When Vivianna Does Makeup had a makeover almost a year ago now, I snapped a picture of my best beauty bits displayed in a very blu-tack heavy way for banner purposes. You’ve probably seen the above picture used as a title page in my ‘Weekly Vlogs’, on the top of my YouTube channel, Twitter page, Facebook – the lot. It crops up everywhere. And an oft-asked question is what products the image contains, so today I’ve wracked my brain, had a loot of my stash and will leave you a little list below just incase you’ve ever wondered. The mystery is finally revealed…

Right I’m going to go from left to right (though my old driving instructor will tell you I’m not the best at distinguishing between the two) and slap bang in the top left corner we have the Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad in Burnished Amber which is sat directly next to the CHANEL Le Vernis in Rouge Noir. Underneath them both there’s Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation in 6 and AERIN’s Lipgloss in Sweet Pea along with a brush from my CHANEL Les Beige Healthy Glow Powder in No.40 which is just to the right of it with By Terry’s Ombre Blackstar in Brown Perfection in between. You still with me? Going back up to the top there’s Charlotte Tilbury’s Powder and Sculpt Brush, with a Tom Ford Lipstick below it (I’m unsure of the colour, but Wild Ginger is my favourite), a Shu Uemura Lash Curler to the side of it and a peek of a AERIN Holiday Style Palette back up the top. Oh and don’t forget Giorgio Armani’s Eye to Kill Mascara to the right hand side of it all.

The cream shadows to the right of the picture are probably the items that I get quizzed on the most, so without further ado, top to bottom we have: Giorgio Armani’s Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadow in 9, Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour Stay-On Shadow Paint in Pink Zinc, Tom Ford’s Cream Colour for Eyes in Pink Haze and L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe with a peek of YSL’s Touche Eclat hidden in there somewhere.

The VDM title picture mystery…solved.
