My Model Beauty Routine: Marie Venturi
How do you look after your hair?
I alternate my shampoo, but I usually use a creamy shampoo and conditioner for dry hair. It really gives shine and colour to the hair, it’s ideal for reflecting lighting. I wash my hair two to three times a week and if not before each casting and each job.
Do you use hair treatment products?
Yes, I love using hair masks! I tend to use a mask or hair oils to stop my hair from getting too dry.
You were our model in the tutorial videos. Which was your favourite to shoot?
I loved the twisted chignon! I love the Rowenta for Elite Model Look range, they deliver great results and are super easy to use. I love watching tutorial videos - it’s always good to learn how to do new styles and I love switching up my look!
What do you use to care for your skin in the mornings?
I apply toner onto cotton wool for my eyes and soak them with blueberry water to remove dark circles and pockets, which I put in the fridge the day before to cool. I finish by applying face cream, ready for the day. I use toning lotion and a face scrub at least two to three times a week. I usually use a mask afterwards and keep that on for about ten minutes to exfoliate and soothe the skin.
What is your evening skincare routine?
I use makeup milk and a face cream, one that’s for a mixed skin-type, to rehydrate the skin that may dry out during the day because of makeup or changes in temperature.
What do you love to eat?
I love mixed juices, usually made from tomatoes, carrots, spinach and ginger. A typical dish that I like to eat is chicken salad and grilled vegetables with mushrooms, avocado and small pieces of grapefruit seasoned with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And I love sushi! Seafood is full of vitamins, low in calories and above all, super tasty!
Do you eat anything specific for your skin or hair?
I use a lot of olive oil in my kitchen and I’ve replaced traditional crisps with almonds so that’s very good for nourishing the hair. I also take two vitamins that contain keratin as protein for my nails and hair.
