Are you going with Hamish to the Logies? What is your skin care preparation for something like this?
I am indeed going to the Logies! I am so proud of my dude that I have genuinely considered having a t-shirt made saying “VOTE ONE BLAKE!” but then I realised people might just think I am a really passionate Blake Lively fan.
The Logies are both a terrifying and thrilling notion for a lady, and they require more preparation (and avoidance of carbohydrates) than one might imagine. But oh THE FUN! If you can remember what getting ready for your school formal was like, it’s a bit like that, but on Red Bull. My favourite part is the flight down to Melb the day before, in which the plane heaves with Home and Away stars, all carrying dress and suit bags.
Now. You are right to ask about skin care preparation, Bianca. Because while makeup might (“does”) work wonders, I will always advocate and pursue a pretty excellent canvas first. Makeup sits so much better on glowy, healthy skin. And in close up photos, it makes a big bloody difference. Just ask any bride. (Except Kim Kardashian. She might be a little touchy.)
I always do the same thing leading up to a big event, or book tour: book in a bunch of Omnilux Revive sessions. I write about this habit extensively in Amazing Face, so I apologise to those who already know this and who are now scrolling up to read another blog post. We’ll miss you.
Omnilux is a pizza-box sized lamp of very bright light which you lay under, eyes closed, goggles on, for 20 minutes. It is entirely non-invasive, non-painful (it feels like you are laying under the Mediterranean sun, in fact) and you can walk out and get on with your day immediately. (The REAL results shine through the next day.)
