Vivianna Does Makeup's Favourites

A self-confessed '{make up} maven, product pusher and lacquer lover' Anna Gardner serves up a daily dose of beauty wit and wisdom on her blog {Vivianna Does Makeup}. We're addicted to her weekly vlogs, beauty hauls and hilarious 'beauty chat' videos (in collaboration with fellow #bblogger Lily Pebbles) - compulsive viewing (and reading) for any self-respecting beauty addict.

Warm, funny and instantly endearing, we aren't the only ones who've fallen for her conversational approach to beauty blogging. With 300,000 subscribers on {YouTube} and 200,000 {Instagram} followers, we bet many of you have already been inspired by her easy step-by-step tutorials, delicious dinner ideas (yep, she's a foodie too!), as well as her rave product recommendations.

So read on to discover which Cult Beauty products she swears by...

MV Organic Skincare Rose Blus Booster
MV Organic Skincare {Rose Plus Booster}

"Like a hug for your skin in a bottle, the ingredients lists reads a little something like this: camellia oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, rose oil... you get the drift. The scent is dreamy and spa-like and of all the oils I use, this is the one that truly gives gloss without grease."


Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Brunette
Anastasia Beverly Hills {Brow Wiz}

"The Anasatasia Brow Wiz was an itch I just had to scratch, and I'm bloomin' happy that I did because now I see what all the fuss was about. The nib is tiny, making it easy to mimic brow hairs and the waxy texture sets things in place with a natural smudge of subtle pigment."


Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
Peter Thomas Roth {Pumpkin Enzyme Mask}

"There are no words for how much I love this mask... but I'll try. After slathering this on just the once I was converted. My skin had a glow to it - even sans moisturiser - it was so smooth that skin care sunk in, make up sat well and even my boyfriend remarked on the difference."


Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara
Fairydrops {Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara}

"If you want something that holds a curl then adds some, this has tiny little (non-irritating - promise!) fibres in the formula, and the curved brush really encourages a good ol' curl. Plus it really is waterproof; no budging or smudging to be seen here."


Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder
Kevyn Aucoin {The Sculpting Powder}

"As a contour this ticks every box - blendable, subtle and a cool-toned mix of grey and brown shades which creates a natural looking shadow on the hollows of the face. it's one of those foolproof products that it's difficult to be too heavy handed with - creating just a hint of realistic cheekbone."


Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts
Therapie {Himalayan Detox Salts}

"A good sleep-guarantee in a tub. Nuff said. I don't even want to think about how many refills I've gone through; I'm not sure I could count them on one hand. A true gem that I doubt I'll ever be without."


The Classic Wet Brush - Black
The Wet Brush {The Classic Wet Brush}

"I can't say enough good things about this brush. I'm not quite sure what makes this better than its rivals, but it glides through my locks and combs out the tangles without a pull or a watery eye in sight."


Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel
Oskia {Renaissance Cleansing Gel}

"My morning skin care weapon of choice, when this pumps out its final blob of cleansing goodness there's always a 'noooooo' that echoes around the flat because my skin just gets so sad without it. Muslined off, it leaves a lovely glow that says 'I went to bed at 7pm' - lies.
