Positioned in the hectic backstage atmosphere, Orveda’s calming and skin-repairing rituals formulated the basis of each beauty look as well as carefully cleansing each face post-show with its official Make-Under™ routine.
This special routine brings an essential “from within” glow back to the complexion, dewiness and a beautiful canvas for makeup application and ensuring skin remains hydrated and glow when makeup is removed.
Three seasons later, Orveda’s efficient routine has been the go-to skincare at each Giambattista Valli show, proven to heal and repair compromised, over-processed and tired skin. Whether you are creating a smooth base for makeup application or cleansing away the day, follow this routine at home with the below steps from Orveda Healers.
Make-Up Base Routine
Step 1: ORVEDA Cleansing Bamboo & Enzymatic Water
An ideal first step in any makeup-removing routine, our Cleansing Bamboo & Enzymatic Water has been designed with a natural pH to cleanse, refresh, and soothes all skin types, including sensitive skins. The addition of niacinamide, known for its soothing and illuminating properties, means this no-rinse formula continues to work for your skin.
“Apply to our non-woven compresses and sweep across skin to lift makeup, including waterproof makeup, and remove daily pollution accumulated on skin. I love that skin feels refreshed and the no rinse formula makes it perfect for cleansing super quickly or without running water. If you have heavier eye makeup, I would recommend ORVEDA Eye Make-up Remover & Pro-Fortifying Lash Serum to be used first.”
Step 2: ORVEDA The Healing SapTM
Providing 8h hydration, illumination and brightening as well as strongly reducing the appearance of pores in oily or combination skins, The Healing Sap™ is our “glow shot” that acts on the origins of healthy looking skin. The glow is instantly visible, making it an essential for reviving tired stressed skin that has been put through its paces.
“Applying with hands is my favourite way to apply this product as it allows for more self-massage, which in turn stimulates a better glow. As well as the face and neck, which all of your skincare products should be applied to, I also take The Healing Sap™ across the décolletage and even hands – the hydration beats a lot of traditional hand creams out there and as it sinks in there is absolutely no ‘greasy’ residue.”
Step 3: ORVEDA Eye Unveiler 422TM
Highly concentrated with 14 actives at 30%, Eye Unveiler 422™ also contains a bio-identical mix of lipids – 4% sterols, 2% ceramics and 2% essential fatty acids, in a ratio that favours sterols to improve the superficial barrier of fragile skins. It replenishes and illuminates the entire eye area, while also improving the appearance of winkles, dark circles, hollows and signs of fatigue.
“Eye Unveiler 422 is a fabulous pre-makeup as a base as it extends wear-time and will not interfere with other products. Lightly dip the pinpoint applicator into the jar so that product coats one side, this gives you the perfect amount. Gently pat three dots on the upper eye lid and three dots under the eye, however you can also apply to brows and lashes to boost growth, thanks to our special combination of tetra peptide and clover flower extract. Finish with the smooth silicone tool, softly sweeping up and out, to provide a taughtening effect.”
Step 4: ORVEDA The Prebiotic Emulsion™
Designed to preserve skin’s moisture and to help prevent natural moisture loss, this emulsion soothes and provides intense hydration, thanks to a combination of meadowfoam seed oil, botanical glycerin and hyaluronic acid.
“What’s so great about The Prebiotic Emulsion™ is that it is such a multi-tasker. Apply three pumps for everyday or use it as an intensive mask when combined the reusable silicone mask. It even increases makeup longevity and provides such a glowing, dewy makeup base that skin never looks caky or too heavy.”
