worker in a handy ‘shake to dispense’ bottle. With the cooler weather coming in I’ve hit the oils again and this is top of my to grab list at the moment. I’ve been using it as a skin smoothing step post-serum, pre-moisturiser and have been waking up in the morning looking nice and dewy. But the other secret Jojoba Oil has up its sleeve? Waterproof mascara moving. And yes it’s up there with my favourite Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover.

Blog Post of the Week: I’ve really been enjoying ELLE’s coverage of all things Fashion Week, particularly the beauty pages. One gallery that’s worth an eyeball is their ‘Spring/Summer 2014 Nail‘ scrapbook. Everything from nudes to blues to embellishment looks like it’s on the mani menu for next season. I like.

Must-Watch of the Week: Besides the two makeup how-to’s I cobbled together when I worked with The Body Shop last weekend at Fashion Scout London (a smokey and sculpted look and a guide to successfully pulling off pink) – it’s got to be a Lisa Eldridge Pin-Up Tutorial? Hells yeah. A matte red lipped, heavy liner look isn’t my usual makeup menu of choice but under the instruction of Lisa I’m on board. Things I’m now coveting wildly: BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector (the pressed version), Lisa’s nail colour (Dior Le Vernis in Lucky FYI) and that damn Suqqu Cheek Brush. Speaking of shopping lists…

Added to the Wishlist this Week: With Nail Rehab deemed well and truly over I’ve gone back to my polish obsessive ways and can’t seem to get the new Essie drop out of my head. After School Boy Blazer is the one; a deepened navy that almost looks black in some lights – it will be mine.
