by Carole Hallac

Curious about the beauty regime of a hot Brazilian model? Our muse of the week, 22 year old model Viviane Vidal, reveals to the Daily Pamp her beauty secrets.

Tell us about your morning beauty routine.

I always use La Mer as a moisturizer. Before I go out, I put on basic make-up: concealer from Givenchy, some blush, my favorite is Nars in Orgasm, Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara and eye shadows from Mac.

How do you keep in shape?

I do yoga, pilates and I run. I am a vegetarian but I also eat fish for protein. I love Brasilian food but I also like Japanese.

How do you take care of your skin?

In the winter, I use Cetaphil to moisturize my body. For my face, my make-up removal product is from Bioderma, and I use the night serum from La Mer. For sun protection, I love the light milk from La Roche-Posay, 50SPF.For my lips, the great balm from La Mer.

What about your great locks?

Because of my work I have to take great care of my hair. Kerastase products are amazing; to protect my hair from the heat of styling tools I use Chroma Thermique Thermo-Radiance Protecting Milk and to treat split ends, Fibre Architecte dual serum. I am also a big fan of Moroccan Oil and Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil shampoo and mask.

Any other favorite products?

Essie for nail polish, affordable and trendy. I change nail polish all the time. I love red and black especially for winter, but I use neutrals and pastels as well.

Who is your to-go professional?

The Brasilian salon Maria Bonita in Soho, New York. I do it all, hair, nails, massage, the real Brasilian way, which is the only way to go!

Where do you shop for your beauty products?

Sephora, I love to have my make-up done there.

Your fragrance?

Chance, Chanel.

Favorite designers?

Rebecca Taylor, Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone and Current/Elliott.

Jen’s Camouflage Report

………………………………..
In recent years, magazines are showing all types of models, from different nationalities, shapes, sizes and ages. Different has become beautiful. Crooked smiles, moles, scars, athletic builds all have their place in beauty. How refreshing this all is, especially for our children.

However, certain “flaws” are not flattering on anyone, who would want to highlight a pimple or dark circles under your eyes? Here some tricks to camouflage when necessary:

  • I hide my dark circles and blemishes with a bit of liquid foundation (a shade that blends in perfectly) and my favorite concealer from Cle de Peau (a magic stick).
  • I use Proactiv for my acne, it truly has been a miracle worker for me.
  • I use L’Oreal Sublime Bronze self tanner mixed with Nivea Q 10 lotion to make my less than smooth legs appear silky.
  • My hair remains it’s natural color and I use products like Morroccan Oil and Leonor Greyl Mask Orchidee to keep it looking its best.


We all have our little helpers, and there is nothing wrong with it. Confidence after all is always the most attractive feature.
