Summer comes early!

Fed up of the dark, dowdy and miserable winter time colours and clothing?  Here at VIVO, we definitely are!

So we are introducing you to an easy, effective and instant way to brighten up your look and bring summer back early.

VIVO Highlighter, Baked Bronzer and Golden Days Bronzer are here to give you an instantly bronzed goddess glow... who said you can’t have that just-stepped-off-the-plane look all year around?!

The Highlighter works best on cheekbones to give you that wide awake look (even the morning after the night before!)

Paired with the Baked Bronze in shade 3, lightly dusted as a powder all over, you will achieve a natural base.

Next, apply the Golden Days Bronzer by brushing along your cheekbones to enhance your features and lightly blended in to the rest of the face with a large brush to finish the look. 

Once you have used these gorgeous products, you won’t ever leave your house without them.  They are a definite make-up bag must have for any girl who wants to have a bright and bronzed summer look, even on the darkest of days.

Tortoise Shell Nail Art

Gorgeous tortoise shell effects were spotted on the nails of Henry Holland models at London Fashion Week for AW-13... SWOON!

So feeling inspired by nail art and all things fashionable over here at VIVO, we got playing with our fave nude shades to create a tortoise shell pattern of our own! 

We lined up shades Tall Order, Fantasy, Hero and Looking Glass ready to paint...

Step 1
We painted our nails with our favourite nude shade 'Fantasy' as a base shade

Step 2
Carefully dot small blobs of 'Tall Order', 'Hero' and 'Looking Glass' on top of the base shade

Step 3
Repeat Step 2 to create a messy colour mix

Step 4
Finish with a slick of clear Top Coat, for a long-lasting and glossy shine

Will you give this on-trend look a try? We want to see your cool nail art! Tweet us your pics to @VIVOCosmetics

New Year Make-Up Resolutions!

Happy New Year! Hope you’re all having a great start to 2013, so far.  Now, I bet you’ve all already started with your boring detoxes and new year resolutions, so I thought I’d help you with some fun make-up resolutions that’ll help you look nothing less than fab and gorgeous.  You can thank me later ;-)

Banish dull, tired skin by mixing a pea-sized amount of Highlighter with your foundation, for an instantly effortless glow.  

Reduce the amount of foundation you use by applying a primer first – this helps make-up glide better and last longer!

Fake eight hours sleep with a touch of Under Eye Roll-On Concealer.  The clever roller ball gently massages upon application and cools, for instantly de-puffed, brighter, wide-awake peepers.

Tackle winter-parched, grey complexions with a creamy blusher.  The Cheeky Cream Blushers come in three irresistible shades and are incredibly hydrating too.   Just blend with your finger tip on the apple of your cheeks for a warm, rosy finish.

Wear a different lip colour every day for no reason at all! Let’s face it, colour cheers everyone up and a pretty pout is super easy to achieve… especially with our huuuuge range of lippies! From the vinyl-like Lacquer Shine Lipglosses to the statement lips Matte Lipsticks, there’s a shade to suit every skin tone and style.

I hope these help to transform your make-up routine! Let me know how you get on and any other make-up resolutions you will be making this year - tweet me @vivocosmetics and hash tag #VIVONYresolution

Don't forget, there's also an amazing online sale, so don't miss out on HALF PRICE palettes & more!
