The Week #29

The Week Template

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: My date night face // I’m back on the Cream Teas again // The Roast – a.k.a) the cause of why I haven’t been able to button up my jeans // A mini ‘What’s In My Bag’ // Yep, more food // Smudge and scribe // A Topshop-centric OOTD complete with a ‘can’t be arsed to wash my hair’ bun // After being a bit ‘meh’ about it before, giving the CHANEL Vitalumiére Aqua Foundation another run // The S13 edit from Butter LONDON, Bit Faker (top left), is a beaut

The Week in VDM Posts: The Weekend Post #82: The Wardrobe Clear-Out // Summer Style Staples // Beach Babe (I Wish) Lock Line-Up // The Perfect Blush Brush // Face Atelier Ultra Foundation // The (Wash-Out) Rainbow Ombré // Fake Tan Faux Pas Fixer // Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks // The Attack of the Eyeshadow Crayons

Product Pick of the Week: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 – like photoshop in a palette. And with my skin deciding to get a little raging in the past week I’ve been dabbing on and blending them away with this. Dry enough not to budge, but malleable enough to blur away any tell-tale edges and redness. A full-blown ode is in the works.

Blog Post of the Week: When a post when Meg appears in my feed I know it’s good’un before I’ve even clicked to read. A complete class act in the beauty blogging world and her most recent post did not disappoint; an extremely well researched article on SPF stripped of the bumf and bringing the need to know.

Must-Watch of the Week: With my Ben & Jerry’s belly getting a little too much for my jeans to hold in I’ve decided to kick start my fitness routine again. Running just makes me feel a little vommy as I’m that unfit. So I’m easing in with the eight week fat burn routine from Fitness Blender. I’m one week in and after completing the Cardio Bootcamp Workout yesterday I’m struggling to put my jeans on this morning. So sore.

Added to the Wishlist this Week: For some reason I’m fighting an urge to purchase something outrageously orange for my lips right now. Not an orange laced red, like a full on tangeriney pout – any colour suggestions?

    Hi, I was wondering do the Butter London polishes have a wide essie style brush?

    Thanks Anna:)

    Check out my blog if you can.

    Do you have MAC’s Morange? I thought you did, and that’s as orange as I go. As well as with Hourglass Opaque Rouge in Riviera, but I thought I’d seen that around VDM as well.

    Love Maybelline’s Vibrant Mandarin from their Vivid range. It’s what I gravitate towards when I want a bright orange and is definitely great value for money with the price tag! xo

    I love your week roundups, I’ve discovered some other cool blogs that way! I also love the Nats pleasures of Palette, isn’t that part of your date night face?
    Try Dior for orange lipsticks; I bought one that I thought was reddy-orange on the internet this summer, and was so disgusted at how horribly ORANGE it was that i threw it away…cannot remember the name though!!!
