Bathroom Vanity Tour and Most Used Beauty Products
This week's video was shot on my iPhone. Who knows what happened, but the viewing window is very narrow. Nevermind, you still get to see what's on my vanity and I also have written it out for you on the side panels (handy, that). I have a terrible cold this week, which is why my narration sounds so nasally and subdued. But enough about the backstory... let's get into the discussion!
I tend to only keep the products I use in heavy rotation and/or the most beautiful products I have on display on my vanity. The rest goes in the drawers in the vanity or the cabinet underneath. So you will see makeup/ haircare and beauty products in this video, but those aren't the only ones I use, they just happen to be what I am currently using the most. We don't have a lot of storage in our bathroom. In fact, this vanity is all we have (no shelves, no medicine cabinet, etc.) so I have to make it work.
Please Note** This is probably the most I've ever had on top of my vanity. Half of the products shown in this video are normally stored away in my drawers but I kept them out to show you what I'm loving lately. So this is a bit of a dual-purpose blog post.
Everything in this video has been purchased by me (except for the perfume, which was a gift from Mr. Connoisseur). I am including links where necessary.
Here's what's on my vanity:
Orchids! (of course)
Various orchid pots to store makeup brushes/ tooth paste
Mason Pearson Hairbrush (Investment piece but nothing compares. I mean nothing. Let me know if you want me to do a video on mine.)
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer spf 20
Aquaphor (I have had some eczema on my hands this winter... total bummer. This helps.)
Sephora eyebrow powder in blonde
MAC Prep & Prime natural radiance base (I'm loving this primer!)
Jurlique Redness Rescue Calendula Cream (You know I love calendula. This cream is wonderful.)
YSL Top Secrets BB cream (I've tested a few BB creams... this one is my favorite by far.)
Epicuren Volcanic clay face mask
Éminence Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer (The most magnificent moisturizer ever. Is that being too dramatic?)
Éminence Clear Skin Probiotic Masque
CHANEL Perfection Lumière Foundation
NARS Dolce Vita lipstick
MAC Dazzleglass in Bare Necessity
Hourglass lipstick in Vintage
Theodent Fluoride-free toothpaste (I get this at Whole Foods.)
Balenciaga Florabotanica (A present from Mr. Connoisseur. Gorgeous scent. Perfect for spring and, dare I say it, is rivaling my beloved Stella.)
Éminence Calendula Oil (and my love affair with calendula continues...)
Living Proof Prime Style Extender(for hair)
Simple cleansing facial wipes
Ecover lavender hand soap (I love this soap!)
Voilà! If there's anything you like the look of and want to know more about, leave a comment below and I'll try to do another more in-depth beauty video discussing it.

If you'd like to join our book club in February, make sure you read The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer.
Last Friday I reunited with photographer extraordinaire, Kevin McIntyre, to shoot the new author photo for my next book jacket. The fabulous Rita Montanez did my makeup for the day. She airbrushed my foundation... it was pretty amazing.
I can't wait to show you the finalized pictures. Thank you Kevin and Rita!
This week I would love to know... what's on your vanity? What are your most used beauty products? Tweet, Instagram, or facebook me pictures of your vanity and/or most used beauty products using the hashtag #DailyConnoisseur
