The Go-To founder has shared her “VERY EFFECTIVE” skin-care treatment that she has before big events and yes, we are listening.
“If you have a big event or your wedding is coming up, and are interested in what you can do to make your face ZING WITH HEALTH, I rate the following type of treatment for exceptional skin tone and bounce,” the author wrote on her Instagram, alongside a photo of her very glowy face.
So what is the beauty treatment? Well it’s one you may have heard some buzz around recently, but have been too scared to try – dermaplaning.
Foster-Blake explains dermaplaning is “microblading which exfoliates and remove the hair from face for astonishing makeup application”.
Yep, we’re talking face shaving – although not in the way you might be imagining.

LOGIEZZ TIME!! If you have a big event or your wedding is coming up, and are interested in what you can do to make your face ZING WITH HEALTH, I rate the following type of treatment for exceptional skin tone and bounce. It was devised by my facialist Brooke, who knows when I book in for pre-event facials that, A) I’m terrified of cold sores coming up after heat and trauma (two common treatment components), B) my pigmentation flares easily, C) when you own a skin care company and tell people what to do with their skin constantly, people tend to inspect your skin closely, and D) I always need a wee halfway through. Pre-kids I used to have time for a skin ‘program’ before a big event: now I just book in one VERY EFFECTIVE treatment, pack a Go-To sheet mask for the day, and hire a makeup artist who excels in glow. So, in my one efficient hour today I had dermaplaning (microblading which exfoliates and remove the hair from face for astonishing makeup application; I’ve had it a few times and before you ask, no, the hair doesn’t return thicker. That said, if you have sensitive skin or hormonal imbalances leading to excessive facial hair, maybe give it a miss) then some ‘active oxygen’ to calm the skin and also brighten it after the dermaplaning, followed by Laser Genesis (no downtime, reduces redness, brightens skin and most critically, stimulates collagen and elastin in a few days time. Last time I had this I was shocked and delighted at the delayed onset mega glow, which is why I booked this today, so skin is peaking for the Logies on Sunday) and then a peptide mask to soothe and hydrate. And since I am asked sometimes, and understand how hard it is to find good people to tend to your facey landscape, the people I trust in Melbourne are: Brooke and the gang at @meskinandbody, (for all my pigmentation bullshit and also event prep) @melaniegrantskin (for maintenance and for event prep) and @_littlecompany (for a relaxing, nurturing facial.) (In Sydney I swear by @natashatdoublebay and also @jocelynpetroni. Been seeing them for over a decade.) The people I DON’T trust are Daryl and Gavin at Big Gav’s Face Shack.
Rather than taking your blunt underarm razor to your face, dermaplaning is professional face-shaving using a single blade.
Her facial treatment then included “active oxygen… followed by Laser Genesis”. Oh, and then also a “peptide mask to soothe and hydrate”.
This isn’t the first time Foster-Blake, mother to Sonny, four, and Rudy, one, has shared her dermaplaning face treatment.
In 2017, also in the lead up to the Logies, the former-beauty editor similarly documented her post-treatment glow and claimed her make-up looked “like it’s in HD”.
