Total Guide to Reading has now Launched!

Tuesday, 28 October 2014

Follow my blog with BloglovinWe're so pleased over at Total Towers - our fifth site has just gone live! (whoop whoop!)

As Halloween is just around the corner, we've been busy with that too. With the help of my colleague Dan Flay (model), we've put together a great little tutorial on how to achieve the perfect skeleton makeup! All you need is a white and black face paint, a sponge and a couple of brushes. To see how we created the look from start to finish click on the image and you'll be transported to the tutorial! Easy peasy!

It is on all our sites, but as Total Guide to Reading is the newest (and we're all pretty excited about it) I thought i'd give you the link to this one. Feel free to have a look around the site and see the best places to listen to Jazz, go for Sunday Lunch or even what to do on a Rainy Day!

Dermatude Facial with Bloomin Beautiful

How does Meta Therapy work?

Working as a Beauty Editor definitely has some fab perks, getting to try new and excitement treatments is by far the best one.

Working with Total Swindon means I've been able to work with some fantastic experts in the beauty field, and none more so than Caroline from Bloomin Beautiful (a rather fabulous beauticians based in Swindon).

I first went into Bloomin Beautiful to experience an Environ Facial and skin scan - which was great. You can read my full review here. The skin scan was a great way of really looking into your skin's health, and was very useful in helping you decide on the right products best suited for your skin type.

My biggest problem, apart from dreaded hormonal breakouts, is the slight scaring I have on my cheeks and forehead. I had never really thought much about how to improve the appearance of these, as I assumed the only way would be expensive (and painful) laser treatment.

That is before I was introduced to Dermatude - which I really knew very little about. Dermatude is a type of Meta Therapy that involves making lots of tiny, (as in so small you can’t see them), micro-perforations on the top layer of the skin. Now this might sound painful, but I can assure you it really wasn’t too bad at all – waxing hurts a lot more!
