The Week #7

The Week in Instagram @ViviannaMakeup: The dot to dot mani // Editing my luminous skin lineup // I went to Paris. I purchased Bioderma. Standard // Seriously organised makeup, set up by someone with similar OCD-esque tastes as mine in presentation, courtesy of Clarins // Bobbi Brown backstage at Orla Kiely AW13  // The guide. The lipstick // Baking up a monster of a cookie with Rafael // Macaroon feasting at Angelina’s // Sephora on Champs-Élysées, I practically ran there

Product Pick of the Week: Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser – another week, another base I’ve rekindled my love for. Hand on my heart, I can safely commit and say that a tube of this will always be hanging around in the stash. It’s just sorta perfect. Light coverage, a dewy finish – the epitome of ‘no makeup makeup’, my fave.

Blog Post of the Week: A blog that veers more off the well beaten track filled with all the usual suspects, is that of Norwegian model Hanne, called Beautylovin’. Warning: she’s stunning, and this in turn paired with her spot on beauty picks will have you adding to the wishlist in just one eye-scan of the homepage.

Must-Watch of the Week: Cara Delevingne being washed with Burberry beauty, is there a more perfect video? It’s an oldie, but a goodie and it’s got me riffling through my drawers to fish out my Burberry Eye Definer in Golden Brown.

Added to the Wishlist: After amazingly just surviving with a window browse and coming away empty handed at Sephora, it seems my latest wish to be a little more frugal in the purchasing department may be coming true. So no new additions to the wishlist this week. I know – who am I? Although I did of course pick up a few things at City Pharma in Paris…

  • celine black

    Can you please make a blog post about all the places you visited in Paris? I’m going soon and I’d love to know some cute places to go X

  • Good on you for leaving Sephora empty-handed (I couldn’t have done it, and I have one just around the corner from where I work)!  Can’t wait to hear about what you got, even if it wasn’t much 🙂

  • I commented on a pre-paris post of yours saying that the weather here was gorgeous, the minuet I stepped outside I realised how badly it had turned woops!! It has started snowing again here, bloomin’ freezing !  I hope you sampled some hot chocolate from Angelina’s while you where there, both the chocolate and salted butter caramel macaroons are heaven too!  (I must stop this, mouth watering).
