DEEPDIVE: SKIN NOVA

Meet Skin Nova. Our award-winning skincare-makeup multi-tasking hero which is a radiance imparting makeup primer. There are multiple ways to use this hero product, so we answer all your burning beauty questions from ‘what is a face primer and why do you need one?’, ‘how do I apply a primer?’ and ‘how do I use Skin Nova?’. 

WHAT IS A PRIMER USED FOR?

A makeup primer preps and primes the skin for makeup application, helping it last longer. Some formulas mattify the skin, good for oily skin types, whilst others impart radiance. VIEVE’s makeup primer, Skin Nova does the latter whilst being good for all skin tones and skin types. The universally flattering formula has a subtle, golden hour glow giving you lit-from-within skin.

HOW TO APPLY PRIMER

Jamie loves to apply Skin Nova onto face using her fingers, similarly to a moisturiser, but you can also pump the formula directly onto a brush or sponge if preferred. 

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN SKIN NOVA?

Skin Nova isn’t like your everyday makeup primer. It’s enriched with skin-loving ingredients which make it a skincare-makeup hybrid. Beta Glucan hydrates and soothes the feel of skin whilst Niacinamide brightens the look of dullness whilst improving the look of uneven skin. It’s also imparted with Rose Water which helps to hydrate the skin, giving a healthy-looking glow, and Orchid Extract soothes the skin, giving the look of a radiant complexion. 

HOW DO I WEAR SKIN NOVA?

There are multiple ways to use Skin Nova. The incredible, hard-working ingredients and radiant formula mean you can wear it alone for hydrated, glowing skin for those no makeup days but when you want a little pick me up. You can also apply it before your foundation as a primer to give a radiant finish, helping your makeup go on more smoothly or you can mix it with your favourite base to customise your glow. 

CAN I USE SKIN NOVA AS A HIGHLIGHTER?

Jamie’s top tip for Skin Nova is to press it onto the tops of your cheekbones as a finishing touch and a subtle, dewy glow look. Want to dial up the glow? Add Nova Glow Highlighter on top with the VIEVE 125 Highlight Brush.
